We all know the controversy that has been swirling around the NFL, and whether you like the protests, dislike them, or however you feel - it's difficult to deny that they're not good for business.
Numerous polls have been done by reputable polling sites since Kaepernick first took a knee in order to better understand the type of effect an Anthem protest can have on the most popular sports league in the country. And in fact, the most recent poll done was by Remington - the results of this poll were shocking...
"When asked, “What is your favorite professional sports league?” Respondents answeredthat they favored MLB by 30%, the NFL came in second at 25%, the NBA and the NHL at 10% and 8% respectively. While the five percent difference between MLB and the NFL is not insignificant, one imagines the gap between the NFL and the top sport might have been even greater if college football was offered as a choice.
What also clear is that the NFL is starting to lose their male audience. When controlled for gender, 32% of males listed MLB as their favorite sport. While only 23% of males listed the NFL as their favorite sport. Women remained virtually unchanged between the two sports, with 28% favoring MLB and 27% favoring the NFL. So, the NFL’s dip in popularity can be pretty clearly traced back to losing men."
