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. The Sports Techie community blog is a firm supporter of this issue...

Sports Gambling May Soon Be Legal Outside Las Vegas

Sports Gambling May Soon Be Legal Outside Las Vegas – Sports Techie blog.

Sports betting and gambling may soon be legal outside of Las Vegas perhaps by next year in states like New Jersey from all indications. NBA commissioner Adam Silver to former MLB commish Fay Vincent are making statements indicating they are betting on this sea of change happening  in the near future even though an ongoing lawsuit by the leagues, NCAA and the United States Justice Department says otherwise.
