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.
