#1 I wouldn't be surprised if after the season the NFL loses another 13% in viewership after the protests and the new shitty rules in effect.

Football isn't fun to watch anymore and people are reacting accordingly.

Next step, full streaming of all games and those that complain about how the NFL is run being called racists and white supremacists. NFL loses another 25% viewership for the next year.

#2 Pro football has got to be losing a lot of money because of so-called SJWs. Are they trying to get rid of pro football? Have these players looked around? 70% of the players in pro football are black. Viewers of the game and sponsors have created a large number of millionaires in pro ball who are African Americans.

#3 I don't think they want to get rid of pro football. Just flay it, stuff the skin with tampons, and parade the token.

#4 Attack of the "2's": Season is too long, games are too long with all of the Replay Officials, Too many commercial breaks, Too much social commentary by the color commentators, and Too much color commentary in the game ("it is not radio, shut up every so often!"). Too much crewing with the Official Rules by the Competition Committee every single year...

Any one or two could be ignored but the sum of all of theses is approaching a Perfect Storm.

#5 The Spanos's moved my SD Chargers team of 50+ years to become a renter in LA. F*ck them in the ear for the rest of their ownership. I did enjoy getting a Fantasy Football email update from ESPN - listing Keenan Allen of the San Diego Chargers
