Open Letter To The NFL PLAYERS. The Boycott is coming.

 Image may contain: 2 people, crowd, shoes and outdoor

You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle. You grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Your mother was the leader of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and food on your plate.
 

Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were mediocre at best. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football. Your best friend was just like you, except he didn’t play football. Instead of going to football practice after school, he went to work at McDonald’s for minimum wage.

You were recruited by all the big colleges and spent every weekend of your senior year making visits to universities where coaches and boosters tried to convince you their school was best. They laid out the red carpet for you. Your best friend worked double shifts at Mickey D’s. College was not an option for him. On the day you signed with Big State University, your best friend signed paperwork with his Army recruiter. You went to summer workouts. He went to basic training.

Just Looking and it seems a lot of NFL fans are just not really Into Being Woke.

TV Land

In the latest TV ratings, NBC’s Sunday Night Football Sunday opener averaged 15.2 million total viewers per Nielsen fast nationals, which do not account for viewership in the Los Angeles Rams’ home market and other West Coast markets. But pending eventual adjustment in this afternoon’s Nielsen finals, that audience is starting out at 21 percent below the Patriots’ historic, year-ago 33-3 skunking of the Steelers.

Bears’ Chicago-area TV ratings for Week 1 victory over Lions are down 32% from 2019 opening prime-time loss to Packers

Weak 1: Monday Night Football Ratings Crash by over 20% Amid Social Justice Protests

The ratings for ESPN’s Monday Night Football are in, and they are not going to make the folks in Bristol very happy at all.

Against the backdrop of large-scale social justice demonstrations that included Black Lives Matter t-shirts, a giant social justice banner, an entire team standing for the “black national anthem,” and at least 20 players kneeling in protest during the actual national anthem, the Steelers-Giants MNF contest saw a 27% drop from last year.

The second game of the Monday Night Football double-header, saw another notable drop of 2.5 million viewers from last year’s mark.

These numbers are bad, needless to say. However, the full context of how bad they are can’t be appreciated until you factor in two notable variables that have been included in this year’s rating formula which should be helping the NFL, but aren’t.:snip:
