    Weak 14: Empty Seats Outnumber Fans in Many NFL Stadiums


    This is NOT a pregame photo – you can see players on the sideline. And, for those who aren’t squeamish, this article has dozens of Tweets that show lots of empty seats and a lot of different games.
    The Buffalo Bills said they had 59,119 spectators at New Era Field on Sunday (capacity 71,870 seat maximum) when the New York Jets came to town. Some thought that estimate seemed high when looking at the empty seats.

    The Cleveland Browns also announced their crowd size — 59,392 at FirstEnergy Stadium (capacity 67,895) — as the Browns bested the Carolina Panthers in a 26-20 final. But some photos seemed to show a lot of empty seats:

    Watching the Panthers at Browns. There’s at least 20,000 empty seats there. Is the NFL going under??

    Predicted this at the beginning of the season when some of their idiots started to show disrespect
    for our country's patriotic traditions.

    The NFL did it to themselves via their own stupidity.

    I have no sympathy for all of those over paid stupid jocks that claim to be oppressed.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    Well they ALLOWED those idiots to take over the games with their protesting and disrespecting the fans. so now it paying off.

    DON'T MESS WITH the people who pays for your bread and butter.

    Next I can't wait until all their salaries DROP because of it. that would serve them all right.
    Yep that's why the sleeping Giant of Americans got rid of that thug Obama and his commie hand picked witch Hillary in a pant suit and put in PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    what gets me is these freaking Libs/Democommie cult members truly believe THEY ARE THE MAJORITY when WE JUST PROVED THEM SO WRONG. I LMAO AT THEM

    They are still selling individual Titan's tickets.

    Until recently, ALL tickets were sold, well before the season started.....

    It will take a while for salaries to even level off. But, I think the league is driving towards that day, with their foot on the gas pedal.

    AFTER that, the salaries may begin to drop a bit.

    (This will largely depend on what happens when the major networks "bid" on future NFL broadcasts. My prediction, is that they will end up with something almost identical to what they are currently under. MAYBE a wee bit more, but, I doubt the NFL will see a major growth in their contract revenues. This will find it's way down the ladder, to the Salary Cap. Could even see that shrink a bit)

    Once that happens, overpaid players will be asked to renegotiate, or, they will have to be released. OR, maybe, some teams keep their high-priced players, and release some of the more "blue collar" players on their team. Which is fine, until the inevitable injuries show up.

    OF course, this is all dependent on the players keeping their protests front and center, and, what other idiotic decisions Goodell and the NFL Owners can push through. (Such as, putting teams in London, or, Mexico City......)

    The owners arent talking about! Otherwise they will have to address and take action, pissing off the fans or players!

    If Goodell had not had his fat head crammed up his nether regions, when all this began, the NFL would have:

    A. Required that ALL teams stay in their Locker Rooms, for the National Anthem.

    B. After a week or two, allow players to go out and STAND for the National Anthem, if they chose to, BUT....three would be fines and perhaps suspensions for those who did not stand.

    If the above had been installed, players could, in no way, claim that the "owners are FORCING them to stand for the anthem," while the NFL would have more legal bearing to suspend, and/or fine players for doing so.

    The 'protests' do seem to be dying off, but....a lot of the damage has already been done.

    The WORST damage, is that the protests forced fans to look at the actual COST of an NFL ticket, then compare it to the Value. (Something I am currently assessing....)

    It also encouraged many fans to just skip the televised games and:

    --Go play a round of golf (Might be a LONG time before the NFL gets those fans back, if ever...)
    --Go see a movie.
    --Do house chores.
    --Spend time with the family.....
    --LOTS of other opportunities and choices.....

    The fact that the NFL is still pretty full of itself, will not help them.

    The only good thing about football anymore are the cheerleaders. The players are no longer gentlemen.
