PGA announced their schedule with no fans. I didn't know there was fans.  :)

Why not?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

I wonder if players would have the same energy and play at their best without any crowds present.

Home-court/field advantage wouldn’t exist obviously. Would be weird

It would be great for gamblers. We can see if there really is an advantage with home fans.

I didn't either until I sent a client to one.

How sad would it be to watch a World Series game without the fans cheering...

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?

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

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

They might be looking at not losing as much.

Baseball can probably be done with almost no contact (besides getting onto base and tagging people out). Football and basketball will be much harder.
I'm not who you think I am.

How? Even after fans ARE allowed back, it won’t be with the same anger due to the delay, and with so much else happening in that time. It’s been almost forgotten by now.

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?
