    The no fan thing doesn't bother me at all. This isn't football.

    Most watch on TV where fan noise is pretty muted, so unless you're one of the 15k fans there it doesn't matter. It might matter to a bunch of the players, but does it matter more than making money and trying to live out their childhood dreams of winning a Cup?

    I think the playoffs is a bit difference in that aspect. The crowds can be absolutely electric, obviously in big moments, and that absolutely comes across on TV. Imagine there being no pop in an overtime game 7 goal or something... Kinda sucks.

    Watching Bundesliga soccer right now and yes, at first not hearing fans is weird but eventually got used to it and wasn’t even paying attention.

    Yeah...fair. This whole thing would just be weird for too many reasons.

    Totally. And I'm not hating. They had to somehow salvage this season, and I'm glad they're trying to do so.

    It's just going to be so weird to see big moments without a crowd.

    The weirdest part was the sound of the player's voices echoing around an empty area. I can't imagine what that's going to be like with a hockey broadcast. We're going to hear all the obscenities being yelled by the players and coaches hah!

    Honestly, they should have an unrated broadcast through Showtime or something.

    Right? If they want to generate some revenue, I would pay for that even if I think this whole thing is weird.

    Carolina should be dismantled. So is Tampa once they start to suck in a few years

    Thanks, Pete. Some understandable concerns though.

    Although they were the best team in the league last year and then choked against the Jackets. That takes a little shine off the valid point.

    As he said, there isn’t a way to satisfy everyone.
