Well, well, looks like the market has spoken for the NFL and they may not like what it says…
It appears that the NFL has had a seriously SUBSTANTIAL ratings drop for the network. As Americans, we can only take so much.
What used to be a much-loved sport has turned into a political game that liberals love to play. Talk about taking the fun out of football!
Despite what liberals think, not everything needs to be politicized.
Colin should have left his opinions off the field, and taken his stance elsewhere.
See what’s happened over his poor decision!
Although it’s not proven, of course, that the protests are the reason for the failing ratings, it’s highly likely that they are. There has been a notable movement on social media, with tags such as #NFLBoycott, to boycott the NFL in response to the disrespectful, dishonest protests.
There are plenty of people who watch the NFL because they want to escape everyday life, and the protest movement injects a divisive, destructive and false agenda into an arena where many people simply don’t want it.
CBS News Detroit reported the comments of James Olson of Birmingham, Michigan, who voiced his frustration: “I want to say to these guys ‘If you weren’t playing in the NFL, you would be working at McDonalds. I think people have had it.”
“Sports used to not be a stage for this, and now it is, so I’m turning it off,” Olson said. “I refused to watch the Chicago-Philadelphia game because they were going to protest… You start to figure out you can get along without football, there are other things out there I can do.”
Forbes Magazine reported the lagging NFL ratings: “Week 2 of the NFL season is picking up right where Week 1 ended in terms of TV ratings. This weekend’s Sunday Night Football failed to reverse the downward trend and the same holds true for last night’s Monday Night Football on ESPN.”
What a pleasant surprise, it goes to show you that it is the people who have the real control. This just proves that if we can come together over this issue we could be even stronger together over other injustices in the future.
Possibly, like keeping Hillary OUT of the White House.
Too bad football…sayonara
