As you know, the NFL's ratings have been declining lately. Why do you think this is?

The ratings are declining because less people are watching???

I heard that a lot of fans quit watching after Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem. When the NFL didn't respond some people got mad. I quit watching back in 1989 so - .

I think you're right on that.

There is a pretty good website out there that lets you stream games for free. I was impressed with how well it worked the couple times I used it this year. If it wasn't for going to the local sports bar to just chat with my fellow Bills fans then I would probably just stay home and watch all the games for free.

Not sure if this is allowed, but could you PM me the site?

People will blame Kaepernick. Let's see. Manning is retired and Brady missed a quarter of the season. Can we blame Trump too?

(Also the AFC just flat out sucked this year.)

All the concussions and stories of former stars who have dementia and Parkinson's by their 50s may be souring some on the sport as well.

So....how did the AFC manage to be 2 games better than the NFC in interleague play?

I swear some of you just throw stuff out for the sake of saying it.
