NFL Blames Trump & Clinton For Ratings Decline, And Not Kaepernick

The NFL doesn’t want to take credit for their own actions, instead, they decided to blame the declined television ratings on the presidential race.

A leaked internal memo reveals why ratings are down 11 percent in the NFL, and one of the largest factors is the presidential race.

The NFL accused the first presidential debate for bringing ratings down on Monday Night Football. It’s likely they’ll use the same reason for their terrible ratings for the upcoming Sunday Night Football. However, it has been noted that this is no out of the ordinary for an election.

The NFL claimed:

“In 2000, during the campaign between George W. Bush and Al Gore, all four NFL broadcast partners suffered year-over-year declines — Fox was down 4 percent, CBS was down 10 percent, ABC was down 7 percent and ESPN was down 11 percent”

The memo had the nerve to place no responsibility on 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other players protesting the national anthem for a decline in writings.

The memo says: “Finally, it is worth noting that we see no evidence that concern over player protests during the national anthem is having any material impact on our ratings.”

JEEZ take responsibility for your actions NFL!
