Georgia Responds To The Criticism Of Last Weekend's Stadium Crowd
© Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports
Georgia received some criticism about the size of their home crowd against Auburn last weekend. The university allowed over 20,000 fans to attend the game. After the game, Georgia announced a home attendance of 20,524. (It looked like there were more fans in the stands at times.) Here's what senior deputy athletic director Josh Brooks had to say about it...
quote:

“The biggest takeaway from me is we had 99% compliance from all of our fans. It’s just refining that 1%,” Brooks said. “The majority of our students were great. They had great attitudes, they were respectful, they were compliant, but it just takes a few who without having malicious intent just filtered down or get into areas where they’re not supposed to sit, especially when the cameras are down there and they’re trying to get a great camera crowd shot.”

Good for the fans! Glad they showed "the man" that all this isolation is crap! We do not agree with it!

What I wouldn't give for a school issuing an official response of: "To all those harping on our students and fans obeying all the guidelines and enjoying football in the fall, Go frick Yourselves."

This is why we haven’t been able to move forward. Glad the kids can have their football parties disregarding orders while people are unemployed and losing their businesses.

People are unemployed and losing their businesses because idiotic politicians went from “flattening the curve” to “we will open when there is a cure”. Ignoring all statistics even after the cdc changed the actual death to much lower for that of purely Covid deaths. You want to move on, don’t blame college age kids that are at an almost 0% chance of dying from this, and blame weak political leadership at the state level for refusing to let Americans go back to work. Covid is the biggest gift to the media to feed the sheep and good god if the dumb arses don’t keep believing everything their told.

"Go_Dawgs You want to move on, don’t blame college age kids that are at an almost 0% chance of dying from this, and blame weak political leadership at the state level for refusing to let Americans go back to work." BTW, how many children have died from this when tRUMP said their age wouldn't be impacted by it?

No one cares about the China virus.

I believe 216,000+ in the US alone would say otherwise. BTW, if "nobody cares", then why did tRUMP go to the hospital the other week?
