According t a recent Winston Survey poll, the NFL sinks further in popular into among sports.

Keep it up NFL and you will go the way of the dinosaur. As it is, I now watch exclusively college football and have not tuned a NFL game on in two weeks. Start being respectful or you will lose all of your fan base.
In the month of September positive ratings sank from 57 percent to 44 percent. Unfavorable ratings are at 40 percent.
Among a general sample of registered voters, September showed a drop in favorable ratings from 57 to 44 percent according to the Winston Poll from the Winston Group.

One important demographic, men ages 34-54 showed a more dramatic increase in disenchantment with the NFL.
That group went from 73 percent favorable and 19 percent unfavorable to 42 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable.
Worse for football, which was already seeing lower TV ratings and empty stadium seats, the month of protests and complaints about them from President Trump drove core fans, men 34-54, away, the most significant indicator that NFL brass aren’t in touch with their base.
The Winston Poll from the Washington-based Winston Group found that the attitude of those fans went from an August rating of 73 percent favorable and 19 percent unfavorable to 42 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable, a remarkable turn against the sport.
According to the poll analysis, “more critically for the NFL, the fall off in favorables occurred among important audiences. Among males, NFL favorables fell 23 percent, going from 68 percent to 45 percent. In looking at a more specific audience, males 34-54, NFL favorables fell 31 percent, going from 73 percent to 42 percent. Among this group the NFL has a surprising negative image, as it went from +54 percent in August to -5 percent in September.”
