That was actually a myth. Hunt never said that.

Thanks, it Ps'es me off that something like this is false. I guess the owners aren't as patriotic as we hoped. It's all about the moneyyyyy, give me the monnneeyyy.

America was founded with money on the mind. No need to stop now.

Patriotism itself is used as a moneymaking tool.

Ok did the NFL get more or less from the low ratings?

  1. Cutting the cord - The phenomenon of television consumers refusing to pay cable giants for original content is real, and it's growing.
  2. Bad programming - ESPN has struggled for many years to find new, compelling content to draw in new viewers while keeping their existing viewers engaged.
  3. Agenda-driven programming - The brass at ESPN has taken a decidedly leftward tack in its programming. [G]one are the days when ESPN kept politics out of its programming and deliberately avoided alienating half of its audience.
  4. Overpayment for rights fees - ESPN has grossly overpaid for rights fees for the NFL and NBA, and is locked into those deals for several years. Sunday Night Football -- available for free on NBC -- has eclipsed Monday Night Football on ESPN (for an expensive subscription) in importance and viewership.
  5. Ratings for live sporting events are down - Ratings for Monday Night Football dropped 24% in 2016. The blame for this is shared equally by the NFL and its corporate media partners.

May I present Exhibit A for Agenda Driven Programming - Jemele Hill

Jemele Hill yesterday tweeted that Donald Trump is a white supremacist. ESPN apologizes for her and nothing comes of it. Now, I remember Curt Shilling being fired for espousing his political views. The hypocrisy is apparent a reason folks are fed up with and disconnecting from ESPN.

Schilling had a long history of posting inflammatory things against liberals, muslims, transgender people, etc. There were many Curt Schilling twitter controversies, ESPN apologies, and second chances before he was fired.

Having said that, it was a dumb thing to post, I don't ageee with it, and I think she should face some repercussions.

It's just a little early to be screaming hypocrisy. Schilling didn't tweet one controversial thing and then get fired; he had a long history of controversial tweets and second chances from ESPN before he was canned.

Linda Cohn was suspended. The Adler thing was just Twitter justice warriors getting their way and ESPN should pay for that one.

If the Cowboys and Giants had been the opener, you probably would have had record ratings.

The Patriots have always been unpopular and boring and the chiefs are more of a regional fan base.

Ummm That was the Sunday night game and it Got fewer viewers than the Thursday night game.

ESPN doesn't get the rating that it used to in my opinion because there are just way too many choices now. Shoot, there must be like 5 or 6 ESPN channels, two or three Fox channels, NBC sports, CBS sports. BEIN sports, even the conferences have their own channels now.

I think it has nothing at all to do with politics.

The reason you noted above no undoubtedly has some impact on viewership; however, to think politics plays no part is naive. Anyway, if someone has stopped watching for another reason, the political nonsense just gives him/her another reason to not return. Personally, I don't watch ESPN because I can't stand all the talk shows. I'll watch a live sporting event, but that's all, at least on ESPN.

I only watch the live sporting events as well. I used to watch a lot more when the original guys were on there too.

I don't hardly recognize anyone on that channel anymore
