almost all sports leagues are either having empty stadium events or are going to have them. of course that does include wrestling.

I watched two this weekend for a short time. The NASCAR race and a horse race.

I found them both pretty boring. I didn't feel like I was there at all. It might have well have been a 10 year old race for all I cared.

have you had that reaction to empty stands sports?

The Atlanta race is ALWAYS boring. I have noticed zero difference between empty stands and full stands as far as NASCAR is concerned. I don't miss Michael Waltrip amongst the people and I DEFINITELY won't miss Rutledge Wood amongst the people.

The only empty-arena sports I've seen are wrestling and NASCAR. I'm totally content watching NASCAR with no fans; a live audience isn't as integral to the product as it is to wrestling. I barely notice the lack of fans while watching the races.

NRL (Rugby League) started up down here two weekends ago. Empty Stadiums. Given it's about the only sport going down here so far, I've given it a watch whereas normally I wouldn't.

They've gone in the "low canned crowd noise" direction, and also in the "pay to have your face on a cutout" direction - which has had a few humourous misses.

Australian Football (AFL) starts up on Thursday night in an empty 100,000 seat stadium. I'm sure they'll go with entertainment over product as well and overlay a heap of fan engagement initiatives over the telecast.

We'll see how it goes.

One thing is you can really hear through the effects mics how big some of the hits are.

for several european soccer/football leagues the broadcast pipes in crowd noise.

Spanish LaLiga is going to take it a step further.
They are digitally going to fill the stands with people.

I would be in favor of that!

AFL is on FS2 and I THINK FS1 does at least one game a week. I no longer get Fox Soccer since switching back to Xfinity but they also had a lot of AFL.

EDIT: My guide says Power vs. Crows live on FS1 Saturday at 04:30 CDT

It sounds like CRZ has got your answer below (above), but FWIW the AFL also has an "International" streaming service. It's not cheap though.

Confirming that this weekend, yes the Crows are playing the Power on Saturday night Adelaide time.

I'll have to look into your choices or do something. I cut the cable cord a bit back. I really got into both AFL and NRL when I spent most of the spring there last year. But it's been mostly old games since then

I have Sling, happened to be cruising channels last night, & fell right into the AFL Adelaide vs Port Adelaide game on FS1. (Go figure.) Enjoyed watching it. No spoilers, just in case you haven't seen it. :-) Nice to be able to watch sports, even when I'm not totally sure exactlwhat game they're playing! :-)

(I've been pretty happy with Sling for the last couple of years that I've been free of Cox cable. And $5/month for their cloud DVR service works for me.)

Hey congrats on the new exercise habits. I'm somewhat of a health and fitness nut and I like seeing people getting in shape, and most importantly, doing it the right way. Those are some insane gains in 8 weeks. Keep it up!
