All the more reason not to stop drinking Beer


I'd rather wear a mask all game than drink poor beer.

Actually even listerine has apparently been shown to reduce viral loads on saliva.
So when the other half asks about your late night whiskey

Alcohol content needs to be around 60% to be effective. 

I recommend Cut Rum overproof spiced Or Admiral Vernon old J Tiki fire. Both around 75% and quite drinkable neat.

Winning isn't everything, it just makes the beer taste better

All you need to do is give supporters the right to sign an affidavit saying "I agree that I attend at my own risk and I accept the possibility  etc. etc." and let the people decide if they want to go to matches or not.

That's a good idea, but social distancing etc would still need to be in place. It's a question of whether it's financially viable on the amount of people that could attend. At The Pirates the capacity is (I think) around 3,000. Usual crowd is 1200 to 1500. So it should be possible to spread them out. Bars, toilets and food outlets would be a challenge.

So you sign an affidavit or disclaimer and then go and spread it at home or at work? Thats what got us to this situation in the first place.

It appears Premier Football are still aiming to have some crowds back by 1st October. They are expecting the limit to be 30% at that stage. Bearing in mind their stadiums are all-seater it is easier to enforce social distancing.

I suspect all spectators would need to have contactless forehead temperature checks befor entry

I like the idea of signing a waiver before being allowed to enter.

Spot on mate. I want to see rugby as much as anyone but it will be the old and vulnerable who pay the price if they get it wrong. I wonder how many died as a result of events like Cheltenham Races going ahead with crowds back in the spring.
Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Spectating in the open is really not the problem, it is the bars that provide more of a risk.

I am reminded of previous discussions about the facilities needed at Premiership level which included additional width between urinals. Now that seems incredibly perceptive!

An affadavit or waiver isn't worth the paper it's written on, because it's impossible to tell where someone contracted the virus. That's a major reason that it's been so hard to eradicate.

Of course you'd put those T&Cs in the agreement. But for community rugby, it shouldn't be too much of an issue. But it should be a matter of personal responsibility rather than the government just blanket banning everything and potentially destroying a sport in the process. If people want to take the chance, let them. Or if needs be, just say that the day after they must agree to have a test or something.

Don't know if anyone else saw the interview with Harvey Biljon in TRP yesterday, but he stated that the Championship teams have ruled out returning to play until crowds are allowed. Not sure if that had been shared yet. Good interview overall.

Totally understand the reasoning behind that, but, that may mean writing off 20-21 season altogether?

The last thing you would want is to start a season with crowds only for the doors to be shut again by a further restriction later on. As for missing the season completely, things are so fluid at the moment it's possible it could end up that way.

I have an interest in non league football.
The team I ally to have an online document for the Southern League, FA etc of the clubs CoVid plans. Even based on 500 attendance (they are one of the larger clubs in terms of support) which they occasionally get, they are working on stricter capacity. Issues highlighted, queues into ground, toilets, relocation of drinks and food. When supporters are not drinking, eating face coverings will likely be required. 
Wait for the how long a coffee lasts challenge. Similar at rugby, can sense the folks who are anti coverings, drinking pints very slowly.


Old enough to know better...just wish I knew what

When 1 pint is finished you get another - no need to drink them slowly.😷😷
