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.

ESPN.com reports:

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.

    The NFL gets big bucks and pays NO TAXES. Time for a time out and shut them out!!!!!! Until they pay up to the IRS and the American people, they should not be put on national TV or cable. Let them play to dark tv’s. If they want money, go Pay per view TV, let the DIE HARD IDIOTS PAY TO WATCH ON TV.

    I’VE LOVED WATCHING FOOTBALL FOR QUITE AWHILE. HAVE BEEN A NEW ORLEANS SAINTS FAN, DALLAS AND PATRIOT FAN AS WELL. I’VE HAD IT WITH THESE OVERPAID FOLKS WHO PROBABLY COULDN’T GET A REAL JOB IF THEY HAD TOO. WHEN MY COUNTRY AND FLAG IS DISRESPECTED, THEN I’M AGAINST ALL OF THEM. ME AND ALOT OF MY FRIENDS , WHO ARE NO LONGER HERE, FOUGHT AND BLED SO THESE WORTHLESS EXCUSES OF AMERICANS COULD MAKE MILLIONS. I’M THROUGH WITH THE NFL, AND WILL BE TELLING EVERYONE I KNOW JUST WHY. LET THEM GO PROTEST ALL THEY WANT ON THEIR ON TIME, BUT DO NOT SPIT IN MY FACE. . . . . I GOT ENOUGH OF THAT WHEN I GOT OFF THE PLANE IN MEMPHIS, . . . I WON’T PUT UP WITH THAT ANY MORE. GOOD BY NFL.

    I’m done with the NFL and I’m NEVER going to be a fan again! It’s not about RACE, it’s about patriotism and love of country! I own an Arizona “Tillman” Jersey and I’ll never burn it, but every thing else NFL is gone! Everyone has the right to protest, but any group or any one person who ties a protest with the symbol of freedom and patriotism is actually dumber than dirt! They should have protested with the flag as the symbol of freedom, and demand it stands for them too! They would have gotten support and respect! The NFL chose protest over patriotism, which can’t be defended! I really like College football as it is pure desire and spirit to win for something you love! That being said, the NFL can take their game, wrap it in barbwire and stick it up their ass as far as they can! I will never ever watch another NFL game and I won’t buy any products of any advertisers that sponsor it! That is how we show the NFL what patriotism means! I hope I hear them squeal like the pigs they are!
