National anthem protests top reason NFL viewers tuned out

A new survey released by J.D. Power shows anthem protests were the top reason that NFL fans watched fewer games last season.



From ESPN

The pollster said it asked more than 9,200 people who attended either one football, basketball or hockey game whether they tuned into fewer games and why. Twenty-six percent of those who watched fewer games last season said that national anthem protests, some of which were led by Colin Kaepernick, were the reason.

Re: National anthem protests top reason NFL viewers tuned out

People were so upset by a person kneeling during the national anthem that they stopped watching football? That's fucking awesome.

Re: National anthem protests top reason NFL viewers tuned out

IF the survey was disproportionately done in cities where the protests were high profile, I could believe that result. Of course, I would also believe the people lied to the pollsters.

For what it's worth, I find the kneeling less disrespectful than the whooping and hollaring many players do before the National Anthem is complete.

Well, 3.12% of that group says so, anyway.

Only 12% of those polled said they watched fewer NFL games. 26% of that group supposedly reduced/altogether stopped watching football as a result, and 26% of 12% is 3.12%.

Racists don't like it when black people express political opinions, story at eleven.

Re: National anthem protests top reason NFL viewers tuned out

I figured people stopped watching because so many players are dying of CTE. BUT instead it's something ridiculous like this.

Do children still have to stand and sing to the anthem in elementary school in their classrooms? If I knew anything about the law was when I child, my fat ass would have stay sited.

Re: National anthem protests top reason NFL viewers tuned out

Rovell is murdering his credibility with that clickbait headline.

26% of those who watched fewer games said so because of the anthem...............however the survey also said only 12% were watching fewer games. 26% of 12% means in actuality it caused a 3% hitjob on ratings.

Hey, that is 3% of 9200 responders or 276 people who cared about Kap's protest enough to watch some degree of less football. Totally worthy of an entire new thread and lots of think-piece articles.

Besides football, I also stopped watching porn as there was too much kneeling.

Post bullshit memes and you silence the opposition without having to factually back up your ignorant statements.

Re: National anthem protests top reason NFL viewers tuned out

I wonder how many of those same folks were outraged at what happened to Philando Castile?
