Ouch! NFL TV ratings drop again as
angry fans exercise their own rights

Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm

Pretty soon, it could be NFL team owners on their knees begging TV viewers to come back. Once again in Week 4 of the 2017 season, as players continued their sitting-kneeling protests against something, former fans silently exercised their right of free speech using TV remotes. Despite the always insightful, candid commentary of Jon Gruden, this week’s Monday Night game on ESPN lost audience again. It was actually a pretty good game, by all accounts. [Snip] This game though drew 13% fewer viewers than last week. And the drop was worse — 16% — in the key demo that ad

I believe if it were not for the fantasy fanatics, the NFL wouldn´t last another two years.

Methinks that a lot of people will find there is life after football and put the time to constructive use. What other form of entertainment would continually annoy the people they are dependent upon?

I intend to miss next week´s games. I´ve missed all of them so far, to this point. A couple more weeks and I won´t miss them at all, and will not have any withdrawal pains. So, as one of the NFLers said . . . Bye.

Once viewers are gone it´s unlikely they will return..and I know a few avid fans that still watch "their team" but no other games.
NFL´s Goodell hasn´t been motivated to rectify their situation and owners have bowed to their players (employees). Could get much worse..
people are sick of the in your face disrespect.

Our power lay in where we spend our $$ and what we watch. I hardly go to the movies anymore, and I will not be buying any NFL goods for Christmas for the first time for family members. Even though I do not watch football, Mama buys the merch. They have more pain coming.

The protesting players are not just disrespecting our flag, our anthem, our military and the police, which (if you´ll pardon a favorite leftist expression) triggers our patriotism (and anyone who thought Americans would choose football over America has just gotta be a leftist). They are also saying that we the American people are racist. Can you imagine any employees, no matter how talented and "special" deliberately insulting their employers´ customers? How unbelievably stupid.

Thank you #6. I called the number, easy to get through. They have a prompt for you to express your views.

There is not enough pain that can be inflicted on the NFL for the disrespect they have shown the flag, the country, the anthem, the military and law enforcement, and their fans.

There is NO doubt in my mind that if any of them were at that concert in Vegas, they would have scattered like the cowards they are, while those "evil" police were running towards the gunfire to help the victims and locate the shooter.

A pox on all of them!

It may have been a "good" game, but it will not be an "enjoyable" game until I hear a sincere apology from the league, and all the BLM protester types are gone.

My conscience would bother me if I ever watched another NFL game. So far, I can still watch my college team in good conscience.

Think of it this way... if the players weren´t playing football for big money, they would be shooting each other in Chicago or another swamp.

I wish someone would gather a list of all NFL TV game advertisers so we could have a massive boycott. Since I don´t watch the games anymore, I don´t know who are still backing this dishonorable behavior.

Bye bye NFL....

The owners and the league figured they could go along with this racist insanity for a couple of weeks, because the fans might get mad, but then they would forget and come back when things got back to "normal".

They weren´t counting on many of us discovering that we don´t miss professional football at all and will never come back.

As I have said several times, I am NOT boycotting the NFL and NBA. A boycott indicates a temporary situation. My husband and I will NEVER watch another second of the NFL or NBA!!!!!

The owners and racist players can choke on their racist hate of America!!!

I didn´t realize the league had sunk so low, Joe Lockhart spokesman. What problems are these twits protesting and what have they done to help? I don´t see anything. Same with BLM. If black lives matter why aren´t they promoting literacy. Literacy and finishing school. I haven´t seen one player say word one on either subject.

When you do that, they ask you why, and I told them that we weren´t supporting anyone who still advertised with the NFL, due to their racism and hate of America.

Hopefully they will hear that enough times to get them to drop their advertising from the NFL.

For two years prior to this I was tiring of the antics of ´Predator hair´ tattooed thugs but thanks to the anti-America protest they made it easy to stop viewing. Not to mention the gross half time show by Boyance at Super Bowl I´m gone.
The only piece of an NFL game I watched was a pre-season two quarters of someone but none since then. Bye bye to the BLM protest and Roger Goodell.

Led by Trump, Republicans set out
to commit communal suicide
McClatchy Newspapers, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 10/17/2017 5:25:23     Post Reply
Even more than 40 years later, picturing Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland in “Start the Revolution Without Me” sets me laughing. At a royal masquerade ball around the French Revolution, decorously dancing couples, one after another, pass around conspiratorial notes to “Kill the Duke,” “Kill the Duchess,” “Kill the Queen.” Until finally, the note “Kill Everybody.” It’s much less funny, but that’s what the Republican Party seems bent on doing this fall, committing communal suicide to mark its historic election successes of recent years. And in preparation for the 2018 midterm elections. [Snip] Yet Republicans in Washington can’t seem to get anything

Who knew when that walking tattoo billboard discovered social injustice in America last winter what a kneeling mess it would become for NFL players, the league and owners. The emotional controversy touches on patriotism, the flag, veterans, fallen troops, invited a tweeting president to stoke the flames, slashed TV ratings and, once again, aimed fire at Roger Goodell. [Snip] Unbeknownst to millions of fans and viewers on all sides, Goodell’s wife, Jane Skinner, has been secretly supporting hubby all over the digital battlefield of Twitter.

Any human communications can be tricky, polluted by bias, expectations, assumptions, many things. Nowhere are such communications more delicate — or important — than between media and political leaders in a free society, in this case the Trump White House and the press corps assigned there to gather and deliver accurate news to Americans. Chief of Staff John Kelly gave his first news briefing Thursday, a refreshingly genial, candid and succinct appearance for the Trump White House.

President Trump’s decision to decertify the Iran nuclear deal may or may not accomplish anything with that rogue nation’s ambitions to develop weapons of mass destruction and sow regional rebellion. But it certainly hands Congress a very hot falafel. It’s a similar move to Trump earlier this year handing over to Congress the DACA mess, aimed at deporting the grown children of illegal immigrants. ‘Here, I did my part, you guys handle throwing these folks out.’ Both moves allow Trump to check off two more campaign promises. [Snip] Sending it to Congress now is actually a compromise within the administration

The clock is ticking. It’s getting closer. Only 1,118 days until Election Day in 2020. So, naturally pollster thoughts turn to Nov. 3, 2020 and how the most clickable, news-making political personality in a long while might do. Oh, sure, worry warts and precision proponents will suggest a few things might occur to affect voters’ decision between now and then.

So, even though most Americans seem to have an opinion about this man, the YouGov/Economist polling folks asked Republicans: Do you want Donald Trump to run for

On Monday, a federal holiday, the commander-in-chief invited a former competitor for the GOP presidential nomination, Sen. Lindsey Graham, out for some golf at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.

While the nation was justifiably consumed with the awful human ravages of hurricanes and a wealthy, crazed sniper in Nevada, the most important deadline of the young Trump presidency suddenly looms: Certifying whether Iran is complying with the leaky nuclear deal “negotiated” by the Obama administration.

Most recently, he told everyone at the United Nations: “Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it, believe me.” We believe him this time.

Stand by for security pat-downs just to enter your resort hotel. It didn’t take long after Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas for resort hotels there to begin implementing new, far more strict security screenings simply to enter the building. Hotel guests at Wynn’s resort stood in line with a 10-minute wait to be screened. That’s likely to become a new normal as the country’s worst mass shooting forces major tourist meccas to radically re-imagine potential threats and expand their thinking about security against a new range of threats. As they did at any airport before boarding their flights to Vegas this week, patrons of Wynn’s

The media news narrative exiting Alabama’s GOP Senate runoff was that the selection of firebrand Judge Roy Moore as the Republican candidate for the December general election will probably cause radical changes in his party’s control of the U.S. Senate.

But they’re actually due to a variety of unusual reasons including chronic party disunity, not just Moore’s likely arrival on Capitol Hill come January. All this turmoil, including an unpredictable, deeply unpopular President Donald Trump vowing to do deals with Democrats,

Some Georgia high school football players had an inspiring little protest of their own this weekend. And it involved running, not kneeling. While pro National Football League players were locking arms and taking a knee across the country to protest someone or something or other, these high school players decided to exercise their freedom of speech a little differently in their country by celebrating America instead of criticizing it. The entire Fannin County Rebel team ran onto the field together, each player carrying a large U.S. flag. The patriotic display happened before their game with the Greater Atlanta Christian School

Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The

Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players´ protests before games.

Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton.

What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption.
