Fans at Fed Ex

Hopefully, city officials have a change of heart and allow 20-25K at the games. Particularly if the team starts to excel or simply play above its expected level.

I believe only two teams--us and the Raiders--decided to prematurely not allow fans at games for the entire season. It was odd, not only watching our game but also other games without any fans in attendance.

I'm hoping things change for us in regards to fans in the stands in the next few weeks.

Re: Fans at Fed Ex

Ramping up fans in the stands when the virus is expected to start picking up again seems like a really bad idea. A fan that was at the Chiefs game has tested positive.

Zero proof that that person got the virus at Arrowhead. That article should not have even been written because it has no foundation.

Doesnít matter where he got it, problem is he could have spread it while at the game.

That is the risk you take if you decide to go to a game. If you want or need to stay home then do so.

The piece was written to spread more fear, which is what the media has been doing for 6 months straight.

If you get on an airplane there's a risk that it can crash. When you get in your car you know there's a risk that someone is texting while driving and can rear end you.

Come on man. Nobody is trying to scare anyone. 200,000 deaths should be scary regardless of who writes what about it. Our impatience and paranoia about this being some sort of fear tactic is why the virus is running rampant in this country unlike any other. Sometimes there is just a shitty situation. This is a terribly shitty situation. The longer we fight the protocol the longer it will go on. That is the ironic thing. It isnít the person going to the game that I fear for, because like you said it is their choice. But after said event those 25,000 people go back into their communities. The rest of those people who chose not to go are now at risk that it could have been a super spreader event. It isnít conspiracy or fear tactic it is just science. We keep fighting what the doctors and scientists tell us and we will keep dying at a higher rate than the rest of the world. If we all Follow their advice we will be done with this shit sooner, but instead we are fighting it.
Also when was the last time 200,000 people died in plane crashes in 7 months? Or car crashes? To your point though if that did occur you can bet your ass i wouldnít be flying or fucking driving until they figured out wtf was going on.

We've been saying that for 8 months and yet the numbers haven't exactly gone down to manageable levels. If only there was some sort of trusted expert we could all turn to for advice on how to stop the spread.

FYI, driving a car is more risky than flying in an airplane. Anyways, I really wouldn't have a problem with limited capacity at sporting events if we could all just agree the bare fucking minimum you can do is wear a mask in public places. But this country is so goddamn lazy and literally everything has to be politicized so goddamn much we can't even agree on that.

Fed Ex isn't in DC so city officials have no say in what goes on. WFT decided this in conjunction with the State of MD and Prince Georges County.

Re: Fans at Fed Ex

There is plenty of room at Fed Ex to let 25,000 people in and have them spread out. Just a bunch of nonsense not letting anyone in. Have to learn how to live with this virus, and not hide and run from it.
