Survey: NFL Is America’s Most Unpopular Sports Brand

A recent study shows the controversial National Anthem protests may have resulted in long-term damage to the National Football League’s brand.

The Winston Group Sports Survey found the NFL was rated “unfavorable” by 38% of respondents, the highest among major sports organizations for the third straight month. By comparison, Major League Baseball received an “unfavorable” response from only 15%.

According to the survey:

The NFL had been competitive, but since the kneeling controversy it fell significantly behind, and this survey continues to demonstrate that trend.

Furthermore, the NFL scored particularly poorly with older males (45% “unfavorable”) and the Winston Group noted the newest numbers might indicate “a settling-in process for the new brand standing of the NFL with the public.”

However, the survey was conducted November 29-30 as the NFL was announcing what appeared to be a pay-off of 89 million to the so-called Players Coalition and “social justice” organizations. Given the NFL Players Association’s historic financial support for George Soros related groups, it is likely these monies could be funneled to more leftist activists and  public opinion metrics will continue plunge, especially among conservatives..

Several advertisers like Anheuser-Busch, DirecTV, and Papa John’s have indicated they are concerned with their companies’ association with the NFL brand.

It is becoming more and more clear that the NFL may be unable to reverse the damage caused by the National Anthem protests and could be facing huge public opinion problems, and losses of advertising dollars for that matter.

Reach out to the NFL and let them know why conservatives give the league an “unfavorable” rating because of the disrespectful anthem protests.

      At least this guy’s open with his racism.

        Hey… if every white male is gonna get the name, might as well play the game! Yet, when I think about it, I have to ask everyone: Was it white people who came up with the “afro-American” label? …whereas previous to that, weren’t we all basically consigned to being “color blind”? …all Americans according to the prescriptions of MLK? It used to be “one nation under God”. Now it’s degenerated into some Diverse Identity Nation, separated in angst under complete tribalism. So, if that is the case, let the Negroes have their Football League. No biggie. We Honkies will soon have our own, as well. I’m good, either way. So, carry on, fools. Take that knee and tell us how Black Lives Matter… whereas if you really believed that, you wouldn’t have to tell anyone…. We’d all know, already. Do you hear the Jews telling everyone how they matter? I don’t.

          I have no response to this. It’s too confusing. Let’s just say we disagree, and part ways.

    I haven’t watched a game since pre-season. I got rid of the NFL Mobile app on my phone, free football games from Verizon. I’m getting things done on Sunday afternoons now! Don’t miss the fools that bit the hands that feed them.

    “Protest” on YOUR TIME, not WORK TIME. And no more tax dollars to this farce of a “non profit organization”!!

    • Peter

      How about you protest on your time, and they protest whenever the hell they want?
      The tax dollars thing I agree with.

  • Angelo G

    Do something with your time instead of watching a bunch of spoiled rich kids while they tell us how great they are.

    • Peter

      Good idea. Maybe we can all get together and protest against racial injustice. You good with that?
