Uh Oh.... Veterans Day NFL Weekend Boycott A Flop?

See for yourself My fine fellow Americans Wink Roll Eyes

And it isn't even playoff season Wink

Quote:

Fans angry with the NFL and its protesting players called for a boycott on Veterans Day weekend. But other fans showed up to Sunday’s games, and in greater numbers than they had averaged all season.

NFL players protesting during the national anthem have drawn the ire of a significant segment of the fanbase, upset at what they believe is disrespect for the flag and military members’ sacrifice. Almost half, 49 percent, of respondents in a recent poll said they believed the protests were disrespectful to the flag. Many fans have said they would boycott the NFL, and loosely organized movements on Twitter and Facebook sought to flex patriotic muscle by boycotting the entire slate of games this holiday weekend.

However, the numbers don’t indicate that any boycotts, if indeed they happened, had a meaningful numerical effect. In fact, total attendance at the eight early games on Sunday, as reported by the NFL, was up about 1 percent over season averages.

Well so what? Generally these boycotts don't work anyway. This business about boycotts already came up over a year ago concerning a list of NFL sponsors. If people really want to hurt these guys, the answer isn't simply a boycott. It would take a shift in attitude towards professional sports such a football across the board. In other words people's interest would have to shift away from pro sports. If there were enough people to simply say "Screw it" with professional sports, using the time for other interests, "now that" would be a big blow.

That's a joke. This entire NFL debacle was a squirrel. It was shit before and got inflated by people looking for something to complain about and use to deflect discussion from what mattered. This was nonsense from the start and was engineered to hoodwink idiot right-wingers and the dipshit media.

Don't know about that. But as I talked about earlier boycotts generally don't end up producing the intended results. Not saying none of them ever work at all. But they tend to be few and far between.

No, it's just stupidity for stupid people who need something trivial to be pissed about.

If it's not a conspiracy, why did you say these things?
