Failing CBS' Will Brinson could not be a bigger NFL shill

Wow. CBS' Will Brinson actually wrote the following:

The NFL's ratings are probably down a tic or so this season overall, because it's 2017 and everyone's ratings are down. There are more options for everyone, so some people do not spend as much time watching sports. Don't listen to your weird Uncle Steve over Christmas lunch: The ratings are not down because of protests.

Got that? A 'tic' and 'everyone's ratings are down.'

Eben Novy-Williams reports: "The National Basketball Association’s annual Christmas games delivered some of their most successful overnight ratings in recent history. The league’s five games Monday, spread across ESPN, ABC and TNT, averaged a 3.35 overnight rating, up about 20 percent from last year’s Christmas games." Adding, "The prime-time NFL game on ESPN, a showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and Oakland Raiders, drew a 6.7 overnight rating, down about 9 percent compared with the average Monday Night Football game this year."

The ratings overall for this NFL's season are down 9% from last year. And last year's ratings were down big time from 2015's. Nielsen reported that the NFL is averaging 15 million viewers per game in 2017. That's down from 16.6 million in 2016. PER GAME.

Yeah Will - tic this.

And don't forget -- Boycott NFL sponsor Chunky Maxx until it cleans up its flag act.
