Ignore it and enjoy, after the year we have had they can march, protest, due whatever they want. I just want to watch sports.

Screw the NFL. Longmire reruns are much, much better.

I live in Chiefs territory and have always been a loyal fan. Been to many games. Have Chiefs hats and some sweatshirts. Tonight, I was watching until they showed a player kneeling during the National Anthem. They lost me. I will not support them if they can't find it within themselves to respect everything that Anthem stands for and the sacrifices made to make this country what it is.
Watching Perry Mason.

Only reason it’s on in my house tonight is because my son is here and wants to watch it.
Not missing it at all.

I'm watching reruns of Laverne and Shirley. Sat out the season last year and going to do it again this year. Once I saw the tape on Breese helmet, I couldn't do it this year.

Did it the easy way. Tuned in about half way through the first quarter.

I knew they would muck it up with politics.

Hard to watch for the entertainment when they push their political agenda on everyone. Entertainment and politics are generally complete opposites.

I am not watching. Currently watching a You Tube vide of some guys riding adventure bike across Australia. I don’t think I will ever go back to watching football

So none of you are planning on voting for the guy who has spent the last 4 years disparaging the military, generals, POWs, federal law enforcement, and Gold Star families? Good. I havenít heard a football player call a deceased vet a loser yet. Itís amazing that people think athletes arenít allowed to speak out or have an opinion, but believe their personal opinion is worthy. What makes you special? Why is, for example, Laura Ingraham super qualified to have an opinion but an athlete is not? What did she do to tell others stay in their lane? It doesnít appear she has any special level of citizenship or expertise. And that goes for all the talking heads. You may not agree with peaceful protest, and Iím not personally taking knees, but it is a Constitutional right we fought and flew the flag for.

This season is forecast to have the highest ratings in NFL history. Iím not picking a side but Iím not sure why you think viewership is going to drop. Particularly with COVID.

You havenít heard your president call a deceased vet a loser either. As to the talking heads, they are paid to give their opinions. Athletes are not. Maybe these athletes have earnestly studied history to arrive at an informed conclusion about whatever it is they are whining about, but my guess is the amount who have not done so matches the survival rate of the coronahoax, i.e. 99.7% have not.
