Latest NFL Ratings Are In, and TV Execs Are Forced to Make Most Drastic Move Yet

By

There can no longer be any question on where the American public stands regarding the childish and unpatriotic protests by NFL players and officials over the past several months.

The numbers don’t lie, and the numbers have been catastrophic for both the league and for the major television networks that could traditionally count on NFL broadcasts to bring in huge viewership and ad revenues.

But the ratings for NFL broadcasts have gotten so bad as America responds to players kneeling during the National Anthem that TV execs have had to make their most drastic move yet.

Breitbart reports:

Network executives are scrambling to solve the growing problem of crashing ratings for the National Football League, by cutting games to end the perceived “over-saturation” of football on TV.

To put an end to the sliding ratings, the executives are proposing that fewer games may be the ticket to stop that “over-saturation,” with one idea being to cut Thursday Night Football by a whopping ten games.

The idea to trim Thursday Night Football from 18 games a season to only eight was first reported by Sports Business Journal and was part of a plan to reverse the ratings crash that also includes pulling games played in the U.K. back to 1 PM eastern time (6PM London time).

Indeed the amount of football on TV has exploded in the last decade.

Some are trying to play this as a problem of the league and TV execs going overboard with NFL broadcasts.

But the simple truth is that football on TV exploded in the last decade because Americans wanted to watch it! We love the sport!

What we don’t love is whiney millionaires pretending to be activists by disrespecting our great nation. Because, as much as we love football, we love America more.

You want to fix the ratings problem? Stop acting like spoiled brats.
