The NFL’s ratings disaster just reached a whole new level
The NFL regular season is over and it’s one Roger Goodell can’t wait to put in the rear view.
The national anthem protests were the story of the season.
Now the final TV ratings numbers are in and the NFL’s worst nightmare has come true.
When NFL players decided to kneel for the national anthem, the Leftwing national media applauded them.
But their anti-America protest backfired big time and now the NFL is bleeding viewers.
NFL television ratings fell 9.7 percent during the 2017 regular season, according to numbers registered by Nielsen.
A typical game was watched by 1.6 million fewer people this season as compared to last season (14.9 million versus 16.5 million).
The last week of the season the NFL opted to cut its loses and not even show a Sunday night primetime game, which is usually the highest rated game each week.
This sharp decline could cut deep into the NFL’s pocketbook.
TV contracts are ending in the near future and the major networks will not get duped into signing a massive deal that would tie their hands in a declining product.
