We all can agree that the NFL was unwantedly dragged in the middle of a massive controversy that involved many different participants even from the highest hierarchy in this country.
After a couple of highly unliking events, the Commissioner Goodell called all members of the NFL for a stop with all this with his policy issued on Tuesday. As the NFL was hoping for a calming for Week 6, in return they got empty seats and even more protestors on the field.
“The NFL likely hoped for a return to normalcy for Week 6, especially after Commissioner Goodell’s call to “move past the anthem controversy,” and address the issue in detail at league meetings on Tuesday. Instead, what the NFL got was a return to what has become the “new normal” in the age of anthem protests: empty seats.
Throughout the league, stadiums could be seen with thousands of empty seats at kickoff, and, in some cases in the middle of the game.”
Just look at these empty and half-empty stadiums throughout the country as a result of their dirty way of protesting and dishonoring our highest values.

You can actually see that on the Jets versus New England game on Saturday there are so few people in comparison to the past games where there is a whole sea of fans. Baltimore as well has a very big fan base, and there are very few who attend the game at this point. The same goes for Texas, Atlanta and many other big teams that have huge fan bases, or used to have.
Check out the Jacksonville Jaguars stadium at the kick-off.

Some might say that this is Jacksonville who we are talking about, but still, this is alarmingly empty for every standard.
This is a HUGE PROBLEM!
