Womp Womp: Look What Happened To NBA, MLB Ratings After All The Kneeling

(Tea Party PAC) – This is what happens when you bow to the outrage mob and ignore the silent majority.

Well, kneel.

As the return of sports has brought a wave of kneeling during the National Anthem in such high numbers that it makes headlines when players stand for the anthem, professional sports leagues are finding that their little “protests” aren’t too popular with the fans.

See how far empty, disrespectful virtue-signaling gets you?

Fans have been waiting months to see sports return after the painfully long coronavirus hiatus, but it appears they weren’t thrilled that the return included lots and lots of anthem kneeling.

Breitbart reports that, according to Outkick.com, neither the NBA or the MLB had very impressive ratings following the protest-filled debuts.

As for the opening games, Outkick reported that the return of the NBA on TNT saw the following numbers:

Lakers-Clippers: 3.4 million
Pelicans-Jazz: 2.1 million

ESPN’s MLB return numbers were also underwhelming:

Yankees-Nationals: 4.0 million
Dodgers-Giants: 2.8 million

Outkick’s Ryan Glasspiegel added more ratings numbers on Twitter.

“To be fair since I compared MLB vs NBA return night 1, here is night 2,” (July 24) he wrote, adding:

MLB (last Friday, ESPN)
Mets-Braves (4p) – 922K
Brewers-Cubs (7p) – 1.0M
Angels-As (10p) – 797K

NBA (last night ESPN) (July 31)
Celtics-Bucks (6:30p) – 1.3M
Mavs-Rockets (9p)- 1.7M

The Athletic’s Ethan Strauss also noted that the numbers continued to fall off for MLB:

Strauss also pointed out that baseball’s dip in ratings can’t be attributed to the coronavirus, as viewers were happy to tune in to watch Tom Brady golf with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson back in May.

This charity golf match had record-high TV ratings in May.

  5. I noticed that the NHL players all stood. They’re also all white. Are they getting some sort of super-privileged treatment that the players in every other sport are denied? No, they’re just mature professionals who are happy to have a good job and do what they love, and they show their appreciation for that. Not like the immature, ungrateful n*gs who whine about everything and never have enough. No wonder hockey is the only sport I like.

  6. I quit working at shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier.

  7. I well never watch again ,, even if they stand , we voted for Trump, and they can’t respect that . I’ll return the favor, if a DEMARAT wins ,,god help us if they do ..

  8. The first night of St. Louis Cardinals baseball, I turned on the TV to see the MLB logo and BLM plastered on the back of the pitching mound. I turned it off and have not watched any baseball no matter who is playing because the league continues to support a lie and false narrative. I had already given up football last year. This past Saturday night, I was looking forward to watching the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Montreal Canadians play during the first night of the NHL. I thought that, surely, the NHL would not succumb to the ignorance. I was wrong. During the second intermission, the NHL did broadcast a speech by a Canadian who plays for the Minnesota Wild. I think he considers himself black but he looked white. He launched into a message about the systemic racism in the U.S., how things have to change, and a lot of other dribble that had no business being blathered by an unappreciative athlete who knows not what he is talking about. Additionally, his speech was given at center ice with the Chicago Blackhawks around half the circle and the Edmonton Oilers around the other half. Two black athletes had their hands on each of the guy’s shoulders while he knelt for the National Anthem and stood for the Canadian Anthem. I wanted to throw my bowl of popcorn through the TV. I have not watched another professional sports game and will not do so again. I will not purchase another NFL, MLB, NBA, or NHL piece of merchandise and I will not attend a live game even if someone offers me free tickets. I am done with America haters. You haters brought your politics into the games. I am taking leave of the games. I will focus on reading, exercising, and spending more quality time with my wife and grandkids as opposed to wasting my time watching a bunch of overpaid, ignorant clowns playing a game. I encourage all Americans not to bow to the pressure of the mob. We are not systemically racist. All chances of healing and improving things are going out the window with the support of so many for an organization and a theme that is just blatantly false. Take a better stand, America!

  9. Looks like their Anti-American antics are not appreciated bt Blu collar America. If they are going to kiss China’s ass, let them all move to China. Sports used to be non-political which it should be. Screw them all. Hockey teams still are supporting the USA. Lets watch them instead.

  11. Everybody HATES TREASONISTIC TRAITORS. Big League Sports . . . RIP. One Enlightened And DISGUSTED Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  13. I have always watched sports and enjoyed it my whole life especially football. But ever since these idiots started kneeling. I quit watching sports altogether. They will eventually have to start looking for a real job. And get paid what working class people get paid. We made them what they are. And we as American citizens can also break them the same way. Bye Bye Sports. Hello Reality!

  14. These professional teams and players don’t know which side of the bread there butter is on. People are not going to try to escape their problems by watching well paid (over) men (women) protest and interject their opinions in a game. People can watch the news for that. This especially when the so called “cause” is from a group of people who can care less for the people they are protesting (rioting) for . BLM’s main goal, which was stated publicly by it co-founder, is to get rid of Donald Trump. Murders and crime in the big cities are of no concern of theirs. Black on Black crime is terrible and not enough is being done to protect the innocent as a priority. De-funding the police should never have been an option. But I digress – bottom line is that the pro-sports teams are shooting themselves in the feet by the actions being taken.

  15. I would hope that our athletes had more of a spine than to be bullied into knelling for the national anthem. If we had to depend on them to keep our country safe from Hitler or other Nazis like people we would have lost the war. I’m not watching cowards play games to make millions of dollars just to be bullied into trashing our country and that Canadian
    guy can take his knelling act back to Canada and stay there

  16. When the National Anthem is played it is American Tradition to stand for it, take your hat off, face the flag, and put your right hand over your heart, and if you want to sing it. It is anti-American in ANY CONTEXT to kneel, leave your hat on, talk, put your hands behind your back or do any number of stupid things. The Country and the Anthem that represents the country is greater than any of your causes, or any of my causes except for God alone – that is who I kneel before. I will not be watching any pro sports or listening to any ESPN or anything else that continues to denigrate this country in their ignorance and stupidity. Stand up and act like Americans and stop being useful idiots for EVIL leftists.

    • People probably don’t remember how the statue of the late, great singer Kate Smith was at some stadium of a non descript hockey team. She raised millions and millions of dollars in today’s dollars for the WWII effort and was “crucified” because when she was barely 20 years old and just starting her career, she sang a song which some reverse racists considered to be racist. The same song was sung by the great black baritone Paul Roberson who also sang “Old Man River in the original version of “Showboat”. He also sang even more such songs. Her statue was taken away to a apparently secret location and her memory has been tarnished. She was a hero and certainly worth 1,000 of these ignorant ball players, their managers and their team owners.

  17. Maybe someday, after revenues plummet, the owners and the players will finally realize who the boss really is. AND, it’s not them. Neither group has been paying any attention to what their bosses want them to do. Eventually they will if they want to survive. Or maybe they like playing in front of hundred of cardboard fans with piped-in crowd noise.

  18. I found that my life has been just fine since I stopped giving a crap about sports! Let em eat their jock straps, I hope that they all go broke!

  19. Pro sports are dead to me. I used to love it but now they’ve protested themselves into looking like racist lemmings. So sad.

  20. I get paid more than $120 to $130 per hour for working online. I heard about this job 3 months ago and after joining this i have earned easily $15k from this without having online working skills.

  22. I’m a big NBA fan but I’m done protests and politics at what should be purely an escape from all that. Now if you stand for the National anthem, you are derided and called a racist. There are many who don’t want to kneel but feel intimidated into doing so. If you have a dissenting opinion that doesn’t line up with the left’s narrative then you are bullied by them. This is no different than Mussolini’s fascist party. There is no place in sports for this behavior.

  23. I earned $50000 last month by the use of operating on-line most effective for five to eight hours on my pc and this was so that i in my opinion could not accept as authentic with earlier than running in this website. if you too want toclean earn this type of huge coins then come and be a part of us. do this internet-website on line .
