SIGNIFICANT Number Of TV Viewers Boycotting NFL Over Kaepernick-Style Protests

NFL leadership has refused to condemn San Francisco 49ers football player Colin Kaepernick and those who are imitating him by not standing during the playing on the National Anthem at the start of games. And it's coming back to bite them.


According to Sporting News, Rasmussen conducted a survey earlier this week to see how many NFL TV viewers have found themselves less likely to watch amidst the protests versus how many are more likely to watch.

What did they find out? Only 13 of NFL viewers felt the protests made them prouder of watching the games. On the other hand, 32 percent — nearly one-third — have found themselves shutting the game off.

That's a huge blow for a giant money-making industry. And people aren't just talking about boycotting. Week 4 of the 2016 season has already seen a double-digit drop in viewership.

It certainly puts the NFL leadership in a tough position. Do they stubbornly stick with their semi-passive acceptance of the protests during their games, or do they get off the "social justice warrior" bandwagon and assure their exiting fans that the NFL is not being unpatriotic.
