Tepper speaks, says "some fans" should be at games this year

Recommended Posts

 

Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper told CNBC on Wednesday that he believes the NFL could play games this season with "some fans" in attendance. 

"There should be some amount of fans in the stadiums, depending on what locale and where you are and what the local rules are. There could possibly be," the billionaire hedge fund manager said on "Halftime Report."

"You won't be having full stadiums, but that doesn't mean you can't have some fans in the stadium either," he said. "If you're comfortable being in a closed airplane for a cross-country trip, 18 inches apart, maybe with two seats in between you and being 5 feet away from each other, you might be comfortable in an open-air stadium."

In my personal view this is about as optimistic as anyone can be at this point. Games without any fans is far more likely.

No fans? There goes home field advantage.

There is no difference in having 0 fans or 25% of fans in terms of home field advantage. Won't be loud enough to do anything at all.

Will anyone be able to tell the difference between "some fans" and the usual BoA crowd?

During a rebuild year? Not really

The team of course. I see 2 possibilities.

1. Refund all PSL tickets bought and sell them again with some sort of lottery system. Wouldn't surprise me if they jacked up the prices since it's a more exclusive product.

2. Rotate PSL ticket holders on multi game basis. 3 games. I/3 at each one.

At least it's a rebuilding year. A refund is actually attractive to me this year.

I'm sure the Saints will bring a case to the Supreme Court as to why they should have a full stadium per their typical butthurt logic.

LOL! By week four BOA would be looking like it was a Panthers away game with PSL owners selling in droves to rival fans.

    • But every draft season 90% of this board talks themselves out of spending a first round pick on a OL.  Everyone becomes enamored with "sexy" picks. I blame the system as much as the personnel.  There are reasons that certain teams and QBs tend have good OL.  The Patriots, especially have done a great job of devaluing the OL.  There is a reason they let good O-linemen walk in free agency. I always felt like RR's formula for winning was to play great defense, and then let Cam carry us to 21 points.  Cam's athletic ability was a crutch for this coaching staff and front office.  To get those 21 points he didn't need great personnel around him, or a great offensive system.  Its 3rd and 4 and you call a QB draw, that's pretty simple.  He was probably the best "short yardage" back in the league, when you factor in the favorable blocking numbers of a QB running with the ball.  If anything I always felt like this staff didn't want Cam to reach his potential.  They were more worried about limiting his deficiencies (perceived or real).  Look at the types of passes he use to throw, there were definitely certain routes they felt more comfortable with him throwing. I'm actually happy for him going to the Pats, they have a reputation for getting the most out of their players.  If Cam is healthy it should tell us a lot about RR and his staff and also Cam.  As a player all you can ask for a situation that allows you to be the best you can be, and I'm not convinced Cam has had that in his career, maybe he does now.   based on what exactly?  Would you have extended Cam at market value going into this offseason?  Most people wouldn't, I can't really blame Tepper for that.  What happened next though, I probably would have handled differently. I think everyone (you, me, front office, Cam) assumed that Cam would have had a trade market, which he didn't not.  Looking back we could have slow played the situation and Cam probably would have played out the deal on his last year of his contract. Tepper probably had final say on whether or not to extend Cam, but what follows next I put more on the GM and the coaches.  Its the GMs job to know the market, and then I think the coaches fell in love with Teddy. Here is how it should have gone: Cam wants an extension.  Very understandable Team doesn't want to give him an extension.  Very understandable Cam isn't happy.  Very understandable Cam and/or team looks for trade.  Very understandable Team decides to roll with Grier and look to draft a top 3 QB next year.  Very understandable No trade market for Cam materializes.  Surprising to everyone.  Cam decides to play on the last year of his deal. Cost the team roughly $20m to see if a former league MVP can return to form, instead of spending $60m and a two draft picks (comp you lost this year for singing TB, and the comp you would have got for letting Cam leave a year later) to see if a player could become a better player than he ever has been?

    • this is good but it should be pointed out that the 'outside accommodators' theory came true and moderate liberals converted the movement from one about systemic change to one about statues and football names
