NFL Hell: Ticket Prices Fall To $10
As Teams Struggle To Fill Stadiums

Daily Wire, by Emily Zanotti

Original Article

The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for

And the idiot owners just signed up Destroyer Goodell to continue the process of destroying the NFL.

They´re just trying to put people in seats so that it doesn´t look quite so embarrassing on TV. They want that Superbowl revenue, but I don´t think they will be able to keep the ad rates up. If they do, watch for kick-backs!
As far as I´m concerned they have waaay too much money as it is if they can afford to give away 100 million (and we all know it will be more than that) to feed George Soros´ radical, bomb-throwing, Left-wing, Communist causes! These George Soros flying monkeys are doing everything they can to to divide, fracture and destroy the fundamental principles America stands for in the name of “victimhood” and fabricated “racism”! As I said before the NFL ate a Politically Correct torpedo fired from the Left deliberately aimed at destroying everything America stands for and football is as big a target as it gets and now they want to rob it blind.

I won´t be a part of it!

I´m with #3; however, they could get more seats filled if they´d drive down my street in the team bus, picking up passengers. Only one thing makes me wonder (besides parking and food prices in the stadia) all those tax breaks the cities gave the teams or the NFL to build in these cities. Detroit and Chicago are a mess anyway, but why should ´´´MY´´ city suffer?!

After seeing Aaron Andrews interview that one player, with the grill, metal seemingly filling every gap between his teeth, makes one wonder if it´s really worth it to keep supporting the zoo. Editing out the kneeling from the tv production won´t help them, we know the disrespect is continuing. Firing Goodell would be a good way to save the league, considering the way he plays along and kisses their butts but the NFL doesn´t have the guts to save themselves.

The games are unwatchable in person. Incessant prolonged timeouts for television advertising have ruined the pace of the game and, therefore, most of the drama. The producers and directors have spoiled the show and now the actors have found a way to pile on by taking a knee.

Yet. I am greatly encouraged that even at $10.00 a ticket for good seat, the stadium remained, for all intents and purposes, empty. My guess is the real damage from all this will come the next time some team starts lobbying for a new stadium. "Uh, NO!" is going to be a common response. And then they will have to go to their own pockets or the private sector and prove their plans are able to pay back the loans. "Uh, No!" is going be a very popular answer. The NFL probably realizes they have stepped into a massive, stinking cesspool with this "Kneeling BS" and they simply have no idea how to get out of it. So, instead, they will keep on hoping their "Next Season" will be better. It won´t. But, like all liberals, they will stick to their hopeless plan of fantasy. The players will be the first ones to suffer the consequences. Watch for the outrageous howling when the salaries are not there for next season. I think we have seen the last of the 40 million dollar/season quarterbacks.

#4 is right. Ticket prices are a minor thing financially. If sparse crowds decrease TV ad revenue then the league will take notice. When we actually see how ad revenues are affected with real $$$ numbers(maybe they´re published already and haven´t seen them), then we´ll see how badly - or not - they´ve been hurt.

I mentioned this very early when the hooligans started this ´take a knee´ business in the NFL or should I say Planet of the Apes started this downward spiral. People might return when the cost of a ticket is the same as a warm 16oz. beer and a pretzel and that day has arrived. Wait until the ´knee takers´ have to negotiate contracts and they play for Terry Bradshaw wages like 12 grand a year and a bonus for playing in the Super Bowl. It´s over and dead but they just don´t know it yet. Firing Goodell won´t fix it so let him stay just like let Al Franken stay it won´t change a thing. The players own the league, the coaches and owners. I´d rather watch a gang fight on a corner in Chicago for free.

That ticket prices are falling and that stadiums are emptying is not the issue to me. They´re symptoms or results or consequences and that´s all.

For me (and I´m only talking about myself), the knee taking players have every right to take a knee during the national anthem. I´ll gladly go again and get shot at so that they have the freedom to do so, no matter how repugnant it is to me. Conversely, I will NEVER watch or have anything to do with the NFL again; never, period. That´s my right and that´s how I choose to reflect my personal freedom and my personal opinion of the players´ and the NFL´s disrespect for those who provided them the freedom to express their opinions. It´s just that simple, and sad too. Like Rudyard Kipling said, "You bet that Tommy sees."

If the lowered attendance translates to less audience in general, when they come to negotiate contracts, it will bring the players to their knees.

At that point, no one will care.

The NFL believes that running a few commercials using "mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," telling how much they love the military and what members in their family served will get us back. Well good luck with that. Even if the NFL goes back to blacking out home games that are not sold out won´t help. Like #5 said who wants to pay to see thugs who hate whitey play football?

I have been an avid NFL fan for the past 65 years, but watching a bunch of overly pampered multimillionaires spit in my face during the National Anthem led me to cancel my Directv NFL ticket. Unfortunately we have a commissioner who doesn’t even deserve the first dollar of his $40 million dollar contract. I am a Navy vet and do not take it lightly when someone insults our flag. If I were commissioner kneeling on the field during the National Anthem would be prohibited, but these know nothings could kneel in the club house unseen by 50 million fans watching on TV and paying good money to watch.

The NFL is in a death spiral because former fans are holding firm.

The customers are always right.

With his former association with the USFL and the McMahons of WWE, President Trump knows the right people to put together a new, patriotic football league to replace the NFL.

#15 is right. All season long the cameras were trained on the field, no shots of the crowd, or lack thereof. Well suddenly, yesterday, during the Rams Eagles, the cameras were panning a full stadium, non-stop! After every commercial, during timeouts, and after the touchdowns. Nothing but a packed stadium with loyal cheering fans. Even had multiple shots of the stadium from the blimp over the field. Fake football, all staged like a Hillary campaign rally.

There are 2 things I hate about this: First, These protests have sucked all of the joy out of the game for my dad, a 90-year old Army vet. He tried to watch a couple of times after it started and said he just couldn´t do it. Secondly is the glaring double standard of not letting players alter their uniforms for social causes but allowing them to alter their body positioning. One might as well let them raise their arms and shoot everyone a "bird." That´s a pose, too. It may not be what they intend, but that´s how it´s received. Stupid is as stupid does.

President Donald Trump´s occasional unfiltered coarse cloudbursts belie a man who is enormously joyful, having an abundance of entertaining good humor easily expressed, fairly shared. Trump is having a ball, for good reasons.Trump´s first year as president may have been the most extraordinary since the 1840s. While Trump has disrupted almost all presidential governance and communication norms, his tenure so far has produced capital market gains of some $7 trillion, spreading investment wealth to millions of regular Joes and Marys, while tax cuts have already distributed $3 billion in bonuses and wage hikes to over 2 million workers and counting.

As the budget shutdown ended, the White House made good on its promise to consider immigration reform.

How illegal immigrant Dreamers amassed

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

You’ve got to feel for Robert Mueller. The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum. Imagine how Mueller feels, then, to have to answer so frequently for the partisans and incompetents surrounding him. The special counsel’s biggest

Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him. What do you think President Trump

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no

Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI´s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons: 1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple´s messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair. It´s probably safe to say there is not a single

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

New text messages from anti-Trump FBI agents reviewed by investigators reportedly make reference to a "secret society," in what could be the nail in the coffin for special counsel Robert Mueller´s Russia investigation. Investigators have reviewed 50,000 text messages on FBI servers looking for all exchanges between anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page during the 2016 election, Fox News reported. The revelation comes as investigators are seeking the whereabouts of approximately five months´ worth of text messages between Page and Strzok. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News on Monday that one

The mood on the international conference call at the beginning of this month was somber as Ian Bremmer, president of the political risk consulting firm Eurasia Group, prepared to list off top global dangers in the coming year. Bremmer began with a show-stopping line:"If we had to pick one year for a big unexpected crisis — the geopolitical equivalent of the 2008 financial meltdown — it feels like 2018." The reasons are many, Bremmer cited, but the most prominent causes for global insecurity stem from U.S. President Donald Trump´s move away from global leadership, and China´s eagerness to fill the

WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called the government shutdown a “manufactured crisis” created by Democrats who want a permanent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix, which he referred to as a “non-emergency” issue that does not belong in the short-term spending bill to continue federal government operations. “The one non-emergency issue our friends on the other side of the aisle are trying to shoehorn into this discussion doesn’t reach that status of emergency until March. This is pure folly. The American people know so, that´s why in a recent survey a majority said keeping the government open

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

The Senate on Monday was set to hold a successful vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn´t include immigration language they are seeking. "We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years. It would also reopen the government, which has been partially closed since midnight

It has been four months since Megyn Kelly earned the wrath and ire of Jane Fonda for asking the 80-year-old actress about her plastic surgery, and the NBC host is now responding to the backlash. That moment occurred during Kelly´s third episode when she asked the Oscar-winner about what work she had done in the past, which prompted a steely Fonda to stare Kelly down and ask: ´We really want to talk about that now?´ Since then Fonda has complained about the question to a number of outlets, and even mocked Kelly´s question on Today last week during an interview
