BREAKING: The NFL Announces Major Cancellation

By

Things keep going from bad to worse for the NFL as it continues to fail to convince players to stop their childish protests of the American flag and National Anthem.

With profits spiraling ever downward, the league decided this week to cancel Sunday Night Football for New Year’s Eve.

Via Gateway Pundit:

Since the last Sunday night football game also happens to be the final game of the season, the NFL tries to schedule a game that will definitely have playoff implications for one or both of the teams playing. (A team that already made the playoffs might sit their starters, leading to an exceptionally boring game.)

This season, there were no such games that met the NFL’s criteria on the final week’s schedule. The NFL, which hadn’t yet announced which teams would play Sunday night, would have either scheduled a game that had a chance of being a snooze or a game that already had no playoff implications at all.

Instead, there will be seven games scheduled for 1 p.m. and an unusually high nine games scheduled for 4:25 p.m. kickoffs. There won’t be an 8:30 p.m. game this year.

It’s not that the NFL didn’t want a Sunday Night game this coming weekend.

It’s that they would have lost too much money, and suffered another major blow to the leagues credibility when very few Americans bothered to tune in.
