NBC just announced that they will show kneelers during the anthem. I haven't watched since early in the season and this just solidified my decision to not watch the Super Bowl.

Dan Bongino is correct in saying, regarding the NFL, that the way they have handled this will become a case study in what not to do in business school.

The cost of ads will be higher like they are every year, but viewership will be down 8-10%. The advertisers will complain that they got a raw deal. They probably bought these ads a while ago.

TV revenues are what pay the high contracts. At some point the league has to say "what you do do on your own time is your business, but on the field, you represent your employer. You may not disrespect the flag and what it represents in this way. "

I haven't watched an NFL game all year, and won't watch the Super Bowl. I don't know who's contending for it.

My suspicion is that the national anthem will be played before the teams come on the field. Is that not the protocol at some games now?

With out watching I will pull for the Vikings because they have no players that took a knee all year, but like Tony I am done with the NFL.

Does anyone else agree that the NFL has forfeited the right to raise the flag and play the Anthem before their games? If the NFL is going to provide media exposure for those who disrespect the flag and the Anthem, why give the NFL the opportunity? Treat the NFL as any other form of amusement, like movies and TV shows, which don't rate any patriotic display. My two cents.
