    NFL ratings down 7.5 percent through Week 6

    10/18/2017

    Through the first six weeks of the NFL season, total viewership of games is down 7.5 percent, compared with the first six weeks of 2016, Darren Rovell of ESPN reports.

    An average of 15 million people watched games for the first six weeks this year, compared with 16.2 million people through Week 6 last season, according to metrics from Nielsen.
    An NFL spokesman didn't immediately return a message*seeking comment.

    Last year, the NFL attributed part of its viewership decline during the first nine weeks of the season to competition from presidential election coverage. Viewership was indeed better for the second half of the season, after the election, but it still finished down 8 percent, compared with 2015.

    This season's challenges also include player protests during the national anthem, which have pitted the NFL against President Donald Trump, who again tweeted Wednesday that players should stand to honor the flag.

    I wonder how much that equates to in revenue.. Figure it's a multi billion dollar industry, so I'd guess tens or hundreds of millions.

    I also wonder what it was in 2015 before Kaepernick & co. decided to ruin the sport.

    And attendance is down also:


    Michael McCarthy of the Sporting News reports average overall game audiences are off last year's trends as well.
    *
    "The league's average TV audience through Week 5 of the 2017 season dropped 7 percent*vs. the same period*of*the 2016 season, according to Nielsen data obtained by Sporting News. Worse for the league, the average game audiences are down 18 percent*compared to the first five weeks of the 2015 season.

    They should start the BPFL (black panther football league)

    -Jay Z & Eminem can sing f@ck America before each game
    - Players can protest before, during & after the game
    -Obama as commish
    -Replace the stars & stripes with a sickle & hammer on the back of helmets
    -Pig cop socks are mandatory
    -North Korean style pageantry at halftime
    -No police are allowed in the stadium to protect the 7 persons in attendance
    -CNN & MSNBC can carry the games

    People are sick & tired of the New England f'n Patriots.

    People are sick & tired of the refs being in Kraft's pocket. This past Sunday was as bad as I've ever seen.

    People are sick & tired of the cr@p the league is selling at QB. Loooook!!!! Carr & Stafford are making $25+ million per year they have to be great right? McCown's & Smith's 70%+ completion percentage it's like they want to fool people into believing we're living through some golden age for QB play.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Just wait in a few years when the **** really hits the fan when Brady, Brees, Roethlisberger, Eli, Rivers are all retired or too old to be effective anymore. Rodgers suffered a serious injury this past week so who knows about him?

    They better be pulling some strings behind the scenes to get Andrew Luck out of Indianapolis before they ruin his career. He's one guy who could help carry the league through the upcoming QB dark age.

    A D could work to get a offense in a 3rd and long situation the slightest touch a illegal contact BS call wipes all that out awards a free first down to the offense. It's such BS. It's a unfair competition.

    Kick returns used to be one of the most exciting plays in football now forget it. Even when there is a nice return 99% (feels like it at least) of the time out comes the flag 99% of the time it's the same BS call too

    Illegal block in the back.

    They've ruined the game.

    God could be punishing them for what they did to Tim Tebow.

    That's also possible.

    And God could be punishing them because you call yourself a fan!

    That's equally possible.
