College Football Playoff Committee Called Out For ‘Outright Fabrication’ On Moving Rose Bowl
The Rose Bowl won’t be played in Pasadena in 2021.
The Tournament of Roses informed the sporting world that the game would be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Jan. 1 due to COVID-19 restrictions in the state of California.
“We know that the decision was not an easy one to make,” Tournament of Roses director David Eads said in a statement. “While we remain confident that a game could have been played at the Rose Bowl Stadium, as evident in the other collegiate and professional games taking place in the region, the projection of COVID-19 cases in the region has continued on an upward trend.”
However, the committee is being called out for the reason they want to move the game as Pat Forde took to Twitter and pointed out usinf COVID as the reason doesnt make sense because the game is moving to an area with a higher rate of positive tests.
It’s pretty obvious that the committee wans some fans in the stands as well as making money, but they can’t come out and just state that.
The actual reason is obvious, and their reseasoning is clearly flawed.
