President Donald Trump’s feud with the NFL erupted nearly a week ago when he demanded that NFL franchise owners should ‘get that son of a b***h off the field’ when they see players kneeling during the national anthem. Since then, league owners have discovered, to their surprise, that millions of Americans – and more importantly, millions of NFL fans – agree with the president, who encouraged them to boycott the league until it agrees to ban kneeling during the anthem.
So far, evidence suggests that fans have heeded the president’s call to boycott the league. NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football’ last weekend recorded its worst weekly ratings in years. Overall, ratings are down 11% from last year, according to the Associated Press.
