FAIL: NFL ratings for its Eagles v Falcons season opener lowest in a decade

Did not watch one second of the idiots playing football Thursday night in the NFL's 2018 season opener of Eagles v Falcons. Listen to sports talk hosts say, 'Yeah, you say you're not watching but you're going to watch' for a third straight year and for a third straight year they sound like idiots because, alas, you did not watch TNF either.

Ratings for the NFL’s season opener on Thursday night fell 8 percent from last year’s opener — to their lowest level in a decade.

The decline came even after the TV audience for last year’s opener declined 19 percent from 2016’s opener, statistics out Friday revealed.

The “Thursday Night Football” telecast on NBC, delayed 45 minutes due to severe weather in the Philadelphia area, averaged a 13.4 overnight rating.

That made it the lowest season opener in 10 years, according to Sports Media Watch — and breathed new life into fears about the NFL being unable to extricate itself from a structural decline.

Screw the kneeling SOBs of the NFL and screw Nike. Boycott these NFL sponsors until it cleans up its flag act (NIKE...)
