The ratings are in and it was bad news for the NFL
National anthem protests sparked by Colin Kaepernick have tarnished the NFL.
Fans are turning off their TV’s in droves.
And you won’t believe how low the NFL’s latest ratings have sunk.
A handful of teams owners have scrambled to stop more anti-American protests in order to prevent another embarrassing season.
But it looks like it might be too little, too late.
The ratings are in and it was bad news for the NFL.
Deadline Hollywood reports:
Sunday Night Football’s Ratings Hit Season Low As Baltimore Ravens Rip Steelers.
In a 26-14 win on SNF, the Ravens are now 3-1 this season and the Keystone State team is near the bottom of the AFC North. The game in Pittsburgh on Sunday also saw another type of bottoming out in the ratings for the league and the NFL, as the primetime Week 4 matchup drew a 12.3/21 in metered-market results to hit a season low.
The early number is down 10% from the Detroit Lions’ easy win over the New England Patriots last week.
What’s even more surprising was this was a rivalry matchup including one of the league’s premier franchises.
It’s no secret that most of the NFL’s viewers are patriot Americans.
Just consider the types of advertisements shown at commercial breaks.
When these players declared their hatred for President Trump and our men and women in law enforcement, it angered many Americans.
Many fans are boycotting the NFL and switching to college football in response.
Do you plan on watching this season given the disrespectful protests against the American flag?
