    It's a free country,so do what you want. Me personally,i'm pretty much done. I've been watching the n.f.l. since the late "60's" . The whole protest thing was the last straw. [I am a u.s. navy vet] But i have been saying for the last 5 years that the league is going down. The quality of play has gone down. You can't hit hi,you can't hit low. They don't practice with contact anymore,then when players get hurt 2 weeks into the season,people wonder why players aren't conditioned better. Penalty's about every 5 plays. Bad officiating. Bad owners.Bad commish. Bad product!!! just my opinion. I will golf. Basketball is around the corner. [college,NOT the n.b.a.] Spend more time with my family on Sundays. Not a big deal for me. The n.f.l. doesn't give a rats butt about the fans,why should i give a rats butt about them. FORE!!!!!! ...... Later gators!!!

    I think this is the case for 95% of "fans."

    My lack of watching is more geared towards how bad the Bengals are doing. Plus I have a lot of projects to be completed that are more important than the NFL and the protest impact. So no boycott, just a re-prioritizing!

    I'm not a fan of the protest and my support of hs and college football will grow as a result!

    Same, and to be honest I don't really care how people feel about it for the most part so I don't bother bringing that type of thing up.

    I usually watch at least Cobb & the Packers, plus the other games on Sunday.

    I want to thank the protesters for giving me my weekend back.
    First time in 20 years my Sunday was free. Instead of rushing to one Halloween store I took my daughter to 3 different ones. Sincerely thank you NFL.

    I know a lot of people who have stopped watching all together.
    Like HB 20 my viewing has lessened over the past couple of years for many reasons, and it started before the national anthem flap.

    Instead of my normal 10 or so hours of NFL Football on Sunday I probably cut it down to 7 yesterday, that probably sums me up, I am at 70% of my interest level Before Protest (BP).

    I knew no one until yesterday when my next door neighbor told me he was not watching. He is a Browns fan, so I asked him if he watched and that is when he told me.

    I watched from 1:00-10:00 (I fell asleep) with a couple of breaks to take the dog out for a walk.

    I watched the President's Cup and didn't record a minute of any games. Kind of getting tired of all the politics in the workplace. Don't know of many business environments that allow their employees to impose their personal agendas on their customers.

    Oldercoach...right on!!!! Probably my biggest point with all of this. Protest on your own time. I don't pay,or tune in to hear your opinions!!!! Just play ball!!!
    But,as i have said before,the quality of play has been declining for the last 5/7 years. I am not a slave to ANY sport!!!! If other people can't live without it,so be it. Knock yourselves out!!! I've had enough!!! ....Btw,just something to think about. Why just football players? I know a few n.b.a. players have done stuff,but you don't see this crap from baseball,hockey,even Nascar. Why are these clowns special? ..LOL!!! Sorry guy's,just thinking out loud. Bring on college basketball!!!

    I decided Sunday to not watch and didn't watch last night. I'm growing tired of politics being forced into near every facet of my life. I watch sports to escape this kind of stuff, if I want to see it I'll tune into news and news shows. I haven't decided if I will stay away all season, but I haven't missed it like I thought I would.
