Week one of the regular NFL season kicked off this weekend with a wimper-the ratings were at a 10-year low.
Friday night's Eagles vs Falcons game was hit with heavy rains which caused a delay.
Americans are fed up with athletes kneeling during the National Anthem and it showed-plenty of empty seats plagued stadiums on Sunday.

Sea of empty seats at the Chargers game. No excuses for bad weather. It is a beautiful sunny day at the StubHub Center in SoCal.
Plenty of empty seats at Baltimore Ravens vs Buffalo Bills 5 minutes after kickoff. The rain may be a factor, however; hardcore football fans previously filled stadiums in heavy rain and snow storms.
Another shot of the Ravens vs Bills game:
On Sunday, Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kicked off their first game one of the NFL season by taking a knee during the National Anthem and Colin Kaepernick celebrated.
The constant protests on the field are destroying the NFL.
The President slammed the NFL on Sunday for their abysmal ratings.

Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad last year comparison. Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a decade. If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 9, 2018
