will anybody really be into it if there aren’t fans there and they try to manage a season with just players. It really saps the life out of sport when NO ONE is in the stands. Hard to not just see it as a practice.

We talkin bout practice? Not a game. Not a game. PRACTICE.

I tune in to the European Soccer league and yikes - that is exactly what it feels like - a Sunday morning scrimmage.

Same. I didn’t honestly expect it to have such an impact. I’ve tried with fake crowd noise and without.

AM I NOT ENTERTAINED!?

well. No.

Get the Falcons PA guy on call and we’ll pump some crowd noise into the stadium. TV watchers will never know the difference.

And blast lots of Jock Jams.

Yeah, I would be very into it
Same. I've watched way more Premier League soccer than I ever have before, and it's not that bad. The lack of crowd is definitely weird, but it's 1000x better than no game at all. The fake crowd noise is strange, too, but it's at least real enough that I can forget about it when I'm really into the game.

UFC has no fans and it’s great.

I've been watching way less sports. I don't really miss it. If we don't have football this fall, that's fine by me. I have other things to take up my time and, ultimately, it's just a game. Not worth the risk and hassle to our students' achieving their academic goals.

It's good for me. I'd prefer if they defaulted to no fake crowd noise. That makes it almost like a new experience being able to hear everything. Leicester needs to get their f***ing heads right though, Schmeichel singlehandedly botched that Bournemouth game.

I would not bet on seeing CFB this year. It could result in several programs cutting the sport completely.
