I am ready to go to Raleigh about outdoor venues like football games. All the schools in the state need to rally fans . Ok in other states why not here? Getting REAL obvious!

roach gone, many states and entire conferences still are extremely limiting outdoor gatherings as well as cancelling altogether or delaying until February..

Had McRary not helped create a furor over the bathroom bill, he MIGHT have been gov now...whether he was right or wrong.

Can we just go to the game, you know, to protest it and stuff and totally not to watch the game?

Governor Cooper is on the wrong side of this one. Call your governor (919) 814-2000

EVERYONE should be able to agree that there can be a reasonable risk achieved at some number greater than 0 and less than max capacity, in a 30k capacity outdoor venue. There is no data available that would support zero as the only answer.

It makes zero sense to have the number at zero. At the very least let the families of players come watch. What are talking 500 at the most?

You could do both. Call him and encourage him to let fans in and still vote for him. Just saying....

I'll say it again. 20K+ in Bristol Motor Speedway in May with zero outbreaks or clusters (and fans were not wearing masks in the Seating Bowl. Yet, we can't have 5K to 7500 in attendance. This makes zero sense and is purely a politics and over-reaction.

It could easily be done

But...

I say just open the gates and if people wander in then oops! The governor is an idiot. I hope people wake up and get rid of him. I want to know what big bowler paid him to open bowling alleys. (LOL)

The players families and App students should be allowed to attend with precautions in place. That’s a quarter to a third of the stadium.Cooper is appeasing those who would just as soon see college athletics die.

I think parents and/or some students and fans should be able to attend. I know the governor's order prevents but could it not also be that App also doesn't want the liability and/logistic issues and associated cost versus benefit questions?

This is on Governor Cooper. No one else. Call your Governor 919-814-2000.
