Roger Goodell stated yesterday that he believes fans will be allowed in stadiums during the 2020 NFL season, although he's not sure when. New York Giants co-owner John Mara doesn't echo that sentiment, saying he's "not all that optimistic" about fans being allowed in the stands at all this season, at least not at MetLife Stadium.
As of now, most teams are not allowing fans through the first few weeks, at least. Others are allowing only a small number. The Giants and the New York Jets, with whom they share a stadium, are in the group of those who will not have fans in attendance.
Goodell can say what he wants, and it's his job to remain optimistic about appealing to the various fan bases; I get all that. But the truth is, we don't know what's going to happen with the NFL or the virus in general. It's challenging to make a decision, let alone have a vision about what the season will look like when it hasn't even begun.
