In a state that has had horrid Covid deaths and sickness. Whatever. Let all those idiots spread it and die. I no longer have compassion for people who willingly stare a deadly disease in the face. It WILL kill you. I know.

so many people buy us out of TP, paper towels, isopropyl alcohol, peroxide, gloves, bleach, Zinc, Vit C, Vit D, etc every day there's nothing left to put on the shelves.

we absolutely killed our Q2 numbers.

$9/hr

starting pay at Walmart/Sam's is like 11.50 now...what I make per hour was a VERY good year for America. Even you should be able to figure that out.

congrats on improving your status

keep moving forward


Yes, onward and upward!!!

I understand the need for the current safety protocols, but can someone donate the UM & if necessary whatever government agency involved a tape measure. The 12ft rule I thought was based on being between account holders (Groups of people) not every person entering facility. The current 4,500 capacity to me appears to be more like a capacity aligned to spreading every person 12ft. On tv you could clearly see groups of 2-6 people together & then no one within 30-40 ft of them & that was throughout the stadium not just random sections. It also appeared the corners of the stadium was empty.

I feel like someone dropped the ball here maximizing capacity with a 12ft rule.....not sure if that is university or county.

Did the health dept say 12ft between accounts/groups or set 4,500 as max capacity for venue?

There is a big difference in my humble opinion.

This is an open question for anyone in the know......thanks

It is my understanding, after asking many times, that the 12 foot rules is between the groups of people who have the one season ticket account "cluster". My family of four, can all sit right next to each other but have to be 12' away from all of the surrounding "clusters" of one-account ticket holders.

Between that fact and the visual on TV, it seems overly excessive. There were humongous swaths of sections that didn't have anyone in them. There could be other limiting factors we don't know about. Is there enough monitoring of staff to accommodate a whole lot more sections to have some people in them? I don't know.

What’s the likelihood that that everyone who got a ticket showed up on a holiday weekend with less than a weeks notice that they actually have tickets?

A couple of groups don’t show up and an entire section looks empty.

The health department gave the 12 foot rule, the university came up with a seating plan to support it which set the capacity.

Uncharted territory, you base decisions on common sense. So assume against all odds that the attendance restriction for game 1 was based on common sense (which we know it wasn't). It turned out to be stupid and completely lacking in common sense, so obviously you make changes for game 2.

Nope, don't make any changes. Prove beyond a doubt that you are morons and the entire process is a combination of politics and idiots thrilled to have power.

Trial run. I’m sure they saw what everyone else saw and some adjustments can be made. Or maybe not and it is what it is.
