Protest of football

There are two types of protests going on right now with regards to Pro Football. One it is protests by mostly black players taking a knee to protest America basically and mostly I understand the police.

The other protest going on is the protest of attending and or viewing pro football games by those that are offended and insulted by the knee takers protest of the flag.

I myself used to love pro football but I have not seen a game for a year now and don't plan on anytime soon. Clearly by looking at half empty stadiums I am not the only one. I am sure viewership will be up this week because people will want to see what is going on with the protests. People have seen it and now they will ramp up their protests of the game.

so far the owners are in denial about the cause of reductions of viewership. It will be interesting to see if their delusion about the cause will continue or if they will wake up to reality.
Thanks from sumara

Leftists ruin everything. Now we can't talk about weather or sports without them bringing politics into it.

The NFL is golden. Their television contracts will continue to serve them just fine. The third protest is the one against the unfit dotard in the White House.

Really so that is why the Views are down, which will cause a loss of revenue next contract cycle.

NFL ratings are down again this season. Is it time to panic yet? - Sep. 20, 2017


The players should not cut the throat of the Goose that laid the Golden eggs..

You see their contracts are tied to advertisement revenues

Silly Liberals went to college and cannot read their contracts.

If losing millions of dollars is golden then yes its golden.

The NFL Is Seriously Concerned With Empty Stadiums Week 1 of the NFL season had plenty of important stories worth following, but maybe the most entertaining was the mostly empty stadiums in Los Angeles and Santa Clara. Both the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers had sparse crowds for their home openers, and that has not gone unnoticed by the NFL.

The NFL is far from being "golden". It have become more like crap.

The NFL has the strongest ratings of any sport.
NASCAR is in the hopper, Baseball is down big, NBA viewership is way off.
All sports viewership is down, NFL the least.
Is Kaepernick killing NASCAR ratings?

You are taking a factoid and pretending it means something you want it to mean.
Because Trump told you that was what was happening.
The truth is simpler, Trump lied again.

The NFL's television contracts are huge. Doing better than MAGA hat sales.
