New England Patriots Fans, What Do We Do If There's a Lockout?
What will a fall be like if there are no muskets being fired off into the air?
It'd be pretty awful for New England fans.
Just imagine an empty Gillette Stadium—not only for away games and bye weeks, but all year long.
There wouldn't be any magnificent passes being thrown from the arm of Tom Brady.
None of those things will happen. None of them—if there's an NFL lockout.
If you're a diehard Boston sports fan, what is there to do if there's no football? Once the Boston Red Sox season concludes in either September or October, then it's all eyes on the beloved Patriots.
Face it fans: There's a great chance that there won't be football next season.
What will fans do all next fall and winter? Well, there are the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins.
But seriously, how exciting can regular season basketball and hockey be compared to Pats games every Sunday? You can't compare the two.
You can't forget Boston College football—the only relevant school in the Boston area. But how relevant are they?
I know for a fact I can't name more than five players on their roster ever since quarterback Matt Ryan was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons.
How can anyone even watch the Eagles right now? The past couple of seasons, they've had a 26-year-old quarterback, Dave Shinskie, leading the team.
I'm sorry, no offense to Shinskie, but that doesn't attract any fans.
I realize that Shinskie was a former baseball prospect and it's a great story that he's made it to BC to play some football, but the Eagles haven't been good since "Matty Ice" left for the NFL.
So, cross off regular season basketball and hockey along with BC football. Now what?
There's nothing else.
Actually, there is the Major League Baseball offseason and the Boston Red Sox "Hot Stove." Fans will now have the chance to follow the Sox offseason like they never had before.
But it just isn't the same as football.
So, once the Sox finish their season in the fall, what can fans do?
They can casually watch the Celtics and Bruins, possibly turn on a BC football game on a Saturday or follow along, a little bit more closely, with the Red Sox offseason.
But, in reality, Patriots fans will just mope around and wake up every single Sunday hoping that there will be a game—even though there won't be.
If there's no NFL season, New England fans are in for some big trouble.
