So basically this whole protest of the protest has resulted in more fans tuning into games this year.

www.usatoday.com...

Pretty obvious that those making all the noise are a huge minority in this great country of ours.

Don't know about you or anyone else, but it makes me yawn uncontrollably and frequently.

I think people are tuning in right now out of curiosity to see who is standing and who is taking a knee.

But, after the curiosity wears off, I see viewership and support for the NFL waning Big League. We'll see. I am already hearing from friends that they will no longer watch pro football. It's over...dead...or dying.

I haven't watched tv in almost a decade, and I never could sit and watch sports.

Amazing to see how many simple-minded weekend warriors can lose their mind over a game.

Really does make me worry about the world.

However, disrespecting those who gave their lives for this country by disrespecting the flag and anthem should be a prison sentence, or perhaps a loss of a year worth of wages after all the people who gave their lives for their freedom to be disrespectful were making pennies on the dollar compares to these overly-privileged athletes.

Well it's going to make those here saying the protest is the league's demise go:



Trump inflames situation...protest increases.
Whiners complain... numbers go up. They learned from the best. Bwahahahaha....

Simple -

You yell "fire!", people are gonna look.

If it bleeds, it leads.

We will see this time, intrepid.

People I thought would never give up watching NFL football are DONE with it.....everything. And I don't think it is temporary. I think this is a fatal wound for the NFL. It may take awhile to fester and spread, but it will.

Maybe it is time for soccer to take over...

The NFL will never die and I will never stop watching games.
And there have been plenty of times when I said I will never watch the Detroit Lions again just because they sucked so bad and I still watch after being tortured by them for years LOL
I will just tune in 2 minutes after the game starts so I don't have to watch the idiots take a knee or whatever.

Most of those people are being melodramatic. If they are even following through with their words, it will only be temporary.

Pretty much within the standard deviation, I'm guessing. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. It certainly doesn't prove viewership is up due to the protest element, IMO. The same percentage could be attributed to lowered testosterone, aging of the target audience, or exceptionally rainy weather with hurricane season, combined with lost work hours in Texas and Florida.

Funny how that goes. Trump says the NYT is dying and yet their circulation has increased. People say that Maddow's report on Trump's tax return will be the end of her. Ever since she has been #1 in the ratings. And now this NFL thing.

It's almost like those on the Right have no idea what they're talking about.

To be fair soccer has and will continue to see a rise in popularity. But it has nothing to do with protests or anything. It's because its model is better designed for the modern era.

Stopping every few seconds for a commercial break doesn't play out well for all the people watching online. Constant action does.

From your own source, the very first paragraph:


Television ratings for the NFL’s Week 3 games were up 3% across all games from 2016, including a spike of 63% in the rating for Monday Night Football, the league announced Tuesday morning.

Last year’s Week 3 Monday Night Football game went head-to-head with a presidential debate.

So there's your answer. Monday Night Football saved the week, but only because last year's game was a ratings dud. Overall for the season, NFL viewership is down 11%.

And, notsure1 is correct: the real question is what happens this coming weekend. If viewership is noticeably down, then damn sure people are tuning off the game.
