Thankfully, the whole league is now kneeling to show solidarity and unity with this type of thing. Good times.

According to the things I read this morning rating are up this year and up big this week. I guess all of us that refused to watch didnt have any impact......

There sure are a lot of ****** of people all across facebook saying they are boycotting for the rating to have gone up.

Is it possible Trump haters tuned in to see it that would normally not watch?

I saw that ratings dropped immediately after the National Anthem. Everybody tuned in to see what the teams were going to do and then turned it off.

This I believe. I was wondering if they monitored it throughout the broadcast of just at the beginning. I cant imagine the NFL isnt going to see a drop in ratings until this crap is gone from the game. Im not watching that is for sure. Too many other things to do. I dont approve of what they are doing, nor do I give any credence to the issue they are protesting. There are much bigger issues plaguing the minority community. Whitey isnt near the top of the list. On top of that, I dont like my sports mixed with politics.

Knowing what and knowing why are two entirely different things. You gotta remember, many of these scumbags can't even read or write even though they went to college. I doubt seriously if any can describe in any coherent detail why even with the most liberal use of ebonics.

the NFL is actually turning alot of the youth away from football. the NFL's days are numbered. i think that the NFL will be much smaller in the years to come. they are losing a huge following

You have to read through the spin. They are telling us ratings are up which in a general sense is false. They are using Monday night football ratings and saying how far up they are compared to the other nights. So basically saying that the D student looks good (Monday night football) because every other night is an F. Overall they are way down, way down. The class has 3 kids in it and one isn't failing as bad as the rest so "ratings" are up lol.

I'm afraid that the ones that actually boycott forever will be few... This will blow over and it will be business as usual.. As for me and my house we are done forever..
I was getting tired of all of the drama anyway.. This was the the final straw..

Honey, we tolerated years of NFL scandals...rapes, murders, dwi's, dog fighting and the Oilers blowing a massive lead against Buffalo that time, but this National Anthem thing is the final straw. Forever. I have my morals and I won't stand for it. Pull the plug!!!!
