I have read that the NHL would be willing to play games without fans to finish the season. It's something that's been"considered and discussed." Playing games with no Fans? Really? Fans are what makeup every aspect of sports, and, entertainment. Without us you do not exist. You have no venues, theaters, stadiums, race tracks. Fans are the people that keep you in business, pay your salaries, buy your merchandise, build your stadiums, watch movies, and, attend all manner of events.
Imagine playing games with social distancing. Players six feet away from each other. No contact, no checking, no scrums, no face wash with a smelly glove, no batting down the puck just in case it becomes contaminated. How about no spitting on the benches or ice? Yeah, that will work. Then, there is the PPE for players, right? I’m wondering about the new hazmat uniforms, because players would have to be protected. Right? Never mind that many, too many, Doctors and Nurses and all manner of health care workers, do not have what they need to protect themselves from this deadly virus. Now is the time people world wide have to alter the behaviors they have lived their entire lives. There is no timetable with this pandemic. No end date.
This would be laughable if it wasn’t so deadly wrong. This unbridled greed is unimaginable to me in these seriously dangerous times. Anything to make a buck. Eh? No thank you, NHL. No thank you, indeed.
