How It Works
NFL ratings are down 20% and the protests are a factor.
Kap's gesture is deeply unpopular because it is ill informed and ignorant. Of course he has a right to do it, but it doesn't mean we need to like it. Or watch it.
I support those who are tuning out. I'm not so up in arms about it, so I' still watch with mild annoyance and less enthusiasm. In general, I'm already annoyed with big sports.
Side note: I also support people dropping off twitter and facebook for it makes the culture worse, imo.
