WokeFL Ratings for Sunday Night Wokeball Plummet 23%, 28% In the Demo

Are you ready for some WokeBall?

Even with the usual ratings gold of Jerry Jones' team on the field, the NFL and NBC didn't get that win -- at least not in the early numbers. Despite two teams with big national followings, SNF snared a 4.7 in early ratings among adults 18-49 and 14.81 million viewers last night.

In numbers certain to change, that's a fall of 28% in the demo and a hard decline of 23% in sets of eyeballs from the early numbers of the the September 8, 2019 SNF season debut. While the early Nielsen data lacks West Coast numbers -- kind of important when you have a team from the Los Angeles market in the mix -- his result is going to be hard pill for the NFL and NBC to swallow.

CBS sports had earlier told its broadcasters to avoid commenting on the protests attention gambits, because people are sick of them.

What happens on the field will be discussed by CBS announcers. What isn’t happening on the field will not be. Almost like it should be.

First reported by Forbes, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus gave his broadcasting team clear directives to not interject personal opinions on Black Lives Matter, kneeling, social justice of any kind during the broadcast.

"Our announcers on site at the games are not gonna condone, they're not gonna condemn what’s going on," McManus said. "They're going to report it and they're going to move on.

"We need to thread the needle just the right way, because there are people who are tuning in just to hear about football. So we need to make sure that we don't overdo the emphasis on what's going on in our country, but we’re not gonna ignore it."


I don't think that'll be enough.

31 The CBS affiliate in Seattle obviously didn't get the word as in their Pregame Show the night before, the asshat announcer, when discussing the booing at the KC game, said "apparently the fans haven't learned enough."

I've posted this before but I'm still pissed. Its a given I won't watch any games, but I sure as hell won't be lectured to by some little twerp from Seattle.

Posted by: Diogenes at September 14, 2020 04:10 PM (axyOa)

32 The damage has been done. I watched a bit of the game Thursday. I tuned in specifically before to see what bullshit they would pull. One Chiefs player kneeled (hope they get rid of him), the moment of unity has caused tons of arguing back and forth here. I didn't hear any booing.. none.. zilch..nada. Some say it was fans booing the Texans as they came onto the field and spilled over in the unity moment. I heard and saw various clips and definitely heard booing so idk.. weird I didn't hear it. I think it depended on where you were and what mics picked up.

34 I have never understood the continued interest in watching grown men playing games for a living. This is particularly true for FB and BB. I would have expected people to get bored after seeing a ball dunked or run across a goal line a few hundred times.

72 So, does CBS think sports commentators and announcers matter? Whether they condemn or condone has no relevance. The actions of the league, the teams and players do matter and do have relevance. If the announcers mention it or not, or support it or not, makes no difference whatsoever.

Do they think that so long as the announcers don't inject their opinions that I will fail to notice that everyone else is? Do they think that I'll fail to notice that the league and the teams and most of the players are against me and my way of life just because the announcers don't try to explain it to me?

Why do they think this would work? My beef isn't with the announcers. It's with an entire structure and edifice that hates me and wants to destroy my country and subjugate me under their boots.

34 I have never understood the continued interest in watching grown men playing games for a living. This is particularly true for FB and BB. I would have expected people to get bored after seeing a ball dunked or run across a goal line a few hundred times. Maybe that is finally coming to pass and people are ready to go on to something else.

People get personally invested in "my team", like they have a stake in the outcome (some do by gambling).

And, yes, sometimes its nice to chill out and watch for some amazing feats of athleticism. Not sure what Jet fans get out of it though.

96 >>What happens on the field will be discussed by CBS announcers. What isn't happening on the field will not be. Almost like it should be.


Husband had the tv on when football coverage started - not sure which channel, and volume was low. However, there was so much signaling going on with their shirts/hoodies - "Demand Justice Now" "End Racism" and others I can't recall. This was all the non-football player people on the field before the game started. Then they left the field and went to the announcer desk where some guy was speaking, where his name should be it said something like "Social Justice Expert" or something, it was clear he was their designated SJW/Race expert there to lecture, likely for every game, throughout the game.

Won't be comforting at all. It's the "new normal," die-hard football fans, and they're here to keep reminding you how much of a racist hater you are in need of their guidance/harassment in order to adopt to their thinking.

Forget the money. In order to even begin to get me to watch, the NFL must have a ZERO tolerance policy of political activism on AND off the field.

It is a privilege to play for the league and you will obey its rules. And the league is going to be 100% pro-American.

If it means cutting loose every single player and staring over again, so be it.

Twins born 3.5 yrs ago and I've only seen 1 game since then. Circumstance happened just in time, I don't miss it at all and don't really see myself ever being interested in it again.
This is the same league that forbid Dallas from wearing a patch to honor murdered cops. Now they're falling over each other to paint political slogans on everything. Love how the left considers this "unity" - sure in the old brownshirt enforced kind of way. You don't think there's a single player who would go stand for the anthem on the field like they were doing a year ago? They've just learned to fall in line and shut up Drew Brees style. Sad really.

Sports, when it's honest and done right, is uplifting. It's about pushing the limits of human strength, endurance, and skill -and taking risks- to achieve a measurable (if arbitrary) goal.

The action is generally enough to keep interest, it's more interesting than watching paint dry, but what keeps people coming back are those moments where someone does something that's flat out amazing, or when you have a living legend at their peak performance.

NASCAR became boring when it ran out of Earnhardts. Baseball's giants had feet of clay - the latter day home run kings used steroids. Football has become so formulaic that there's almost no innovation left.

Add a layer of spoiled millionaires preaching about privilege, and all the things that draw people are gone.

The NFL draws low-life thugs and criminals like flies to shit. It's no wonder that anti-Americanism will be the chosen hill that they die on.

Tax-exempt organization , my lily white ass.
And football as a whole is fucking over college sports. Colleges and universities are using COVID as an excuse to get rid of their other sports teams in order to shore up the Holy D1 Cult of Pigskin. The NFL machine politics has reached into the NCAA and wrecked college careers that might not have been pro-level but were certainly important to the kids who played and paid for college through full and partial scholarships.

There was something admirable about athletes that worked hard and became role models. Underdog stories, great strategies lots of things to emulate and respect.


The NFL , NBA and MLB destroyed that positive civilization-enhancing model , flipped the bird to it's fans and showed it's true rotten colors to the rest of America.

297 First time in 11 years I have not had NFL Network RedZone going on my TV from 1pm to 8pm.

First time in 20 years I have not had NFL games on my TV from 1pm through the Sunday night game.

First time in 18 years I have not been involved in any fantasy football leagues, after being involved in no less than 5 each of the last 10+ years.

That said, I could tell from my former league going on without me as well as family and friends all talking about football on Facebook and in call-in work meetings today that I am apparently the only one within my social circle who has given up on professional sports.

Disappointing. Both that (1) I now know that sports leagues supporting anti-America, Marxist, Black-supremacist, anti-cop-bigoted domestic terrorism is not enough to drive them away from supporting them and (2) it's frustrating to no longer have that bond with them to talk about anything regarding sports.

This is not something to rejoice. This is just another bit of American culture that the Left has happily destroyed. It is another way of bonding family, friends and coworkers together than has now been broken. And I hate that.

You may not care about sports, but millions of others do. Or did. And this is a sad time for all of them.

I don't think we'll go back again - not so long as there is a mask requirement. I can stream it at home without a mask. I can wait.

The Left has put the scare out on any gathering, so that's it for sports. For music. For movies. Wine festivals. They are done.

And all cause they hate Trump.

I believe he defeated a long time republican...can someone verify that?It is what they tried to do with Beto and that other young guy , I think in Georgia?.

328 I saw a headline, Albert Pujols hit his 660th career home run, tying Willie Mays for 5th all-time.
-----------------
Pujols doesn't juice but yeah the balls are juiced. But then, Mays faced poorer pitchers for the most part, and tired out pitchers who didn't get as quick relief or amazing scouting. So I think its a push.

I mean Pujols is an amazing player and I give him all respect, but not enough to make me want to watch baseball. Especially this asterisk year.

Tell me about it. I quit D&D because of how commercial it is now. It has no authenticity, and I firmly blame the scripted abomination known as Critical Role for that.

Another way Critical theory has screwed everything up.

Amusingly, the sports leagues are trying to market to the same people (blue hair leftist freaks) who think Critical Role is awesome. Good luck with that. The only thing they have in common is expensive trappings and wasting many hours of your life watching others play the game.

Speaking of the US Open, Naomi Osaka, who won the women's final, is dating a black rapper/activist from L.A. and the announcers for that match, especially Chris Evert, couldn't stop gushing about Naomi's bright future as a civil rights icon. If you've ever heard Osaka speak in public, you have a sense of how ludicrous a proposition that is. I have no doubt, however, that she will be fully indoctrinated by her boyfriend and probably part with a substantial portion of her income along the way. Somehow, I don't think it will go toward HBCU scholarships.

William Law (d. 1761) did write a treatise against acting and the theatre (I don't know about works of fiction, but I'll take your word for it.) He was much better known, however, for writing "A serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life" which influenced religious thinkers and reformers such as John Wesley and William Wilberforce.

He has poured his heart and soul into it and it has helped our tax base a lot. His kids play there and he wants to experience baseball like he did throughout high school. Some of my fondest memories are coaching and managing my boys in baseball in SW Houston.

To me the best defense of Pujhols is he came up very young like players in the 50's and 60's did, so he had extra years to accumulate stats. Due to service time, which has been around for a while, many players lose a couple-few seasons.


Still his era, all the great HR hitters ended up being users. Either he was the lone exception, or he just never got caught. Being in StL undoubtedly helped him avoid some bad press.

And here is where this is moving - there is a thing, v-tubers, which are virtual people playing video games. Theoretically there are real people playing the game, and there is a cgi avatar - typically a cute anime type girl - on screen playing. Soon - perhaps even now - those v-tubers are going to be AIs. They will really really be virtual.

There is already a virtual video game betting thing, Salty bet, people create the fighters, and they face off as NPCs. Well, maybe people are creating them.

3. The armed Dictatorship of the Proletariat forces everyone to become the same class

Disappointing. Both that (1) I now know that sports leagues supporting anti-America, Marxist, Black-supremacist, anti-cop-bigoted domestic terrorism is not enough to drive them away from supporting them and (2) it's frustrating to no longer have that bond with them to talk about anything regarding sports.

This is not something to rejoice. This is just another bit of American culture that the Left has happily destroyed. It is another way of bonding family, friends and coworkers together than has now been broken. And I hate that.

The left has been salivating for years over the idea of destroying all sports , especially male dominated ones. It's been the equality crap for several decades , capped off with Title IX that is finally starting to succeed in removing mens's sports from college( Minnesota announced last week they are eliminating four men's sports in order to " bring their sports offerings into line with their increased female enrollment"). Then it was allowing transgenders to play on any team they wanted, with this idiocy going up to the Olympic and international level. CTE became a big driver of contact sports being dumbed down, rule changes, most of them fear of lawsuit based. Now we have Covid eliminating not just fans, but prohibiting many sports from being conducted. BLM was then added to bring in accusations of racsim, social justice, etc. and the entire sports universe and it's corporate money are pounding this at the American people at every event.

I didn't watch any NFL games yesterday, which for me is like a lifestyle change of epic proportions. I was changing channels and saw for a second or two, the end zone of a game with BLACK LIVES MATTER painted on it. The day after two officers were almost shot to death in their car and then their emergency professionals were being blocked from their care by BLACK LIVES MATTER adherents. Until the NFL renounces this evil marxists group, I am done with them.

Is that the one where Greg ended being the hero, because since he couldn't play, he took photos of the game, and took a photo of the receiver a foot out of bounds on the winning touchdown. And the photo was used to overturn the outcome of the game? Or something like that?

Posted by: Chin music at September 14, 2020 04:57 PM (69XrE)

457 Exactly, he's had Aaron numbers, not Bonds numbers. He didn't go from
20 a year to 50 a year and grow three sizes. Remember Brady Anderson
who had a little pop like 5-10 hr a year then suddenly hit 50? That's
how you tell someone is cheating.



But this idea that magically the ability to hit a lot of home runs
ended in 1975 and it can never be done again by anyone no matter what
unless they are using drugs is asinine and childish.
----------
Well I'm not making that argument. There are other ways to tell if you are cheating. Beating injuries and such. The Roger Clemens way. I don't know if Pujhols cheated or not. But since he played in an era where most who put up career numbers did, it shines a negative spotlight on him.

Trump's Right: Drudge Report's Audience Is Down Nearly 40% Year Over Year

President Donald Trump slammed Matt Drudge and his Drudge Report Sunday and Monday, and while it's subjective to argue whether the right-leaning news aggregator has moved away from positive Trump stories, one thing is true: Drudge's readership is down a whopping 38% from last year.

According to Comscore data, the Drudge Report had 1.488 million unique visitors in July 2020 - the most recent month for which data is available. That's down 38.0% from July 2019, when the site boasted 2.399 million unique visitors...

When he was in Denver for the one season he made watching the Broncos fun. You could see the impact he had to the team -- they played better, and they were having fun with a lot of games where they won in the last minutes. His teammates were won over. Tebow always had a guest in the stands, some kid with health issues, so he was there during the post-game giving them the spotlight.

Regardless of what one thinks of his abilities, he was clearly a good influence on the team. Manning did it, too, of course, but it was fun to witness Tebow come in and just make the team better.

You know, nothing serious like cutting off a finger or anything, maybe just cutting off the first knuckle, or maybe the first two knuckles.

Players are often interchangeable, that if you plug this guy in here, he'll be fine, but put him in there and he'll fail miserably.

There were many can't-miss QBs in college who never made it in the pros. As often as not it was injuries, and when it wasn't it was because they got put in a system that wasn't right for them.

Tebow as a unique talent. Most NFL offenses are not designed to work with his kind of talent. Nor were they going to work with Johnny Manziel, even if he wasn't such a self-destructive douchebag.

Just like those stupid "unwritten rules" where they said good QB's needed to be "pocket passers."

Yeah, Mike Vick was LEGS with an uncontrollable cannon for an arm.

Tony Romo showed he was better when he could do his best Brett Favre impression and improvise.

No it was Brady Anderson I was thinking about, he just had the one season. Bonds was so obvious it was painful, as were McGwire, Canseco, and Sosa. I really like McGwire and in the defense of those players it wasn't illegal or against the rules at the time. But they did juice in order to get more power, so its hard to treat them with the same respect as someone like Mays who did it the hard way.

I was a big Tebow fan but I can't agree with this. Belichick gave him a tryout and he just couldn't cut it, and he was someone who would've loved to stick it to the naysayers. Tebow achieved what he did by working his ass off and never loafing, but his skill set wasn't what succeeds in the NFL.

The networks, if their legal departments are worth anything, have permission to cut back on what they pay for those rights if viewership levels drop significantly. It's the money from those rights that allows the NFL to stay in existence. If viewership continues to drop, and the networks can pay less, that's about the only situation that will get the league's attention.

I'm looking at Pujols stats...

From 2001 to 2011, Pujols hit 30 or more HR's, while batting 300 or better every year.

When he moved onto LA, form 2012 to 2019 he hit 30 or more HR's 3 times and he has never batted 300 since leaving STL.

He has also never hit more than 49 HR's.


So he came into the league as a phenom had a ridiculously solid 11 years in STL and has tailed off as he has gotten older.


So unless someone has strong evidence he juiced, he probably didn't.

572 >>>Think about that when the Left comes for something you care -- cared -- deeply about and bonded you with friends, families and coworkers.

I think about it all the time because they already have many times over. This is just sports' turn.

Now I have argued since this hubbub started that Professional sports' First and singular justification that truly made it not immoral to waste all this time and money to watch people play games, was that it acted as a cultural touch point that transcended race, social class, politics, and allowed us to be one people. A vital thing to a Republic.

Once you take that away I personally consider professional sports immoral, and any time or money spent on them as immoral. All that any protesting sports are now is a distraction from just and good uses of your leisure time. It is patently unjust that we spend over 100 billion dollars and God only knows how many bIllinois hours watching sports when they no longer produce anything of societal value.

It's time to end it. As the forces of Evil eradicate all that was good in professional sports, it's time for it to find its place in the trash heap.

And the NFL is dead to me. Worse, as Ace or Someone said in an earlier post - I've already found something ELSE to spend my entertainment time and money on during the weekends. Dialing down the Marxism won't bring me back.

Tommy Petty had great lyrics that summed this up:

Every changed
Then it changed again

The key is the second line. If something changes once, it can be reverted back. But a second change shifts the ground underneath it, there's nothing there to revert.

I'm sure there's a Chem Law on this or somesuch.

I think about it all the time because they already have many times over. This is just sports' turn.

"One source familiar with the investigation pushed back, telling Fox News on Monday that Dannehy "came in for a brief job" and questions surrounding her departure were simply from an "echo chamber trying to make things look bad" for Attorney General Bill Barr."

I think she was retired and agreed to come out of retirement to work on this for a period of time. I"m sure she was reminded daily why she would rather be retired.

590 I'm done, Ace. If the XFL still stays around, I'll buy Battle Hawks gear and wear it around the STL. If they go belly-up, I'll put their stuff in my closet along with my other no-longer-existent St. Louis sports teams and root for the next one to come along. Hell with it.

591 example:

1st Change: your girl leaves you - there is still a change to get her back

2nd Change: she gets married - forget it, it's over

That is where I am at with the NFL and sports in general.

594 Tuned into Sunday Night Fiasco late second quarter, to avoid the
wake-ta-tude, and maybe see how the game was going. Had to shut off the
sound in under 2 minutes. What idiot thought fake crowd noise sync'ed
to the plays on the field was a good idea should be sacked. Then first
silent commercial break was some BLM propaganda, off went the channel.



NFL flushed the American audience, now all they have is a bunch of turds floating in the bowl looking for a home.



See ya!

Was it the guy from the Dallas round bouncy spotzball team that said he would not miss any of the fans that didn't agree with his hectoring millionaire players? Said some snide thing like "Bye" or "See Ya".
Gonna be funny when the Marxists tell him to burn another 20% of the fan base with the next big cleansing.

I REMEMBER THAT INTERVIEW!

Jeez!

But I had forgotten it, but great memory man! Wish I had intended to throw his smug statement back onto his irrelevant court, but was unintentional.

Huge points to you CtWaS, picking up on the finer points of the S$%t-storm brewing and tying it together.

Dwayne Johnson( the Rock) and a consortium of other investors bought the XFL out of bankruptcy in August. It was approved and finalized by the bankruptcy court two weeks ago and is now owned by this group. They are planning to play the league in 2021.

597 You know who else was dropped by teams.

Kurt Warner.

Posted by: demoncrat at September 14, 2020 05:37 PM (uomq6)

601 I turned off the National Felons League a few years ago and the one bright spot in my existence was the MLS and hometown favorites Atlanta United which was a winner. But then the MLS got all woke and sadly I have now tuned them out also. My daughter is a rabid 5 Stripes (their nickname) fan and even hoped that we would go to a game one day especially since soccer had been such a big part of my life. I played for over 20 years even some brief stints in the semi pro leagues in Germany, but once politics entered I exited.
I wish I could explain to folks the feeling I got whenever I was on foreign soil and our national anthem would play. I don't care where I went in the world when the first few chords were sounded everybody knew which country it was. Sorry but the whole state of affairs with millionaires telling me what a privileged life I live have never spent a single night in a foxhole, ankle deep in water, freezing, not being able to recall when the last hot meal was is the height of hypocrisy.

So I turned it off.

603 "72 So, does CBS think sports commentators and announcers matter? Whether they condemn or condone has no relevance."

Sports Broadcasting was their "safe school", they all dream of going to MSNBC like WhatsHisName and "changing the world".

Kinda like when the neighbor puts up a stripper pole in her garage. That's cute dear but you are too old and too fat to be a lapadancer.
