NFL football TV ratings down after weekend of boycott

The people have made their opinion and stance on the whole situation with the protesting NFL players clear – they are outraged and don’t want to see the overpaid teams protest the primary American values which no true patriot disrespects. And now that the league has kept up their protests, the people started taking action – from burning seasonal tickets, to leaving the stadiums empty and contributing to TV views of the league games being lower than ever before.

Newest details have revealed that the NFL has lost around 2.5 million viewers since its opening weekend.

The league is experiencing an ever-decreasing number of audience, with its fourth week of games having the smallest audience on a weekend shortly after some conservatives called for a boycott as a result of some players using the national anthem to protest against police brutality as well as racial inequality.

According to the Nielsen company’s statement from this Tuesday, while the opening week of the NFL registered 16.3 million views and 15.8 million in its second week, the number quickly fell to 14.8 million in the third week and from there, to the shockingly low 13.8 million from this week. If the numbers keep declining at this rate, things won’t end up great for the league.

Another major factor which contributes to these shockingly low number of views are the major sponsors, most of which have revealed they are outraged of the NFL’s protests and have pulled their ads.
