on lower rows of seats. I hate this as a viewer but I get it from a revenue standpoint

Is the NFL the only sport that doesn't currently do this?

doing it. Now I do not even notice it. Hope the players get 50% .
The only thing that bothers me is the hypocracy...

teams that do this 'sell' it to the fans as a way to reduce costs for fans. Yet, ticket prices, parking, food never seem to be reduced...
I think this has more to do with how many fans

Will actually be attending games. The networks DO NOT want there to be shots of the stands with no fans. I'm sure they'll be social distancing rules in effect when/if the stadiums are open to the public.

At least in NY/NJ, I'd be stunned if there are fans in attendance for 2020.
This seems to be a direct response to COVID for this year, but likely

something that will stick beyond this year. As BamaBkue points out, it stinks of hypocrisy. They will claim this is to reduce costs to provide a better product to fans, but will never result in reducing any costs to fans.
