If you go every week, Iíd suggest it matters less because you can just treat it as a week off.
I go to work every week - doesnít mean I donít mind missing a week!
But I donít want a day off, I want to go to football !.

Because a pub/cinema/theatre doesn't need the same level of infrastructure and control as a gathering of 10k/20k/50k people all meeting in one place.

It's really not difficult to understand, people comparing cinemas to a live professional sporting event really have not thought things through..

Like it or not, the emergency services will be more under pressure at the moment due to the unplanned events and people gathering that is bound to take place for an unpresidented event like this, so to ask them to be available for let's say 80 sporting events over the weekend to add to that pressure on top of those unplanned events that will be taking place, it's hardly surprising that they took the simple decision of just cancelling those sporting events for one weekend.  Not taking into account everyone saying that those that want to mourn just stay at home with the curtains drawn, if you work for the emergency services you won't have that choice.

People just need to chill..  It's one game.  The outrage on Twitter would be ammusing if it wasn't so pathetic.

Spot on.

RFU have confirmed that their fixtures go ahead this weekend.
Aah,rugby. The game from which football can apparently learn so much about "respect"

Perhaps ask yourself who you think needs to chill?  Mildly questioning the widespread cancellation of sport on a football forum doesn't really need to be so shot down.

I'm all for respect, it was just the uneven application of it that I was questioning.  No outrage there.

So I was interested to learn, calmly, from Venks, that some comedy gigs were being cancelled.

And then to learn, less calmly tbf, about the valid angle from our already beleaguered emergency services' point of view.

Hopefully Premiership Rugby and the O2 hosting the  Shields:Marshall fight will also come on board.
