    The numbers are in for Sunday Night Football

    The numbers are in, and it's an unmitigated disaster for the Woke BLM-NFL millionaires!

    NBC’s Sunday Night Football Ratings Crash Nearly 30% for Woke Opening Weekend



    The Sunday Night Football clash between the Rams and the Cowboys was supposed to halt the ratings crash the NFL has experienced so far in the 2020 season.

    Spoiler alert, it most certainly did not halt the ratings crash.

    According to DEADLINE Hollywood, ratings for NBC’s only weekly NFL game, were down a shocking 28%.
    Putting on the two teams with big national followings, SNF snared a 4.7 in early ratings among adults 18-49 and 14.81 million viewers last night.

    In numbers certain to change, that’s a fall of 28% in the ratings and a hard decline of 23% in sets of eyeballs from what the September 8, 2019 official start of SNF snagged in the early numbers of its opening game of last season. While the early Nielsen data lacks West Coast numbers, which is kind of important when you have a team from the mega-market of LA playing, this result is going to be hard pill for the NFL and NBC to swallow.

    These results are disastrous for the NFL. Not just because the numbers themselves are bad, but because of the teams that played on Sunday Night Football. The Dallas Cowboys have possible the largest national fan following in the country, and the Los Angeles Rams play in the second largest media market in the country. In addition, both teams have star talent and are very competitive with playoff aspirations for this season. By all measures, the game should have performed extremely well in the ratings.

    DEADLINE continues:

    To add some further context, the 33-3 pummeling of the Pittsburgh Steelers by then reigning Super Bowl champs the New England Patriots last year went on to pull in an audience of 22.2 million on NBC, which was pretty much even with SNF’s 2018 season premiere. That 2019 figure inched up to 22.7 million when digital platform viewing was added in.

    Also, at this point, last night’s SNF is down nearly 10% in the key demo from the early results of the the Kansas City Chiefs near blowout season opener win over the Houston Texans on September 10 this year. That primetime game at Arrowhead Stadium did have a scattering of fans (just over 17,000 in a venue built for more than 76,000) and a strong and blunt social justice and anti-racism message from the league and players – which was booed by said fans. In what may be indicative of where the NFL is already drifting, last night’s SNF was much more subdued in its stance over such issues and saw only a few players take a knee during the national anthem.

    Every NFL game saw a protest of some sort, during the anthem and/or pregame ceremonies. The league’s social justice movement is no doubt responsible for the plummeting numbers which had largely leveled off and actually begun to show improvement last season. It’s also important to note that NBC didn’t even show the full display of social justice demonstrations from the Rams and Cowboys. ESPN, who is slated to televise two Monday Night Football games this evening, has said they will show social justice demonstrations. Meaning, the numbers for those games could potentially be even worse for ESPN.

    while i enjoy football, i am not a super fan of the night games on any night. i will watch but there are more options and such, on tv and off. for me, redzone is my thing. i can't just sit and watch a game straight anymore. red zone spoils me.

    right to the point and dead on. while so many people couldn't wait for sports to get going, that was to be expected with die hard fans. but there are TONS of people out there that are struggling or can't even pay their bills.. let alone worry about cable and sports. fortunately, nothing changed in my life due to covid, but i've barely been watching any games. it's not the same right now.

Heck, in years past, it was hard sleeping the night before week 1 Sunday. Not this time.

    It really does amaze me how out of touch these multimillionaire players, the owners and the League is. They know they are dividing their fans heading into the season with all this BLM nonsense. They heard the backlash. They saw the decline a couple seasons ago. But they went through with it anyways.

    All we heard the last week and all day Sunday was all these huge contracts they are getting. Mahomes and Watson getting almost one billion yaddy yaddy yadda. And then you get this great guy saying something this ...



    How can he be so naive? No one is against their message. We just don't want to see it and hear about it during the games.

    The 20 minutes of repeated player protests, helmet sticker zooms, and commentary from millionaires telling everyone else what white privilege is, well turned off their fan base. Only people watching are fantasy and the bettors. Others are the hardcore fan-boys, wearing their jerseys

    for sure

    can't they just do their protests at home behind their locked doors, with the curtains closed and lights turned out? maybe in a closet? Preferably late late at night, when i'm asleep

    I'm glad to see the NBA and NFL getting punished with their ratings for making BLM a main front to their sport.. It's non stop pumped into your brain while watching sports now and I don't like it. We got the message already now I just wanna see the sport be played..

    BLM is a hoax, cops don't target blacks.. 99% of cops are good cops also. This movement is fake news and a load of crap!! Wrongful death cop killings don't happen very often in America and when they do it happens to all races and not just blacks..

    the average person on the street today, to not care about pro sports, i heard it so many times, they think the money these players are getting is crazy, i know it no fans today, but when fans can go to see the games, think how much money for the average fan spend to see 1 damn game.Plus they are sick of the blm stuff, we see these thugs tearing up our american cities on a daily thing, we dont want to see this crap in our sports period....

    I sense some sarcasm there.

    Maybe decades ago where there wasn't any social media and only a few channels on TV I would be open to perhaps modify my thinking on the subject of protesting at work. But today, there are tons ways to get your message out. Especially if you are an athlete. No reason to do it on game day. I mean, have you not heard about BLM until you watched an NFL game?

    Could it also be that many people are watching the games on streams since Dish services and Cable prices are ridiculously high?

    I mean, I do and I know a lot of other people that do as well.

    Overload of BLM makes people sick. Not that they don't care, it but it's like a commercial that plays every hour for months.

    I think the NFL/Sports is setting a bad precedent by ‘Saying Their Names’. Yes, the police shootings are tragic - but George Floyd? Jacob Blake? They’re still career criminals with histories of domestic abuse, sexual assaults, robberies, etc. - - not exactly role models for the youths watching the games.....

    There are protests and rioting right now in Lancaster over a man who attacked a cop with a knife when the cop responded to a domestic Disturbance call, and it's all on his body cam video.

    https://nypost.com/2020/09/14/police...-pennsylvania/

    https://lancasteronline.com/news/loc...363aa941f.html





    Justified shooting all on video and the mob still doesn't care. All they want to do is riot now every time the cops try and do their jobs.

    There was also a incident in Detroit a few months ago where people violently protested over a criminal shooting at a cop point blank at the cop's head and another cop shooting and killing him.

    This.

    Almost every sport I watch now I DVR and start watching an hour or two later.

    Fast-forward through all the pregame nonsense and commercials.

    I'm numb to all the BLM commercials and constant BLM woke commentary now to be honest in all sports.. I just tune it all out every chance I can, I turn the channel during it or mute the volume and or fast forward the BLM commercials with the DVR. Get up take a leak during it, etc. If they kneel I turn the channel also.

    How much more content is there YoY? 1000% maybe more? Couple that with the different ways to consume content. I also wouldn't be surprised if the Neilsen company disappears in the next 10 years. Ma and Pa aren't gathering around the old cathode ray tube anymore.

    They were also both high on drugs at the times of their deaths and resisting... Don't forget to mention that.
