NFL HELL: Football Stadiums Still Empty into Week 12 as Anthem Protests Continue (PHOTOS)

By  | 

The NFL Boycott is still growing and the stadiums are getting emptier each week, despite historically low ticket prices.

Attendance issues continue to plague the NFL as the kneeling backlash rolls into week 12.

The Cleveland Browns facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium:

Ratings for the National Football League have gotten worse as Week 11 passes in the rear-view, with the league losing one million viewers over the numbers from 2016 as protests during the national anthem continue.

“National anthem before #Titans vs #Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. Plenty of good seats still available,” noted reporter USA Today reporter Jason Wolf.

With a loss of 6.3 percent compared to last week’s loss of 5.7 percent the loss of viewers deepened, the New York Post reported.

The 6.3 percent dip reflects a viewership of 14.9 million viewers, which is down a million from the 15.9 earned in Week 11 last year.

With TV ratings off nearly 20 percent for the season over all, the networks have reportedly lost up to $500 million in ad revenue. The ratings slide is reflected in the sparse attendance at the stadiums, too, with Week 11 photos showing that there are still empty seats galore.

Colin Kaepernick and Co. have broke football and now the boycott is even reaching die-hard fans who actually go to live games, not just declining ratings,

Up until now, because teams have been lowering ticket prices, (49ers tix went as low as the price of two pretzels), stadium attendance was not being visually effected. The unseen bottom dollar was because of declining prices.

But now teams are having a real hard time filling seats, and this last weekend showed us just how bad it was!

Professional football is no longer America’s favorite sport as the NFL loses popularity due to players’ continuing to protest during the National Anthem. After months of ongoing controversy, the devastating impact on the NFL is evident with emerging pictures on social media of stadiums with vacant seats throughout the league.

It is a problem and the NFL owners gathered to try to find a way out of this dilemma. They should have put their foot down with Kaepernick last year. It would have been easy. “Protest all you want, on your own time, not our time-clock.”

But now, it has gotten out of hand, They waited too long. No matter what they do, it will be messy.

But they have to do something. Ratings are at an all-time low and stadiums are empty. Fans are furious and boycotting BIG LEAGUE!

It is real simple. Protest on your own time. These lazy 3-minute antics have not been a real protest anyway. These morons don’t have the intestinal fortitude to go out and really protest. They are too busy living their high lifestyle on the millions of dollars they have received while living the American Dream.

As NFL players continue to dig in, the fans continue to boycott harder and things are now looking very dire for the football franchise!

Each week, the ratings take another significant dive in the ratings and the NFL is in huge financial disaster.

NBCUniversal’s head of advertising, Linda Yaccarino admitted during a keynote interview that anthem protesters have hurt ratings and stated that NBC advertisers are now threatening to pull their ads should NBC continue to cover the anthem protests.

Ratings are continuing to crash and the stands are over half empty.

NBC Sports is off 21 percent from 2015, CBS Sports is down 14 percent compared to 2015, and ESPN’s Monday Night Football has sunk 17 percent over 2015.

Up until now, because teams have been lowering ticket prices, (49er’s tix went as low as the price of two pretzels), stadium attendance was not being visually affected. The unseen bottom dollar was because of declining prices.

But now teams are having a real hard time filling seats!

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wrote a letter to all 32 league owners stating that the protests that have taken place during the national anthem need to stop!

In the letter Goodell wrote that the “current dispute over the National Anthem is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game, and is now dividing us, and our players, from many fans across the country.”

“Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem,” Goodell wrote. “It is an important moment in our game,” Goodell wrote.

Some get the problem and have tried to remedy, but as they do, other moronic players dig in harder.

When will they learn?
