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.

Made they all wear masks?
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.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

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.

That's called a caddy.

Of course it wouldn't be the same but they don't need fans like baseball, football and hockey.

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.
i totally agree with you-I even forgot about it myself. In general ppl arenít going to be as angry and will try to make peace after beating the virus. Such a chaval.
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

I know what a caddy is, but Iíve heard players already talk about how different it will be without fans in terms of the risks they can take.

I'm kind of enjoying the games of yesteryear that they have been showing.

I don't really get how it would work without fans? What happens when one player gets it? A whole team gets it?
If a player gets it you bench him  like any illness. Keep them basically quarantined and every player and ref gets tested before each game, itís not that many tests and they can certainly afford it.

I think ratings will spike in these times and some of the in-person revenue will be made up by the extra TV revenue. Remember, theyíre losing a fortune of money now that they wonít ever recoup.

I'm sure they can work out additional marketing contracts if they're going to have such a captive audience. Presuming their sponsors haven't gone belly up, yet...
