RE: Football attendance plan
Saw a breakdown on projected deaths of COVID using current distributions by age. This is based upon 150k deaths - which seems high to me, but we'll go with it.

Total number of deaths in the age group of 15-24 which would cover our student-athlete population = 161 total deaths. That is way down the list of death causes for this age group. Behind Flu/Pneumonia deaths which average 189 per year.

Most people on this board don't know what the consequences were of the Atalanta-Valencia Champions League soccer game back in February, but the major sports leagues do. And they don't want that to happen again.

‘More than a month later, experts are pointing to a Champions League game between Atalanta and Valencia as one of the biggest reasons why Bergamo, Italy, has become one of the epicenters of the coronavirus pandemic — a “biological bomb” was the way one respiratory specialist put it.‘

Yeah, I saw that episode too. But it's a theory and was absent quite a bit of data to back it up. Some scientists are now saying that we had the virus on the West coast in December. If so, we certainly had it at the Super Bowl. But I've seen no traceable data to support anything like what Real Sports said about the soccer match.

Yeah ... Same with Mardi Gras. Common sense says that was probably a big reason for the high Cv19 rate early in N.O. ... But traceable data ??? 07-coffee3

Same here ... Only mine's a 55 ... So I got to sit closer.

If there gonna have fans ... Redo ticket sales where all seats are 6 ft apart. Sell beverages in bottles only, food in sealed bags. Tiger lane won't work ... Require masks when not seated ... Encourage early arrival ...

Games will be played.
Schedule will be modified to limit travel and get done more quickly. Not sure how this happens with tv contracts and all, but they can figure it out. Maybe as simple as conference games only, no open weeks, with championships and a limited post-season. Try to get finished before a second wave possibly hits in winter.
Testing of entire teams every week. Positive test leads to a 2-week quarantine for the player only. (English Premier League has just announced a 1-week player quarantine which could become the model for pro sports.)
No band. Limited students. Cheerleaders are fine.
Attendance is tough to predict. Right now, I guess 1/3 capacity. Seat costs will be a premium, and availability based upon priority points.
Gates will open much earlier to allow fans to avoid the rush. Masks are mandatory. Bathrooms are fine, due to limited capacity and increased availability of sanitizer.
If restaurants reopen safely over coming months, concessions will have momentum for business as usual.
Tiger Lane will remain open, but limited capacity. Screens will be setup outside the stadium for fans to distantly attend.

Good luck with that. Many schools are cancelling fall break and wrapping up in person classes before Thanksgiving so students don’t travel all over the country and potentially bring COVID-19 back to campus during those two breaks. Or worse yet so that asymptotic students don’t take the disease all over the place and seed new outbreaks.

So sending 150+ staff and students all across the country 6 weeks in the fall likely isn’t happening. That’s what 60ish teams on the road each week? At a time when most universities have banned all sponsored travel. The season looks less and less likely with each passing day.

Things change daily ... Seems we are all ready for reopening the country.
Just gotta use patience and common sense. Really gotta ask the " is it worth it" question ... And be opened minded about the seating restrictions we're going to have to deal with. And ask yourself ... Do you want football back or don't you. And Jesus ... Drop the politics.

What a laugh! If I remember correctly, someone said that the virus would not be a problem in the US, then that the 15 US cases would quickly go down to 0, then that the virus was a political hoax, then that he knew it was going to be a massive pandemic all along. The latest word from him is that it is simply going to disappear soon. Who is it that changes their minds almost hourly/daily as you say? Come on now - answer truthfully. I don’t think you can bring yourself to admit the truth even when you hear and see said person make these statements on multiple news broadcasts including Fox News. Some things just can’t be denied.

The copy and paste that has ended so many debates in the last month. I will be able to use this until the end of time.

NYC GOVERNOR CUOMO
March 1st

"Cuomo announced New York's first confirmed coronavirus patient: a woman in her late 30s believed to have contracted the virus in Iran. "There is no cause for surprise -- this was expected. As I said from the beginning, it was a matter of when, not if there would be a positive case of novel coronavirus in New York," Cuomo said. He assured New Yorkers that the general risk in the state "remains low."

NYC MAYOR DE BLASIO PART I
February 13

"There are ZERO confirmed cases of coronavirus in New York City, and hundreds of Chinese restaurants that need your business!" Also, words of encouragement at the end of February because Chinatown restaurant business was almost back up to normal.
https://twitter.com/NYCMayorsO.../status...6368344066

NYC MAYOR DI BLASIO PART II
March 2

"On March 1, the first case of the coronavirus was announced in New York City. At the time, more than 80,000 people worldwide had confirmed cases of the virus, and President Trump had issued travel warnings against South Korea and Italy. However, de Blasio wasn't as concerned. "Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus, I thought I would offer some suggestions," de Blasio tweeted on March 2."
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/.../d...haunted...

NYC MAYOR DI BLASIO PART III
March 10th
"On March 10, the mayor insisted on MSNBC that "If you're under 50 and you're healthy, which is most New Yorkers, there's very little threat here. This disease, even if you were to get it, basically acts like a common cold or flu. And transmission is not that easy."

March 15th
"On March 15, to the irritation of his own health department, the mayor claimed that "public health folks say it appears that transmission is when people are symptomatic."

ALEXANDRIA OCRAZIO CORTEZ

JOE BIDEN

Said Trump's travel ban was hysterical xenophobia. First mention of supporting it was April 3rd.

https://thepostmillennial.com/watch-nanc...i-urged...

Literally every single high profile NYC politician, every single high profile Democrat were all saying it wasn't a problem as late as up to the end of March.

Yet the HATE towards one man remains at unparalleled levels.

Why should we worry about his hate level, or anyone's hate level, especially when we are engaged in living through the social, economic and physical losses of a pandemic...?

Those quotes prove some people learn the hard way, i.e. they don't change their tunes until it hits them square in the face.

There are others who never change their tunes-- for those types, there is no learning curve.

And there is a small group of folks who get it right from the beginning. meh...that percentage is irrelevant to the outcome, also.

This whole mess, especially the reaction to it, is directly the result of psychotic hatred directed at one person.

Those quotes prove some people learn the hard way, i.e. they don't change their tunes until it hits them square in the face.

There are others who never change their tunes-- for those types, there is no learning curve.

And there is a small group of folks who get it right from the beginning. meh...that percentage is irrelevant to the outcome, also.

This whole mess, especially the reaction to it, is directly the result of psychotic hatred directed at one person.

Justin Trudeau ??? 07-coffee3

WHO?

The guy that FLotUS is so turned on by.

She is always looking so disinterested and annoyed but she is positively beaming to see Trudeau.

Games will be played.
Schedule will be modified to limit travel and get done more quickly. Not sure how this happens with tv contracts and all, but they can figure it out. Maybe as simple as conference games only, no open weeks, with championships and a limited post-season. Try to get finished before a second wave possibly hits in winter.
Testing of entire teams every week. Positive test leads to a 2-week quarantine for the player only. (English Premier League has just announced a 1-week player quarantine which could become the model for pro sports.)
No band. Limited students. Cheerleaders are fine.
Attendance is tough to predict. Right now, I guess 1/3 capacity. Seat costs will be a premium, and availability based upon priority points.
Gates will open much earlier to allow fans to avoid the rush. Masks are mandatory. Bathrooms are fine, due to limited capacity and increased availability of sanitizer.
If restaurants reopen safely over coming months, concessions will have momentum for business as usual.
Tiger Lane will remain open, but limited capacity. Screens will be setup outside the stadium for fans to distantly attend.

Good luck with that. Many schools are cancelling fall break and wrapping up in person classes before Thanksgiving so students don’t travel all over the country and potentially bring COVID-19 back to campus during those two breaks. Or worse yet so that asymptotic students don’t take the disease all over the place and seed new outbreaks.

So sending 150+ staff and students all across the country 6 weeks in the fall likely isn’t happening. That’s what 60ish teams on the road each week? At a time when most universities have banned all sponsored travel. The season looks less and less likely with each passing day.

Things change daily ... Seems we are all ready for reopening the country.
Just gotta use patience and common sense. Really gotta ask the " is it worth it" question ... And be opened minded about the seating restrictions we're going to have to deal with. And ask yourself ... Do you want football back or don't you. And Jesus ... Drop the politics.

I’m not playing politics at all. I want football and life back to normal as much as anyone else.

I’m just pointing out that higher ed in general is being very cautious towards reopening. If they are adjusting term schedules to avoid students traveling home for fall break and Thanksgiving and then back to campus, do you really think they are going to be eager to travel across country several times across the fall? My guess is no.

I also think we are seeing to wife a variety of university plans to accommodate a standardized football season. NCAA has lots of rules about what you can do as far as practice goes based on whether or not classes are in session. With many schools starting classes early, some starting classes late, etc. the variability in fall camps and practice time will be immense. The NCAA tries to standardize things to fit their idea of fairness. These things are most definitely at conflict with each other.

What a laugh! If I remember correctly, someone said that the virus would not be a problem in the US, then that the 15 US cases would quickly go down to 0, then that the virus was a political hoax, then that he knew it was going to be a massive pandemic all along. The latest word from him is that it is simply going to disappear soon. Who is it that changes their minds almost hourly/daily as you say? Come on now - answer truthfully. I don’t think you can bring yourself to admit the truth even when you hear and see said person make these statements on multiple news broadcasts including Fox News. Some things just can’t be denied.

And what did Democrats call him when he correctly shut down travel from China into the US?

I'll wait

The copy and paste that has ended so many debates in the last month. I will be able to use this until the end of time.

NYC GOVERNOR CUOMO
March 1st

"Cuomo announced New York's first confirmed coronavirus patient: a woman in her late 30s believed to have contracted the virus in Iran. "There is no cause for surprise -- this was expected. As I said from the beginning, it was a matter of when, not if there would be a positive case of novel coronavirus in New York," Cuomo said. He assured New Yorkers that the general risk in the state "remains low."
https://abcnews.go.com/.../timeline-cuomos.../story...

NYC MAYOR DE BLASIO PART I
February 13

"There are ZERO confirmed cases of coronavirus in New York City, and hundreds of Chinese restaurants that need your business!" Also, words of encouragement at the end of February because Chinatown restaurant business was almost back up to normal.
https://twitter.com/NYCMayorsO.../status...6368344066

NYC MAYOR DI BLASIO PART II
March 2

"On March 1, the first case of the coronavirus was announced in New York City. At the time, more than 80,000 people worldwide had confirmed cases of the virus, and President Trump had issued travel warnings against South Korea and Italy. However, de Blasio wasn't as concerned. "Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus, I thought I would offer some suggestions," de Blasio tweeted on March 2."
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/.../d...haunted...

NYC MAYOR DI BLASIO PART III
March 10th
"On March 10, the mayor insisted on MSNBC that "If you're under 50 and you're healthy, which is most New Yorkers, there's very little threat here. This disease, even if you were to get it, basically acts like a common cold or flu. And transmission is not that easy."

March 15th
"On March 15, to the irritation of his own health department, the mayor claimed that "public health folks say it appears that transmission is when people are symptomatic."
https://reason.com/2020/04/09/3-ways-new...-in-march/

JERRY NADLER
March 31st
"I believe that Trump's travel ban is irrational and doesn't help the public."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KjhxVOBBWQ

ALEXANDRIA OCRAZIO CORTEZ
March 11th
"People are avoiding Chinese restaurants due to 'straight-up racism' " By default, she is saying that crowding restaurants and public places anywhere in NYC is ok.
https://www.foxnews.com/.../aoc-chinese-restaurants...

JOE BIDEN
January 27th
Said Trump's travel ban was hysterical xenophobia. First mention of supporting it was April 3rd.
https://grabien.com/file.php?id=857655

BERNIE SANDERS
March 9th
During Town Hall on Fox News says he wouldn't have closed the borders.
https://www.foxnews.com/.../bernie-sande...t-close...

NANCY PELOSI
February 24h
Walked through Chinatown in San Francisco with large group, crowded closely together, saying no problem.
https://thepostmillennial.com/watch-nanc...i-urged...

Literally every single high profile NYC politician, every single high profile Democrat were all saying it wasn't a problem as late as up to the end of March.

And yet the entire thing was 100% Trump's fault. Imagine being that stupid.. but.. as far as I can tell, about 47% of American's are that stupid. Sad

And the theory of no sports in 2020 continues to crumble...

RE: Football attendance plan
Just have it where only season ticket holders can go.

3 or 4 seats between each person.

That puts you around 20,000 people, and the stadium looks slam packed to the rim on TV.
