13K Miami Dolphins Fans to Attend 1st Game of the Season

STL Audio Post

Say what? While 31 other teams in the NFL are having their opening games in empty stadiums due to the lack of rapid testing and inability to handle common areas (restrooms, vendors) with strict social distancing the Miami Dolphins have announced via their official Twitter account that things are different in the Sunshine State.

There are definitely changes made to the stadium and the way the team will operate it. Regardless, the event is considered a high-risk scenario by pandemic scientists. This point of view does not seem to hold much water for the governor of Florida nor (it seems) for the Miami Dolphins.

On the field, this gives the Dolphins an actual home field advantage having the only stadium in the league that is allowing fans. This seems to fly in the face of the “parity” directive which is what has helped drive the league’s popularity. For one week it seems the NFL is ok with one team having an advantage over every other one.

Will other venues/teams follow suit? The league has stated all along they wanted to get the kinks worked out and indeed, have fans. It looks like Miami will be their litmus test.

No word (yet) on what the Buffalo Bills team and/or players think about the increased risk factor.

Stay tuned.
