Incredible denial going on in this article. It goes through a thousand bogus reasons just to avoid admitting the truth: long time fans are boycotting because of insulting displays of disrespect for our flag. Until the NFL bans Kaepernick and makes all players stand respectfully for the National Anthem, they are not going to get those fans back.
The NFL also doesn’t realize how hard it may be to get fans addicted again. Some are getting used to the benefits of life without the NFL:more time with the kids, reduced consumption of beer, fewer pizzas wolfed down, not so many bags of chips.
