Why ESPN, the NFL, and MSM are Experiencing Ratings Declines

The NFL experienced a rare “first” last night:

Major League Baseball’s World Series beat the NFL in the ratings.

Wonder why?

Here’s an example:

Roger Goodell might ignore this.

The fans are not.

Mr. Goodell has been promoting political correctness, ruining innocent touchdown celebrations with penalties, and imposing a Democrat-Leftist agenda on non just the fans, but the networks which broadcast their product. The result?

Check it out yourself via The Sporting News:

Shock poll: A third of NFL TV viewers boycotting games because of Colin Kaepernick-led protests

Excerpt:

Nearly one-third (32 percent) of adults say they’re less likely to watch NFL game telecasts because of the Kaepernick-led player protests against racial injustice, according to Rasmussen’s telephone/online survey of 1,000 American adults conducted Oct. 2-3.

Only 13 percent said they were more likely to watch an NFL game because of continuing protests by Kaepernick and supporters such as Antonio Cromartie of the Colts (who was cut only two days after raising a fist during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” in London on Sunday).

More than half (52 percent) say the protests have no impact on their decision to watch NFL games on NBC, Fox, CBS, ESPN and NFL Network this season.

This is not the only reasons behind the decline in viewership, not just in NFL games, but in the mainstream media as a whole.

The NFL product is diluted, pathetic, and protected. Quarterbacks, though injuries are up this year, are given more protection based on their political and geographic leanings? Don’t believe me?

Hit Tom Brady and let me know how many flags fly.

Hit Josh McKown in Cleveland and if a penalty flag flies, it’s because it was a drunk referee disobeying the now apparently rigged NFL game. The pathetic display by the refs in the past 3 years of selective penalty calling, displays of enhancing the “No Fun League” moniker, and an ongoing refusal by the NFL to hire full time professional referees (trust me, I could have become one but who wants to spend a Sunday afternoon in 90 degree heat running up and down the sidelines as a secondary referee) has resulted in not only a diluted product, but one which appears to have a massive bias against visual reality.

So why are the ratings going into the crapper?

Someone doesn’t kneel before the National Anthem? A whopping 40%+ do not care.

A league which shoves politically correct bullshit down your throat along with ESPN, NBC, etc. proclaiming that they know how to tell you what to care about and behave?

Yeah, F*** you.

America is done with this.

America is done with Disney’s propaganda programming on ESPN.

America is done with Roger Goodell turning a great product into a wussified politically correct steaming pile of shit.

And most of all, America is sick and tired of the MSM’s lies, propaganda, and decidedly obvious anti-male, anti-American perspective on sprots.

Screw you NFL. Screw you MSM. Wonder why Trump has an audience? Wonder why the NHL has an audience? Wonder why College Football has fans?

It’s not filled with politically correct (other than Notre Dame) sissified wimps who bow down the leftist agenda.

Keep it up Goodell you loser.

The NFL will become the World Football League except not as entertaining because there are no strippers or porn stars performing at half time.

It will take a meeting of the owners finding the guts to say the following to Roger “I’m a Clintonista Bitch” Goodell to save this league now:

“You’re fired.”

    Goodell made his bed, now he can sleep in it. Our family is voting with our feet and our dollars.

  • Borchardt

    The NFL is rapidly going the way of the NBA, for most of the same reasons.
