Current Broncos and former Chargers running back Melvin Gordon pulled no punches when he joined former NFL pro Marcus Cromartie on Instagram. Cromartie asked Gordon how he felt about the idea of playing without fans in the stadium since, as that is a distinct probability due to concerns over the coronavirus. Gordon didn't hold back at all, saying the Chargers "didn't have fans" in the stands anyway, so this wouldn't be anything new for him.

Marcus Cromartie: Oh, man Charger fans, they're not going to like that!

Robin Lundberg: Well, there you have it. For many, the idea of playing in front of no fans feels empty, literally and figuratively.
