Posted on 10/06/2017 12:41:13 PM PDT by EliRoom8
The NFL is not just losing white viewers. The NFL isnt just losing black viewers. No, the NFL is hemorrhaging viewers of all races and ages, and theyre doing so at a frightening pace. With the NFLs Week 4 in the rear-view mirror, a review of TV ratings through the leagues first month show that the NFL has lost millions of viewers year-over-year, a decline that has picked up speed so far this year. As Awful Announcing recently put it, It seems everyone is mad at the NFL.
Overall, viewership is down seven percent over 2016, which is bad enough for the league. However, this years slippage is not the first. Indeed, 2016 the year of the first national anthem protests saw a nine percent decline over 2015.

The nfl is f-d.
So f-k the nfl.
Dead to me.
[ Man, you must really want the crime rate to soar. Imagine all those thugs being released into society with no jobs. ]
Actually, that’s quite correct. You nailed it. I DID think about that. It’s a thug magnet. Both of them.
I find it very sad that viewership and attendance is not down at least 50%.
Most people in this country are weak, self interested, ignorant, idiots that will follow whatever political wind blows the strongest.
But that is pretty much the world in general.
Football is not life or death, but the Dallas Cowboys are.
Like Tony, you mean.
I don’t know how attendance is doing, but three teams have had attendance problems that I know of.
The SF 49ers have had lots of empty seats at some games.
Ditto the LA Rams in the LA Coliseum.
The LA Chargers can’t even sell out their temporary home in a 27,000 seat soccer stadium. Clearly there wasn’t much enthusiasm for the Chargers to move to LA.
This year’s season tickets are all bought and paid for. It will be a key indicator, if season ticket renewals in the off season are down.
And Bennett with the Seattle KneeHawks.
Disrespect our flag and national anthem and this is the result.
Bazeball has been belly, belly good to me...
Love the sign the guy in the fourth photo is holding up. And the NRA hat is a really nice touch!
The league, the players and the sports media establishment need to figure out that sports are a refuge and escape from politics. That is why I watch sports. When I cannot escape politics by watching sports then I cany keep the tv on.
Hurricanes, elections, and the Olympics; what could they have done? Just like Hillary, the NFL has run into bad luck through no fault of their own.
Like watch the grass grow, in my case.
Well, among the varied reasons suggested for the decline, Leftists are mostly importing soccer fans thanks to illegal and legal immigration. I have zero sympathy for the NFL.
I was kind of hoping this would blow over after a few weeks, but after what happened to Raiders QB Derek Carr, I am finished. I will never watch again while the NFL is supporting full-on racism in addition to anti-Americanism. If the NFL loses my brother as a fan, they will truly be finished. Don’t think it’s happened yet, but we’ll see after this weekend.

I see you also have a subliminal post. LOL
Indeed, he was the first; however, there are 32 owners who employ a commissioner. It was the commissioner's job to put a stop to this and the owner's job to make sure he did. Kaepernick is just a washed up player who tried to cash in.
There is a story in my family that my great-grandfather would sit in a front porch rocking chair in his retirement, holding a fly swatter. He would swat flies and flick the fly to a chicken who was always waiting nearby, who would run up and snatch the fly. They said he entertained himself that way for hours.
