    Should NFL Sweat Lower Ratings For Season Debut And 'Sunday Night Football'?
    Keep it up everyone. It's having an affect!

    Just like he does everything. He will cherry pick words from the article to make a point, so long as idiots just read the headline.

    Goodell: "NFL...was...most watched show. NFL...is...more entertaining...good news. 13% (increase)."

    Great. They'll have to manufacture another cheating scandal to blame the Patriots on to get the ratings up.

    it's hilarious to watch the OP give up the actual watching of football in the name of hand-wringing over everything else

    It's not just certain Pats fans not watching the games. There are people boycotting the NFL because of all the kneeling instead of standing for the pledge of allegiance. I don't know how you sit/kneel on 9/11 (Dolphins). That's too much. And this is coming from a black man.

    I do not understand your thinking here... enlighten me. So kneeling during the anthem is okay any other time beside 9/11, because other American deaths aren't as important as 9/11? Deaths during revolutionary war, civil war, WWI, WWII... not worth standing for? Or are you saying something else?

    Or perhaps people are realizing how the NFL is great at covering up incidents like domestic violence (Josh Brown now is the K for the NYG, again; we all know the Ray Rice story) but make mountains out of molehills when it comes to players who actually don't beat their spouses up.

    I'm aware of all those things and know those wars were important, but 9/11 hits harder because I was actually around for that. I've watched video after video, read article after article about the towers falling, people jumping from windows, fire fighters walking in the buildings and never coming back out with several beepers beeping endlessly (Letting fire fighters safe outside know many were still inside, crushed to death.). It just hits me harder. No disrespect for any of those events that happened in a farther past.

    I'd laugh at this if I was not halfway scared that this could happen.

    I file it in the same folder with "NFL making sure the Pats only get a 2nd rounder if they want to trade Jimmy G."

    So then in 100 years it will be okay to kneel or sit during the 9/11 anthem, because it won't be recent anymore? Just trying to understand.

    Okay, you win. You made a huge leap in me saying it was disrespectful to kneel on 9/11 when the week 1 games were played specifically on 9/11 to nothing before 9/11 is important, so they can sit/kneel whenever, just not that day. I'm done here. I'm sure you can understand that. And if you can't, it doesn't matter to me one way or another.

    And for the record, I'm not and never was a supporter of Kaepernick kneeling in the first place. I don't see what it solves, and I still feel he was only doing it for attention because he's not the starter and his career is going down the drain.

    Steeeeer......

    Even though numbers are down, look at this.

    IMG_20160913_165611.jpg

    NFL* is still king of all sports and it's not even remotely close. This is why Dickdell will continue to keep his job. As long as the numbers are like this, it's a wrap.

    People like to tune in to watch or listen to people they hate. How many of you bozos listen to Felger and Mazz and then complain about them?

    The Patriots without Brady aren't the same draw.

    When someone criticizes your boycott or tries to belittle you, just remember that your impact on the ratings (one) is more than the combined impact every fan on this message board has in regards to the wins and losses of the New England Patriots (zero).

    I bet people thought our game would be a blow out so they watched something else...Brady being there would of upped the ratings. Great decision Goodell.

    Let me first start by saying that I do NOT support Kaepernick in any way, shape or form

    But the fact that it was 9/11 doesn't really mean anything or change anything.. He stood for the solute/tribute to the troops and then took a knee once the national anthem started, so he didn't disrespect the troops or the 9/11 memorial..

    I think hes an idiot, but at least hes consistent
