As a Yankees fan saddest thing would be to watch Astros not get what they deserve from fans around the country. Theyíll be getting away scott-free.
They'll still get it.

How? Even after fans ARE allowed back, it wonít be with the same anger due to the delay, and with so much else happening in that time. Itís been almost forgotten by now.

How will the teams make money? They need ticket sales to pay the players, no?

Merchandise, affiliations, streaming content, endorsements, etc. etc. They probably make $$ 100 different ways besides for seat sales in the stadiums/arenas.

Made they all wear masks?

Without affecting their vision/performance?

False hope can be very dangerous.

It wonít be the same without fans. The masters and Ryder cup are the two golf tournaments which simply canít be held without fans.

That's not going to happen.

I was lucky enough to attend several NBA Finals and WS games in 2016. Man would those be sad to see without fans.
I want to watch sports, but I think my vote is no, unless they're exhibition games or tournament format outside of the regular statistics and playoff formats.

If any sport doesn't need fans it would be golf.
First of all, the players rely on the galleries and grandstands for sight lines and finding errant tee shots. Second of all, the tournaments wouldnít be the same without the fans. Watch tiger going down the 18th fairway at the tour championship in 2018, wouldnít be the same without fans.
