Following the NFL players’ disrespectful protests during the national anthem, it is no secret that people have started to express their outrage with the team owners and the overall league. At first, there was the shocking sight of a half-empty stadium which was a good enough sign that the people grew tired of seeing the players protest, but since that failed to send a message to the league to do something about the matter, the people have now also started to burn season tickets and avoid watching the games on TV, resulting in overall ratings lower than ever before.
But the bad news for the league didn’t stop there, as most recent details revealed by online ticket reseller TickPick stated that their sales have dropped by 17.9% which is far more than the usual Week Three fall.
This came as a shock to many people, as it is one of the highest reported downfalls of ticket sales, with last year’s drop being only 10.8% in orders on Monday and Tuesday, following the games of Week Three.
In fact, the issue was so startling, that TickPick’s Jack Slingland went on to publicly state how, “We have seen a massive decrease in NFL ticket purchases this past week in comparison to years past. Week 3 seems to usually have less ticket orders than week 2, but this year ticket purchases are down more than 7 percent from this time last year.”
This should be enough to serve as a wake up call for the protesters to stand up during the nation anthem, but we can only hope for the best for now.
