Plenty of Empty Seats at NFL Stadiums

The NFL likely hoped for a return to normalcy for Week 6, especially after Commissioner Goodell’s call to “move past the anthem controversy,” and address the issue in detail at league meetings on Tuesday. Instead, what the NFL got was a return to what has become the “new normal” in the age of anthem protests: empty seats.

Throughout the league, stadiums could be seen with thousands of empty seats at kickoff, and, in some cases in the middle of the game.

Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

  1. I avoided MLB for over 20 years because they struck and wiped out the postseason. I’m much angrier about the NFL than I was about MLB, so I doubt I’ll ever come back.

    I also think that public financing for NFL stadiums is done. Vegas will be the last time.
