If only the players used their platform in a way you deem wholesome and entertaining. We elected a reality show host and real estate sheister to hear his opinion 24/7.

I will not watch. Football is meant to entertain and politics is not, even though I find one particular party hilarious. Politcs and entertainment for myself shall not be mixed. I watcht or listen to sports to relieve myself of stress not to add to it with this political nonsense. BLM stands for Billions Lost or Miissing. This just shows some people like to eat while taking a shit.

The only way NFL rating's might go up is because the lack of people at the games. Those homers have to watch it somehow.
The salary cap is going down because of COVID, as in, attendance at games will be minuscule and team revenues will drop accordingly. Nothing to do with the anthem protests. Prior to COVID the salary
cap was projected to be a record high for 2020

Just because you donít want to watch the NFL doesnít mean thatís true for everyone.

Take a look at the ratings for the first game once theyíre released.

Most fans donít give two damns about the political stuff at the games they just want to watch football.

Any one of his kids are better qualified than do nothing Biden. Look up the definition of false narrative sometime - and quit drinking the kool aid. Activist press is conning you, do some research.

How much payola did Hunter get?

:You people have zero effect on the NFL, watch it or don't it will continue to make billions. Just like your attempts at boycotting nike and yeti, and I am sure I forgot another dozen or so companies.
As a matter of fact please let me know the next company or product that will be boycotted, so I can buy some stock. Thanks in advance.

People need to stop acting like theyíre some kind of circus animals only here for your entertainment.
That is exactly why they are there.

A pathetic attempt at a reply and not dissimilar to your other comments. I surmise from your political attacks that you are nothing but a sanctimonious ideologue that simply repeats made up political propaganda. Your comments and correlations are disjointed and nonsensical and it is clear you lack critical thinking skills. But hey, it's people that think like you that are in charge of these failed burning cities.

Keep up the good work and buckle up for another 4 prosperous years!

On the eve of 9/11, the NFL and NBC, no mention of the fact that 12 hours later, 19 years ago, 4,000 Americans will lose their lives. Instead I have to have a political narrative shoved down my throat when I just want to watch football.

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.

You clearly have TDS. Get over it, it's going to be another long 4 years for you.

Wasn't this thread about football?

Interesting reading this thread.
A lot of responses (on both sides of this issue) seem to be looking for a fight with somebody that feels differently.

The year after Kapernick was exposed as not being good enough to play in the NFL, I quit watching. Not because I thought it would show up on the map, but because I could no longer get what I wanted from football on TV: Football. I didn't tune in to hear political discussion or discussion of social issues, I wanted to see a football game.

Taking a season off really showed me how much time I spent watching other people play.

More power to you if you still watch, but I am done.

this again?

I think there are more 'i'm not watching sports' threads than Covid threads now.

Explained to my kids that having another persons political and social beliefs forced on me while trying to watch sports is wrong. Lousy situation as the fantasy football stuff is what keeps my sons and their buddies hanging with Dad. Frustrating.
