As a fan, I thought the Eagles/Pats was a good matchup. I thought it would draw viewers.  :nono:

 

The drop in attendance at games and viewership is one of the big stories in the NFL for last season.

I'm sure the owners are worried and wondering what to do.

"For 17 years, we could point to No. 52 and tell the other players: 'Follow his lead. Practice like Ray practices. Prepare like Ray prepares. Be a great teammate like him,'" Ravens general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome said in a release from the team. "It was our privilege to have him as a Raven. We are all better for having him here. His play on gamedays speaks for itself.

"Even in that small group who have the honor of being a Hall of Famer, Ray stands out. When you talk about the great players of all time, no matter position, he is among the greatest of the great."

They are killing their product.  They can't figure out what a catch is.  They can't keep track of the rules.  Streaming should be better for them.  They know they are real ppl that are really watching. The problem is they can't show the ads bc the industry has not figured out how to pay the actors and such for them.  That should be an easy fix.

I haven't watched a single game this year, and for the first time since as long as I can remember, I didn't watch the Super Bowl. In solidarity with the protest....not THAT protest, the other one; the one people aren't talking about.

A lot has to do with the nation sick and tired of seeing the Patriots in and in that it really did not interest over on the protests going on.

Plus that of wanting to see some other team new like the Jaguars never been in it.
