I know I have been hammering the NFL a lot lately, but why not? They deserve every negative word. We warned them on Twitter to wake up and smell the coffee, and they chose the path of destruction for themselves. I feel nothing for them.
Now we have a new poll out that shows that they may not be able to recover. NFL Football is now the least-liked sport. Shock Poll: NFL Now Least Liked Sport, Core Fans Down 31%

Over just one month of player, coach, and owner protests of the flag and National Anthem, the National Football League has gone from America’s sport to the least liked of top professional and college sports, according to a new poll.
From the end of August to the end of September, the favorable ratings for the NFL have dropped from 57 percent to 44 percent, and it has the highest unfavorable rating – 40 percent – of any big sport, according to the Winston Group survey.
But what really matters are the numbers, and here they are:
August Winston Poll
MLB – 61 percent favorable to 13 percent unfavorable.
NFL – 57 percent favorable to 23 percent unfavorable.
College football – 53 percent favorable to 16 percent unfavorable.
College basketball – 48 percent favorable to 17 percent unfavorable.
NBA – 47 percent unfavorable to 23 percent unfavorable.
September Winston Poll
MLB – 63 percent favorable to 16 percent unfavorable.
College football – 51 percent favorable to 21 percent unfavorable.
NBA – 46 percent favorable to 28 percent unfavorable.
College basketball – 45 percent favorable to 25 percent unfavorable.
NFL – 44 percent favorable to 40 percent unfavorable.
So there you go. Americans are serious about the importance of our police officers, and we can clearly see that a few out-of-control cops at random events do not imply a nationwide racist police force. The NFL players want you to think that Michael Brown was murdered in cold blood by a racist cop, solely because of the color of his skin. This is the “unity” the NFL keeps talking about, and it obviously insults the intelligence of most Americans when these players and owners ignore our National Anthem because of this supposed “unity” with this thought.
