Well I do love football, so sue me.

But I do really have to wonder whatís the point of having a 6 game season with no fan attendance? For a handful of Seniors? It comes off as a half hearted attempt to have a season. And as much as I love football, I just donít think itís worth the risk. Iíd scrap the season and resume with the 2021 season.

You have to justify the expense of having a staff and keeping everyone employed.

Reason 1: ESPN money

Reason 2: ESPN money

Reason 3: ESPN money

Reason 4: The MAC didn't want to be the only 1A league not playing this fall

Reason 5: ESPN money (maybe CBSSN money if CBSSN carries any games


We will get by.
We will get by.
We will get by.
We will survive.

Anybody have any sense of how this money's being distributed? I assume it's pro-rated?

If not, that's a nice little perk. Given that sports ratings are way down across the board, and there are fewer games, it would be lucky to get the full payout.

Who is "we"?

And what are you exactly doing besides sitting on your rear?

The great thing about being a part of a team consisting of Iím sure well over 100 FB players, dozens of coaches, athletic trainers, broadcast personnel, and lord knows how many team managers and an ungodly amounts of the athletic department devoting themselves to the cause. The fact that the entire organization is in unity towards one goal should explain why they want to see this thing thru. Itís not about letting seniors play a few more games. Itís about every member of the Bobcat program fulfilling what they do best.

Because we need the Gladiators to distract from the crumbling of the system. Order in the form of a predictable game with rules that don't necessarily reflect the inequality of the overall system is needed to keep the sheep from rising up and murdering their sheepherder. Switch on ESPN, America, and go to sleep.

I know this is a weird thing to say in 2020, because weíre all supposed tp have an unbending take and never give an inch, but I donít know if they should be playing or not. Iím glad for the players. Iíll watch it. But Iíd be okay if they had just not played.

Mostly Iím looking forward to 2021 when hopefully I can watch the games un-conflicted.

Iíd pay for a fast forward button until fall 2021 for many reasons.

I donít know that money has much to do with it because the MAC is screwed going forward either way. The tv money is just cutting massive losses. Weíre at a ďshut down 60 more Sears and KMart storesĒ stage of the conferenceís reckoning.

+1

Call me old skool but I like to believe the above statement means something.

Definitely makes you appreciate the completion of every season, covid or not.
