Poll: NFL's Favorability Cut Nearly In Half In a Week

I don't know what it will take to convince corporations that changing their corporate mission to becoming Full Leftist Propaganda Outfits is contrary to their business interests.

But maybe this will be instructive.

The Morning Consult passed this press release to the Daily Caller:

NFL's Brand Favorability Drops To Lowest Point Since Morning Consult Started Tracking: The NFLs net favorability has dropped from 30% on September 21 to 17% on September 28.

On September 21, 25% of Trump supporters said they had a very favorable view of the NFL and 11% had a very unfavorable view.

As of Sept 28, those numbers have dramatically changed with 33% of Trump supporters say they have a very unfavorable view of the NFL and 16% report having a very favorable view.

A little insight I got from an acquaintance (and I hope I'm not breaching trust by mentioning this):

Corporations make these political decisions based mainly on ad hoc advice from their PR and HR departments. Blue employees, in other words.

Who do not make their decisions based upon data -- like "What will our actual customers think about this?"

I hope this is not giving away any trade secret of his, but he wound up doing such a study for a company, actually looking into who a company's customers actually were, and discovered that, as far as he knew, he was the first person to look at a company's customers' political leanings in offering advice on whether to position the company to the left on a political issue, or simply remain neutral.

The first. Person. Ever. To Even. Bother. Performing data collection and analysis to inform the choice of whether a major major company should declare itself Social Justice Warrior.

The rest of the time, the decision was just made based upon gut feelings (and political preferences) of their liberal middle management castes, who, I imagine, based their rigorous analysis on what Rachel Maddow said the night before.

Meanwhile, a lot of blue employees are pretty determined to talk themselves out of a job. The Tennessee Titans' Delanie Walker had simple advice for those bothered by the SJW takeover of the NFL: just don't come to the games.

With ticket sales already down 17.9% from week 2 to week 3, I'd say a lot of people already figured out that one for themselves.

When the NFL players' salaries start getting cut because the league isn't making nearly as much money, do you think these special snowflakes will demand a federal bailout?

Don't dismiss that out of hand -- after all, the NFL is already sucking millions of dollars every year from taxpayers, who happily agree to build their stadiums and give them special tax incentives, all for those exciting new job opportunities in the lucrative careers of Seasonal Parking Lot Flashlight-Waving Traffic Engineers and Part-Time Hot Dog Assembly Managers.

This fiasco may, however, open the eyes of the public to a serious and generally unchecked issue: billionaire NFL owners sponging enormous amounts of money from taxpayers through crony capitalist schemes.

The fact is that a business that raked in $14 billion in revenue in 2016 is heavily subsidized by local, state, and federal money based on dubious claims about stimulating the economy.

Next time the NFL comes askin' you to vote in favor of a municipal bond to build their stadium for them, or give them some local land gratis, I suggest you #TakeTheKnee yourselves.
