I hope NFL comes crashing down hard due to lack of viewers and former supporters of the game. After the game i will see who their sponsors are and not buy anything they sell if at all possible.

Was never a fan of football anyways, only half watched games if I was over at someone else's house. I don't even know who's playing or what Bowl number it is. I also cut my cable service and have not watched regular tv for several years now, I just use streaming services and only watch shows I want. I will not support mainstream tv stations any more.

You are not alone. Kickoff is at 5:30pm central time. The local indoor range near my house is open until 8:00pm on Sunday. It sounds like an ideal use of time to put in a couple of hours at the range instead of watching a bunch of overpaid infantile ingrates body-slamming one another after protesting against the national anthem that eulogized the nation which affords them the freedom to be crapulent pissants.

I'm done watching them and will never watch them again, even if they somehow apologize for the petulant, overpaid children on the field. The NFL _tolerated_ rampant disrespect to the country that feeds their engine. No thanks. Never again.

I am also taking a pretty strong mindset to the sponsors of the NFL starting next year (advertising contracts typically go year to year, so I'm giving advertisers for this season some slack). If somebody is advertising next year, I intend to avoid giving them my money wherever possible.

I'm not watching. I have not watched a NFL game all year. Know what? I didn't miss a dang thing and my blood pressure stayed in check. Those that feel the need to cower during the national anthem are ungrateful bastages. I think they should go play for the Iranian league.

I'm not watching, It's not so much that I am boycotting it's that their actions disgust me and the sport is no longer enjoyable. I am boycotting crappy beer advertisers. Or am I? I don't drink watered down Clydesdale urine anyway,

Kinda funny I mentioned in a Facebook group that I wouldn't be watching. I got criticized for denying the football players their 1st amendment rights especially with a monicker of "Liberty Spirit". The irony of their criticism was hilarious from snowflakes who admittedly never watch the NFL anyway.

Their rights aren't being denied, of course - some of us simply refuse to be forced to listen to or watch it.

Maybe I will join you. You're not far from me, and I've been meaning to visit there anyway.
