NFL TV audience numbers continue
to decline early in 2017 season

MSN Sports, by Michael McCarthy

No wonder alarm bells are sounding in NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s office. The league´s average TV audience through Week 5 of the 2017 season dropped 7 percent vs. the same period of the 2016 season, according to Nielsen data obtained by Sporting News. Worse for the league, the average game audiences are down 18 percent compared to the first five weeks of the 2015 season. (Snip) Partner networks ESPN, CBS Sports, NBC Sports and Fox Sports promise advertisers and sponsors certain audience numbers. If those numbers are not reached, the networks have to cough up so-called "make-goods," or free ads,

Comments:
It´s hard to argue with the numbers. Since 2015, down almost 20%.

"The "Colin Kaepernick Effect" is one of several possible factors in dampening the NFL´s TV numbers"

Excuse me, One of several possible factors!

It´s the only factor!

I didn´t watch the NFL for the first time in decades this past month.

I don´t care to watch people who hate me and my country, even if they are coerced to stand.

I´ve never been a sports fan, but I come from a family of football fanatics.

I am amazed, that every single member of my family (close and extended) has stopped watching. This was the center of their weekends and they just stopped cold turkey.

I suspect they will never watch again, regardless of what the league eventually does.

I would never have believed it. Boy, did the NFL really mess up!

If they hadn´t been so bamfuzzled by the political correctness of never referring to an act of a black person as improper, they might have had the good sense to do the right thing from the start and this would have been nipped in the bud.

Alas, pc liberals, our President is correct in another instance, again. ;-)

I love it! Looks like The Flyover Country Boycott Revolution is working. And hey Hollywood. You were in literal financial freefall, as well, even before the Weinstein story. Guess what, geniuses, when you criticize the fans that pay your ridiculous salaries, you lose your audience. We the people have the power to put you both out of business!

Most NFLers were poor before becoming pro. Raised under the government entitlement culture, special treatment throughout high school because they were black, and under no obligation to learn to read and write. Now that they´re millionaires, they feel oppressed and thinking they were unfairly treated by America? Blacks will NEVER outgrow slavery, and will always live under the imaginary world of being OPPRESSED by everybody else except BLACKS.

Sad to see the NFL jumping on board the social justice train which is nothing more than a front for anti-American rhetoric coming from all the America-haters out there.

The NFL seems to be doubling down thinking they can tell their audience what to think. They may survive, but they will never recover.

When I was in high school in the early ´70´s, I met several of the Redskins players at a charity basketball game. They were good guys.

Fast forward to today.
The NFL players dropped a feces in the punchbowl with this ´protesting´ stunt.

Now that I see what low-life people populate today´s NFL, I have no desire to ever watch them again.

The NFL can scoop the feces from the punchbowl, but I ain´t drinkin´ from it!

The government spends billions to help send low-

It’s no secret finishing college is more difficult for low-income students. But new government data show just how hard that struggle can be. At four-year colleges, just under half of students who received Pell Grants — federal aid awarded to millions of low income families each year — went on to earn a bachelor’s degree within six years, according to a Money analysis of Education Department data released Thursday. That’s compared with 67% of students who did not receive the grant. (Snip) Since 2000, the federal government has spent roughly $400 billion on the Pell Grant program, with annual spending

Natasha De Alencar was sitting at home after a trip to Walmart in April when a phone rang. It was President Donald Trump, and he wanted to talk about her husband. Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar had just been brought back to the U.S. in a flag-draped casket from Afghanistan days earlier. The member of the 7th Special Forces group was killed on April 8 — the first American killed in combat in Afghanistan this year, according to a tally kept by iCasualties.

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan
to Donald Trump: Your jealousy drives NFL criticism
United Press International, by Staff    Original Article

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan thinks he knows why President Donald Trump has had the NFL in his crosshairs. Jealousy. "This is a very personal issue with him," Khan told USA Today after Wednesday´s owners meetings concluded in New York regarding Trump´s insistence that the league´s players should all stand during the national anthem. Trump attempted to buy the Buffalo Bills in 2014, but his bid failed. Khan believes that might be fueling the President´s unrelenting criticism of the widespread player protests during the anthem this season. "He´s been elected President, where maybe a great goal he had in life

A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´.  Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume. They are however allowed to wear costumes to an

WASHINGTON — A young Barack Obama questioned his place in the world and his racial identity, agonized over whether he´d make enough money as a community organizer, and lamented his incompatibility with his ex-girlfriend in 30 pages of letters he wrote to her that are now being archived by Emory University in Atlanta. (Snip) "My ideas aren´t as crystallized as they were while in school, but they have an immediacy and weight that may be more useful if and when I´m less observer and more participant," Obama wrote in 1984 to McNear, who was a student at a California college

California first state to legally

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Sunday signed new legislation that will allow state residents to choose a gender option other than male or female on official documents. The legislation, a top priority of civil rights groups, also makes it easier for transgender people to change their gender identification on birth certificates or driver’s licenses. (Snip) The measure requires California’s registrar to issue new birth certificates to those born in the state who want to identify as a different gender, or as a third nonbinary option known as “intersex.” It deletes a requirement in state law that an applicant undergo treatment and

The legendary Bigfoot and other creatures like it have reportedly been spotted near a Northern California lake, according to a paranormal investigator. Jeffrey Gonzalez, a self-described paranormal expert, said he heard about the sighting from a local farmer who said he saw the creature and five others running on his ranch near Avocado Lake. “One of them, which was extremely tall, had a pig over its shoulder," Gonzalez said in comments obtained by Fox 26, a Fox News affiliate. "And the five scattered and the one with the pig was running so fast it didn’t see an irrigation pipe and

Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan, is whining that the US treated him worse than the Taliban. The 31-year-old sergeant told British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview reported in The Sunday Times of London: “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat.’ ” That got him less upset than the “administrative duties” the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said. “Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for

The widow of fallen American soldier Sgt. La David T. Johnson appeared on Good Morning America Monday to discuss the death of her husband as well as the now-notorious call she received from President Donald Trump. Myeshia Johnson first told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that she has yet to receive full details about the death of her husband — — a soldier who was killed in an ambush in Niger by ISIS-affiliated militants — and has a number of questions over what led to his death. The consolation call Myeshia received from Trump has become a point of controversy this week,

Sen. John McCain appeared to take a swipe at President Trump in an interview that aired Sunday when he called out the “highest income” Americans at the time who found a doctor to say they had a “bone spur” so they could avoid the Vietnam draft. McCain was interviewed on C-CPAN3, American TV and talked about the war. The interview was wide ranging, but he mentioned the draft. “We drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur,” McCain said “That is wrong.

The business decision of the NFL to isolate and ridicule well over half of their fan (customer) base will easily, very easily, go down in history as the most stunningly stupid decision in the history of any American business enterprise. The vast majority of NFL fans held a middle-class, center-right, common sense, and patriotic outlook toward sports and entertainment overall. In essence most of the NFL fan base are/were positively MAGA-minded. It reflects the profound disconnect between the corporation and their customer base that the NFL didn’t recognize the danger in making social justice causes part of their business enterprise.

Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By
