Washington Nationals star Max Scherzer wants somebody to explain to him why more fans can’t attend games.

The Nationals allowed only 5,000 fans at the game Tuesday against the Braves, and Scherzer wasn’t impressed. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Scherzer told the media the following after the game, according to WUSA9:

I’m also confused here. I don’t understand why there weren’t fans in the upper deck. I don’t understand why we can’t have more fans here. Somebody got to explain that to me because that doesn’t make sense to me whatsoever. So I understand that we need to be safe. I respect the virus, but we can also have fans in the top part of the deck we can have more fans in here safely. So, I would love an explanation.

Good for Scherzer for speaking up and speaking out about only 5,000 fans being let in during the coronavirus pandemic. That’s ridiculous, especially when you consider the fact the upper deck was apparently empty.

I’m all for safety, but I’m not for being stupid. If it’s safe enough to socially distance enough in the lower bowl, then why can’t there be people drinking a few beers in the upper deck?

I’m sure the people trying to cancel sports won’t love Scherzer’s comments, but who cares. Those people lost the war to ruin sports a long time ago.

Furthermore, nobody is forcing anyone to attend a game. This is America — people have to make risk judgments for themselves.

If somebody wants to stay home, nobody will force them outside. If fans want to attend a game and can do so safely, they should be allowed to.

Let us know in the comments if you agree with Scherzer’s comments.
