Is this an opinion or a sourced fact? I wonder if new advertisers come on if they will demand a lower cost?



There are probably 50 other companies waiting in line to advertise in their spot. So many more companies can pull their ads, and many others will take their place.

They can do that if they wish. Ads are to get your name and products to consumers. If they want to have less traffic and revenue themselves kudos for sticking to their principles. Like free speech, this too has consequences. 2 way street.

I did put a geico commercial in there because they seem more plentiful than the others.


Sorry, didn't click in my melon. I was thinking of the retired QB and Nationwide.

Or a loss or turning customers away by being associated with the NFL.

The car company says that 99% of their contacts say that the NFL is a negative. This may hit their bottom line.

Yeah. Good point I guess I could have gone generic. I forgot about the rise of Nationwide commercials in the more recent years.

Who are these "contacts"? Like has been said, once the money starts to dip reconsideration will happen.

it sure is detrimental to the NFL that it's making headlines week after week.

if kneeling was bad for business, it would have been nipped in the bud from day dot..

im going to guess that you don't care about the NFL so much that you made a thread about it.

go Pats

White NFL viewers are getting few up of getting the blame for everything from slavery to having white privilege, having to put up with random assaults (polar bear hunting), being discriminated by affirmative action programs. Having players kneeling during the national anthem just takes the piss.

i got a chance to chat online with my husband last night, an active duty service member in his 15th year of service. he is currently away from me, serving our country.

this topic came up, and he had some less than complimentary things to say about people in his vicinity (who are NOT in the service), who get all 'right wing aggro' about the topic and cite 'how soldiers feel' as their reason to be angry.

here is his direct quote: "I'm serving. I say the right to protest is a good thing."

I haven't watched one NFL game since that. I started my boycot about forty years ago.
I do watch one game a year to see the commercials though. Now I will have to skip that too.

I think the NFL should punish the people who do that. They do not have the ability to control the teams, but they can control whether they are allowed to play.

I would rather watch a high school game than an NFL game. I do not think that the players are worth those big bucks.

I more disagree with college coaches getting over a million bucks a year when teachers make only sixty grand a year.

So it doesn't matter to you if someone advertises or not then.

I don't think that the players should be doing things like that. I actually believe we have the right to protest, but not in a place like that. We should not be protesting just because the other parties candidate won, I doubt if hardly any of those football players actually even voted.

Doesn't address my point, "So it doesn't matter to you if someone advertises or not then."

To me, I wouldn't want a company I have ties to advertising with the NFL anymore till they do something about it. We own some stock and I would prefer to have those companies pull advertising. www.bloomberg.com...

Gotcha. You woundn't see the ads but want to spank the NFL anyway. THIS is why I question the 99% of "contacts". Are they influenced by the ads to purchase goods? If not pulling ads for political reasons is hurting your own bottom line. Those that DO watch, and the NFL has a huge viewership, yes, still does) won't be aware of your promotions. Not smart.

I still watch or leave the NFL on. I watch the games i am interested in and let the back ground noise instead of netfiix stuff.

I think an objective approach is the best when looking at this one. The players want to show the world that minorities are being murdered by police officers.

The NFL "customers" and sponsors may or may not buy into the kneeling, locking arms or fist raising. Money will solve this one. If sponsors jump ship the players shenanigans will stop.

I don't think people were offended. In fact I have yet to see anyone say they were offended.

People (advertisers) were/are pissed that the owners haven't taken a leadership role in curtailing this while the players are on the dime. Adds are about getting your product in front of people's wealthy faces. And kneeling during the Anthem or locking arms or raising a fist or kneeling then standing is pissing the wealthy customers off.

Simple this is about money and perceived disrespect.


I disagree. I mean on my facebook feed alone I see people burning jerseys and season tickets and swearing that they'll never watch an NFL game again. Snowflakes. Special snowflakes


Woman being beaten to a pulp, totally cool though.


You hit the nail on the head. If you're going to stop watching the NFL, then do it for that or post that on Facebook, but don't do it because someone is actually protesting a real issue or some injustice. Somehow, for most NFL fans, domestic assault doesn't get them upset but taking a knee does. It's a contrivied fake outrage.
