Do you believe that Coronavirus is the reason why the viewer's rating of almost all Major Sporting events in the US drops?
This x100. Screw the political crap... i liked sports to get away from all of that.I believe its more do to the issues of professional athletes acting like the world should bow down to them and their political ideas. I know I have had a gut full of it. I guess yearly multi million dollar contracts isn't enough.
When I saw the "names" of the NBA players on the back of their jersey's (and it wasn't their name) I wont watch them anymore.
My sentiments exactly.People turn to sports for entertainment away from politics and other sources of stress or frustration. When politics is injected into what is supposed to be an escape ... it kinda kills it.
Not really a factor, when it comes to rating, but probably it is because they were used politically. Do you think they can rebound next year?Coronavirus made Netflix's stock go up about $250 due to people watching at home. If anything corona is helping prop up the NBA's ratings. Can you tell me any logical reason people would be watching less sports when they have to be home anyway? I don't really think having empty stands is that much of a factor.
