Ah, Breitbart ...

When was the last time any channel showed the singing of National Anthem during a regular season game? I don't remember nothing but commercials until kickoff. And why is it that no one is offended networks show commercials during the singing of the National Anthem? How disrespectful is that?

And why would people turn to the channel to begin with, if they know there will be someone kneeling down during the singing of the National Anthem?

it is not brand saturation (MNF, TNF, SF, 24x7 channel).
It is not the demonstrations of greed (pink October, charging for Armed Forces "salutes", London games).
It is not gross mishandling of social issues.
It is not bad product on the field.
It is not atrocious officiating.
It is not the perception (now more than ever) of games being fixed.
It is not that the Commissioner is now even turning on the sacred cow (Brady and the Pats).
It is not the web packages that allow to watch games the next day.
It is not the proliferation of "alternate media" which Nielsen doesn't get to count.
It is not the proliferation of fantasy football-only fans, who'd watch the redzone channel or follow stats on the web.
Not even a compelling MLB postseason...

No. Nothing of that matters. It is that very few players kneel down during the singing of the National Anthem, which is not even televised...

Yeah, makes sense.

BTW, overall, NFL ratings have been going down for a while. It's not new.

'Cause the simple man pays the thrills, the bills and the pills that kill

I haven't watched a game through a regular TV channel since 2014, but the great majority of regular season games, it's talking heads in studio, then a few secs from the booth to introduce the game calling crew, cut to commercials, then back for kick off, unless there was a "tribute" to the Armed Forces.
