Week 13: NFL Attendance Crisis Continues! Empty Seats Greatly Outnumber Spectators!

0 153

The NFL attendance crisis has continued its downward spiral as this last week has shown ratings and attendance continue to drop.

Last week’s Thursday and Monday Night Football broadcasts closed out Week 12 with new lows in metered markets.

But the pictures of almost empty stadiums tell the real story. Keep in mind that game tickets are heavily priced on supply and demand, and that the ticket prices are at historic lows as well. 49er’s tix went as low as the price of two pretzels.

But now teams are having a real hard time filling seats! They still cannot fill the seats. Colin Kaepernick broke football!

To note just a few…Met Life stadium, for one, didn’t show too much life as the New York Jets faced down the Kansas City Chiefs in a close 38-31 game.

It just gets worse and worse for the NFL and they’ve done it all to themselves. Game, after game, after game of football this last weekend saw more empty seats than fans in them.

There were kneeling protests, fights and scuffles, and really bad football. That’s not what the league needs to turn things around for themselves before they slip into the deep, black pit of bankruptcy. Over a dozen football players continued their protests over the weekend in their first tantrum since the Thanksgiving holiday. The protests may have continued, but so did the boycott.

We are talking thousands of empty seats in these stadiums. It’s catastrophic for NFL football and they could fix it easily. But the NFL won’t do that. At least ten teams protested America, the National Anthem, the flag, police officers, the military and first responders this weekend. Photos of mostly empty stadiums flooded the Internet and were the subject of endless tweets and memes.

I have been saying for a year, protest all you want on your own time! Even Herschel Walker just backed me up!

Walker had a legendary college and pro football career, in which he absorbed and delivered some of the most memorable hits in the history of the game. He was the valedictorian of his high school and won the Heisman Trophy in 1982. On top of that he’s now a successful business man, so when he talks people listen.

Now, in his fifties, Walker is still delivering hits.

Speaking to reporters, Walker said, “I absolutely think the protests are so upsetting, and I blame the commissioner. I know people are going to be angry when I say it, but he should have stopped the protests at the very beginning.”

Walker continued, “Guys, let me tell you this. Our flag is very special, and black lives matter, but what we should do is go to Washington after the season and protest there instead. We have young men and women fighting for the flag. And we have to respect the White House.”

In the 1980s, Walker played for President Trump’s USFL New Jersey Generals.

This also isn’t the first time that Walker has spoken out on the NFL’s anthem protests. Back in September, Walker pleaded with the NFL to “take control” of the anthem issue. He suggested that Commissioner Goodell make a rule stating that all protests needed to happen on a players personal time, and not during games.

AMEN! That is what I’m talkin about!

Fired 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick began the protest movement last season. He remains unsigned and has filed a complaint that team owners colluded against him because of the protests aimed at police brutality against African Americans and other issues.

Total viewership for NFL football games is down 20 percent since 2015.

I just really do not understand why they do not get, protest on your own time… well maybe I do.

Sans the game, they have no voice because they are not really as big as they think they are. Maybe they have forgotten that they are a part of a team. Go figure!

Professional football is no longer America’s favorite sport as the NFL loses popularity due to players’ continuing to protest during the National Anthem. After months of ongoing controversy, the devastating impact on the NFL is evident with emerging pictures on social media of stadiums with vacant seats throughout the league.

It is real simple. Protest on your own time. These lazy 3-minute antics have not been a real protest anyway. These morons don’t have the intestinal fortitude to go out and really protest. They are too busy living their high lifestyle on the millions of dollars they have received while living the American Dream.
