The NFL National Anthem protests are coming to bite the NFL right in the butt.
These players have decided that kneeling during the National Anthem is getting a point across about “racial inequality” in America.
Network executives have decided that something must be done in order to put an end to the rising tension between viewers and those participating in NFL protests. The ratings are horrible!
They have decided that there is only one real solution to the problem, and that is getting rid of the games in order to stop the “over-saturation” of football on American television.
The idea to trim Thursday Night Football from 18 games a season to only eight was first reported by Sports Business Journal and was part of a plan to reverse the ratings crash
Mike Mulvihill, a Fox Sports vice president, told SBJ that the problem isn’t that there is too much NFL on TV, but that there is too much football all the way around — including college.
“The rise in football availability is pretty dramatic,” Mulvihill said. “This is what drives fragmentation in every area of television. … You can argue whether there’s greater or lesser interest in the game of football than there was ten years ago. But clearly, whatever that interest is, it’s being spread out over quite a few more windows than it was ten years ago.”
What do you think? The low ratings are due to the “over-saturation” of football in TV or the stupid national anthem protests?
