NFL advertising earnings going down the shitter.


Quote:
Declining NFL television ratings will lower CBS earnings, according to Credit Suisse.

The firm cut its third-quarter EPS estimates by 5 percent, citing CBS' softer Sunday NFL ratings. The media company reports on Nov. 2.

"We expect third-quarter network advertising to decline 3 percent (previously +1 percent), driven by soft ratings for both the summer schedule and for the start of the NFL season," wrote Credit Suisse analyst Omar Sheikh. "With only one of the three content licensing deals we expected for the second half announced in third quarter, we also expect content licensing revenue growth to be skewed to the fourth quarter."

Check and mate.
Dream on. Someone else's flaws don't erase yours. Moreover, you bait and switch with regularity.

Kaepernick is filling a law suit against the NFL for collusion. Seems no one wants to hire a trouble maker.

Very telling. Why would they apologize if they did nothing bad? Its obvious, the fans are pissed off about it and the owners are hearing it loud and clear.

NFL fans bitching about this anthem thing are as big of assholes as the NFL owners, now that we have learned about the CTE brain damage crisis that the League has been covering up for years. You could complain that pro-footballers are earning enough to have to fake patriotism et al, but when you're telling a group of men that they have to suffer brain damage, ill health and early death to please you - FUCK YOU!

He is protesting his cause in a harmless manner designed for maximum attention. He has succeeded. He has broken no laws, harmed nobody.
And, he has done this at great financial risk to himself.
Whether we agree or not with Kaepernick's protest,- I do, by the way-he is making his point!
Want to kick all those players off the teams? What are you and the owners afraid of? Do it!
Might be a little easier and less costly from a legal standpoint if you just engage in an honest conversation and try to address concerns !
Thanks from tristanrobin and Clara007

Who said kick them off the team? What you do is bench them if they make a problem for the team.

Nobody is afraid of anything. What we are is upset about it and offended and feel that the football teams can play without us watching it. That's all.
