Crapping where they eat
Favorable ratings for the NFL have dropped from 57 percent to 44 percent from the end of August to the end of September.
Meanwhile, the unfavorable rating for the league is the highest among any big sport - 40 percent - according to the Winston Group survey.
In August and September, baseball had the highest favorable rating than any other sport at 63 and 65 percent.
While the sport was already seeing lower TV ratings accompanied vacant seating in stadiums, the accompaniment of the National Anthem protest with outlandish criticism from Trump has caused core fans, men aged 34-54, to turn their attention elsewhere.
Among those fans, the favorable rating went from 73 to 42 percent and the unfavorable rating rose from 19 to 47 percent.
Men entirely have seen a decrease in favorable ratings from 68 percent to 45 percent.
In fact, according to the Winston Poll, every sect of NFL fandom saw a decrease in support.
The news does slightly confirm the prediction made by President Donald Trump at the end of September saying that the continuation of the protest could spell bad news for the league.
It is a privilege to be here in this country. I truly believe that anyone who gets the chance to live and work in the US, even today with its rapidly collapsing culture and infrastructure, is given a winning lottery ticket in life.
