Like most Americans, I tuned out the Super Bowl. I live in a major city. I don't need to watch television to see dumb lefties doing stupid things in public. And I can see all that without commercial breaks or halftime shows featuring the worst music in thousands of years of recorded human history.
The ratings make it painfully clear that the Kneeler NFL is in trouble.
First of all, in the Patriots’ third consecutive visit to Super Bowl, the matchup in Atlanta on Sunday was the lowest scoring Super Bowl ever, a dubious honor at best. The record had been held by Super Bowl VII, which saw the Miami Dolphins best the Washington Redskins 14-7 on January 14, 1973.
Shown on CBS for the first time since 2016 and with ad spots going for around $5 million each, the Rams’ loss scored a 44.9/68 in metered market results.
To put that in the starkest light of day, that’s a dip of more than 5% from Super Bowl LII February 4, 2018 on NBC in the first round of ratings. On a larger playing field and amidst a call for a boycott of the game due to the league’s “racist” treatment of Colin Kaepernick, Sunday’s metered market result is the worst the Super Bowl has done in the early numbers since the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals on February 1, 2009.
Oh sure, it was the pro-Kaepernick crowd of lefties who usually watch soccer that was boycotting, not the NFL's core fan base of Americans
