SAD! NFL Stadiums Virtually Empty During Week 11 Of Kneeling Backlash

NFL stadium-crickets are getting a workout during week 11 of a massive boycott by fans turned off by players refusing to kneel during the National Anthem.

The kneeling started 18 months ago when now-unemployed former 49’ers QB Colin Kaepernick’s refused to stand during the anthem – stating “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people, and people of color.”

“To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street, and people getting paid leave, and getting away with murder.”

After President Trump commented in September that NFL players should be fired for kneeling during the national anthem, it sparked a nation-wide kneeling phenomenon across the league.

Aaaaand now stadiums are virtually empty… 

Pissed off patriotic fans across the nation have responded to the kneeling controversy by simply not giving the NFL money.

“Wow. I have never seen this many empty seats here before. John Mara must be thrilled. #GiantsPride,” tweeted Giants fan Kevin McCleerey. 

Minutes before kickoff, the New York Giants’ official Twitter account tweeted footage of a very empty stadium. 

In Cleveland, it was the same story

Indeed, the entire NFL seems to have that empty feeling

Sad!

    Starting to think this is all planned. Some kind of fucked up look at what we can do and not give a shit. Lunatic overlords pissing on the people with no fear or care in the world. Burning there own biz to the ground as a pagan ritual of sorts.

    The crash that so many have expected is actually taking place in NFL ticket prices.

    You can’t be serious. Giants fans aren’t going to games because they’re terrible lol. Nothing to do with protests.

    Really? MetLife Stadium looked pretty packed a year ago. Granted they’re having a shitty season.

    It’s nice to see that not all americans are stoopid snowflakes that go along with the NFL cultural marxist boolshit and simply stay home and watch something else to distract themselves from the politically correct life that’s forced down their throats daily by dishonest joornalists.

    How it looking in Dallas tonight?

    Empty?

    I’m not entirely sold that the low attendance has to do entirely with the kneeling controversy.

    Correlation doesn’t mean causation. IM not sayingthat it has nothing to do with but there’s likely to be other factors at play.

    Jesus Christ did you even read the article you linked to?

    “First and foremost, the NFL is driven by season-ticket sales and tickets purchased prior to the start of the season.

    attendance figures do not necessarily tell us how many people actually attended the games. Since 2005, the NFL has encouraged teams to report “tickets distributed” as opposed to the actual number of fans that pass through the turnstiles. Tickets distributed includes tickets sold and tickets given away (e.g. charity donations).”

    @reversion, I dont even know why you take such pleasure in ridiculing yourself. Business Insider? Really? That fucking zionist rag of a publication you quote here? That zionist filth Axel Springer SE owns 88% and that POS CIA plant WashPoo Beezoos owns the rest of the shares. WTF? Are you really that proud of being a filthy marxist to rely on slimy zionist sources to make a worthless point?

    The NFL is done. Besides CTE it is a boring product that takes 4 hours to complete one hour of actual game time. And now the employees have decided it was a good idea to spit in the eye of the customer. Keep in mind slap didn’t start his protest over black Americans slaughtering each other in droves. He falsely claimed black Americans are routinely murdered by police in order to make himself socially relevant since he was stinking up the field. Some people say “well he threw 16 TD passes”. Ok that’s one touchdown per game? Wow that will really scare the defense.

    Look at the NFL TV ratings. Then come back and tell me how great they are doing and how there has been no trend downward this year after the protests.

    On an anecdotal level, I used to watch NFL football sometimes. I would always watch the Super Bowl even on years I was too busy to catch a lot of the regular season. I played some fantasy football at one time which is how they propped themselves up last time they tanked.

    This year, I have no idea what is going on in the NFL since those protests. I will not watch a single game. I have very little interest in even the Super Bowl. I don’t think I’ll ever watch NFL football again, ever. They can all take their bullshit SJW crap and go fuck themselves.

    This is total bullshit. Chicago stadium was packed yesterday. I’m having a great time with my 11 year old son who has brought me onto the Lions fan base for the first time in my life. Before then my brother and I used to fall on the floor laughing as we enjoyed what was a total cluster fuck of a Lions team under old man Ford. Now his 90 something widow has control and they are kicking ass. Ford field sellouts every game. Exciting as hell. I’m not even thinking about this kneeling shit. Biggest problem for NFL is the refs. They suck !!

    90 thousand in attendance at Cowboys Stadium last night. When games are good even flag-waving Texans show up. Problem is that so many teams are sucky this year.

    It’s you versus facts and reason again.

    Again I will take facts and reason.

    Why anyone would have any interest in this stupid game to begin with is beyond me. Forget about the whole kneeling controversy. Anyone still interested is obviously a cuck or a commie.

    Guys, attendance is calculated by tickets sold, not actual people who showed up. Season ticket holders buy before the season starts and are counted as “attendance” regardless of whether or not they go to the games.

    I’m sure some stadiums will remain packed. Maybe Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ threat to bench kneeling players was a factor?

    No.. Cowboys vs. Eagles was important game .. Fans dont give a shit about kneeling if their team is in the playoff hunt.

    From the Yahoo article:

    ” The NFL’s attendance figures reflect actual turnstile count, not tickets distributed.”

    Now you may think that this reporting is wrong, possibly the result of a pizza shrouded, false flag operation, connected to the Clinton Foundation.

    I await your evidence.

    Also:

    “You don’t hear about no-shows too often because the Steelers are one of only two teams in the NFL, along with the Giants, who base their attendance count on the number of people who actually attend the game. All other teams base the count off the number of tickets sold, according to the Tribune-Review.”

    So your best evidence is an article written 12 years ago?!

    A lot has happened since 2005.

    And how does an article about attendance problems during the redmeat God and Country days of 2005 support your claim?

    *TILT*

    Try again, you might get lucky. If you do, I will acknowledge it.

    Yeah…2014…that was pretty long ago, too. Also article specific to Steelers. Also article indicates Steelers report actual attendance at turnstile, not just tickets sold.

    So what was your point again? That in 2014 other teams reported based on sales? That’s it?

    Pardon me for asking, but what does that have to do with how many bodies were in the seats yesterday, in 2017?

    Unless something has changed in 36 months regarding attendance figures, the fact that only two teams count actual attendance stands.

    Several more recent articles have pointed out that “attendance figures do not necessarily tell us how many people actually attended the games.”
