MizzouGuy: 7k of those fans are vaccinated health care workers from across the US.

The Chiefs have had up to 16k fans at each home game this year, and several other teams did as well. No outbreaks reported ever.

The season was completed (save 3 games, but they will be) with a few hiccups, but limited outbreaks considering the number of people.

It's like people are rooting for COVID when it comes to football.


Oh at one point we had an entire Hyperbole Brigade in every football related thread predicting how many deaths would result from the NFL's "brazen cash grab". Turns out, team medical staffers with needles put more players in the hospital than covid this season at 2/1. And that was AFTER the MLB, NBA, NHL and even MLS were able to resume play after the initial lockdowns.

A lot of people made covid a deep part of their political and personal identities and almost seem disappointed now that their worst disaster porn scenarios didn't come to pass.

I mean look at this garbage...

No plan, huh? So zero/limited attendance, covid protocols, massive testing regimens, contact tracing, expanded practice squads, virtual meetings, game rescheduling, opt outs, and more constitutes no plan? Odd then that it led to a fully completed schedule across the entire country that resulted in ZERO player hospitalization/death. Just admit the only plan you would have accepted was total cancellation and then realize how unnecessary that was in reality. Because those tweets didn't age for shiat.

Which is it Fark? You can be outside with a mask or you can't be. Make up your minds.

100,000 people on the streets for hours nightly for weeks protesting, many with masks and many without....not a super spreader event according to Fark and no surge in cases as a result.

20,000 people in an open air stadium for four hours all wearing masks and spaced apart by party as much as possible....OMG, literal epicenter of death for millions according to Fark.

You don't get to have it both ways.

And we've never known the NFL to lie about its players for image's sake; isn't that right, soldier who was killed by turr'ists Pat Tillman?

On the other hand, there absolutely should have been an extra week or two for more BYEs.  It was ridiculous that Denver had to take the field with a practice squad WR at QB for the first time since he was a junior at Wake Forest.

Just because the NFL had a combo of planning and luck, doesn't mean their plan couldn't have been significantly better.


Their planning could certainly have been better.

I feel nothing for the Broncos and their QB situation. The QBs were willingly violating the protocols and the got punished for it. The Broncos deserved it.

They are. The goalposts shift depending on whatever the conversation is. It's Fark, what do you expect.

eagles95: Gubbo: If the Packers make this.... I don't want to sound like a dick, but I promised myself that I would spend up to $15k to see the Packers in a Superbowl.

Just my luck it would be the covid year that I can't travel.

/ok it would be lucky because there are far better uses for that money
//But still...might be a once in a lifetime thing

I love the Packers (despite s/n) and no way in hell I would travel into Florida Guy territory in a pandemic to watch A. A. Ron try to win a 2nd Superb Owl.

/Gotta beat the evil Brady empire first
//Jesus i'm going to be nervous Sunday
///GO PACK GO


I'm not going during covid. That's just not happening. Of course I had this all planned out last year as well.

Last year when we played a team that humiliated us in the regular season and..... Ah crap.
