Do You Feel Sorry For The NFL?
The decline in NFL viewership has gone from a little leak to a busted pipe in just a year. What all that means is real money is being lost. Add in the angry fans who are threatening to avoid watching, and you have a league whose problems apparently are trending extremely negatively.

When you hold up your middle to your core customer base, after a while, they stop feeling appreciated and they will go away. Good job NFL!!!!!

I'm kind of in the all of the above camp here. Well, I'm not sure about corrupt refs (but nothing surprises me anymore).

They are certainly overpaid, the kneeling was a disgrace, and I do believe athleticism is declining.

We've also got the concussion factor which seems like a pretty legit concern. True it has been politicized, but I can understand a parent not wanting their kids to play.

Will we be able to recognize the NFL even 10 years from now even if it still exists?

All good points. Were you a big fan before and now not so much?

For me, foot ball never thrilled me too much. I played in high school. I played to get the attention of a girl. I got my****beat every game. I never got a ll the strategy, etc. So, the downfall of the NFL was no big shakes for me. For e, it was all political, and I was ... livid over the kneeling thing, and how they handled it.

I'm Al Bundy... a good high school player, but topped out at that level :) Since then, I woulndt call myself a hard-core fan. I dont play fantasy leagues and really watch only occasionally, but watch the Superbowl of course. So, if it disappears altogether I wont be heartbroken. But I would hate to see it go if it is the result of a victory of the left.

Hmmm, I'm not sure I would call the death of an industry a 'victory' for anyone; except maybe BLM.

Ooooh! I see what you mean! Yeah, that would suck.

I'm thinkng the bloated salaries are the worst part here. Its that, on top of the kneeling. But if these were regular, hard-working, middle-class people, the reaction might be different. I dont necessarily have an issue with the kneeling. I personally disagree, but it is a form of dissent. I dont think in all cases it is anti-American. But maybe I am giving them too much credit.

I guess I see it less as disrespect and more as a protest. I mean, many protests can be seen as disrespectful if you are on the other side. I think that in this case, the intent matters too. And I dont think the kneelers are intending to be disrespectful, but rather just protesting.

On the other side of what? Respect?
Time and place BoSox. Like, one doesn't invite their Buddies over for brewskies during grandmothers funeral - it's disrespectful.
These men make a lot of money and have a lot of time off to spend it. If they have a beef, why not do something about it - while not working?

I think the kneeling down at the Anthem and the owners allowing it will be their downfall. Although I love to watch Football, I don't care much for the kneeling down thing at all.

I marked all the above. I really hate the 'double standards.' Now we know that it's okay to kneel for the Anthem but players will be fined for wearing "Santa Cleats" or any other thing that might offend a liberal! Nope, no NFL in this house!

These guys make millions and are subsidized by taxpayers. Kneeling and disrespecting the flag, the soldiers and anyone who pays taxes is too much and the people are showing how much they don't like these actions. There's a time and place for protest, sports arenas need to be politics free.

I'm not necessarily against the protests. I disagree but I do see it as a valid protest. But I think you make a good point that sports should be politics free. Sports are simply entertainment. I think many think of it differently because it isnt scripted or pre-defined (corruption aside) But it is still entertainment. Play the damn game and let the fans enjoy it.

I've been to many and have watched many hockey games. When the flag of the US or Canada is on the ice and the anthems have been sung. Everyone on both benches and the players from both teams and the referees remain standing and no skating until the colors have left the ice.

I do not feel sorry for the NFL, Roger Goodell, ESPN or the team owners LOSING money who allowed these politically IGNORANT overpaid athletes making MILLIONS to bring their political beliefs onto the football field by allowing their players to kneel during our country's National Anthem..... in a country that allows them to become MILLIONAIRES for just playing a damn sport to entertain WE THE PEOPLE.
Having said all that, I honestly tried boycotting watching my team play(the Patriots), but my boycott only lasted 1 week of not watching the Patriots play(which was painful to do so that week lol) because I truly love the game of football, especially with Tom Brady being my teams QB since 2001....yeah he's 40 and says he wants to continue to play into his mid 40's.... but at his age being the GOAT, we as Pat's fans never know if THIS game we're watching will be the last game we get to see him he play due to an injury at his age of 40 as our QB.. One has to be a die hard Pat's fan to get what I'm saying lol :)

The NFL has destroyed itself.................... No one knows what a catch is,,,,,,,,, the refs try to decide the game and the players think that we care what they think............... I don't care what some MILLIONAIRE thinks about anything.......... By disrespecting the Anthem............. Yes, they are disrespectful, they have destroyed all the joy of the game that I have had these last 55 years.
