STUNNING: NFL Tanks – Core Support Drops 31 Points in ONE MONTH
As previously reported, the NFL already lost 2.5 million viewers.
After decades of American tradition of standing at attention during the National Anthem the National Football League started their own tradition last year and allowed players to kneel, sit, or stretch during the National Anthem today at professional football games.
A new shock poll reveals the NFL is now the least liked sport.
In just over a month, after kneeling and outright disrespect of the National Anthem, the NFL went from America’s favorite sport to the least liked sport according to a new poll.
The Winston Poll was of 1,000 registered voters and taken August 29-30 and then again September 28-29 says the Washington Examiner.
Washington Examiner reports:
From the end of August to the end of September, the favorable ratings for the NFL have dropped from 57 percent to 44 percent, and it has the highest unfavorable rating – 40 percent – of any big sport, according to the Winston Group survey provided exclusively to Secrets.
The Winston Poll from the Washington-based Winston Group found that the attitude of those fans went from an August rating of 73 percent favorable and 19 percent unfavorable to 42 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable, a remarkable turn against the sport.
According to the poll analysis, “more critically for the NFL, the fall off in favorables occurred among important audiences. Among males, NFL favorables fell 23 percent, going from 68 percent to 45 percent. In looking at a more specific audience, males 34-54, NFL favorables fell 31 percent, going from 73 percent to 42 percent. Among this group the NFL has a surprising negative image, as it went from +54 percent in August to -5 percent in September.”
According to the poll, baseball had the highest favorables.
Hockey ratings are also up as Americans flock to athletes who respect the flag and stick to playing sports!
The Buffalo Sabres saw a 50 percent increase over last season’s opener this week.
Buffalo News reported:
The Buffalo Sabres had one victory Thursday night – in prime time ratings.
The National Hockey League team’s 3-2 loss in a shootout to Montreal scored a 10.9 rating on MSG over the three hours, which indicates fans are hopeful at the start of the season. The rating peaked at 14.0 for the overtime and the shootout.
The rating was almost 50 percent higher than the 7.4 rating for last season’s opener, a 4-1 loss to Montreal in a game that star Jack Eichel was out with an injury. The Sabres averaged a 6.2 rating for the entire 2016-17 season.
Thursday’s rating was in the ballpark of the 10.7 rating for the 3-1 loss in the season opener against Ottawa in Eichel’s first season in 2015-16.
