With fans in a limited capacity, these are the top three cardboard cutouts the New Orleans Saints should want at every home game this season.
As the New Orleans Saints gear up for this season, the preparation process for everyone from staff to players looks a little bit different. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, home games this season are going to look a lot different than they did in the past.
The NFL has already announced that the first eight rows of any home stadium are going to have to be blocked off to fans. In order to recuperate money, the stadiums are most likely going to do advertisements in those rows.
The NFL then said that all fans had to wear masks to games and that they had to sit six feet apart. Because of this, stadiums are going to be rather bare this season from people not wanting to wear masks to people sitting so far apart. Players could also opt-out which hurt a few teams.
In order to not look like every NFL game is an empty stadium, the NFL should adopt what other sports teams have been doing like soccer, the NBA, and the MLB and add cardboard cutouts to empty seats to make it seem more lively.
If the New Orleans Saints were to do this very thing, it would be awesome, but there are certain people or groups of people that all Saints players and fans should want to see as cutouts in the seats. These are the top three.
