#BoycottNFL is working: Monday Night Football ratings hit season low

NFL blowback

Take that NFL SJWs!

From Deadline: With the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears tied near the end of last night’s Monday Night Football, it looked for sure that the game was going into overtime. Then, even with injured quarterback Sam Bradford put on the field last night, the Vikings took control and won the game 20-17.

That now finds Minnesota 3-2 in the fifth week of the 2017-2018 season. However, even with the much plugged world debut of the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer at halftime, for the NFL and ESPN it was not such a great result in what is clearly a season of ratings hurt and protest controversies surrounding the national anthem – even on a night when the latter was not shown on-air by the league.

Snaring a 7.0 in metered market results, last night’s MNF was down double digits from last week’s Kansas Chiefs’ 29-20 victory over the Washington Redskins. Down 17% in the ratings, that’s actually a regular game season low for the ESPN broadcast game and matches the MM result of the second game of the doubleheader MNF opener on September 11.

That comes a day after Sunday Night Football also hit a season low with its ratings down too.

A sliver of a silver lining can be found for the NFL and ESPN in that last night’s game was up 8% in MM ratings from the Week 5 match-up last year between Tampa and Carolina. With the help of strong ratings from those always well-watched Dallas Cowboys, MNF is holding steady with last year’s hard-hit season with a 5% uptick.

  1. Seems like many people do not have trouble setting their priorities:
    Sports fan
    An American loyal to the Constitution, the Oath, and the Flag

    • MeThePeople . . . you have hit that spot on. I just hope that enough Americans can forgo their love of NFL football to keep the players, their managers, and the league in a position that their feet are to the fire! Unfortunately, I sometimes think we as Americans like our trinkets, our play more than we appreciate all the sacrifice that went into building this Great Nation. Blood was spilled decade after decade by various people going back into the 1700’s. I do not understand why we have a portion of people today who just do not care about their country, or pride, or devotion to those who went before. I sometimes thing I will be glad to go to the other side, perhaps I won’t have to be in the presence of such low lifes. If there is nothing in your life that your reverence . . . I would say you are unfortunately, a waste of bones and skin, and the very breath of life that was blown into you to make you a living sole. You are for all intents and purposes a lost cause.

  2. DAH! Do ya’ think the NFL mis-judged their (largely patriotic, ex-military, conservative, Make-America-Great-Again )audience way back when Kapernick first TOOK HIS KNEE??????? Could have stopped it THEN when he first did it by directing him to their NFL guidelines about standing for the anthem/etc……AND giving him the opportunity to PROTEST ON HIS OWN TIME BUT NOT HIS “ON THE CLOCK” WORKING TIME”……

    TOO FREAKIN’ LATE NOW….I’m NEVER going back to the broadcasts now. I’ve found OTHER, more peaceful, rewarding, “NO BRAINER” alternative broadcasts for my weekends etc….as have done so many other Americans who are fed-up…up to HERE with this crap……when we pay our taxes to support so many who do not work, will never work, have no desire to work or find/train to work….when half the nation is on FOOD STAMPS (I will NOT call it the NEW and IMPROVED, more gentle term…it IS WHAT IT IS)….when we pay premo dollars to attend such games where we are then assaulted and insulted instead of shown JUST the game that we paid for….when we are corraled into a “sanctuary city or state”…which means, BTW…that not only are the “perps” in a “sancturay”….but WE are HOSTAGE in this same sanctuary, where the rule of law does not exist, where we have no rights to even LIFE…where no one will protect us…..where we have no recourse when we are killed or harmed…our government does not..in this interest…exist for us. It is AWOL, even with our “votes” that sent it there into a position to function for/protect us. THAT is, BTW…the ONLY TWO THINGS THAT GOVERNMENTS EST. UPON THIS EARTH BY MEN/WOMEN EXISTS FOR…..and what is going on now, for instance in CA..by GOD…does NOT MEET this benchmark. When “taking a knee” is based upon color and NOT deeds and consequences…..the time for talk passed long ago…like…back in grade school.,…..when history is forgotten—like more than HALF of this country opposed slavery and shed their blood to set it right….and then more than half of this country brought into realization the goals of Civil Rights….I am so INSULTED by the likes of Kapernick, who evidently discounted the MILLIONS of people who were on his “side” in this country before he was even BORN…..and the ones who sacrificed and their families who suffered afterward so that he could even belly up to the bar of million-dollar sports drivel. Yatta Yatta…and so on.

  3. Everyone has the right to protest, why, who knows? It has gotten out of control.
    But to do so while disrespecting our flag, while demanding respect, gains them nothing. Many people have moved on and are happier.
    Many are still watching baseball, so far still as American as hot dogs and apple pie.
    We have moved on the college and high school sports. We refuse to watch such disrespect and dishonoring our flag and military. The very military most of those punks wouldn’t have the guts to serve in.

  5. Not a fan, pretty indifferent.
    Baseball a little, but FB no way.

    All you hear about these guys is negative but they have plenty of excuses.

    How can someone be loyal to a bunch of spoiled brat millionaires when they cannot even be loyal to their own country?
    Answer: I can’t, I refuse.

    But I have grown to really dislike the Jaguars and their Pakistani owner.
    They are idiots, unpatriotic, and they really suck too.

  6. just not watching football is so passive aggressive.

    I never watched anyway, so my ‘boycotting’ isn’t hurting their numbers.
    The MSM are under contract and could care less what I say or think.
    They get the envelopes from guys like ‘Shah”

    It would be worth it if there was someway to actively voice my disgust with the NFL and the anti-Trump sentiment which seems the only thing that unifies them.

  8. The boycott is still working. Last Thursday’s nights game ratings down: Last night’s TNF matches the season low for the CBS and NFL Network-aired September 28 opener, which was down 13% from the year before. As NFL ratings overall have slumped about 8% this season so far, last week’s Week 6 TNF went on to score a total viewership of 14.6 million, which was down 5% from the week before and even with Week 6 of the 2016-2017 season.
