The Jets-49ers game this weekend was barely attended. The photos below show a massive number of empty seats at Levi’s Stadium. Is this part of the backlash the NFL has suffered due to the injection of left wing politics by Colin Kaepernick and others?
CBS Sports reported:
LOOK: Levi’s Stadium is depressingly empty for Jets-49ers; ‘Fire Baalke’ banner flown
It’s hard to imagine finding a worse matchup than the Jets-49ers game on Sunday afternoon. San Francisco is on an 11-game losing streak since beating the Rams in Week 1, and the Jets just rolled over and played dead at home on national television against the Colts less than seven days ago.
So, yeah, not a great reason for people to leave the house for several hours and spend tons of money at Levi’s Stadium. Photos of the stands on social media confirm the lack of interest.
This isn’t a new trend either. There weren’t big crowds in October against the Buccaneers, and their last home game against the Patriots was basically a stadium full of New England-clad fans screaming for Tom Brady to throw touchdowns.
It was a pretty embarrassing thing for the 49ers.
