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.

FIRST YEAR OF CENTRALIZED REPLAY A SUCCESS, SAYS ACC

The ACC’s Football Replay Center is a Winner.

For the moment, ACC league Coordinator of Football Officiating, Dennis Hennigan, seems happy with the way Collaborative Instant replay has been used in its first two seasons; of course, not everyone will agree with his assessment.
