Here is some good news for all patriotic Americans out there.
It seems the NFL’s primetime numbers once again suffered greatly according to Breitbart News. During the opener this week, and after seeing the numbers garnered by Monday Night Football, it’s starting to look like there is no change in the trend ending anytime soon.
Here is what the assistant editor at Sports Business Daily, Austin Karp, had to say about the numbers.
Jets-Lions is lowest early window MNF opener in at least a dozen years. Blowouts never good. Rams-Raiders is flat compared to Chargers-Broncos last year in late window https://t.co/TVWQ4zSHPP

Here is more on this via Deadline Hollywood:
“The much-touted new defense of the Los Angeles Rams wasn’t quite all that and a bag of chips, but the Rams’ 33-13 victory over the Raiders in the later game was certainly convincing. With new team members in the broadcast booth for the Disney-owned sports cabler, that West Coast matchup followed the Lions taking a 48-17 pounding at the hands of the New York Jets.
“The start of the 49th season of MNF and ESPN took a small ratings hit last night compared with incomplete early numbers last year. That’s a hard fact for the NFL coming after Thursday’s 2018-2019 kickoff game on NBC fell to a near decade viewership low and Sunday Night Football stumbled in its season premiere.
“With a 7.5 metered-market result for the Jets-Lions and a 7.0 in the early metrics for Rams-Raiders, last night’s MNF season opener slipped 4% from the doubleheader of September 11, 2017. That doubleheader was down double digits from the 2016 opener, which was down hard from the year before.
“While at first glance the difference between this year and 2017 might seem small, it is important to remember because of Hurricane Irma last year not all markets reported in with early numbers. So, the results for the Minnesota Vikings’ 29-19 win over the New Orleans Saints and the Denver Broncos’ 24-21 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers were based on only 48 of the usual 56 markets that make up the first round of ratings. It means the ratings decline for this year might be more in line with the overall sagging response the NFL and its various broadcasters have seen the past couple of years.
“Still, it seems pretty clear ESPN will win Monday on all of TV, even with the likes of Bachelor In Paradise on ABC and the season finale of American Ninja Warrior on NBC. Of course, ABC stations in LA, Detroit and San Francisco all carried the NFL games, as did the CW in New York.
“Next week’s MNF sees the Seattle Seahawks taking on the Chicago Bears in the Windy City. While we wait for that, here’s a stat or two for you: The Jets-Lions game Monday peaked with a strong 9.0 rating in the 9:30-9:45 PM ET time period, and the Rams-Raiders topped out with an 8.7 in the 10:45-11 PM ET slot.
“And today, on the 17th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, take a moment to remember and respect those we lost that day and since.”
All this is even worse if you consider that the late game featured a major team from Los Angeles, Gruden’s return and the fact that the game is said to have been pretty good since both teams were tied 13-13 as they reached the 3rd quarter.
And of course, President Trump chimed in on the crashing ratings of a sport that’s close to being on life support.

The ungrateful ball tossers in the NFL never dreamed that the fans would turn off their TVs and stop buying their tickets. But that’s what’s happening here. And the best part is that since most of these guys are barely literate and don’t understand economics they can’t really understand that sooner or later their own pocketbooks will be taking a hit.
And when that happens they will be asking us fans to please return and they will be standing taller for the National Anthem than ever before. Because you see, all this from the beginning was a temper tantrum from a player who was benched for plainly enough, not being a very good player.
Sure our country isn’t perfect, but it’s the best ever known to man, and it’s the one who is dumb enough to pay a bunch of ball-tossing ingrates an average of 2.5 million a year to do what most people would gladly do as a hobby… throw around a damn ball.

NFL Partners With Rapper Jay-Z To Co-Produce Super Bowl Show – ‘Will Inspire Social Change’
This will further destroy the NFL. A sport that Americans once loved. This will only be a disaster for the NFL.
Majority of America is beyond tired of this Anti-American garbage. So..continue on, NFL. You will continue to lose more and more supporters.
The NFL has announced that it has turned over a large portion of the decision making process for the Super Bowl halftime show, as well as other music and entertainment decisions, to social justice activist and rapper Jay-Z and his Roc Nation entertainment company.
Given the activist politics of Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce, league entertainment choices will likely be heavily driven by “woke” motivations.
On Tuesday, the NFL announced that it was partnering with Roc Nation for the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show. But subsequent reports have noted that Jay-Z’s entertainment company will have far more responsibilities than just programming the 2020 Super Bowl.
According to ESPN, the league is handing over most of its entertainment decisions to Jay-Z, including, making him the co-producer of the Super Bowl.
The rapper celebrated the move:
“With its global reach, the National Football League has the platform and opportunity to inspire change across the country,” the rapper said in a statement. “Roc Nation has shown that entertainment and enacting change are not mutually exclusive ideas — instead, we unify them. This partnership is an opportunity to strengthen the fabric of communities across America.”
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also touted the partnership:
“Roc Nation is one of the most globally influential and impactful organizations in entertainment,” Goodell said on Wednesday. “The NFL and Roc Nation share a vision of inspiring meaningful social change across our country. We are thrilled to partner with Roc Nation and look forward to making a difference in our communities together.”
The deal hands Jay-Z responsibility for “creation and distribution of music content across multiple music and streaming services, as well as consult and collaborate on the production, promotion, and marketing of live music events,” ESPN wrote. Continue Reading

U.S. Fencer Pulls A ‘Kaepernick’ On Medal Stand During Anthem – WATCH
These people are supposed to representing our country..and instead, are a total embarrassment. If you don’t love this country.. don’t put on that uniform. In fact, you are free to leave.
What a perfect opportunity for Race Imboden to defect. He should renounce his US citizenship, and say goodbye forever to the country he hates so much.
Men and women have died for our freedom. Precious blood was spilled for this country. If you hate it.. why are you here? Why represent a country you hate? Liberals are hate-filled lunatics.
These people don’t represent us!
A member of the U.S. men’s fencing team took a knee during the Star-Spangled Banner on Friday, at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
Race Imboden an Olympic medalist and member of the U.S. men’s foil team, took a knee after his team won the gold at the games. He also took to Twitter to exclaim how ashamed he is of the United States, the Washington Post reported.
“Racism, Gun Control, mistreatment of immigrants, and a president who spreads hate are at the top of a long list,” Imboden tweeted. “I chose to [sacrifice] my moment today at the top of the podium to call attention to issues that I believe need to be addressed. I encourage others to please use your platforms for empowerment and change”

Imboden now shares a bronze with Canadian Maximilien van Haaster for men’s foil and was part of the U.S. team’s gold win in team foil at this year’s Pan Am Games.
Mark Jones, vice president of communications for the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, issued a statement noting that Imboden violated the rules of the games with his protest against the United States.
“Every athlete competing at the 2019 Pan American Games commits to terms of eligibility, including to refrain from demonstrations that are political in nature. In this case, Race didn’t adhere to the commitment he made to the organizing committee and the USOPC,” Jones said.
“We respect his rights to express his viewpoints, but we are disappointed that he chose not to honor his commitment. Our leadership are reviewing what consequences may result,” Jones added.
Imboden’s teammates, Gerek Meinhardt, and Nick Itkin, both stood at attention during the national anthem. Continue Reading
