IMO people are willing to do a lot for something they identify with.  If you feel like you're part of THE TEAM even if you're just sitting there drinking beer and watching overpaid millionaires play a children's game, you'll sacrifice a lot and spend a lot on merchandise/tickets etc.

Of course once those millionaires start actively insulting you and the country you belong to you stop identifying with THE TEAM really fucking quickly.

You're not taking into account 3 or 4 generations of traditions that families and friends have built around the fandom. That is what's hard to kill.

You're not taking into account 3 or 4 generations of traditions that families and friends have built around the fandom. That is what's hard to kill.

Why do you think it became a tradition in those families?  Hint:  it's not because football players pissed on the flag and had the league commissioner's explicit backing to do so.

If anything, it's the long standing fans who have at least in my personal experience turned away the most.  The cucks and the few libfags that I know personally are the only ones who haven't been offput and left, or those obsessed with fantasy football.  Admittedly it's not the majority, but it's 1 in 3 or 1 in 4 people who went from NFL RAH to "fuck 'em all I'll find something else to do."  And the fairweather fanbase that remains is not one you build off of - they at most spend for the TV package and a jersey and some stuff at Christmas - they don't go to your games regularly and buy season tickets.

I have missed watching maybe 20 games in the past 20 years. But this year I only watched our season opener and haven't watched since. I don't know our record or who won the last game. I haven't worn a jersey on Friday since week 1. So I'm not the one I'm talking about. In fact, when I told my kid I was selling my jerseys she said, "No, you can't do that! You love that team!" (She is not a fan of football.)

My point is that people suck I think they will fall back in line and start consuming football again. They will find a way to justify it individually.

I wouldn't worry about that.  Once kneeling has lost its luster, the ((powers that be)) will find another way to piss off the remaining fans.  Social justice never stops when it's unchecked.  Maybe they'll require that two fags buttfuck each other on the field at half time.  Something to make the whites uncomfortable.

I know a lifetime NFL season ticket holder who gave up on the NFL when they moved the stadium 30 miles away.  I know several people who have given up watching altogether due to the current protest nonsense and nonstop commercials.

Also moving teams is starting to bite them in the ass.  No one is watching either LA team after they left poorer but more rabid fanbase cities.  Several stadiums are embarrassingly empty of fans.

The NFL is still hugely profitable and not going away, but they have done themselves irreparable harm.  If their profit margin is 12% and they lose 5% of their fans, margins suddenly are 7% and no different than a low risk S&P500 fund.

This is MLS so it doesn't matter at all but the Columbus Crew is threatening to move to Austin if we don't build a soccer stadium downtown. The current one is less than 20 years old. Everyone is pretty much "peace bitch" and it's great.

We like the Revolution in Mass, but at the same time the logistics of getting rip-snortin drunk and driving home from Gilette is something we're willing to do for football but not soccer. After the Patriots, you're one DUI case out of several thousand. You'll be fine. There's plenty of other drunk drivers honking their horns who stand out way more obviously than you do. After a Revolution game? You're fuckin screwed. You're one out of a small handful of DUI cases. Your surrounded by soccer moms and sober dads. Good fucking luck. You better go ahead and pop in another stick of gum before stopping off at Dunks for a large iced hazelnut.

We could have an insanely successful franchise if the team had a small stadium in Boston. Shit, they could gouge away at ticket prices and people would go, just because "soccer in the city is cool."

Basically, we totally wanna roleplay drunk English soccer hooligans (and would pay a lot of money to do so) but there's no immersion when you try to do it at an NFL football stadium way out in the suburbs.

Coincidentally, news leaked that this is gonna be this year's Super Bowl halftime show.

I don't think so.  In a world where the economy was good, politician scandals 10x as bad as Watergate weren't routine, and nigger tranny faggots weren't being forced down everyone's throats by a media that's increasingly abandoning any pretense of objectivity that might be the case, but people are getting tired of betrayals.  Cucks and fairweather fans won't care, but people who are getting tired of this shit are already mentally jettisoning anything that they know isn't on their side, and they are the big spenders.  NFL has shown where they stand.

Yeah, people need to get rid of their boomer-era assumptions about shit.  America in 1985 ain't anything like America in CURRENT YEAR.  We've seen multiple stories about how key people in or associated with the NFL are perfectly okay taking a financial hit to ensure negroballers can kneel, chimp out, etc.  Suburban burgers aren't going to go back to sleep and zonk out on handegg, our social betters are going to make sure that isn't going to happen again.

CONSUME is such a stupid Boomer way of looking at the world. the vast majority of people dont spend a fucking dime on the NFL, they watch it on network television and maybe a commercial gets through to them. what the fuck are they CONSUMING?

this is exactly why cord cutting is so terrifying to boomers, CONSUMING television with your parents netflix password?!? error error does not compute bing bong i like ike

Is there a marketing term for people who are immune to commercials, like "expendable in the race war"? I mute them.

I continue to be amazed by the ability of major institutions to commit suicide by SJW, even though I shouldn't be anymore.  The SJW cancer disables the immune system and then destroys the host. 

On a more pleasant note, this is yet another crushing defeat for the Left in the Culture War.  This is a "Bayonet charge against a line of machine guns" type defeat.  And all that it took was a small showing of balls by The President to goad the Liberals into the bayonet charge.  Everything that I have been screaming about with regards to Republicans being gutless pussies who leave countless KO opportunities on the table is being validated.  Trump might be sacrificing his personal approval rating but millions of Americans are getting redpilled in the meantime.  Any Republican in a purple state should make Obamacare, immigration, and the NFL their primary platforms.

If you don't believe any of what this poster said, just take note that fake news is practically in the dictionary already in terms of usage as a colloquialism

Trump did that

Fake news existed at least as far back as the 2000s - that's when I started noticing all the bias - but at that time there didn't seem to be a high level of awareness and the 'reality has a liberal bias' thinktank meme was everywhere.

Now it's common knowledge the media is full of shit

Never, ever let the left forget that they pushed the term "fake news". It was a sister of "alternative facts", but it exploded right in their faces because Trump snatched it away and made it his own.

You and a few of the other... uh, less intelligent people on here keep using that term. Are you referring to Baby Boomers? Do you understand that those are the people who were born in the baby boom after WW2 and they are in their 70s? (I'm typing slowly so you can keep up.) They don't do anything. They vote, but that's really the only influence they have. You seem to worry about them a lot.
