Anti-American Anthem Protests Have Caused Thousands Of Viewers To Tune Out Pro Football

The NFL has lost a massive amount of viewers over the last year. The reason is that people are sick and tired of the anti-American displays by Colin Kaepernick and others.

Anti-American Anthem Protests Top Reasons Why Football Fans Tuned Out

A recent poll of lapsed football fans has revealed that the string of anti-American national anthem protests topped the list of reasons they stopped watching the NFL last year.

J.D. Power surveyed over 9,200 football fans who attended at least one football, basketball, or hockey game and asked whether they watched fewer games last year and why, ESPN reported.

Twenty-six percent of the respondents said that they stopped watching sports, citing the anti-American protests started last year by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The next highest number, 24 percent, said they stopped watching because of the record of problems with domestic violence seen in several of America’s pro sports leagues.

Another 16 percent said their attention was diverted by the political scene and the 2016 elections.

A small five percent said they stopped watching sports because they canceled their cable subscription.

The poll fits well with reports earlier this year that the NFL’s ratings never recovered once Kaepernick began his protests that spread across the NFL and beyond.

If the NFL had any sense they would have stopped this stuff right away. Now it may be too late.
