    The second is people are going to be PISSED if they get turned away at the gate after paying for tickets and driving from there. You're gonna need an army of security to pacify angry drunks who can't get in.
    Yeah, those are good points. But they sure as hell aren't go to stick a swab up everybody's nose and ship it off to a lab for testing.

    I'll see if I can find the info I alluded to earlier.

    Ford employees are required to stand in front of an infrared scanner on a tripod as they make their way into the workplace. They have to remove glasses and hats and must pull down face masks in order to get an accurate reading, all while following markers on the floor and looking directly into the scanner. If an employee shows a temperature above the threshold Ford has set (which is not disclosed), they have to do one of three things before they can return to work.

    That's not exactly what I was thinking of, I know I've seen a set-up that looks like a walk-through metal detector. Same premise, though.

    Who in the world wouldn't trust the opinions of armchair pandemic experts, people that don't even play a doctor on TV?

    Well, I certainly trust those opinions explicitly. How can you not?

    I think games will be played without fans in the stands if we're lucky.

    I can't see them playing without fans. It would be a huge revenue loss for the league. I think they are hellbent on having full stadiums, regardless of the dangers that may be posed to everyone involved.

    That's not what at your own risk means. There is a massive amount of liability by you being allowed to attend a sporting event and getting sick at it. It's a multi-million dollar lawsuit waiting to happen given the current pandemic. There is no way any team is going to be foolish enough to just risk that. They may do very small seating areas (like less than 20,000), mandate social distancing, mandate mask wearing, but as soon as somebody gets sick from attendance that will end the practice.

    They've already said that if necessary they will play without fans. The gate receipts mean nothing compared to the TV revenues and the TV ratings would be record highs across the board, which means more money.

    Please read something other than WaPo, NYT, and TBN, and stop watching CNN and MSNBC. And when someone has a point of view different from yours, stop the insults. This political pandemic is the most overblown event in US history, and the concomitant lockdown is having -- and will continue to have -- long term consequences far worse than a virus that is a danger only to a small segment of America's citizens. Your unfounded and wildly inaccurate blaming of Trump, with no condemnation of China, Cuomo and many others, is totally indicative of your blind allegiance to your narrow political point of view.

    I'll believe it when I see it. Don't get me wrong, I hope there's football, and if it has to be without crowds, then it does, but I'm skeptical. They can say they will all they want, but come September, the tune may change.

    What are you going to do if the offensive tackle is COVID (-), the guard is (+) and the center is also (-)? They cannot line up next to each other.

    Well you are confused and ignorant to the facts. Carry on.

    Try to deal with facts before you post so you don't embarrass yourself anymore.

    As of now, in NY State, there have been 2,167,831 tests. Of those tested 373,040 have turned out positive. You can do the math, or do you need help with that too? In any case contracting the virus is anything but "extremely low." And as far as your notion about your hygiene - that, too, is a laughable joke. I'll tell you about the 41 year old healthy EMS worker that could do loops around your hygiene that died in a local hospital bed. Under-estimating the novel coronavirus is fool's folly. You're on the bandwagon.

    I bet those 20k fans will see signs that read “at your own risk” or some version of the club not taking responsibility.
