On Friday night President Trump lashed out at NFL players protesting the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).

On Sunday over two hundred NFL players and staff knelt down in protest during the national anthem.

Americans reacted to the controversy by boycotting the league.

Early numbers show weekly NFL ratings may be down by 10% due to the stunt.

I didn’t watch, despite having grown up a Redskins fan.

Wow -- I didn't know we had a presidential election this year, and a massive hurricane making landfall in the U.S. over the weekend.

/sarcasm off/

I’m surprised they were not lower than that.

The NFL should realize the ‘football’ is not a necessary thing. It’s entertainment, and as such can be left alone...................

I’ve gone from wanting to see the scores to wanting to see the ratings. We need a “Fantasy Ratings League”. Which team’s ratings drops the most next Sunday?

Looks like the We Hate America theme the NFL adopted is working as expected.

NFL should have protected the game from falling for the agenda of a racist terrorist group! Black Lives Matter is a racist terrorist group that promotes the killing of INNOCENT police offers!

I don’t see how the NFL gets the genie back in the bottle. Before they hit bottom, I bet they see 60 if not 70% decrease in revenue.

And let’s not forget how they responded when 4 police officers were killed in Dallas..

My gf is a Redskin’s fan. They played last night at 7:30.

But making dinner, as we watched the coverage of the protests, she said “I’m done.”

She went upstairs and changed out of her Redskins jersey. We found something better to do.

I have been a lifelong Steelers fan, but am now done with them. College ball only for us for the rest of the season. We each have a kid at PSU, so it should be a good one.

What a win Saturday night, BTW. TD pass for the walk-off victory over Iowa.

BOYCOTT!

And stop the public funding for NFL teams. Corporate welfare *7 BILLION DOLLARS WORTH* is what keeps the league in business.
