If the Saints and NFL allowed it to be regular attendance as long as you sign a waiver that the league and team is not responsible for Covid 19, would you go or wait for things to improve or sit out all season? Poll included, please elaborate if your exact answer isn't there since I'm trying to keep the poll concise. Multiple choices are allowed.

Yea but the stores have had thousands of people in it and touching things. Do you really think they disinfect the stores every night or through out the day? No they do not. People touch things that thousands of other people have touched. Can also be in a store with hundreds or people in it at the same time.
i have not been to anything but a grocery store in 4 months
i disinfect the cart before using
always have a mask on and don't go to crowded stores

I'm not going to any, buuuut what if the playoffs start and our 1st game is in the dome vs the bucs. Winston's taken over the starting job as Drew's arm just isn't getting it done. As we go to half down 3 touchdowns, they ask Payton what it will take to get back into the game. Payton responds, "Heart, miles and miles of heart". Are you at the dome for the 2nd half?
The last two playoff games we've had at home, I witnessed in person. They have proven to me the crowd means nothing. So no, I'm not.

I was making an joke using the movie The Replacements as a template. I'll freely admit, not a very good joke,

My wife is an OT and just found out a patient she treated Friday tested positive for COVID on Monday. I planned on visiting my parents in their backyard, wearing a mask, and maintaining social distance this weekend, but that's scratched until my wife's test comes back clear and we're symptom free the next couple of weeks. Now I feel bad that I visited them this past Sunday, but I think it'll be fine because I/we took precautions during the visit.

You're not just signing a waiver for yourself so you can go to games, you're signing a waiver for everyone you come into contact with after. Except they didn't get to sign it - you did. The selfishness of some people in this country is disappointing.

No sir, stating a fact. You can get it from one person.
You're still not getting it. It's degree of risk, which is gauged by probability. Sure, you can get it from one person under the right circumstances. When you're in a crowded environment with lots of people yelling and screaming (i.e., ejecting droplets that may or may not contain coronavirus), the risk is significantly increased for any one individual, and exponentially increased for general spread within the event.

I don't trust society as a whole to attend.
Those who feel under the weather will still go not caring for the common good. It's why it keeps spreading.
There is such a thing as asymptomatic spread. Everyone in the Dome could have no symptoms, but some of them will have COVID and spread it to others. Which is why everyone should act as if they do have it.

I'll watch on TV, if there is a season. I believe we go until next year without football. Too much risk. I hope I'm horribly wrong!!!!! Please let me be wrong!!!!!

Are you talking about the protests?

I didn't attend any crowded protests either, but I get you're trying to make a political point.

The protests weren't good for preventing spread, and they probably DID contribute to spread, but they were at least outdoors with a lot of them wearing masks. The Dome is indoors. Bars are (for the most part) indoors. It's pretty clear that being indoors is a risk factor compared to being outdoors, all other things being equal. The outbreaks in Florida, Texas, Arizona, and other states have much less to to with protests than they do with a reckless "re-opening."

It's moving from me to we.
This sentiment perfectly describes what needs to happen in many areas of life.....can't say more on this forum.

Even if I had the opportunity and free tickets I would not go to any games.

An enclosed area with 10's of thousands of people screaming(i.e. spreading their germs far and wide) is a very very bad idea. If the NFL allows this it will probably be the end of my fandom as well. It's time to put other people before ourselves and sacrifice what WE want for what EVERYONE needs. I mean all concert tours are cancelled and this is no different. The reasons to cancel concerts also apply to NFL games. Enclosed area, lots of screaming people in very close proximity. It's a recipe for disaster.

Enough with the whataboutism. It is not a good debate tactic. What you actually prove is that you have nothing of substance to add to the conversation.
