    Despite threat of boycott, attendance increases at Sunday NFL games

    Seems like the Veterans day boycott didn't have the desired effect many wanted it to have at the stadiums....

    Buffalo: Average 68,944; Sunday: 67,501
    Chicago: Average 61,779; Sunday: 61,285
    Jacksonville: Average 59,553; Sunday: 67,164
    Detroit: Average 63,367; Sunday: 64,646
    Indy: Average 63,801; Sunday: 66,146
    Tennessee: Average 67,356; Sunday: 67,432
    Tampa: Average 60,894; Sunday: 57,911
    Washington: Average: 77,451; Sunday: 74,476

    Now, this is just for the attendance to the games, and not the tv viewership at home.

    You list 8 games 4 of which have lower than average attendance, Jacksonville alone exceeded their average by nearly 8000, yet the 8 games listed only exceeded by 3000 total.

    Why does your list not have the other 4 games that played Sunday?

    People that love football care about the sport. Most could care less about the political statement that some of these players are currently doing. Most people are wondering why they chose this year to make a stand when all years prior they had no problem with standing for the National Anthem.

    Kaepernick was kneeling when Obama was president. The others decided to join in when the president made it an issue.

    Exactly. It wasn't even an issue anymore until The Orange One opened his mouth and basically threatened players. I was against Kaepernick when he initially did this. But after idiot opened his mouth and said people like Kaepernick should be fired, I've been behind the players all the way. Any decent American should be. F*** Trump. As president, he had no right to even suggest such a thing.

    In any other situation, the right would be chomping at the bit to challenge the government. Imagine Obama saying that someone should be fired for something done in the private sector, the cons here would be having a feeding frenzy over it.
