Trump Effect: NFL Ratings Continue to Tumble, Down Almost 10 Percent Over Six-Week Period

Well, the ratings are in for the National Football League and I bet you can already guess what the verdict was after this national anthem nonsense. Yep—that’s right. After a six-week period, ratings are down almost 10 percent. It seems ‘take a knee’ syndrome that hits some players when the Star-Spangled Banner is played has driven fans away.

    why is it down only 10 percent?

    • Super tankers take a long time to turn. Give it a bit more time.

  • I’m done eating.

    It’s OK to kill the goose that laid those golden eggs.

    I wouldn’t call it the Trump effect, but that Americans who are not afflicted with profound hate for their country have had enough. In fact I say there is no Trump effect concerning anything. Grassroots Americans made it clear what they wanted and Trump listened to them during the campaign. He is not responsible for the movement and did not start it, but now he symbolises it.

    Just how is a big house, nice car, great clothes etc etc seen as oppression? This guys double standards are amazing.
