SACKED: NFL Favorability Cut in Half

on

The NFL has made the decision to side with those that kneel during the National Anthem.

It appears, however, that the majority of Americans agree with President Trump.

It’s been a bad, bad week for the NFL. President Trump decided to criticize the league for not requiring the players to stand for the National Anthem. Instead of doing the right thing, the owners decided to support the players taking a knee for our flag. The travesty that ensued was absolutely sickening. Mass disrespect throughout the NFL and spitting in the face of our President. They may come to regret that decision very soon.

In a report prepared for The Daily Caller, Morning Consult conducted a survey of Trump supporters. The findings were nothing but scary if you are an owner of the NFL or one of their affiliates. The favorability of the NFL is in absolute free fall, dropping by almost 50% in a week’s time.

Via The Daily Caller/Morning Consult:

NFL’s Brand Favorability Drops To Lowest Point Since Morning Consult Started Tracking: The NFL’s net favorability has dropped from 30% on September 21 to 17% on September 28.

On September 21, 25% of Trump supporters said they had a very favorable view of the NFL and 11% had a very unfavorable view.

As of Sept 28, those numbers have dramatically changed with 33% of Trump supporters say they have a very unfavorable view of the NFL and 16% report having a very favorable view.

Is this the final ‘stand’ of the NFL?

The NFL has a decision to make: Realize their error or die a slow, agonizing death financially. It may already be too late, however. The NFL (and the players taking a knee) have forgotten who they are beholden to, the American people. The fans aren’t under the thumb of the owners/players, it’s the other way around. Without us, they cease to exist as a league. Many fans have already destroyed their memorabilia and season tickets. Others have cancelled their NFL Sunday Ticket subscriptions with DirecTV. If they apologize and start standing, they may survive. I tend to think they won’t do this, however. They seem primed and ready to double down on stupid. RIP NFL.

    These athletes are NOT showing “disrespect ” for the flag or America . To say they are is as ludicrous as accusing the late Rosa Parks of showing disrespect for the public transit system ! They are protesting the
    rampant inequality and injustice, especially against black people which plagues America, and the tacit support for these things by Trump . Dissent is the highest form of patriotism !

      Those jokers are nothing but losers. Most are not personally liked. They are disrespectful, ignorant and lack appreciation for the gift they have been given. Few ever make a difference like cops, firefighters and soldiers.
