The New South Wales Government released a reversal of some Covid-19 restrictions today for businesses and the hospitality industry, but the most exciting news is that sporting venues will be allowing crowds back at full capacity. NRL, AFL, Basketball, and Soccer fans everywhere are pumped to return to live games, none more so than the few remaining fans the Doggies have left.
“It’ll be great to see them lose in person again,” said longtime Bulldog fan, Hazra Bottomofladderer (29). “Watching them perform poorly on the tele just isn’t the same. It’s way better to swear at them in person.”
“I can’t wait to be out in the wide-open spaces of those empty seats where our fans once were and cheer on the boys again,” said fellow long-time fan, Ahmed Mateamsnotdoinsowell (38). “The empty stadiums are great for getting an echo going.”
Given that the Bulldogs are playing the Broncos at SunCorp this week, watching the Blue and White low scoring machine in person will have to wait. Until then, if people are still worried about Covid, there’s no safer place than a Bulldogs stand for social distancing – ground staff won’t even have to enforce it.
