So here’s the plan for today’s NFL games.
Both Fox Sports and ESPN will simply cut not broadcast the National Anthem — and the accompanying protests.
Because if you can’t see it, it must not be happening, right?
The truth is, they never used to air the pregame stuff like the anthem. But began doing so when they thought the protests would make for good TV.
But now that they know it’s killing their ratings, they’ll go back to avoiding it.
Hate to tell you guys, but there’s no putting this genie back into the bottle.
The problem isn’t that networks are showing the protests.
The problem is the invasion of politics and social justice into sports.
And if you think hiding it from the viewers will turn the ratings slide around, you really have underestimated the irritation and disgust Americans feel toward the NFL right now.
But I get it.
The NFL was a gold mine for networks for years.
And this invasion of showboating social justice is killing the golden goose.
Just like it is killing universities.
Leftism is a cancer.
And unfortunately for the NFL and their network broadcasters, the cancer has metastasized.
Breaking away to commercial or staying in the studio for pre-game prattling is like trying to defeat cancer with an aspirin.
And far too late.
