  1. Sorry pal, other sites say otherwise:
  2. But, but, it has nothing to do with the protests. Nothing I tell ya, nothing!!! (Even though it is Veterans Day and this happened in Chicago of all places)
  3. ESPN Considers DROPPING ‘Monday Night Football’

    The NFL has much low hanging fruit to play with. Getting rid of MNF for a year or two would probably be good for the league. I could only imagine the hype if it were to be re-introduced a couple of years down the line. TNF needs to take a permanent hiatus. For that matter, cut down SNF the way TNF used to be - 8 games a year, and ratings will skyrocket. The anthem protests combined with overexposure is the perfect storm, and something needs to be done.
  4. You would think that maybe the Browns would just suck it up and use their number 1 on a top rated QB coming out of college? You would think . . .
  5. No it's not. The reason why it's a story is you have super sensitive athletes combined with an activist media looking to stir things up.
  6. I think the one positive out of all of this is that the owners have delayed giving Goodell an extension. Who knows, if this trend continues, maybe they fire him once and for all.
  7. Fox News Poll: Positive views of NFL down 18 points since 2013 The National Football League is taking some hits these days. A new Fox News Poll finds that since 2013, the league’s favorable rating has dropped 18 points. Today, 46 percent of voters have a positive view of the N.F.L. while 41 percent view it negatively. Four years ago (the last time the question was asked), 64 percent had a positive view of the league and 19 percent were critical. READ THE FULL POLL RESULTS. "If the NFL were a political candidate, alarm bells would be going off in campaign headquarters,” says Democratic Pollster Chris Anderson who conducts the Fox News Poll with Republican Pollster Daron Shaw. The downward shift on favorability comes mainly from Republicans (-37 points), whites (-23 points), men (-23 points), and independents (-14 points). Majorities of Democrats and nonwhites continue to have a favorable view of the N.F.L, yet there’s also a drop in favorability among these groups. Positive sentiment among Democrats is down 6 points (66 percent in 2013 to 60 percent now) while among nonwhites it is down 3 (64-61 percent). N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell made clear in an October 10 letter to team executives that the league thinks "everyone should stand for the National Anthem.” Americans, however, are increasingly more likely to think kneeling is an appropriate form of protest. Forty-four percent think kneeling during the national anthem is appropriate, up from 41 percent who felt that way last month and 32 percent who said so last September. Sill, a majority thinks it is inappropriate (52 percent). Most Republicans (88 percent inappropriate vs. 12 percent appropriate), baby boomers (61-33 percent), men (60-37 percent), and whites (60-38 percent) think kneeling during the national anthem is inappropriate. The opposite is true for Democrats (67 percent appropriate vs. 27 percent inappropriate), millennials (65-32 percent), and nonwhites (61-30 percent) who think kneeling is an apt form of protest. Women (50 percent appropriate vs. 45 percent inappropriate) and independents (46-50 percent) are more divided on the issue. Voters who have an unfavorable opinion of the N.F.L overwhelmingly think kneeling is inappropriate (78 percent), while those who view the NFL favorably think it’s appropriate (62 percent). The Fox News poll is based on landline and cellphone interviews with 1,005 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from October 22-24, 2017. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters.
  8. Yet many still choose to live in denial. Somehow I get the feeling that ratings are not down because of Kaep's continuing unemployment. Sporting News
  9. Evidence needs to be produced in order to be persuasive.
  10. You guys need to learn the fine art of empathy - meaning that you need to put yourself in the shoes of persons who have viewpoints that you disagree with and try to think like them. And as for 2012, not sure what you speak of. From what I saw online, nothing remarkable one way or another about attendance during that year.
  11. Yah, facts staring you in the face are an agenda. The bullheadedness of people is unbelievable.
  12. Yah, protests have nothing to do w it. Nothing.
  13. You can play with the stats all you like, the attendance is down this year, and it is palpable.
  14. Several Stadiums Near Empty this Week
  15. Name A Team We Can't Beat

    OP raises the wrong question. The worst team in the league can beat the best team on any given Sunday. Better question is which team presents to biggest threat or roadblock to the Eagles. I'd go with Seattle for that.
