'Monday Night Football' Ratings Fall To Season Low...

CBS Earnings Projections Take Big Hit As Viewers Abandon...

 

( CBS = "See B.S." )

 

It felt like a little bit of history was being made on Monday Night Football as the Tennessee Titans finally snapped their streak of 11 consecutive losses to the Indianapolis Colts. However, as social media sparked with ESPN not showing the playing of the national anthem, another type of history was also being made: Last night’s primetime broadcast of the Titans’ 36-22 victory stumbled to a season low with a 6.1 in metered market results.

Declining NFL television ratings will lower CBS earnings, according to Credit Suisse.

The firm cut its third-quarter EPS estimates by 5 percent, citing CBS' softer Sunday NFL ratings. The media company reports on Nov. 2.

CBS ... update : 5-yrs :

CBS puts on Monday Night Football (NFL) - & pays alot to the NFL to do so

EXCERPT:

SCHIFFER: "Well, it's interesting, Neil. I think where it's going to go, is they're going to pull way back. I think they overreacted. To push back against the president --"
CAVUTO: "Who's -- who's going go pull back way back?"
SCHIFFER: "I think the NFL."
CAVUTO: "OK."
SCHIFFER: "I think the NFL is going to have to. And the -- the different teams, they overextend themselves to go after the president defined themselves. They then defined themselves on behalf of the players. And they alienated this significant swath of viewers that look at the NFL's move as a complete shot at them, a disrespect to the principles and heart of what they believe and certainly, patriotism. And so they're voting. They're going to vote in subscribership with DIRECTV and others. They're going to vote with their pocketbook. And they're making their voice very loud. And certainly advertisers, they have to be aware of this now and advertisers are much like anyone else, in partisan areas like this, it puts them in harm's way. So they're going to bail all which is bad for the NFL. It was the worst branding move of -- of modern history, in terms of sports, a really bad choice. And Goodell owns it. He made the decision to attack the president, and it was a bad choice."

'Without a doubt this is already an NFL season Roger Goodell can't wait to drop kick into distant memory. As players' political activism increasingly encroaches onto the playing field, ratings are getting blitzed.

Over the first six weeks, NFL ratings are down 7.5 percent as compared to last season, per Nielsen. They're down 18.7 percent from the 2015 season.

(Commenting last year on the decline, Goodell punted, blaming the presidential election for America's fading interest.)'

'BOSTON (CBS) — For most of the 2016 season, the NFL largely blamed the U.S. presidential election for a decline in TV ratings. But with the league’s numbers down another 7.5 percent so far in 2017, amid a growing backlash to players’ national anthem protests, the owners are finally taking the ratings decline seriously.

Nielsen reported earlier this week that the NFL’s TV ratings were down by 7.5 percent compared to the first six weeks of the 2016 season. But numbers reported to the owners at the meeting were even more alarming.

Twenty-five of 31 NFL teams (excluding the Chargers) are experiencing local declines in ratings, including an 8 percent drop for the Patriots, 7 percent for the Cowboys, and 6 percent for the Steelers. Only the Chiefs, Buccaneers, and Lions are up by more than 5 percent.'

Hillary Clinton: Anyone Who Accepts Roy Moore’s ‘Bigotry and Hatred’ Should Be Held Accountable

 

by Pam Key29 Oct 20171,165

Saturday night in Washington, D.C. at a dinner for the Human Rights Campaign, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said anyone who endorsed or accepted the “bigotry and hatred” of Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore “should be held accountable.”

Clinton said, “When the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama supports the idea that homosexuality should be criminalized, and refuses to say whether or not he thinks that LGBT people should be executed, Americans of every party, of any decency—Democrats, Republicans and independent—should line up and condemn him and those views.”

She continued, “And that includes the president, the Senate majority leader, the speaker of the House and every single elected official who endorses a candidate with those views should be held accountable.”

Papa John customers support Trump's reaction to NFL protests

 

It Begins: Papa Johns Complains to NFL About Anthem Protests As Sales Fall

 

No other brand name has been more synonymous with the NFL over the years, than Papa John’s. However, that bond might soon break, as the pizza giant let the NFL know that the league’s anthem protests are killing their business.

According to a report in the Sports Business Journal, in-game pizza sales have fallen off dramatically since President Trump blasted NFL protesters in September.

According to SBJ, “NFL spokesperson Joe Lockhart confirmed to Sports Business Journal that Papa John’s had expressed concerns with the league. Further, Lockhart said that other top sponsors have expressed similar concerns as the NFL’s TV ratings slump and political battles play out in the league.”

NFL players have been kneeling in protest of the national anthem, ever since former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began doing so in the preseason of 2016. Fans have reacted overwhelmingly negatively to the protests, citing them as the primary factor why they stopped watching the games.

President Trump targeted the NFL in particular in late September at a political rally in Alabama, where he called protesting players “SOB’s,” and said he wished their team owners would fire them.

NFL Viewership Down 20 Percent, Could Cost League $920 Million In Telecast Profits

 

Forbes reports that this season’s television viewership is down by 3 million relative to the 2013 and 2014 seasons. And when accounting for the telecast’s average reach, and live ticket sales, the NFL’s viewership is down by over 4 million—a staggering 20 percent.

Some have tried to argue that the NFL’s decline is part of a broader trend: millennials and generation Z aren’t as interested in sports as are their parents and grandparents etc. This is true, but losing 20 percent viewership in the space of two years has nothing to do with broad trends—specifics matter. In this case, the anthem protests are squarely to blame.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure this out: the people have spoken. A recent poll done by Rasmussen Reports found that one-third of American adults said they’re “less likely to watch NFL game telecasts because of the Kaepernick-led player protests.” Conversely, only 13 percent of respondents said they were “more likely” to watch because of the protests.

No NFL players protest before games on Veterans Day weekend?

3 take knee...

Bears Packers Game HALF EMPTY at Soldier Field...

 

 

No NFL players protested during the national anthem during Sunday’s early games, according to multiple reports.

The NFL Players Association unanimously passed a resolution earlier in the week calling for a moment of silence during Sunday’s games in honor of Veterans Day.

Players who previously knelt or raised their fists during the anthem stood this week. Tennessee Titans receiver Rishard Matthews walked onto the field holding hands with soldiers, then stood for the anthem, The Associated Press reported.

. . .

Three players took a knee during the national anthem before the New York Giants game at the San Francisco 49ers, as the rest of the league stood during Veterans Day weekend.

49ers Eric Reid and Marquise Goodwin, both of whom have been protesting for most of the season, knelt, as did Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon , who was just activated. Vernon had been protesting while he was injured.

Verified account @realDonaldTrump Nov 20

Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.

NFL ratings slump getting worse...

 

The TV audience for NFL games steepened its slide in Week 11, losing 1 million viewers versus last year’s season-to-date average.

The 6.3 percent slump — worsening from comparable declines of 5.6 to 5.7 percent during the previous three weeks — plagued a week whose off-the-field drama made gridiron tackling seem almost tame by comparison.

 

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones remained the major distraction by continuing to battle with fellow team owners and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Jones brought even more tension to Week 11 when video footage surfaced late last week of the football tycoon making a racially charged remark at a 2013 wedding party.

 

President Donald Trump added to the off-field antics with a tweet calling for the suspension of the Oakland Raiders’ Marshawn Lynch for not standing for the national anthem during a game played in Mexico City.

Only two games had audience gains.

The NFL Turning Its Back On Colin Kaepernick Show Us the Fruits of Social Justice

Everything that you’re owed comes around. Maybe it takes a day, maybe it takes a few years, but every action you have has some sort of reaction. In Colin Kaepernick’s case, his actions have finally brought what he’s owed around.

And what he was owed was nothing. Absolutely nothing.

According to the Reuters, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said the league has “moved on” from Colin Kaepernick after the former San Francisco 49ers player skipped a special workout planned just for him...
