With Major League Baseball exploring various restrictions believed to be needed to get back into action, Rodgers was asked what it was like to play in an empty stadium.
“I haven’t let my mind go there at the time,” Rodgers answered. “I know there are lots of conversations about that. It must be a strange situation to not have fans in the stands. And I hope it’s not reality. “
Picking up the second year coach Matt LaFleur’s package is similar.
“I haven’t really put a lot of thought into it, to be honest with you,” LaFleur said during a conference call, who came to join Rodgers and was only the second question and answer session with reporters since the NFL scouting was merged in February. “Do I think it would be strange without fans? Yes, but that might be the situation we face (with). Whatever it is, we will accept it. I wish they were there, but if not, we will accept it. “
Meanwhile, Rodgers, who has been at his home in southern California since returning from a trip to Peru before travel restrictions were imposed around the world because of a pandemic, bemoaned some of the house stay conditions he compared to “house arrest.” He also wondered aloud about “the future of the country and the freedom we may have at this time.”
