NFL will be tainted for another season

The NFL’s anthem policy problem is not going away, according to former Super Bowl champion Burgess Owens.

“This is about a global reach,” Owens told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co.” on Monday. “It’s about a corporation that understands that they need to get past the American market.”

NFL free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick sparked the debate in 2016 when, as a member of the San Francisco 49ers, he refused to stand for the national anthem to protest social injustice.

Despite a steep decline in viewership and ad revenue over the past two years, league authorities extended Commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract. In Owens’ opinion, they “have to demean the NFL brand” in order to appeal to a global audience.

Well as a part of the "global audience" I'm sick of hearing of this crap. Make all of them stay in the locker room. Boom, problem solved.

Quite the opposite actually. The fanbase abroad is steadily growing and the NFL make a lot of money on the Gamepass and on merch. The London games are always sold out.

NFL Europe set its attendance record in its last season with an average of 20 000 per game witch shows it was much more than a novelty. Especially the german teams still have fanclubs with yearly gatherings.

Re: NFL will be tainted for another season

I just cancelled my hundred dollar a year Game Pass subscription. I will watch pirated games online and listen to radio streams and that'll be that.
