The NFL is a sinking ship.
Not only are fans boycotting the league because of their anti-American protests, but even the players and owners are growing sick of each other.
And Fox News’ latest poll shows just how bad it’s gotten.
We have seen over the last 8 weeks that the NFL is struggling on a monumental level.
But how else should it be when spoiled multi-millionaire athletes complain about a country that has given them everything?
They should consider just how tone-deaf their protests may look to the blue-collar worker who breaks his back all week and looks forward to football Sunday. Not to mention the blatant disrespect it shows to their family members who fought and died for this country.
But what’s the most insulting is that these NFL players can’t even see how distasteful their actions are.
People fought and died so you could play a sport. What’s difficult to understand here?
The Daily Caller reports:
“A Fox News poll released Thursday shows the NFL’s popularity has plummeted 18 percent since 2013, with the biggest drop in favorability among Republicans.
The survey found that 46 percent of the viewers had a positive opinion of the NFL while 41 percent viewed the league negatively.
In comparison, just four years earlier, 64 percent of the people had a positive view while 19 percent had an unfavorable one.
Additionally, results show that the group of people who have soured the most on the league were Republicans.
The poll found that Republicans favorability had dropped by 37 percent, independents by 14 percent and Democrats by 6 percent.
“If the NFL were a political candidate, alarm bells would be going off in campaign headquarters,” Democratic pollster Chris Anderson — who conducted the Fox News poll with Republican pollster Daron Shaw — explained.”
The reports on the NFL’s declining television ratings have been bad enough.
But stadium attendance has been abysmal as well, which is something you can physically see to grasp just how bad this has become.

If the NFL implodes, and it’s looking like it will, it doesn’t seem like many people will miss it.
