Just keep getting worse by the players kneeling during the national anthem. Disrespecting the flag and the fans keeps making it worse.

Look for another significant dip in ratings for NFL football this season.

You are so right. NFL needs a star who represents America in the 50s. That would bump the ratings just like jobs flourished in the US in 1999.

I can't believe people are still attributing the numbers to the kneeling during the National Anthem.

It probably has had some impact, but not as much as some folks think.

Is anyone out there actually depriving themselves of football because they disagree with the kneeling?

Seems self defeating to me.

I'm sure there are some folks just as some folks avoid Hobby Lobby for other reasons, etc. Of course not watching an NFL game isn't really "depriving" oneself of anything though.

I guess I'm just an uber football fan. Shoot, I even watched CFL over the summer just to keep myself from going crazy.

You guys missed a good game. It was neck and neck in the first half and then KC dominated the second half.

Unless you are a Patriot fan, that was an awesome game.
