Sunday is the Super Bowl, and after a season with dropping television ratings, a season that saw fans upset with players over political protest, the game might very well be a big test for the league.
Ratings were down 10% this season, and it has a lot to do with players not standing for the anthem, which became a big issue for President Trump.
“We proudly stand for the national anthem,” Trump said to a standing ovation at the State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
Warner Todd Huston with Breitbart told KTRH even though it's the Super Bowl some still won't watch.
“It’s very possible we will still see the same decline in ratings. But the Super Bowl is the Super Bowl after all,” Huston explained.
And he says the NFL is lying when they say ratings aren't a concern.
“The NFL should be concerned. They realized they lost ad revenue because they had to pay back some of their advertisers,” Huston stated.
If the Eagles win on Sunday, Torrey Smith has already said he won't visit the White House and President Trump.
