Unless Maryland has ordered capacity limits on FedEx, it's not COVID keeping fans away in Washington , it's just general suckiness.Other than Washington, COVID not driving down attendance much.
no way were that many folks in the stands, check highlightsDamn a lot of people in Atlanta went to witness that trainwreck
Even the cheeseheads barely showed up. Pretty disappointing but the locals don't go to Jacksonville games either. Not sure how long that franchise will be there.

And here's a good number of snow birds among the wealthy in Wisconsin who live their summers in Wisconsin and their winters in Florida, just like all the snow birds from New York, New Jersey, Michigan, etc.I was at game, and hung out with a bunch of Packers fans at hotel, boat ride to stadium and at stadium.
First, the majority of the Pack fans I spoke with LIVE in Florida now. Apparently, 1/3 of Wisconsin has retired to Florida. ( Many Saints fans in the stands were not even NOLA natives, they are part of the growing National fan base, developed from being a top-notch, interesting franchise. You can tell who these fans were when the speakers start blaring The Hot Boys, and Master P songs. It is ok, we coached them up and by end of the game they were dancing well)
Second, the breakdown at the game was easily 70% Packer fans. Thank goodness the Saints slapped them in the face early and kept them very quiet. There were a few times the crowd tried to rally the Pack defense, but it did not work.
Finally, most Packer fans stayed deep into the 4th quarter before they started to leave in mass. Probably when Rogers was taken out. Of course the Saints fans did do a version of " Hey Hey, Good Bye....."
Packer fans are good people, fun to hang out with. They are the opposite of Philly fans, and other punk fans around the league.
