The final ratings are in and NFL execs are pulling their hair out

The NFL has tried to downplay its problem with national anthem protesters.

With the regular season coming to a close, executives thought they were out of the woods.

But the ratings came in and it was historically bad.

The final Monday Night Football game of the season between the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders drew a record low rating of 5.4.

That was five percent lower than the previous record low for any Monday Night Football game.

NBC Sports reports:

Christmas Eve plus a game between two non-playoff teams equals bad ratings.

How bad? Broncos-Raiders generated an all-time low for Monday Night Football.

According to Austin Karp of SportsBusiness Journal, the 5.4 rating came in five percent lower than the previous record low for the prime-time Monday package. That number, a 5.7, came in 2016, when a contest between the Falcons and Saints competed with (and lost badly to) the first Clinton-Trump debate.

The NFL once thought it could do no wrong.

But then Colin Kaepernick ignited national anthem protests.

And anti-American kneeling during the anthem took the league by storm.

Many loyal fans turned off their TVs and even burned old jerseys to show they stand with our servicemen and women.

Now the NFL has a crisis on its hands as advertisers will be knocking on their doors.

  1. To bad for the nfl. Eagles fan all my life until they kneeled on the skulls of our fallen heroes. I heard rumors that the Eagles felt they had played in a superbowl pile of trash. If so the game is void. The players that stand should be critical of the weaklings who kneel. Bankruptcy is the touch down I’m looking for.

      Banruptcy is what happens when you lose the fans and the owners missed that fact in their attempts to placate their PC babies. Those over entitled players who must think they have been abused. Seems like if they did want to help it would be with their millions to help kids in trouble. But no, they want the rest of the country to bail out their race only.

    I got rid of my FACEBOOK page and I am done with FOOTBALL forever. More time with family and other hobbies to pursue.. I will olive a much richer life away from the tele and save a lot of cash not going to games. Will take the family to see Mt. Rushmore and other great places instead. Glad this happened.!

    The NFL has no one to blame except the commissioner. You know, the clown they voted to pay $1M per week. That ass forbade players from doing some righteous tributes. Such as wearing a ribbon for the slain police officers. Forbidding players from wearing ribbons for breast cancer. Just to name two. But the list goes on.

    Yet for some reason, he gave Kappernack a pass on this? Why would he do this? Was he caught with a dead hooker? Or a live boy? This is all on him. He could have stopped this crap, day one. But he didn’t.

    Yes, this is the United States of America. Yes he has the right to protest. However, protest on your own time. Sunday afternoon, you are playing ball. You are on the clock, getting paid. If you are not that happy with your profession, you can go to Sears and see how you like selling Lady Kenmores.

    By the way, start protesting while you’re on the clock at Sears, you will be fired there as well.

    So, Kappernack, you candy ass bitch, you will not disrespect the flag that I served under and not have some repercussions. Sorry. You got nothing more than what was deserved.

    Many men paid for that flag with their lives. It only seems fitting, since you did not serve, that you pay for it with your livelihood. The NFL as well with all the loss of revenue.

    Most people show the veterans the respect and the gratitude that they deserve, but have never asked for. Others, Jane Fonda comes to mind, have just crapped all over them. DO NOT underestimate the power of the Veteran.

    I am boycotting sports in general at all levels. They are making way too much money and believe somehow that this gives them the right to tell us what to do and how to think. They have NOT been elected to anything. I also, am boycotting Nike, several of the major hotel chains, Nestle’s, Facebook, Google, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and several others. After about five years these folks are going to realize that playing politics is bad for business and they will stop, or go out of business and I couldn’t care less which it is.

  7. Terry L says:

    Actually I never turned it on in the first place.

    First off they think these ACTIONS that defy and disrespect our nation is some sort of PROTEST but can not even come up with a clear reason most cite the fact they DISAGREE with evidence in certain cases of self defense for it.

    Second they have FIRED people for far less examples are anyone who displayed even harmless affirmations if someone complained because they recognized it as originating in religious literature.

    Yet the act as if the ACTIONS of disrespecting this entire nation over PERCEIVED injustice they can provide no valid evidence of (disagreeing with evidence and a court ruling based on that evidence is not evidence of injustice).

  8. Frank says:

    I pray nightly and at every meal to Thank God for the gifts he has given me, and for the players of the soon to be defunct n f l, who take a knee when the National Anthem is played, to go broke and wind up living on a grate over a subway air vent, and the team owners who allow this garbage to suffer from testicular cancer. Thank you Jesus.

  9. gunsmoke says:

    Most, if not all, owners and a vast majority of players have a common thread….GREED! The only thing they care about is their $$$ and screw the spectator. Crash and burn NFL. The smart ones will survive; the ignorant slobs will end up being gutter tramps……..doped up and/or in prison and penniless and beggars. Life will go on; our personal lives will be enriched with better choices.

It was the greatest experiment in the world and still the majority thinks so. But those who are in the lime light, should be more so as they have a job that pays them for talent, not their political views..as Owners you also must be thankful for your position…If not for the average individual who sacrifices his dreams,, and places them on hold to defend your ignorant protests in public…You deserve the back-lass of those who serve to protect. God Bless America…Greatest Experiment in the world.

    When are whites going to realize how prejudice blacks are towards us? They’ll smile to your face and stab you in the back. Not all of them but most of them carry around a deeply hidden hatred because they’re black. If they outnumbered whites in this country they would be treating us much worse than they were ever treated, you can bet on that.

    • DJ says:

      You have said what millions of white people feel. Every single entity in this country has a black sub group. From congress to the BET awards. Many blacks will vote regardless of qualifications for another black person. I am not painting a wide brush because there are free thinkers and non prejudice blacks. Unfortunately they are known as Uncle Toms in their black communities and face prejudice from their own race. I personally wish the government would outlaw political affiliations and everyone was an independent. What a country this would be……

  20. Bill says:

    A black asshole is still going to be a black asshole whether or not I watch football . I’m not going to let them take away my Sunday afternoon entertainment. I don’t support them monetarily by watching a game on tv. I never attend a game or buy any NFL paraphanelia. I always record the games I want to see and fast forward through all the commercials so I’m not being influenced by the commercials. Call me a sellout if you want I’m not giving up football because of the actions of a handful of disrespectful assholes.

Yes a lot of people of color get a raw deal ! But showing disgrace to the country they live in is not going to make people respect them more it is doing just the opposite & turning people against them (not just over paid ball players but all people of color) These RICH spoiled children need to look around & smell the coffee & play ball games not POLITICAL GAMES

    The NFL thinks they are bigger than AMERICA, from the commissioner right down to the players. It’s time all AMERICANS stop watching or buying any products from the league or its advertising. It’s either AMERICA or the nfl, which means “not for long”. Take a stand AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Gerry says:

      Nice thought Steve but it will never happen. There are way too many weak dirtbags that couldn’t care less about this country and will continue to go to games or watch them on tv. I still run into way too many people who think just because they live in this country they are entitled. I left an organization because I was running into people who asked — what’s this organization going to do for me — NOT — what can I do for this organization, like it used to be.

      Such kind words. You speak of tolerance? Seriously? You are one of the many wearing a blindfold and drinking the liberal kool-aid. You simply don’t get it. Try this….Democrats fought FOR slavery; Republicans fought to end slavery. Republicans wish to provide everyone with an ability to make their lives as easy and fruitful as possible. However, that comes with hard work and effort….not waiting for the next handout. Liberals seek to dole out government dollars to keep those who they deem as undesirable in housing projects and away from their million dollar homes. Liberals have been sold down the road with promise after promise of free stuff. And where has it gotten them? Liberals want government control. Why? Because the politicians will dictate everything you do and leave no motivation to better yourself or situation. It is absolutely amazing that anyone would vote for a liberal. And by the way, you liberals have played out the race, homophobe, misogynist and other names you like to call conservatives. You should look at your Representatives in Congress if you want to find the real racists. In the meantime, we will pray for your healing. Have a great day.

    • RJOGuillory says:

      …no…you are sadly, and most assuredly wrong, while displaying your inability to grasp the reality of the situation. The NFL is an entertainment venue, which operates under it’s own business principles, but is in the business of satisfying their customers, just as any other business. Regardless of the legitimate need for protest against all government and police-abuse against all Americans, The NFL and it’s partners…(The Players)…decided to make their protest about racial issues, and then chose one of the most honored traditions and belief systems of their paying customers to protest against, thus terribly insulting their customer base. Instead of using their platform… (away from the field)…and using their money, popularity and celebrity to address the Constitutional abuses against all Americans, the NFL chose to let their players insult their customers…and allowed for an illegal work environment by allowing only black players to stand over only white players they had tackled, while holding …”The Black Power Sign”…aloft and roaring to the crowd. If a white player had tackled a black player and then stood on the field giving a KKK symbol or a Nazi salute, they’d be kicked out of the league in a heartbeat, and perhaps charged with hate crimes. Instead The NFL and it’s Ref’s allowed for a racially- hostile work environment to exist on the field. Had I been one of those tackled white-players who were subjected to the Black Power Sign, I would have walked off the field and filed a multi-billion dollar law suit against The NFL for allowing such a racially-hostile-work-environment to exist in the workplace. And considering The NFL averages an arrest per week of it’s players, I don’t think too many of those insulted fans were ready to be preached to by simply athletes who are paid to play…not to preach. Try that at your workplace next time you go in. When it’s time to do your job, just kneel in protest. See how long you are employed. In the real world, this doesn’t work…because as Sam Walton once said…”everyone of us can be fired tomorrow…by the customer”. Nothing wrong with their protesting an issue they care about, but they screwed up by doing it at work, targeting their customers…and by making it a racial issue. one only has to look at the internet today to find Constitutional Abuses against whites, blacks and other minorities. The real minority in America these days are those who wish to crush America, steal our natural rights and roll us into us The new World Order. These players, and yourself…seem to believe…(or act like you believe) …that NFL owners, Rodger, or any of the elite in this world care about you, your rights or your well being. Grow up. They don’t. They care about power and money. I hope they lose huge amounts of both.

    I stopped watching FOOTBALL, not b/c of Kaepernick, but b/c of the low caliber of the players (not all, of course). When you pay millions of dollars to girlfriend killers, wife beaters, pregnant girlfriend killers, drug addicts, convicted felons, etc. etc., what kind of message is a “professional” organization sending to those who are influenced by people who are supposed to be pillars of society? Such endorsements of such DEPLORABLES is beyond reprehensible. Are these the role models we want to expose our sports-loving younger generation to?

  45. Cathy Floyd says:

    I once loved football and was an avid fan,but when the anti-American protest started I went cold-turkeyand haven’t watched a game either live or on tv. Football was once intertainment,not political propaganda. I find that my love for my country is much greater than watching a bunch of spoiled brats who hate the country that gave them everything and the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect us all.

  46. Wendell Fountain says:

    I played football when I was a boy, and at age 74 I watched it most of my life, but no one disrespects my country without having to suffer for their decisions. I’m typical of those who lost interest in the NFL. If the league is to be salvaged, it is in the hands of young people, because until we old people are dead and gone, we will never support the NFL again. We are done!

  50. Bob Ptak says:

    The NFL owners and Commissioner are to blame for not being stronger on players who would not stand during the Anthem…As a result the NFL has lost all credibility with most ex fans…iI no longer care to watch NFL games….College football is more exciting anyway

  51. Jack says:

    Only way to save the NFL, is to get rid of the current Commissioner! Put someone in there who will reflect the majority of their fans, sponsors and viewers. An American Patriot……lots of them out here who qualify for the job. First job for the new guy/gal, would be to force the owners to fire the kneelers. This ongoing fiasco could be solved for all of us….in one season.

  52. Ernst says:

    I could not stand the disrespect for the symbol of this country and its people. There are a few bad people in the US, but most are excellent, kind, honest, respectful people. The kneeling action was bad, but the League response was worse. The League game many millions of dollars to “social justice” and racist organizations like BLM. I cannot countenance support for racially divisive groups hostile to my country. I will never be an NFL fan again!

  53. Jan13 says:

    The kneeling crap plus the dancing after every touchdown, tackle. Since these clowns play football, isn’t that part of the job? Scoring points and trying to keep the other team from scoring? I don’t remember doing a dance when I did my job.

    Kaepernick is a over indulged, spoiled puke. Adopted and raised by liberals he has the poor baby syndrome. He was originally busted for sitting on the bench (while all other team members stood) during the anthem and only came up with the protest BS when he was called on his sitting. In my opinion he was not that great of a player and the only thing he was protesting was probably the fact that he wasn’t the starting QB.

      Keith, That is 100% correct. Being an EX- 49er fan I used to watch them very closely.
      He did in fact sit because he was benched, Not for the reasons he has made up. As i understand it was at the suggestion of his girlfriend. Colon Crappernick is an entitled, immature little child. I bet his Momma’s proud now!

    That is fine if you are not a Liberal who does appreciate freedom and respect for our country. Apparently, you are not for Trump and he is the only President who is trying to make our country better and allow us to have our freedom, rather than a Liberal who has no respect for authority or our freedom. God is on our side!!
    This is not a duplicate comment!!

    Expecting athletic teams to show respect for the country if the anthem is played goes without saying. I would say that those who are kneeling are encouraging divisiveness and should be rightfully ignored.

    Really? Did anyone see them pull their hair out? Such exaggerated rhetoric undermines this site’s credibility.

    • ArtM says:

      It’s an expression. You don’t have to be so literal.

      • Roman says:

        It is better to be factual than to use such inflammatory expressions. Otherwise, one comes across as a propagandist.

        • Dave Miedema says:

          And your getting triggered by a common expression reveals you to be a snowflake liberal.

          • Roman says:

            Dave Miedema: I am a thoughtful individual. I resent labels and I resent heated exaggerated rhetoric. Now, some pro-Trumpers may like heated divisive exaggerated rhetoric – but I dismiss them as extremists who encourage hatred and divisiveness. I would like to note that such rhetoric is counter-productive to making America Great . Remember, in unity there is strength.

          • BigJoe says:

            You’re right about Roman. He is a snowflake liberal. He says he doesn’t like labels because he’s the one being labeled. Lefties spread propaganda 24/7 and then blame the right for manipulating the truth.
