NFL TV audience numbers continue
to decline early in 2017 season

MSN Sports, by Michael McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/12/2017 3:27:22 PM

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´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. ;-)

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 health of a nation’s economy and the health of its people are connected, but in some surprising ways. At times like these, when the economy is strong and unemployment is low, research has found that death rates rise. At least, in the short term. In the long term, economic growth is good for health. What’s going on? One study of European countries just before and during the Great Recession found that a one-percentage-point increase in the unemployment rate is associated with an 0.5 percent decline in the overall mortality rate. Other studies of Europe during different periods, as well

Netflix’s House of Cards helped Russian troll factory workers craft messages messages slamming Hillary Clinton that they posted in comments section of Washington Post and New York Times reports during the 2016 presidential race.

Three Maine roofers put their hammers down and stood up to show respect for the national anthem on Saturday, in the process unknowingly posing for a photo that´s been used to symbolize one side of the contentious nationwide debate about "The Star-Spangled Banner."

As a state that can make or break presidential campaigns, and one that had regularly sent liberal Democrats to Washington, Iowa now serves as a test of whether Democrats can win back white voters who have swung toward the Republican Party over the last decade.

Former President George W.

New York — An upcoming memoir from Sen. John McCain has taken on new meaning since he first decided to write it. “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations” is scheduled to come out in April, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Friday.

Former President George W. Bush emerged from retirement on Thursday to stage a broad attack on President Donald Trump and the movement that supports him. Without mentioning Trump by name, Bush accused him of “casual cruelty” in political discourse, of distorting nationalism into “nativism,” and of emboldening bigotry and white supremacy. He called for a renewed commitment to American global leadership and domestic citizenship. It was a call to national unity — against Trump and his supporters, who were reduced to labels and caricatures: “protectionism,” “isolationist sentiments,” and the like. “Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples

A psychologist taking part in his treatment told TMZ that Weinstein would remain in Arizona for a month or so after his week of outpatient ´intensive therapy´ ends on Saturday.

The psychologist downplayed previous reports that the 65-year-old film producer had fallen asleep in group sessions and ranted about conspiracy theories. ´He showed up for all the

For fark’s sake. The guy’s accused of rape, by more than one woman. What sort of behavior does she think “invited” that? Even his somewhat less egregious offenses are inexplicable in terms of an invitation. Does anyone think Lauren Sivan put out the vibe upon meeting famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein that she was hoping to watch him furtively whack it into a potted plant in a dark corner of an empty restaurant kitchen? The more aggressive harassment is, the harder it is to explain in terms of a misconstrued female “invitation.” Actual assault is plainly indefensible, yet here’s Eddie
