I think it is incredibly stupid for high schools to be letting sports resume.  So arrogant.  If my kid played and wasn't likely to get a college scholarship, there is no way I would let him play.  

The IHSA and KHSAA have very strict rules

    The TSSAA pushed back the start of the season

They shouldn't be practicing.    The morning news today was showing the area high school practices.  Not many masks worn and not enough social distances.   

What I see is that this spring, everything was cancelled.   Now, even though the spread is worse, they are starting up again.  Besides putting kids in danger.

I agree but the IHSAA and IDOE are keeping school and sport schedules normal

     Football only has 4 weeks to scrimmage and there is even least practice for a few other sports

My kid was in the middle of his first travel baseball season when this all hit.  When they started back up I told his coach that is wasn't worth the risk for so I pulled him out.  I just didn't understand how kid's sports could start back up when professional sports couldn't.

Yeah, I wonder if IHSAA will re-think after the Fishers and Terre Haute incidents, especially for contact sports like football and basketball. It is not like they have the funding and resources like college and professional sports for constant testing and treatment. Tennis, volleyball, baseball, one might get away with less contact if they send kids home and ensuring no locker room congregations.

I can see Tennis.   Volleyball is allot of contact.    I just spoke with a coworker.   She has a nephew playing travel baseball.  They've had games in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Illinois.  That seems crazy in these times.

They would have to limit entry to the original purchaser then and check ID upon entry.  People wouldn't be able to give their tickets away either.  I believe they will be having electronic tickets only anyway.  

 

I will happily opt out of my tickets for a refund so others can go if they wish!

Baseball, they still hang out in the dugout, not sure how they can accommodate social distancing there? I know of some friends whose son still plays baseball and are traveling.

Green Bay Packers will have no fans at their preseason games but I still believe there won’t be any preseason games. 
 

Philadelphia says no large mass gatherings until next year.

For whatever it’s worth...

 

Here on So Cal, the Dodgers are working out at their stadiums playing intersquad games.  And the players are wearing masks most of the times.   Some are not wearing them during at-bats.

 

But in the dugouts, most everyone IS wearing a mask.   Also, the dugout now appears somewhat chopped up with clear plastic dividers to keep too many players from gathering close together.  I suspect other steps are being taken, I’m just sharing what I’ve noticed in the first few games I’ve seen...

Huh?

 

What can’t they do?    What did I list that they can’t do?

 

Even the plastic dividers likely only cost a few bucks.    What issue are we talking about?

I had individual game tickets through Tickemaster and got an email today from Ticketmaster saying my tickets were cancelled and a refund was being processed.


Wow!  That’s good to know.

Players are getting ready to report. They have to report even though they haven’t come to a agreement yet on playing protocols. Seen Eason and Pittman are in their way.

Here’s an email I got today regarding my club seat tickets. A few things stood out to me:
 

-No more than 25% capacity.
-They are deferring 2020 club seat agreements to the 2021 season. I do not like this at all as 2020 was the last year of my agreement for club seats and I was not going to renew. I was going to move outside of the club due to the costs. 
-Looks like club season ticket holders will be given priority. 
 

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we adjust and plan for this unprecedented season.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health emergency, we recently announced that we will have a reduced capacity at Lucas Oil Stadium for the 2020 season. The health and safety of our fans, players and staff is our top priority, so our seating plan will be in compliance with state and local regulations, as well as CDC social distancing guidelines. As a result, we anticipate being able to seat no more than approximately 25 percent of Lucas Oil Stadium's capacity for games in 2020.

Because we can't commit to exact seat locations for all our club season ticket members, we have determined that the most fair approach for our club season ticket members is to defer your 2020 Club Seat Agreements to the 2021 season. That means 2020 will not be considered a term year under the agreements, and we will extend their expiration dates by one year. In addition, we have developed the following options for you for the 2020 season:

Any payments made toward the 2020 season will be automatically rolled over to the 2021 season. No additional action is required;

You will receive priority access based on seniority to secure one of two available half-season plans for 2020. Plan A will include our games against Minnesota, Baltimore, Tennessee and Houston. Plan B will include our games against the New York Jets, Cincinnati, Green Bay and Jacksonville;

You have the ability to either pay separately or use your credit from any payments made for the 2020 season to purchase your half-season plan, if you choose; and

You will be mailed your 2020 Season Ticket Membership box including your exclusive gift and account ID card to show for your pro shop discount.

If you instead wish to receive a full refund for any payments made, please click here to make your request by August 7, 2020. Opting to receive a refund will not affect your ability to participate in our club season ticket member on-sale.

For those accounts that wish to take part in our club season ticket member on-sale - which we anticipate will take place in mid-August - we currently cannot guarantee a particular half-season plan or seat location in 2020. Due to the limited inventory in our club sections, all club season ticket members will have two opportunities to secure a half-season plan.

First, club inventory only will be made available in an exclusive club season ticket member on-sale. Second, all club season ticket members will receive access to a second on-sale with our general admission accounts for inventory available outside of the club sections, based on seniority. All on-sales will take place through Account Manager and we will provide additional instructions via email, including timing and availability, in the near future.

In addition, all season ticket members will receive access to purchase tickets to any home preseason game for the 2020 season. Our on-sale for the preseason will take place in early August and information on how to secure your tickets will be sent via email.

Finally, a number of you have reached out asking about options to purchase suites for individual games that would allow you to entertain guests in a safe and private space. We will have limited suite availability with reduced capacity for all home games. If you are interested in leasing a suite for a game, or multiple games, please click here to access our suite request form and a member of our premium team will contact you.

If you have any questions, please contact your account representative directly or our premium department at premiumservice@colts.nfl.net or 317-808-5384.

We truly appreciate your continued support.

Go Colts!

Just glad there will be fans. No fans would of made it weird. There really is no reason for stadiums to have no fans. 

I watch a Cubs a game the other night and a Lakers pre-season game last night and it seemed normal with no fans there. I would rather have fans but the piped in noise and atmosphere was pretty cool the way those league's have it set up. I couldn't tell much of a difference which shocked me.

I saw part of a broadcast where they digitally had fans in the stands. I thought that was pretty cool.

Yeah when ever someone is at bat, the regular PA announcer announces it and the piped in fans cheer. Basketball was the same when someone scored. They even showed cheerleaders on the jumbo tron.

https://www.colts.com/tickets/premium-seating/club-seats/

 

The seats are in between the 25 yard lines.  You get a comfortable cushioned seat and there's a really nice lounge that only people with club tickets can enter.  You get more food choices, etc.  It's really nice. 

 

I've had these seats in the club area for about 6 years now and they require a 3 or 5 year contact.  My contract would have been up this year and I wasn't going to renew.  I was previous like one section outside of the club area and I always wanted to be in there.  The ticket prices in the club are about double what they were when I was just once section over.  When I renewed my contract 5 years ago, I added a couple of seats because we more children so I've been paying fo 5 seats.  I love sitting in the club section but the price was just getting too high for me.

Ah that makes sense. This is my first year as any season ticket holder so I was curious, I am up in the 400's for games. Maybe in a few year I may try

As far as season ticket holders go, I commend everyone that has been one for years and admire your dedication to be in the stands and spending big money. Having said that, I never wanted to be one. I was one that would go to 2 or 3 games a year and just enjoy those Sundays without spending huge money. I have been to an estimated 50 games or so. Special games I went to was in 1999 vs Dallas - we won (Marv burns Deion), 2009 Patriots Sunday night comeback (Peyton to Reggie for the win after being down 34-14), last game I went to was in 2013 (Luck destroys Houston 25-3). A lot of great of memories but I never once considered season tickets. I do miss my meals at St Elmo and the 3 guys I used to go to games with 2 or 3 times a year, that was a part of those Sundays. We would drink a crap load of beer, meet all kinds of people pre-game, and we never lost at home lmao .

When Peyton was here, season tickets were a very good investment.  I could easily sell tickets for more that face value to games that I wasn't able to attend or games I just didn't want to attend.  For big games against the Patriots, Steelers, or Cowboys I could get nearly double the face value.  I didn't get season tickets to sell them but I could sell a few tickets to help pay for part of the season if I wanted to.  Since Peyton left, tickets have been harder to sell.  Over that last couple of seasons, I've had health issues so I sold more of the tickets.

    • I agree, but unfortunately for Taylor, the majority of carries is usually 12-15 instead of closer to 20.     Interesting question for you.   What is your thoughts on Peterson, I almost considered it a slap in the face to Barry Sanders with the Lions bringing in AP to potentially surpass Barry's rushing yds total, while wearing a Lions uniform.   Hopefully he doesnt, bit I found it weird when he was initially signed. 
    • KG really wasn’t near 100% until the Jax game either. He looks close to 100% now.    Week 1 Vs the Bears the Lions defense lost 3 CB’s. Two of them starters. They were dominating CHI before that and CHI was able to rally back as a result. DET still almost won the game but Swift dropped the game winner in the end zone. The Lions defense was really banged up vs GB, ARZ and NO. They are finally getting healthy. The Lions are still down two CB’s. Trufant and Coleman won’t play this week and haven’t played since week one.    I think the Swift vs Taylor matchup will be a fun one to watch.  I hope they both get the majority of the carries.   
    • I view him as mediocre.  Might not be fair to him but that's my take.  You can win with mediocre if you have a talented roster but there's a cap on your ceiling.   Good chance that Ballard knows this and will make a change if things don't go the way he wants in the playoffs.
    • If you look at how the trend is heading nowadays it seems like GM has become a complementary role to the Head Coach.  Where they basically work hand in hand with the coach or maybe even for them in scouting the class and shaping their board.  But I think the old model, the classic GM at the top ensuring you have that year to year consistency (and maybe even setting the course on what type of team he wants) has its advantages.   Ballard's a good GM.  Having that in place is really important for your long term health of the franchise.  So I think from that perspective the franchise is immediately better off than half to two-thirds of the rest of the league.   I think what he's missing is the right coach.  He needs someone more current, more creative.  Not necessarily the trendy offensive mind but a head coach who is young and gives you a tactical advantage on one side of the ball and has a chance to grow into the total package.  There's some good options out there, lot of young coordinators filtering in to the league now, but Ballard can also look at college.   Bottom line is I think we're in good hands at the top.  The roster is strong.  Lot of positives just find the right guy to tie it all together.
