Do thousands of empty seats at NFL games matter?

From David Hookstead at Daily Caller:

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium.

Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans.

Reality check: Is it possible that guys go to football games to get away from the grind and that asking them to get involved in SJW causes is asking them to go elsewhere? To the extent that they stakeholders don’t see that, the sport may be reaching obsolescence. Where is the crowd going, by the way?

The NFL is the crown jewel of American sports. It can’t be overstated how awful the optics of an empty stadium for a primetime game is. More.

Maybe. Let’s look deeper. Maybe football doesn’t need fans any more.
