POLL: With 3 months til kickoff, will Covid keep you from going to Gator games this year?

Discussion in 'Main Sports Forum' started by G. Gordon Gator, Jun 1, 2020.

?

Will the Chinese Bat Stew Flu Virus affect your willingness to go to Gator football games this year?

  1. I am a season ticket holder but am not going to any games this year due to the virus.

  2. I usually get single game tix for one or more games a year, but not this year, due to the virus.

  3. I rarely or never go to games anyway, but if I did, I wouldn't go this year due to the virus.

  4. I have season tix and may skip the first few games due to the virus, but will go to later games.

  5. I have season tix and do not plan to miss any games due to the virus.

  6. I usually get single game tix for one or more games a year, and this year will be no different.

  7. I rarely or never go to games anyway, but if I did, I would not let the virus stop me.

    Ox says I have to post 10X this month. So, here is number 5. Being that I am moving out of FL, no I will not be going to any games unless they end up in AZ for the Natl Title Game....(if played there)....what Virus?

      Doubled the amount of participation since you moved it some 6 hours ago.

        It’s at 47 votes and you’re hanging your hat that it will be less than a total of 50? Not a good gamble, my friend.

          You forget that I have the ability to ensure it’s less than 50...or change my prediction to 60.

              Ole Miss and/or LSU wouldn't be a bad trip at all.

                The virus won’t have any impact on my willingness to attend games.
                However, I don’t believe it’ll be business as usual. I think seating will be limited and spread thinly. I can respect those that still want to attend, but I’ll pass.
                And in light of everything that’s going on now, it seems highly unlikely that “normal” is returning anytime soon. Environment is everything in college football. And half filled stadiums seem pretty dull.

                I don’t know about that. FSU and Miami have already shown that you don’t have to have anybody in the stands to play a game.

                  I guess I would change my opinion on going if they aren’t going to at least try to fill up 75% of the stadium. I’m not flying down for limited tailgating and a empty crowd. I’d walk into a packed stadium right now if I could.

                  I was originally planning on attending either the Ole Miss or Vandy game with my family, but I don't want to take my then 3 year old (with a heart condition) and 7-8ish month old with all the uncertainty. Will we have to wear masks? Will there be less available seats, thus more expensive tickets? Will my youngest son stop screaming every time he rides in his car seat by then? Will my wife be ok with me going without them? All of these questions will weigh heavily in my decision.

                          I'm going to Nashville in November. Maybe I'll see one of you clowns there!

                            That’s definitely on my maybe list. Have been there before for the game in 08...game atmosphere sucks but there’s not a better city than Nashville for a weekend

                              Not worried about the virus. Being deployed we've dealt enough with this shyt. I will at the LSU, USCe, definitely Nashville. Maybe more. Depends on deployment.

                                So, you are protesting against empty seats in the stadium by not occupying yours? lol that's almost sort of the inverse of one of my favorite Yogi Berrisms. When asked if a certain restaurant in NYC was still popular, Yogi said, "Nah, nobody goes there anymore -- it's too crowded."

                                  FYI there is a poll thread on that inferior Gator site asking a similar question -- "Would you go to a Gator football game vs. LSU if it was tomorrow?"

                                  There are three answer choices -- yes, yes but only if seating capacity reduced to keep 6 ft apart, and no. These are the current results:

                                  Yes: 85 votes.
                                  Yes, but only if 6 ft. apart: 15 votes.
                                  No: 115 votes.

                                  Granted, there's a difference between being willing to attend a game tomorrow vs. in three months when the season starts. Still, I think a conclusion can be drawn about the comparative levels of testicular fortitude between users of the two sites.
