Was it the pandering fakewoke ads? The kneeling players? The support for unrest in America by professional athletes? Was it the foreign owned US MSM karening about masks, fear porning, demanding all submit or be declared a racist or terrorist or oh lord, a white nationalist.
Pause for history lesson.
The hypocrisy of the left ( the Nazis were also fervent leftists, the greatest accomplishment of the leftist of the 20th century was convincing the uneducated masses that the Nazis were conservatives) calling people Nazis should never be lost on any human living in reality and living a life based on historical facts.
Now back to the game.
Crowds, fun, America must end. We were never good we are told, the enemy of the people media is in charge and any dissent will be met with an attack on the individual citizen.
Any way you look at it Americans are walking away from professional sports. The proof is in the ratings for the big game, with a marquee matchup and every American outside of Florida stuck at home locked down, ratings were atrocious. They are are down a lot.
Let’s face it, it was all of the above reasons. Americans are done, they don’t want to watch the fake news, don’t watch network TV, we are looking to escape the desire to control our every move. Americans can’t stand the tar and feather mob of fakewokeness, we have figured it out, tossing illogical and usually insane viewpoints at those who live in reality, isn’t working.
The big game included an iconic matchup, the GOAT vs the future of the game. The greatest player ever, against the current greatest. Maybe the best QB matchup ever.
Yet America tuned out. if this wasn’t the matchup, how many more would have tuned out?
And once the greatest player ever retires, the numbers will crash even further. Pro football is headed towards pro basketball rating numbers.
Americans are speaking out about it. From stats available on comment boards, 80% of commenters say politics, fakewokeness, wokeness, etc. caused them to tune out.
It takes a tragedy to end something so many loved with passion for so long. For baseball…. a strike where out of touch billionaires and millionaires wanted more billions & millions. This ended baseball, attendance never recovered from the mid 90’s baseball strike, never will, kids don’t play baseball very much anymore. Ratings are terrible but for a few cities, and only if they have a winning team.
Football was king, but it has peaked too, pro football will never fill stadiums again. Kneeling erased half the fans, the plandemic has erased half of what’s left. Fakewokeness the final nail in the coffin. Pro sports in this country are dying.
America’s golden age of professional sports is over, and based on what it turned into, good riddance.
