Asses in the seats?

In case you’re wondering what the governor’s latest executive order regarding the pandemic says about playing in front of crowds at Sanford Stadium…

IT IS FURTHER

 ORDERED:

That venues hosting professional, collegiate, or high school sporting events, practices, and games during the effective dates of this Executive Order shall do so solely pursuant to the rules or guidelines that have been or will be promulgated or approved by the applicable professional, collegiate, or high school sports league, conference, or association.

In other words, Kemp is deferring to Greg Sankey or Mark Emmert.  I guess he’s making sure we’ll know whom to blame, one way or the other.

    Who to blame? For what? Last time I checked attending a sporting event was voluntary. I just don’t understand the snark?

    • It wasn’t snark. Some will be unhappy if the SEC/NCAA open the doors and some will be unhappy if they don’t. Either way, Kemp will deflect.

        What are the other states in the SEC doing? It would seem to be damn near impossible to even begin to plan for a season until each state has formally announced how it will handle this very thing. Deflection or no deflection, at least with Georgia, the planners now know what the ground rules are.

    Kemp and Sankey have a lot in common. And I don’t mean that in a good way.

    Let me just say as your Governor, it is my sole responsibility to decide who the deciders are, except for when that decision has already been made by other deciders who decide what I should decide. Then I defer to them.
