    If you have a problem with my position defend your position. These stupid gotcha games are beneath me and I won't engage

    It is clear from what I wrote that I meant Trumps involvement which has magnified the issue 10X. As i have stated I support the players and their right to free speech.
    Yes: You are a true Jock supporter.

    Trump, ever the savvy marketer, does. In the aftermath of Trump’s comments, as his approval numbers rose (particularly among his base), the NFL’s numbers went down.

    League numbers-crunchers combed through the data and discovered that despite some ratings improvements in recent weeks, game viewership is still way off compared to last year. Even worse, I am told, the league believes the social-media boycott by NFL viewers, angered by the disrespect they feel was not only directed at the flag and anthem but tacitly approved by the league, has the potential to grow exponentially if the NFL doesn’t make this issue go away.

    As one NFL marketing executive told me: “All the data show that football fans are tired of being inundated with politics in a place they would like a reprieve from politics.”

    Trump knew all this intuitively weeks before the NFL genius quants had any idea what was going on, and he outwitted some of the smartest people in the business.

    He couldn’t have done this, though, without Roger Goodell, a good businessman with a PC blind spot. Example: The Dallas Cowboys wanted to honor five cops who were killed by a racist madman with decals on their uniforms. The NFL said no — it violated a decal policy.

    The whole thing is a farce meant to distract from the even bigger farce that is Trumps presidency. He is a canny media manipulator i will give him that
    Damn him, trying to prop up his country like that against your wishes.

    I couldn't decide where to put this because there are so many threads on this kneeling issue. Apparently, Goodell is speaking out about issues. And, all he kept saying was issues, issues, issues without explanation. Well, shouldn't we have an issue that he makes 40 mil a year? Just asking.

    Sliding NFL ratings could deliver hit to TV networks


    The NFL's declining TV ratings, blamed by some on the national anthem controversy, could soon take a financial toll on the broadcasters that have spent tens of billions dollars for the right to air pro football, investment analysts say.

    Through the first five weeks of the season, ratings for the Sunday night game on 21st Century Fox's (FOXA) Fox Sports have slumped 7 percent from a year ago. NFL viewership at CBS (CBS), the parent company of CBSNews.com, has plunged 17 percent for Sunday match-ups and 8 percent on Thursday. The audience for "Football Night in America," which is shown Sundays on Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC, is down 7 percent, while the network's Thursday night football broadcast is off 16.3 percent.

    ESPN's "Monday Night Football" is bucking the trend, posting a 6 percent gain for the season to date. The sports cable network is owned by Disney (DIS).

    "Probably it's a little early to use the word 'worry,' but at this point I think it's something that deserves close attention," said Tuna Amobi, an analyst with CFRA who follows the media sector. "To have now two consecutive years of declines in NFL ratings -- that is something that begs a lot of questions … and could have significant financial implications for the ratings."

    Despite the ratings slump, the NFL remains by far the most popular U.S. sport. Since the start of the season, 17 of the top 20 shows on TV have been NFL games.

    Cutting the grass is a better way.
    But when the grass stops there are always leaves to be raked.
    Honey Do's to be done.
    Go out in the garage and makes something that can be sold at the Church bazaar.
