Finally, some states and arenas are letting fans back in the stands, but there is one positive with no fans. We can hear so much more from the players. Every league has some mic’d up for the players, but the players don’t let it fly like they normally do. Players warn their teammates as they’re walking by and not to say anything.
Some players are naturally funny, like Chris Long, who thrive while their mic’d up. At the same time, other players are about as vanilla as the quiet girl you go on a date with. You know what they say though the lady in the streets, a freak in the sheets.
From the bubble to this season the NBA has been quick with the beeping noises, as players talking has been picked up with no fans to drown out the noise. I would love for the NBA, NHL, and NFL to have a HBO special of games where every player is mic’d up, and they can just let it fly. Even though that would make great money I doubt the players would agree to it since they wouldn’t want their images and brands to be hurt.
Would you pay extra money to get unfiltered players?
