In the 1980s Coca-Cola introduced New Coke-- improved version of regular Coke. People got upset that their favorite beverage was being fucked with. New Coke tanked, the company got the message and went back to the old formula.

maybe if they fail in the short term they'll remember who their core audience actually is and put out a better product that appeals to them. like if your favorite dive bar tried to rebrand as an upscale tapas lounge you'd be pissed and want them to fuck it up.

Of course I didn't watch the fucking games-- that is the point. I don't really care that it was "minimal". I am not associating with this bullshit. If I eventually stop watching NFL games because of all of this, I don't necessarily see that as a negative.

Why do you care if the numbers are down? How does it affect you?

These sports won't fail. Boxing used to be the #1 sport in the country and it is no longer-- but there is still boxing. MLB doesn't draw the TV viewers it once did, but it is still around. Maybe if the NFL owners suffer a little they will cut back the bullshit. That is all this is. Nobody here seriously thinks these sports will fail, but maybe the viewing experience improves. Or maybe not. But they aren't going away

I get that sports fandom is irrational but I like it and would rather bullshit about sports with friends than some gay shit on Netflix, or, even worse, politics

sports seems like a normal thing in an abnormal world. i'm not a huge football fan but i'll watch some of a game every sunday. this past week i didn't watch any. i haven't watched any of the NBA playoffs and barely caught the US Open final. Those are sporting events I watch closely every year.

You'd think with all the shit that's been going on the last 6 months, I'd want a distraction or some normalcy but it seems like those are activities from a world I no longer live in or a life i'm no longer living.

Apparently this year's ratings include out of home viewing. 2019 ratings do not. Nielsen estimates a ~11% bump to sports ratings due to this.

So even with the added boost in 2020, you are seeing big declines

Outkick comes in. Makes a good point.

Worth noting that NFL ratings are tanking despite two things that should be helping immensely: 1.2 million or so fans aren’t attending the games live & out of home viewers are now counted. Yet all the primetime evening games were down massively

Also worth noting that the potential TV viewing audience of people stuck at home with nothing to do has probably never been higher. Yet the NFL still tanked in primetime. My theory: it’s politics. NFL needs to get back to just football as fast as they can or it will get worse.

Or maybe some people don’t like watching fake games in empty stadiums? No energy at all. I’d rather watch House Hunters.

20% YOY decline for the early game. 40% decline for the second ‘double header’ Broncos Tennessee game. Not good, folks

Aren’t MLB ratings down massively? Have they been protesting like the NFL has? Seems like having all these sports on at the same time is drawing away some audience, then another portion don’t like watching sports in empty stadiums, and another group are annoyed by political protests.

Yeah, I think it's the fact that watching sports is inherently social. You follow your teams so you can talk to friends and coworkers and you meet up at bars. If you never see anyone and can't watch sports with friends, then what's the point of rooting for some athletes living in a sealed bubble and playing in empty stadiums to fake crowd noise?

The only people who don't notice anything different are hardcore gamblers.

“Notre Dame played a video promoting racial equality before its game against Duke in South Bend, Indiana. Duke players not only wore the Black Lives Matter logo on the back of their helmets, but the “D” logos on the sides of those helmets, traditionally white, were black. NBC reported the color change was made in support of the BLM movement and that Duke intends to wear that design throughout the season.”

Talking out your ass as usual

Me: “During the game”

You: “Notre Dame played a video promoting racial equality before its game against Duke“

Did they kneel during the anthem on TV? Hold up black power fists? Write the name of felons across their helmets?

BLM logos literally on the Duke helmets for the entire game. Black Ds instead of white. Low IQ bro?

So no. Ok

If you want to compare black helmet decals to what the NFL and other pro sports leagues are doing, go for it

Most bars in major cities are closed or have limited capacity too. These are huge ratings drivers for pro sports.

I agree that some people aren’t watching in protest, but I think a larger group just aren’t interested in hearing fake crowd noise and seeing empty stadiums. Sports are communal. Watching alone at home is boring as fuck for most people.

haven't ratings in general been going down over the last few years? People just don't have the appetite for a three hour game where (((they)))'ve maximized the commercial break time outs.

I think if they made an effort to reduce the game time, it would help the ratings (but that probably is counterproductive to (((their))) goals)

Football is back in America and from the early results, it’s a touchdown for the well compensated NFL and its clearly relieved broadcasting partners.

Cementing a shifting trend away from years of declining ratings, the September 5 official season kickoff game was up double digits over 2018 and Sunday Night Football nudged up a touch over last year as well, even with a 33-3 blowout by the New England Patriots over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

However, the real test had to be how the traditional Monday Night Football doubleheader performed with the New Orleans Saints vs. the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders vs. the Denver Broncos. Now we have the initial results and it’s fair to say, to inject a science motif, the vaccine works.

'Grand Hotel' Season Finale Gets A Boost, 'Bachelor In Paradise' Tops Monday

With a melded average of 8.6 in metered market ratings, ESPN’s flagship football show is up a strong 19% from the September 10, 2018 two-game extravaganza that saw the Detroit Lions and the Raiders come up losers – a far cry from last night indeed. Actually, the 2019/2020 season premiere of MNF was the best the show has done in the early metrics since 2015, which is exactly the kind of takeaway the league wants as their bragging bullet point in an era of small screen downturns in traditional ratings.

not a sports guy, but this confirms my view that lib viewpoints are best expressed as minority rather than majority views.

when it was just kaepernick, that was fine, i didn't agree with it and thought it was dumb, but whatever. that was just one guy on one team.

now that a lot of people are doing it, u can't escape from it, and escapism is the whole point of sports. it would be bad even if it were some stupid corporate slogan but is made much worse since it's a message that directly insults the viewers and tells them that they're bad people.
