That sucks. It should have been a much bigger hit than that.

I suspect that if the MSM is noting a 10% drop, the actual drop is probably closer to 20%.

10% down from last year, and last year was a huge drop off from the year before.

Plenty of people breaking tradition. NFL games on Thanksgiving have weeded their way into the culture.

True, it's why the NFL had such a monopoly, it has become expected that on Thanksgiving, people get together, eat, drink, and watch football.

You could say their ratings were decimated.

You actually used the term properly. Most people don't. Have an upgoat.

I have never seen it used any other way, although, I rarely see it used. Can you give an example?

That Dallas game looked pretty sparse. Lol. It was the first time I watched TV in a while. I still don't see how people can stand those damn commercials. They are mind numbing.

TV commercials in general. I weaned myself off of TV a few years back. Stayed away for about a year while traveling and living in an RV. When I settled back into society and the TV came back, the commercials were so jarring. Got to keep you addicted to materialism.

I know! I have not had a TV in about 10 years. It is really difficult to watch. I get really annoyed, and then I don't understand why others are not annoyed. It is really bizarre.

I'm just going to go out on a limb and say it's part-boycotting, and part-"The Giants are a steaming pile of shit this year and the Redskins are a wild-card team at best, and even that's a stretch".

It will be genuinely interesting to see what the post-season ratings look like.

I have a question, as dumb as it be, how do they know how many people what's a game, besides the Neilson, bullshit ?

Modern cable boxes report everything. Your high speed internet comes in on the same line. If your computer can send data on that line, so can the cable box. Does your TV prompt you to press a button if you leave it on the same channel for 4 hours then turns off of you don't? That is so the cable company can save on paying royalties.

This is such a simple fix, and I'll give it to the NFL for free: First, fire Goodell. he is the worst commissioner in the history of the league. Next, inform every player they will stand with their right hand over their heart and their helmet tucked into the crook of their left arm. Failure to do so will result in a suspension for that game. Hit the locker room. Finally, apologize to the fans. The league needs to let the fans know that they made a moral and financial error by allowing a bunch of millionaire thugs to disrupt an entertainment from which they draw their abundant paychecks delivered BY US. WE do not want our country disparaged by you, we do not want our entertainment by you, and we do not want to be preached to BY YOU. never forget, you may be employed by a certain team, but we, the fans, determine your paycheck. Now shut the fuck up and play some damned football.
