I'd like to, but i doubt we'll see any football games on the east and west coast. Densely populated areas are more at risk.

If we have a season, it'll be played in empty stadiums, in smaller, less populated cities that allow law-enforcement to control and restrict movement of people while enforcing social distancing

The good news is, the NFL will likely protect you from option 1, which could be retitled, "YES! I am a selfish and stupid person."

Poll is missing an option, "No, I wouldn't attend games in that ****pile when I can sit at home, watch on a nice big screen where I can pause, rewind, slow down, flip to other games and have the red zone channel going on another screen."

Was planning on doing two of them this year. For the one game we did last year I put out over $10,000 for the tickets. Can honestly say, I ain't doing that this year lol.  I don't see a lot of people going this year.

For myself right now going would be a no. But what I have learned recently is to take things day by day. On that scale September is a world away.

Well put.  I'm in the same place.  Today is 'no', but tomorrow never knows.

As soon as the cost to go comes down to a reasonable price and not $1k for a family of 4... Nothing to do with health.

It’s way too shaky of a year to do this. Thanks for the past gatherings. Great time and maybe next year!

How many polls need to be done asking fans if they would be comfortable attending games? Enough already. Leave it alone. Stop scaring people. Let this thing play out, then we will see.

If allowed to and assuming there is a season, and assuming all distancing guidelines or whatever are followed, why exactly does that make them selfish and stupid? Lol

Not everyone wants to live their life locked up in their house forever. Shocking, I know.

Until there is a vaccine, I cannot see myself attending any sporting event, concert, or anything where there are that many people gathered in one place. Not worth the risk, no matter how small that risk actually is.

The only issue is a vaccine may never arrive. That's not exactly guaranteed. 

I think with those types of events, they'll limit how many people can actually be there and separate the seating.

Wouldn’t be surprised if games played without fans becomes the new normal, just like the pandemic is allowing the MTA to
stop 24 subway service. MTA has been looking to close subways at night for 40 plus years and they finally have a good reason.
Wonder if it ever comes back

Maybe not a game but I'm looking forward to the Mod mixer pool party at your house this summer.

Nah, even if they do end up playing games with no fans, that'll be a very short-term thing. 

Regarding the MTA, I'm honestly for that longer-term. Trains are often dirty and unclean.

True. We have to pick a date for the pool party soon. That @Thor99 can really hold his breath. He is a good swimmer too.

With all respect, once the health issues are gone there is no way no fans is the new normal.

1 Team:  10 games X $125 x 70,000 people per game X every single team X game day concession costs = Yeah people will be allowed there once they can.

Projections have increased from 60k to 240k in a matter of months. Add to that, states are opening without even meeting the guidelines set forth by the CDC but yea let’s not be scared.

You can be scared, we should all be scared to a point. But we can also wait to see how things play out. Maybe things open up, people wear masks, socially distance (at least while indoors) and we don't really see an uptick. 

The reality is that the only way to completely stop this is for everyone to just lock themselves up for a year or more until there is a vaccine. That is just as crazy as those that suggest we should just open everything up with zero limitations. 

We have to come to grips, as horrible as it sounds, with an "acceptable" amount of deaths. A balance between saving lives from corona and saving  lives from poverty and the other collateral damage of a closed society.

When I was younger, I couldn’t afford to go. Now that I can afford to go, I’m cheap as hell...frugal might be the word. I’ve only been to two games in person. I actually prefer watching the game at home. I like the commentary from the announcers etc and can follow the game better.

This doesn’t seem like the year to break my habits.

Only problem is what if a vaccine never arrives?
