Sports broadcaster, Al Michaels, blames President Trump for the drop in NFL ratings.
Democrats like to blame everything on everyone else, with little to no personal responsibility. NFL protesting was already upsetting the nation which is WHY Trump spoke out against the players, rating have dropped due to the lack of patriotism shown by these over privileged players, NOT because of President Trump.
In reality, Al Michaels, couldn’t be more wrong. NFL Ratings plummeting has everything to do with the players and the media plain and simple. If players hadn’t chosen to kneel during the national anthem, disrespect would’ve never been brought up, if broadcasting networks had simply chosen to not air that portion of pregame festivities, again it would have never been allowed to get this out of hand. Rather than blame the President for speaking the truth, take a look in the mirror.
Al Michaels, a legendary sports broadcaster and announcer, told the Philadelphia Inquirer the reason for plummeting “Sunday Night Football” ratings has been a result of President Donald Trump’s comments toward those who choose to disrespect the flag.
Ratings have been down 8 percent compared to last year, but “Sunday Night Football” is still on the top of the charts for prime-time programs. Michaels defended his program, saying, “It’s number one and it’s getting bashed because the ratings are down. Two or three years ago, the ratings were so spectacular that there had to be a little bit of a diminishment at some point.”
“Once the president made those remarks in Alabama, at that particular point it was like throwing a match into a gas tank.
During the off-season, both sides just have to sit down and figure out a way to make this a situation where it doesn’t overwhelm the conversation about the NFL.”
Haven’t liberals learned that diplomacy is weak and inconsistent, actions speak louder than words.
