    NFL national anthem protest denting ticket sales

    Operators of two of the largest U.S. ticket marketplaces say they are seeing declines in orders for NFL games amid festering controversy over the national anthem.
    NFL ticket sales at TickPick slumped 17.9 percent this week compared with the prior week, their steepest decline since 2014, while sales at TicketCity plunged 31 percent.

    September 27, 2017 2:52 PM
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Tens of thousands upset over NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem are planning a boycott of the NFL.
    A Facebook group now has more than 70,000 members calling for a boycott of all NFL games on Veterans Day weekend, Nov. 12-13.
    The group is encouraging people to avoid watching football on both Sunday and Monday to show support for veterans.
    The Facebook event states: “We will be not be watching or listening to NFL games on November 12th in solidarity with veterans around the country, as football players have continued to disrespect the national anthem, the American flag, and everything our nation stands for.”

    The owner of Beef O’Brady’s restaurant in Beavercreek said he had a large crowd Thursday night following his declaration that he will not air NFL games while players protest during the playing of the national anthem.
    “The response was just remarkable last night. We had people coming in that had never been to our restaurant,” said Beef O’Brady’s owner Bill DeFries, who estimated the eatery did three times the business it normally does on a Thursday night.

    The protest worked so well that the owner made a decision on the spot to never again have NFelonsL games in his restaurant. He looked at the research and realized that he could afford losing the business of woemen, manjinas and minorities

    Actually, you are more likely to go back to the NFL if you sell as opposed to burning your NFL merchandise. I would wager good money that the population who quit the NFL without destroying their merchandise would have a high rate of relapse than those who quit the NFL and destroyed their merchandise.

    So it might sound crazy but those guys know what they are doing

    Obama Bemoans Politics of Trump Versus NFL: ‘Can’t Even Get It Out of Football’

    BY: David Rutz
    September 26, 2017
    Former President Barack Obama on Monday bemoaned the fight over kneeling during the national anthem between President Donald Trump and the NFL, saying the country can't even keep politics out of football.
    Obama spoke at a health care conference sponsored by brokerage firm Cantor-Fitzgerald, for which he was paid $400,000. While his prepared remarks centered on health care, the New York Times noted that at the end of his speech, he alluded to the controversy embroiling the NFL.

    "Our big problem right now is politics," he said. "Can't even get it out of football!"

    These protests seem dangerous also especially considering what heppened to French minority athlete Nicolas Anelka after his protest on the field. What if someone accidentally or due to muscle malfunction forgot to close fist when photos are being taken:

    Wait, did he really say that?

    He had his swarms of SJWs mobilized and motivated to push politics into everything, everywhere, all the time!

    Or rather the vocal fans? I don't think all of the "protestors" supporting Obamacare at republican town hall meetings proves anything either. Whoever is feeling the most butthurt at any given moment is the side who "protests." I already know people who were planning on boycotting the NFL prior to Trump's statements but doing it in support of Kaepernick. As far as I know, Kaepernick hasn't been picked up. So.....who's protesting what?

    People are just tired of all the black power this and black lives matter that.

    Injecting racism during one of what many view as a somewhat sacred moment at the beginning of the football game is childish and I think people are tired of the amount of attention these attention seekers are getting. People love their USA and football. The BLM stuff is distracting and annoying.
