After Another NFL Player Disgraced Anthem Last Night, League Owners Get Brutal News


It started with Colin Kaepernick and the snowball of controversy has just gathered up momentum from there with more and more players kneeling during the Star-Spangled Banner.

Thursday night, the New England Patriots faced off against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Patriots are so strong that they’re heavy favorites to win the Super Bowl again this year.

The game got a rating of 14.6. That’s the lowest NFL season-opening game than 2009, when the Pittsburgh Steelers played the Tennessee Titans and got a 25 share.

A possible reason for these awful ratings apart from the controversy around Kaepernick and kneeling players is that TV was very focused on the advance of Hurricane Irma which is expected to hit Florida tomorrow.

Having said that, the NFL has seen a steady downward trend of its ratings since last year.
