    He’s not wrong though. I don’t take offense to someone pointing out what most of us already know about ourselves.

    I don't blame players opting out for the reasons they've stated. Protecting family is a good thing, IMO.
    If any human being has and truly loves close members of their family, those loved ones should always be priority #1. Period!

    Sports should never, ever be considered more important than a loved one. Never!

    Unless a player has a known underlying condition that puts him at higher risk, he should not get paid for opting out.

    Some players will take advantage of the situation and that’s not right.

    I would LOVE to visit arrowhead, it looks amazing. We are in NO as part of a 4 week honeymoon but its a shame that its during the off-season.

    I've been to Denver 3 times but not for awhile. One was our regular season win against NE in 2005 I think (the year we beat them in the playoffs then lost to Pittsburgh), then against PM and the Colts where he drove them down for a last secong FG win, then a fairly poor game with Cutler against the Dolphins that we lost.

    I love Denver, it would be amazing to do a Sunday or Monday night game if possible.
    KC is actually really interesting. The fans were so much nicer than I expected. I had so many people wanting to get pictures with me and complimenting my attire, granted, it's probably because we got our butts handed to use thanks to Trevor Simien, but...that's neither here or there.

    It's always special getting to watch the Broncos plan in person, I wish I had more chances to do it, but even living as close as I do compared to you, the cost of travelling is often to much to make it possible with a family of 5.

It's such a beautiful city, the mountains around you, the altitude, the fans. It's a very unique experience (as is New Orleans)

    To DB and Frey -

    I also want to express that you live in a fantastic country, one of my favorite countries in the world and you guys are lucky to be there. I'm going to be in New Orleans next June and am hoping to convince my partner to visit Denver next October to catch a game.

    This is possibly the first thing we've agreed on all week. Sensationalism rules king in the USA. Thanks largely in part to 24/7 news media that's always trying to keep their ratings high by finding controversy in everything to drive up their viewership.

    I actually agree with you on this one. I don’t take offense to it because it is mostly true. I mean after all we do have an entire large state that brags about going the biggest on every aspect of life.

The less possible contact they can bring in, the more likely we are to play an entire season. Minimize everything, no fans, no tailgaiting, no nothing just the players and the minimal number of staff they can get away with on the field. Do as much officiating and coaching as possible from the booth and adjust as much as you can for this season.
    Oh I agree I’m just going off of the two teams that have reported so far this week that they are putting up plans to accommodate 20-25% capacity.

    I’m pretty sure unless numbers drop in the next two months fans will not be attending.

    The arguments become different with an actual bubble league at one site versus what the plans are right now.

    I agree to a point with bronx's post. If playing in a bubble with limited and restricted interaction is too risky then do should going to restaurants, bars, friends houses, etc. Etc. I am not even saying I disagree with that overly cautious approach. What I am saying is that not returning to work in a highly vigilant workplace should then not equate to that same athlete taking greater risks while "staying at home". Now if they do keep contact limited etc. Then great. I respect that decision.

    Agreed. Our soccer league (MLS) had 2 teams withdraw from the tournament right before it began, not because they didn't want to play, but because the majority of their team contracted Covid. Players may want to play, but it gets difficult when you might lose players throughout the season. And again, just saying replace them is only a half measure. When you start to water down the product, it gets less entertaining. At least for me.
