NFL Already Losing Over $200 Million in Earnings Compared to Last Year

The National Football League TV ratings were already down by over 10{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} over last year before this past weekend of player protests.

That was before over 200 NFL players knelt during the US national anthem on Gold Star Mothers Day.

A 10{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} drop in ratings could equal a $200 million cut in earnings.

A 2016 poll from Yahoo Sports revealed that 44{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} of NFL fans would give up watching professional football altogether if more players followed in Colin Kaepernick’s footsteps by disrespecting the flag.

Now you know why they’re called dumb jocks.
