It is no secret that golf is a popular pastime amongst many professionals, and it seems that is also true for elite athletes

Why is Golf the Sportsman’s Sport?

Sacramento Kings Social Media Night At Golden 1 Center Powered By Panasonic USA

NFL National Anthem Protest Affecting Ticket Sales And TV Viewership

NFL ticket sales and TV viewership numbers are being affected by the Constitutional rights of their players to kneel or sit for the National Anthem in unity as a sign of protest towards racial inequality and police brutality but the data according to brokers indicate it is not much, if at all. Ticket revenue while significant is not the lifeblood of the $14 billion business rather it is the billions of dollars paid for television from ESPN, NBC, CBS, and Fox, and now you can throw in Amazon Prime video online streaming during Thursday Night Football.
