NFL Ratings Reveal How America Really Feels About All This Protesting
Kaepernick ruined the NFL for many fans. Fans were less than pleased with how Kaepernick has made Monday football into a political thing. The BLM movement just brought it to the next level where now the NFL is over the top with their pandering. They have pushed teams to have more black coaches and management and have even instilled a new Black National Anthem? I guess black people have their own national anthem now... But America is clearly not all on board with this and it shows in ratings that have taken a 20%+ nosedive, except for when a game is broadcast on FOX.
"...The doubleheader on Monday night represented a major downtick in viewership from the same time slots a season ago.
- Steelers at Giants: This game drew 10.8 million viewers on ESPN, down 21% from the early-game opener during Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season
- Titans at Broncos: Drew 7.7 million viewers, down a whopping 38% from the late game last year.
These are just some startling numbers right here. They are also a continuation of a trend around the NFL world thus far on the young season.
This comes after the “Sunday Night Football” matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Rams in Los Angeles saw a drop of 16.1% from last season’s opener. America’s Team being unable to draw 15 million viewers during a global pandemic in which people are at home more often than in the past can’t be seen as great news for the NFL."
But is anyone really surprised here? The pandering is getting ridiculous. People do not tune into a football game so they can be attacked by politics. But that's the way the NFL is heading. How long is it going to take for the NFL to gets the message that no one wants to watch this political B.S... If that were not bad enough fans now have to watch highly paid football players join together to disrespect the flag. So the NFL wants to spit in the eye of patriotism and then expects Americans to tune in for the game after?
