The racist and childish behavior of the sniveling millionaire crybabies kneeling or sitting on their rich asses during the national anthem is starting to cost the league paying them where it hurts the most, in the pocketbook.
Ratings for Sunday Night Football showed a significant drop yesterday of about 10%, which I predict will snowball until (if and when) the crybabies get off their knees like cheap whores and stand up like real men.
I put the entire mess on the team owners, who should have nipped this disgrace in the bud a long time ago. The players are young morons. They know no better. The owners are supposed to be savvy, experienced marketers and businessmen, if nothing more. They are certainly not patriots. If for no other reason than the bottom line, they should have seen this train wreck coming a year ago, but it appears they are just as stupid as the millionaire crybabies they are pampering. May you all be selling cars for a living this time next year. I’ll stick to college football.

The ongoing political protests surrounding some players’ decision to take a knee during the national anthem didn’t help the NFL’s “Sunday Night Football” ratings.
Viewership for the primetime game between the Washington Redskins and the Oakland Raiders was down on NBC by 11 percent from the same night one year ago and 9 percent from the previous week, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The media outlet reports the game averaged an 11.6 household rating. Fox saw a 16 percent decrease in ratings for the NFL afternoon game, according to Forbes.
However, ratings for CBS were up 4 percent from last year’s Week 3 coverage, according to a CBS Sports press release.
The less-than-stellar ratings came after President Trump slammed the NFL during a rally in Alabama on Friday, saying players who protest the national anthem should be fired.
Possibly taking away viewers from NBC’s “SNF” WAS CBS’ 50th anniversary season premiere of “60 Minutes” with Oprah Winfrey and the only broadcast of the new “Star Trek Discovery.”
