Sean Payton Doesn’t Expect Fans at the Saints Season Opener
New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton made it known during an interview with CBS Sports that he believes the NFL will start on time but without fans in the stands.
The Saints' season opener might be four months away, but the first game of the season is already circled on all Saints fans calendars. The sports world is buzzing as we're going to get a battle of the G.O.A.T.s at the quarterback position to kick off the season.
Tom Brady recently signed with division rival, Tampa Bay, and got his favorite target, Rob Gronkowski, to come out of retirement to join him on an already potent offense down in Florida. All three players are first ballot Hall of Famers for sure, which adds to the intrigue of this game.
Sean recently sat down with CBS Sports to talk about some of the hurdles the NFL has to overcome leading up to and playing the 2020 season. It's going to be strange looking at an empty Superdome during the game to say the least, but I will be glad to have football back in my life.
Look, I'll be honest. The lack of fans will have no effect on my viewing experience. They can pump in fake crowd sounds if they want but it doesn't matter to me. I'm just going to be giddy getting to watch my favorite sport again.
I have a feeling sports is going to play a huge part in getting our country back to normal in the coming months. NASCAR is starting up later this month, baseball is coming back next month, and the NFL has the luxury of sitting back and learning from their successes and failures for the next four months.
