One negative headline that dogged the NFL throughout the season was the decline in ratings.
TV ratings were down eight percent in 2016 and that trend continued in the Super Bowl, where the league’s title game saw another ratings decline.
But the media is trying to cover up the shocking reason behind the league’s ratings slump.
In 2016, the NFL took a hard turn to the left.
San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem because he believed America systematically oppresses blacks.
Polls by YouGov and Rasmussen found viewers listed Kapernick’s protest as the number one reason they tuned out the League.
That trend of left-wing activism continued at the Super Bowl.
And it may have cost the NFL viewers.
Super Bowl XLI saw a slight decrease in viewers when it drew a 48.8 rating which was down from last year’s 49.
Media members hounded Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady over his friendship with President Trump.
Other players, like Patriots Tight End Martellus Bennett announced he would refuse to attend the White House ceremony if they won to protest Trump.
Heading into the game, the media breathlessly reported that anti-Trump singer Lady Gaga would use her halftime performance to slam Trump and make it clear liberal America would use every platform available to them to “resist” Trump.
Some leftists were upset when Gaga did not mention Trump’s name but gave an inclusive performance that Americans of all political affiliations could enjoy.
But that did not mean the game was free from left-wing politics.
In fact, the commercials were chock full of liberal propaganda.
One and from 84 Lumber depicted what appeared to be illegal immigrants trying to enter America.
The company claimed it was the story of legal immigrants, but many saw the open borders messaged being pushed.
Home sharing app Airbnb also aired a commercial that had nothing to do with their product, but was a 100% hysterical attack on Donald Trump with their “we accept” slogan that was designed to blast Trump for his supposed “anti-immigrant” beliefs.
Google’s ad also displayed homosexual rainbow pride flags prominently in their commercial.
Politics dominated the run-up to the Super Bowl with liberals salivating over denouncing Trump on the largest television platform of the year.
The commercials pushed social justice and left-wing ideology.
So it was so surprise that Americans who gave up on the league in the regular season because of its embrace of left-wing activism did not tune in for the Super Bowl.
