NFL Stadiums nearly empty across America as anthem protest backlash continues (Photos)
NFL HELL: Several Stadiums Nearly Empty As Anthem Protest Backlash Rolls Into Week 7 (PHOTOS)

The NFL likely hoped for a return to normalcy for Week 7, especially after Commissioner Goodell’s call to “move past the anthem controversy,” and address the issue in detail at league meetings last week on Tuesday. Instead, what the NFL got was a return to what has become the “new normal” in the age of anthem protests: empty seats.

Plenty of empty seats visible at the Hard Rock Stadium in Florida as the New York Jets play the Miami Dolphins.

“Swaths of empty seats here post kickoff,” tweeted columnist Armando Salguero.

The Cleveland Browns are playing at home against the Tennessee Titans. Plenty of empty seats to go around.

More empty seats in Chicago as the Bears play the Carolina Panthers.

Business Insider Reports:

But the game also served as a reminder of one of the NFL’s recent woes: poor attendance.

Shots of the stadium, like the one above, made clear that attendance was dismal for the primetime game. Despite claims that attendance was over 70,000, anyone with eyes could see that the stadium was largely empty, with even some of the best seats in the lower bowl left untaken.

As SFGate noted, tickets were available on secondary markets for just $14 — about the price of a beer and hot dog inside the stadium. And still, few people found the time to support the Niners in person.

People on the internet took notice, inspiring headlines including “The 49ers and Rams Played a Great Game in Front of an Empty Stadium” at The Big Lead and “It Appears Not Many People are Physically at the Rams-49ers Thursday Night Game” from Sports Illustrated.

Lucas Oil Stadium has “tons,” of empty seats during the Indiana Colts vs Jacksonville Jaguars.

If the National Football League thought Americans would ease up on the backlash against the league — they were obviously mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. Stadiums were nearly empty in Week 6, as well.

Breitbart News reports:

Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

Here’s a shot of the Jaguars stadium at kickoff:

It’s common knowledge the left hates football and contact sports.

They have targeted football for years.

But now thanks to Roger Goodell their prayers are answered.

The NFL managed to pi$$ off their core audience by nearly 40 points in the last three weeks.

Nearly 60 percent of working class Trump supporters now view the NFL unfavorably.

The Week reported:

Just three weeks ago, about 60 percent of both Democrats and Republicans said they viewed the NFL favorably, a daily tracking poll from Morning Consult found. Then President Trump stepped in.

After the president told NFL owners to fire players who kneeled during the national anthem, more and more players did the opposite of what Trump wanted. Now, Trump voters have flipped their allegiances: More than 60 percent view the NFL unfavorably, up from around 30 percent in September. Meanwhile, analysis from The New York Times shows Hillary Clinton voters’ views remain relatively unchanged.

And Trump still hasn’t given up the debate:

President Trump has been driving this hot button issue, waging a culture ware against the NFL that has been damaging to both their players and owners.
