More trouble for the NFL on the TV ratings front, and numb-nuts commish Roger Goodell is running out of lame-ass excuses.
The four wild card games were down 13 percent from last year’s ratings, and last year was down from the year before. That’s not a great sign for the league.
But Goodell is emphasizing that the NFL still outdraws other sports and entertainment on American television.
“I think dominance of the NFL in television is still very clear,” Goodell said, adding that NFL games were 37 of the 50 most-watched programs in 2017.
Goodell is right that the league is dominant on television but how long can that remain the case as ratings keep declining?
