There will be problems because the crowds will be smaller and football pays they way for just about all sports except basketball at most schools. Transport will be a big problem for more reasons than one.

I don't think people realize how expensive football is. At the end of a season football isn't making as much money as people think. After officials, ticket sellers, and ticket takers are paid (I know some schools have more people who get paid than other schools) it adds up. Football has the biggest uniform and equipment cost as well. That money comes out of the athletic budget. At the end of the day, football makes far far less than people think.

Most high schools in southern Ohio don't make money in football. Basketball is a lot less expensive and more home games.

I’m guessing he means Ohsaa. Ticket sales don’t pay the bills. Property tax does that :lol:

I go to youth baseball tournaments every weekend. People sitting beside each other and enjoying life. There is no reason not to have crowds in the fall. PERIOD

We lose money on football. And we’re a program that’s made playoffs the past two seasons. No football season has a negligible effect on us, at least. It’s the possibility of basketball being affected, regarding gym capacities, that would really screw us.

True, almost all schools lose money on football. A lot of expense.
Basketball is really the only money maker. More home games and less expense.

I can see this both ways. I know at Gallia academy football is a huge money maker. Not saying that it would be without all the fundraising that they do but with the fund raising it makes it there cash cow.

A lot of schools do it. First of all, it's almost impossible to find volunteers for anything we need. You are more than welcome to volunteer just get ahold of me because we have a lot of opportunities to do so. Secondly it is harder to hold someone accountable for missing money if you aren't paying them. Actually it's darn near impossible. We have had significant sums of money come up missing from the til before when someone was volunteering to sell tickets to events.
The chain gang gets an all sports pass for the school year.

Each participant on any team would pay a flat fee to play sport say 100.00 a player this would be forPPE, extra costs of anything pertaining to stop the spreadof this killer. Funds will have to be made up and the school districts that follow sound financial rules will make sure there district doesn’t go into the red and be put on state alerts because of no funds and spending with what is not available in the coffers. This should be spread out over every sport and every individual that plays.

We have a pretty poor district. We wouldn't have very many kids playing sports if we did that.

I can tell you without a doubt that won't happen at NY.

Brother, you can’t even get people to vote “yes” on the tax levies for the districts their kids attend school at & play sports for.

Face it, football pays the bills. All the other sports growing in popularity can not touch football. It rules supreme
