Fans turning off the NFL with players continuing to disrespect the fans and the flag during the national anthem.

It going to another ugly year for the NFL if the players keep this up. Turning their fans away will mean multi-million dollar paydays will be no more.

All we can say is that ratings are down. We have no idea why ratings might be down, although I sincerely doubt the reason you posit is playing too big a role.

And you'd be spectacularly wrong.

It's played a direct role and there have been surveys/polls that say exactly that. Look at the Cheerleaders channel msespn, how them ratings going?

People are disgusted by the disrespect and arrogance/entitlement of a bunch of million dollar crybabies. Who do they think are paying those salaries? The owners? 03-lmfao

Doesn't really explain how football ratings are down across the board.

I think it is a head fake. There are more systematic issues in play. There's the whole changing the way we are entertained away from broadcasts (or any kind), and the fact that football in general just isn't as popular a sport as it was at its peak.

That was actually a myth. Hunt never said that.

Amazing, for all the complaints about "fake news", how many Facebook posts, Twitter memes, and spam emails I see reposted as fact on here.

Winner.

Broadcast/cable ratings are down everywhere. Sports, tv shows, all of it. NFL Ratings aren't down 9% because some Cleveland Browns sat during a preseason game. People aren't canceling their cable (you can't just cancel ESPN with most cable plans) because of the "liberal bias" of ESPN.

I'm sure SOME people are doing that. I've yet to see any proof that it's enough to hurt the NFL.

The NFL is going to be fine. They have sucked at streaming games for a long time, but they are getting better. For all of these conservative wet dreams about the NFL failing and the money drying up , they still had 10 of the top 25 watched broadcasts of 2016. They are the number 1 sport, and sports are the only DVR proof thing left on TV. The numbers might not be what they once were, but that's true for everything on broadcast networks and cable.

Kap was in the Raven's office ready to sign when his girlfriend tweeted that theRavens owner was like a slave owner.

The NFL has a simple solution to the knuckleheads kneeling for the National Anthem. Keep all the players in the locket room like the colleges do. If they want to kneel there, only the team sees them.
