    NFL Ratings Drop Across The Board In Week 3
    http://boston.cbslocal.com/2016/09/2...ard-in-week-3/

    ...Sports Business Daily reported Monday that the overnight ratings for Sunday Night Football between the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears drew 18.62 million viewers and scored a 12.9 in the Neilsen ratings, which is down from 13.7 in Week 2 and 13.9 in Week 3 a year ago. Elsewhere, the early-afternoon regional slate of games on CBS dropped by 18 percent compared to Week 3 last season while FOX’s 4:25 p.m. game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles (which saw Philly win in a surprisingly one-sided affair) dropped by 1 percent from the same time slot last season. The lone bright spot was FOX’s early-afternoon slot, which went up by about 3 percent.

    In less surprising news, the overnight ratings for Monday Night Football paint a bleak picture, too. The game between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints was an absolute barn-burner and a good one for the gamblers and fantasy GMs of the world, but it was going up against the first presidential debate, so a ratings drop was to be expected. MNF scored a 5.7 overnight rating, according to Sports Media Watch, which is about 38 percent lower than last season’s 8.9 in the Week 3 matchup between the Bears and New York Jets.

    ...You could come up with a number of reasons for the drop in ratings. The lack of star quarterbacks, perhaps. Mike Ozanian of Forbes believes it could be the #BoycottNFL movement, which was sparked by Colin Kaepernick and his National Anthem protests. In that case, it would be too bad that those fans missed the Saints and Falcons standing hand-in-hand together in a “circle of unity” after Monday night’s anthem performance.

    But if you ask me, I’ll tell you that the declining ratings are due to a weaker product on the field....

    Thought that MNF would suffer against the debate. But not Sunday night. Marquee matchup traditionally, Bears/Cowboys. Sure, both teams aren't particularly good this year but they tend to draw eyeballs because of the fan bases.

    And look, I still watch the NFL. Far more a fan of baseball, golf, college football & college basketball. But still, bread & circuses is what entertains the masses. According to the elite.

    A little update...



    Patriots Fan Stands On Kaepernick Jersey During The National Anthem; Colts’ Cromartie Brings NFL Social Justice To The UK

    http://www.weaselzippers.us/298910-p...ice-to-the-uk/

    A Patriots fan stepped on a Colin Kaepernick jersey during the national anthem Sunday.

    The man was pictured standing on the t-shirt during a game between New England and the Buffalo Bills in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

    Kaepernick on Sunday played with the San Francisco 49ers against the Dallas Cowboys in Santa Clara, California.

    He knelt during the Star-Spangled Banner, as he has done for the past month as a protest against the oppression of black people and minorities in the United States.[…]

    The protest spread abroad on Sunday as Indianapolis Colts cornerback Antonio Cromartie knelt during the national anthem in London, United Kingdom.

    The Colts played against the Jacksonville Jaguars at the Wembley stadium, where the Jaguars have an agreement to play at least two games per season until 2020.

    Jacksonville beat Indianapolis 30-27 on Sunday.

    Antonio Chromartie. There is a model American. 12 children with 8 different women and he isn't exactly on time with his support payments. Yeah, he's one to be looked up to. Oh, BTW, the Colts just cut him.

    More time for him to spread his seed further.
