Ready for some football? America: "Meh"

 Ace: "Gallup Poll: Public Favorability Towards Corporate Spectator Sports Falls THIRTY POINTS, from +20 to -10, in a Single Year."  

Well done, fellas. You were becoming millionaires just by playing children's games.

Good luck moonlighting at Foot Locker.

Let's look back to the 1994 MLB baseball strike when players said "up yours" to the fans:

"I never felt the same way about baseball again after that,'' Dave Stewart, a four-time 20-game winner and then pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays, tells USA TODAY Sports. "Even today, after all of my years in baseball, the passion I have for the game has never been the same. All because of that strike."

It took a full decade to get back to baseline attendance:

In 1994, the average attendance was a then-record 31,256. It was not until 2004 — the first year in which players could be suspended for testing positive for steroids, after almost a decade of a drug-fueled home run derby — that the average attendance again topped 30,000.

Americans have had six months to find new interests that don't include $10 beers and preachy millionaires.

The people who like to tout Fox News' cable TV ratings will feel sad if they look at sports TV ratings.

Remember when the Washington Nationals crowd booed Trump so hard that even he couldn't spin it?

So good!
So good!
So good!
