It's a stunning drop.
What is the end game here? Are you hoping for the end of proffesional football? Are you trying to force the NFL to do what you think is appropriate? Are you trying to throttle peaceful protests?
I mean, really ... what is your goal?

Until The league and advertisers feel the pain, they will continue to let this practice slide and not televise the Anthem.

I support this 100%
I'm a Veteran and this group does not speak for me.

I stopped watching pro sports because of all the military worship. Maybe Nike can come up with a branded pacifier that says "just suck it" for those so offended.

Obviously, you haven't been paying attention to that last bastion of rightie goodness, NASCAR. The stands are empty and the ratings are in the toilet. But feel free to continue on with your delusions.

A better way would be to boycott the sponsors who advertise on NFL on Veterans Day.

It's actually a double whammy for NASCAR. Not only are their audiences off 30 to 40 percent, viewers 18-49 (the most valuable segment to advertisers) make up only about a quarter of NASCAR viewers. NASCAR viewers are old.
I guess they are removing seats at the tracks so it's not as noticable on tv.

I don’t care if you don’t watch but why do you need to keep telling people?
Because they think if a tree falls in the forest nobody will hear it, and if they don't tell as many people as possible they are boycotting, it just won't matter. And it actually doesn't.

End Game? It's not Waldokitty as you seem to suggest.

It's about the NFL destroying it's brand with mainstream America. TV ratings are falling through the floor and stadiums are 1/2 empty.

It's quite stunning to watch a corporation ruin itself like this.

Delusions? That would be thinking that NASCAR has anything to do with what I said.


This is about the NFL and the fact that its destroying its brand.
