ESPN President Thinks Fox News Is Conspiring Against The Network Photo of David Hookstead
Post Date: 2017-10-13 01:51:34 by Tooconservative
ESPN president John Skipper thinks Tucker Carlson, Fox News and Clay Travis are involved in a conspiracy to destroy the network. Travis broke the story fed to him by sources at a meeting with Skipper in Los Angeles, and the details dont look good for the sports network. The Outkick the Coverage founder wrote: Skipper then attacked me by name, saying that Clay Travis is someone whos out to get us and is spreading misinformation devoted to destroying ESPN. (Id love to know what misinformation Im spreading, since everything Ive reported about ESPN has proven to be 100% accurate.) He also attacked Fox News taking shots at Tucker Carlson in particular and pointed ...
NFL Now One Of Most Divisive Brands In America
Post Date: 2017-10-12 13:37:21 by Tooconservative
The National Football League is steadily climbing its way up the list of most polarizing brands in the country. While the net favorability of the NFL among Hillary Clinton voters is +38%, it's -24 among supporters of President Trump, the New York Times writes. That puts it seventh on the list, after Trump Hotels, CNN, NBC News, The New York, MSNBC and Fox News. About three weeks ago before President Trump said that N.F.L. owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem Democrats and Republicans held relatively similar views about the league. About 60 percent said they viewed it favorably, while about 20 percent said they viewed it unfavorably, according to ...
'Sunday Night Football' Ratings Decline Continues Photo of Katie Jerkovich

Sunday Night Football suffered again in the ratings battle, despite the exciting game Sunday night between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans. NBC and the National Football League scored a 10.6/18 in metered market households in the match that saw the Chiefs beat the Texans 42-34 at NRG Stadium in Texas, according to Deadline Monday. Thats a drop of 3 percent over last Sunday nights match where the Seattle Seahawks beat the Indianapolis Colts 46-18. Those numbers make it the lowest rated game so far in a season, which has seen ratings drop as NFL players and coaches allow protests during the national anthem. Last week, SNF ...

Vice President Mike Pence departed an NFL game Sunday afternoon in response to several players who knelt during the playing of the National Anthem. Pence and his wife Karen were among the spectators in Indianapolis for a contest between the Colts and San Francisco 49ers. After more than 20 San Francisco players took a knee for the song, he left.

Shock poll: NFL now least liked sport, core fans down 31%

Over just one month of player, coach, and owner protests of the flag and National Anthem, the National Football League has gone from America's sport to the least liked of top professional and college sports, according to a new poll. From the end of August to the end of September, the favorable ratings for the NFL have dropped from 57 percent to 44 percent, and it has the highest unfavorable rating 40 percent of any big sport, according to the Winston Group survey provided exclusively to Secrets. Worse for football, which was already seeing lower TV ratings and empty stadium seats, the month of protests and complaints about them from President Trump drove core fans, men ...
Ouch! NFL TV ratings drop again as angry fans exercise their own rights
Post Date: 2017-10-04 16:03:52 by Tooconservative
Pretty soon, it could be NFL team owners on their knees begging TV viewers to come back. Once again in Week 4 of the 2017 season, as players continued their sitting-kneeling protests against something, former fans silently exercised their right of free speech using TV remotes. Despite the always insightful, candid commentary of Jon Gruden, this weeks Monday Night game on ESPN lost audience again. It was actually a pretty good game, by all accounts. After the 29-20 win, Kansas City remained the only unbeaten team at 4-0, while Washington fell to 2-2. This game though drew 13% fewer viewers than last week. And the drop was worse 16% in the key demo that ad buyers covet. ...

Kaepernick, just before some white guy grabbed his ball and ran away. The Tennessee Titans signed backup quarterback Brandon Weeden after an injury to Marcus Mariota, and supporters of Colin Kaepernick are not happy. The Twitter universe exploded with plenty of hot takes after another white backup quarterback was signed before the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who infamously refused to stand for the anthem.

Budweiser is actively seeking customer opinions on NFL sponsorship; call 800-342-5283
Post Date: 2017-10-01 16:32:13 by Tooconservative
Anheuser-Busch, one of the NFLs biggest sponsors, is weighing feedback from its customers on its sponsorship of the NFL. The NFL player protests of the National Anthem have backfired in a major way on the league. It has seen sponsors pull out, ratings decline and teams play in front of practically empty stadiums. But a sponsor like Budweiser ending its support of the league would be a devastating blow. And if the companys hotline is to be believed, the NFL has something to be concerned about. When customers call the number, 1-800-342-5283, they are greeted by a recording which gives, as its first option, a chance for anyone for or against the player protests to voice their ...

62% of NFL fans plan to watch less football
Post Date: 2017-09-30 13:20:49 by Tooconservative
Is it a passing storm or an existential problem? Thats a key question for the NFL as it grapples with the mushrooming controversy of players kneeling in protest during the national anthem, and President Donald Trumps persistent bashing of the kneelers. A new Yahoo Finance poll suggests the NLF has an enduring problem on its hands. Nearly 62% of 9,056 respondents told us they plan to watch less pro football in response to the anthem controversy. Thirty-six percent said they plan to buy less NFL merchandise, and 32% have chosen not to attend a game they would otherwise have gone to. Those findings all have financial implications for the NFL and its 32 team owners. We wanted to ...

The Slow Death Of The NFL?
Post Date: 2017-09-28 12:09:06 by Tooconservative
I should say at the outset that Ive never really been a big football fan. I grew up in Detroit and played hockey, so I love the Redwings. Besides, we didnt really have a professional team in Detroit; we only had the Lions. Jokes aside, I watched it nearly every week. Not intently, but it was on in the background because its easy to do other things with football on. Whether its cleaning, writing or whatever, there are long stretches of time during a football game where nothing much happens. And if anything interesting does happen the announcers voice and crowd noise give it away and you can look at the TV. If you miss that, they replay it immediately. ...

Robert Barnes: No, NFL Players Do Not Have a Right to Kneel or Boycott American Anthem The Associated Press by Robert Barnes 26 Sep 2017 Like the Democratic Party, the NFL has forgot who put them there. The NFL is in the entertainment business, and the heart of its fan base is Trump country. It aint CNN. First, the First Amendment protects against the government limiting speech (like public universities do routinely these days); it is not a license to use your employer to harangue their customers.

NFL sacks taxpayers for billions in stadium subsidies and other goodies
Post Date: 2017-09-26 04:29:50 by 3-Dee
BLITZING TAXPAYERS: Even in states facing billion dollar budget shortfalls, the NFL has been able to get massive handouts in recent years. The National Football League sacks taxpayers from every angle. The NFL is technically a nonprofit thanks to a special exception in the tax code carved out by Congress in the 1960s despite making billions of dollars of profit each year and paying top executives seven-figure salaries. The NFL is allowed to negotiate contracts that would be illegal for companies like Apple or Exxon thank Congress again for that one. And the NFL is able to use its financial and political muscle to get lots of additional freebies from city and state ...

Bills Blocking Taxpayer Funding Of Sports Arenas Could Gain Steam Amid Anthem Protests
Post Date: 2017-09-25 09:25:23 by Tooconservative
Senators proposed a bill this summer to prevent federal taxpayer funding from going towards the construction of professional sports arenas, and after more players began supporting the protest of the national anthem before games, the legislation may begin to pick up steam. A companion measure to the legislation was already proposed in the House back in March by Oklahoma Republican Rep. Steve Russell. Last June, New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker and Republican Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford put forth a bill that would ban professional sports teams from using municipal bonds in relation to federal funding to build their sports arenas. Professional sports teams generate billions of ...

49ers-Rams tickets reselling for the price of two stadium pretzels By Bill Disbrow SFGate Updated 7:59 am, Thursday, September 21, 2017 Thursday night's Rams-49ers game may be the toughest sell in the history of Levi's Stadium. As of Wednesday, resale tickets were being offered on StubHub for as low as $14 to see the team host the Los Angeles Rams at 7 p.m. That price is just cheaper than buying a pair of $7.50 pretzels through the Levi's Stadium app and comparable to the price of a beer and a hot dog at the the three-year-old arena. According to the team's seat licensing map, the cheapest original face value for any seat is $85. Ticket sale aggregator TicketIQ listed ...

The NFL is praying for a ratings turnaround By Richard Morgan New York Post September 20, 2017 | 10:29pm | Updated s the NFL kicks off Week 3 with Thursday Night Football, team owners, TV networks and Madison Avenue are hoping it can turn around an early-season ratings dip. Ratings in Weeks 1 and 2 were down 12 and 15 percent, respectively, according to Nielsen. To be sure, saturation TV coverage of Hurricane Irma sapped some eyeballs from football during the first week of play. Still, nine of the 13 NFL windows in the season-to-date posted viewership declines, Sports Media Watch reported. Week 2 might have still been disrupted by carryover impacts from the ...
NFL Ratings Down Big on Opening Night Amid Renewed Anthem Protests
Post Date: 2017-09-09 22:09:40 by Tooconservative
The NFL opened its 2017 season Thursday night, in much the same way that it played out the 2016 season. The game featured the team that won the final game of the year last season, the game was high-scoring with plenty of offense, the game featured an anthem protest, and the leagues ratings went down. The game between the Chiefs and the Patriots drew a 14.6 overnight rating on NBC. That rating is down nearly two full points from last years 16.5 number for the Panthers-Broncos opener, and more than three points down from the Steelers-Patriots opener in 2015. Why, the steep decline? While the ratings have clearly trended down for a number of seasons, last nights game ...

Area Man Tells ESPN to Eff Off
Post Date: 2017-04-19 14:44:08 by Tooconservative
Quick point before I get to the humorous content: The "prestige" media has prestige only because people confer that prestige on it. Stop conceding that prestige, and they're not prestigious any longer. A lot of people take pics and videos and post them. The major networks then ask -- for free -- for rights to republish the photos or videos. Most say yes, just because it's "prestigious" to have a media company use your work (for free!) so long as they give you some kind of minor credit at the bottom of the page. Maybe people should start saying "No," or "Yes, if you pay me a lot of money, assholes." Enter Abdul, who took this amusing photo of ...
