So Dynamite Monkey is old and busted now?
 
2020-08-12 11:33:19 PM  
Yeah, but that's Texas. Jerruh knows "He needed killin'" is an affirmative defense there, so he's not worried about any legal liability. On the other hand, even Dan Snyder isn't going to allow his remaining fans to watch the game at the stadium, even though socially distancing all ten of them would be easy. Maybe, just maybe, Jerruh will come to his senses.

HAHAHAHA NO JUST KIDDING

Right before the election, too.  I've been skeptic of Texas flipping, but this might push it over the edge.  Do people still watch the Cowboys these days?

This is good news for fans of every other team.

My brain read your handle as Studs Terkel and that was ok, since I'm guessing that's the point.

Home games of the Dallas Cowboys had an average attendance of 90,929.

I was in a bar in Austin many Septembers ago.  There was a Rays-Rangers game that had playoff implications for both teams.

In a bar with 30+ TVs I asked the bartender to put just one on the Rangers game.

"Cowboys are playing"

"But it's an important game."

"But the Cowboys are playing."

/Rays won, sucker.

kroxeldiphibic: The Floyd protests proved you could pack yelling and screaming people together and not spread the virus.  I don't see why filling a stadium @ 50% would pose a greater risk


1) Marches and rallies were held completely outside, not in a partially domed stadium with indoor concourses, turnstiles, and restrooms.

2) You can chant with a mask on, you can't drink beer and eat chicken wings with a mask on. If you "pre-game" with booze, you're less likely to maintain good sanitary practices during the event.

3) Rallying to oppose injustice is arguably a necessity for many disenfranchised groups. Attending a football game is a luxury, and optional.

If political protest is "allowed" on health grounds only to certain pre-defined groups (currently defined as "disenfranchised"), then doesn't that actually disenfranchise any groups not in your pre-defined list? Why not leave the contrast with the football games to the more realistic point that "marches were held outside in open air"?

Austin is Astros country.  Bartender still sounds like a bad bartender though.

Alcohol, that's why.

Oh, and the fact that the protests are fluid and move around.  They're usually not sitting in a seat for 3+ hours which might be a factor.

I think it's important to contrast the purposes of the two different gatherings. One is for entertainment, the other is for the assertion of rights. I'm confident that since you can string together a logical argument against me, you're smart enough to see why that difference is relevant.

Um, You don't have to be a member of a group to protest on behalf of that group.  You're more than welcome to protest with them.

iron_city_ap: 40k people all staying 6 feet apart? Good luck with that.


The spacing is between groups of people. If you have four tickets they all sit next to each other and there are 3 empty seats on each side and an empty row in front and behind.

You can't do 50% capacity, but you can probably do around 20-30%. So Arrowhead stadium could have 20-25k fans present in the stands (and another 30k outside in the parking lot). The biggest risk is the collosal fark-up which is the line for security to enter the stadium. This is a typical view as fans wait in a 30-45 minute long line to get past security. So on all four corners of the stadium there are about five thousand people crammed in shoulder to shoulder. I used to worry about being a 'soft target' for terrorism, but now it would be easy transmission of virii because it is prolonged time of very dense proximity.

This. There is *zero* chance I'd go to Mile High even if fans were allowed. The crowding at the gate would be horrific enough but then there are concessions and restrooms. Plus I'm just going to assume there will be drunk anti-masker d-bags looking to start some shiat.

I'm planning on going, but I may not be a typical fan. I eat in the parking lot and don't usually get drunk. I pretty much stay in my seat the entire game. I probably hit the bathroom 3-4 times in a season. I might buy food/drink 2-3 times in a season as well. I'm just there for the football - oh, and to yell and scream. Might need to explore alternative noisemaking options that don't involve spraying the contents of my lungs all over the seven rows in front of me. I already put in for the Patriots, Raiders, and Broncos games - so see you then.

Can't hurt me if they try it. Could get some scientific data from it at the same time. On top of all that, I don't like the Cowboys, so, go at it, pedal down

Funnier: your response. Your team hasn't won anything in a generation, and you're bringing that noise? You know why Cowboys fans can't count to six? Because they're not Steelers fans.
