Those pix of the Jacksonville Jaguars and their very empty stadium explains why we saw them apologize so profusely to the local military in their area for taking a knee when they played in London (but standing for God Save The Queen, astonishing even the Brits).

Flew the banner for 2 hours, that couldn't be cheap.

He was totally PO'ed.

Roger Goodell, "We believe everyone should stand for the National Anthem" | NFL

NFL
Published on Oct 18, 2017

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell speaks to the media at the NFL Fall Meetings.

- - - - - - - - - -

Everyone should attend or watch every NFL football game available in their market.

But they do not have to and, unlike employees who have no constitutional right to free speech at work in their workplace, the people can exercise their constitutional right to freedom of association by choosing not to associate with a corporate entity whose workplace code of conduct permits disrespecting the anthem, the flag, and the country, giving Black Power salutes on the field during games, and running about on all fours in the end zone and simulating pissing like a dog.

We, the former viewers of NFL football, understand the problem and will continue to address the issue. We mean no disrespect to the NFL when we attend the games disguised as empty seats.

GOODELL: "I think we also have to keep focus on this. We have about 6 or 7 players that are involved with this protest, at this point."

Progress is being made. I think we also have to keep focus on this. The average household has less than 6 or 7 viewers of NFL football, at this point, and a growing number have no viewers of NFL football at all. The NFL and the networks have stopped showing the anthem, and the people have stopped going to or watching the games, and that has the makings of a final peaceful settlement of the issue. Keep up the progress, Roger.

I've seen some reporting on projections of declines in network profits over the NFL issue, generally in the range of 5%-10%. It seems that CBS is hardest hit with a decline of 17% but I think the audience leaving them skews older and they will retain a higher proportion of the more desirable 16-54 male demographic.

I gather it is about -17% NFL-wide since the beginning of last year, -7.5% this year, and CBS is down about 17% this year.

Hardest hit should be the Sunday, Monday, and Thursday night games which only feature the home team for two markets.

Overall, the viewership is on a continuing downward trend, and stadium attendance is getting embarrassing. That costs in tickets, parking fees, beer, hot dogs, and everything else.

If the trend continues, by the end of this season the NFL will have lost over 20% of its viewership since the protests started, and possibly get near 30%. It just takes a 1% drop per week to be drastic. The current trend is greater than 1%.

And the Doctor of Common Sense hits them again.

True enough. I don't think the stadium decline is uniform across the league.

I saw another piece where they discussed how many of these teams had changed cities more than once, leaving hard feelings and losing fans.

Don Surber: NFL cash cow dries up

. . .

But OK, James Brown and CBS are entitled to express their opinion -- even if they would deny the president's right to free speech.

Fans dialogued right back at James Brown, his employer, and the NFL. Ratings are down 17% at CBS for its NFL games.

Part of this is the disloyalty of the league.

The Baltimore team moved to Indianapolis. Cleveland's team moved to Baltimore. Houston's team moved to Tennessee. Oakland's team moved to Los Angeles. St. Louis's team moved to Arizona. One Los Angeles team moved to St. Louis, while the other moved back to Oakland. Then the St. Louis team that moved in from Los Angeles moved back to Los Angeles, and the San Diego team moved to Los Angeles.

There was no reason for these moves. The NFL makes about $100 million a year in profits.

That's per team.

More than $3 billion a year.

The NFL allowed teams to move around for a few million more.

After having the Rams and Raiders leave, guess what? Los Angelenos are not greeting the Chargers and the return of the Rams with open arms. Stadiums are half-filled (maybe) in Los Angeles.

Then the NFL took a knee.

And ratings took a dive.

This hurts the bottom line of the NFL:

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.
We are having a dialogue that James Brown wanted.

. . .

My point being that teams like Steelers and Packers aren't going to see the same empty stadium problem that you see with these disloyal teams who have abandoned their fans more than once.

I think the empty stadiums send a bad image to viewers. So will discounting tickets sharply to try to fill seats. I expect they'll try to hide the empty seats from the viewers by not sweeping the cameras across the stadiums and keeping the empty seats off the TV screens.

I don't think the stadium decline is uniform across the league.

It is certainly true that some stadiums have not featured empty seats.

In Green Bay, demand has greatly exceeded supply for decades, and the season ticket wait list is years long. Until demand drops below supply, a drop in demand only shows up as different people in the seats.

In addition to Green Bay and Pittsburgh, Arizona, Houston, Kansas City, and New Orleans seem to be doing well.

I expect they'll try to hide the empty seats from the viewers by not sweeping the cameras across the stadiums and keeping the empty seats off the TV screens.

They are already doing that. The problem is social media and tens of thousands of cameras in the stands.

I saw that and have been collecting this week's stats and goodies. Note: the Dallas game was reported at 100% capacity attendance. The stands said otherwise. They had a free junk drawing at Cleveland. The winner was an empty seat.
