NFL Ratings Tank on Opening Night

Sep 11, 2017

Last year after mediocre quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, decided to make a bizarre political statement by refusing to stand for the national anthem, the NFL and its commissioner Roger Goodell did nothing. However, many fans were outraged and the ratings for NFL games started falling. This year during the preseason more overpaid, spoiled players, joined in disrespecting the anthem, the flag, our military, and our veterans.

Once again the NFL did nothing so the fans reacted. The season opening game between the Chiefs and the Patriots had 12% less viewers than last season’s opener. If this continues it will not be long before advertisers take notice and start cutting back on their advertising for the games.
