As dumb SOB's continue to kneel during the national anthem - NFL TV ratings tank

Michael McCarthy reports that the NFL's average TV audience through Week 5 of the 2017 season dropped 7 percent vs. the same period of the 2016 season. Worse for the league, the average game audiences are down 18 percent compared to the first five weeks of the 2015 season.


The NFL's average TV audience (including Sunday afternoon, Sunday night, Monday night and Thursday night games) slid to 15.156 million viewers through Week 5 of the 2017 season. That’s down 7.42 percent from an average of 16.371 million viewers through the same period of the 2016 season, and 18 percent down from the average of 18.438 million viewers through the first five weeks of the 2015 season.

The NFL finds itself in a "very volatile and dangerous place," said ESPN Insider Adam Schefter on Thursday's "Mike & Mike" morning show.

"It is very sensitive. It is chipping away at the popularity of the sport," Schefter added. "There are people who are turned off to what’s happening. There are people canceling their DirecTV subscriptions.

"The business of the game, by the way, also affects the players. Because for every dollar that the league is collecting, 48 cents go to the players."

Boycott these NFL sponsors until all of these locker room hanging out sons of bitches are gone.
