Teams in the NFL are struggling mightily after their players have decided to protest during the national anthem. It seems like they would understand that these kinds of protests will not be tolerated. Fans have been boycotting the games ever since the kneeling started. The people who have given their lives to protect this nation will not stand for this kind of injustice.
And as it turns out, the NFL really is seeing the consequences of their actions. Fans are done watching this kind of disrespect shown at a football game. The NFL used to be about hanging out with friends and family while watching a favorite team play. But not any longer. Now these players have decided to bring politics into play.
We have to see enough politics as it is. We do not need the NFL adding their input on a weekly basis. This disgusting behavior has left the entire league in a bit of a hole. The league does not know what to do about the players. If they were smart, they would have outlawed this kind of behavior before the first player had to opportunity to protest. But that is not what happened.
Now take a look at the results:

Not only are fans not watching the games on television. They cannot even be bothered to go to the games at all. This is so sad to see. But it is also expected. And unless the league does something in a hurry, it will continue on getting worse and worse until no one watches anymore.
The profitability is also plummeting. That means that executives are not happy. Eventually, the NFL will have to do whatever it can to save themselves. If that means ending the protests, that is what they will do.
If players want to sit for the anthem then maybe they should sit for the game too. This is no way to treat a country that has given you millions of dollars a year. The fact that these are the people complaining about inequality should tell you a lot about the NFL as a league.
Do they deserve this? What do you think ?
