NFL ratings plummet in Chiefs-
Texans season opener

Original Article

The NFL is back. Spread the word. Thursday night’s season-opening matchup between the Chiefs and Texans attracted 19.3 million viewers between 8 and 11 p.m. That marks a 12.3% drop from last year’s ratings, which ended with an audience of 22 million. Deadline noted that the key 18-49 demographic pulled in a 5.2 rating, falling from last year’s 12.8 mark. It is likely that multiple factors played into the drop, including social justice messages, which have been present, while audience sizes have reduced across all sports in recent months. An uncompetitive game—a 34-20 Chiefs win, during which they led

I didn't watch one second of that NFL game. When I heard what the NFL had planned and what the end zones were going to have printed in them, that's all I needed to decide not to watch. I also understand that the fans who were there also didn't take too kindly to overt racism BS, and booed when the NFL tried ramming this crap down their throats. Hopefully this is a wake up call not only to the spoiled players, but the NFL officials. Keep this crap off the field.

The NFL lost many fans when they allowed their audience to be hijacked by Social Justice Warriors. Players have a First Amendment right to peacefully protest; they have NO right to do so in a stadium full of people who paid to watch football. Any player could have rented the stadium on some other day and invited people to watch them protest but I doubt that they would fill many seats. The same goes for fans who watch football on some form of media. The players are paid to attract fans and viewers. They are NOT paid to voice their political beliefs. By not following football, ticket buyers and media viewers are showing their disgust with the players and the NFL for allowing the players to act like petulant children. They may never regain their fan base.

Howie skimmed over "social justice messages" pretty quickly; he certainly didn't want to dwell on that but instead focused on other games being played etc. He can't accept the fact that people watch sports to be entertained for a few hours. They don't want to be hammered with political messaging. That's predominantly the reason ratings are crashing IMO.

Maybe they will learn from this that their actions have consequences. Protest on your own time and give us back our escape from the rotten things going on in the world. Keep telling half of your audience that they're good-for-nothing racists who must repent and you will lose more viewers. Keep putting the names of thugs and criminals on your helmets and you will continue to look like fools.

We didn't watch one second of the show, either. What i heard was when the teams held hands for "equality", i had to laugh. Every single one of those men on the field is making more money and has more opportunities than the vast majority of Americans. It's a farce. The bad behavior, the unpatriotic or disrespectful behavior ought to have been soundly nipped in the bud. Keep your protests off the field, out of the workplace, out of the classroom, out of the lecture halls and auditoria, unless you have an invitation to present your views.

I recall when they came up with the name "The Houston Texans" and I thought they must have had a contest for that. Actually LMAO they did. I have lived in a minor state of embarrassment for years until we came up with The Washington Football Team. Thanx guys. Pretty slick. Now stop telling me I'm a racist (systemically) . Stop telling me that when a criminal gets shot it is a national emergency. Go to your local middle school football field and play. See if your parents show up to watch the game because frankly I have better things to do on Monday night like re-arrange my sock drawer.

They have another problem in that the fans they drive away will learn that they can do without the NFL. Actually, all the breaks for endless commercials were driving me away befoe all this kneeling foolishness. That was just the icing on the cake. Now, with the ability to record the games then speed by the commercials may wake up the advertisers when they catch on that they are not getting the eyeballs they pay big money for. This will be a major factor in the years to come and I can see them negotiating for lower commercial rates.

Booing is the least we can do. Let's financially RUIN them. There are plenty of men who would love to play the game and get rich doing it. Let others achieve the American dream. The current players have had their chance and got to egotistical. The game is NOT all about THEM. Let them protest outside the game. I don't care what they do then.

Once the NFL swung into politics to mollify their Black players, common sense would tell them that they are going to take a big hit as far as attending and watching fans go. Most Americans do not want to pay big money to sit in a cold stadium, or be bound to watch partisan political protests on TV, especially when they are connected to rioting, arson, assault, looting, the murdering of people and the general destruction of law and order. When most people go to a football game they expect a good diversion from the tough elements of everyday life and not an attempt to indoctrinate them into radical politics. The people who own and operate the NFL should know that by now.

#11, may I take it that you and your dad were Packers fans? If so I imagine you were jubilant when Starr pulled off that quarterback sneak. I was a teenager then, an intense Cowboy fan, and slinked away from the living room couch broken hearted. My point being - we older guys remember when it seemed worthwhile to CARE about that stuff. But the SJW's and spineless managements have turned the lights off- the party's over. (You HAVE to credit Don Meredith for that, if nothing else:-))

People or fans still watching the game are no different than those players who take the knee, raise the fist or do the lockers. They're all in the same infested gutter by attendance and association. You're either for them or for true American value. There's no in-between on this one.

The NFL has disclosed their list of approved names that they will allow players to wear on their helmet bumpers for social justice messaging. Among the names are Jacob Blake, who is accused of sexual assault. The list is apparently fluid, in the sense that new names are being added all the time. Also among the names is that of slain retired St. Louis police officer David Dorn. Dorn was killed in early June by rioters while checking on a friend’s store in St. Louis. The listing of Blake’s name, given his alleged violent history of sexual assault, stands in stark contrast

Why Biden Will Withdraw From the Debates 57 replies

William Shakespeare famously observed that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” One of these players, Joe Biden, is currently trying out for the biggest role of his life. Unfortunately, he’s in danger of bombing the audition. He’s flubbing lines, breaking character, and occasionally forgetting the plot. His rambling, often incoherent speech in front of a supportive audience at a church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on September 3 shows that he’s no longer playing the role of viable presidential candidate. Instead, he’s stumbled into the last scene of Shakespeare’s “strange, eventful history” — “second childishness and mere oblivion.”
