Default Major Sports rating drops due to Coronavirus?

Do you believe that Coronavirus is the reason why the viewer's rating of almost all Major Sporting events in the US drops?

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.

This x100. Screw the political crap... i liked sports to get away from all of that.

What I've learned through this Coronavirus stuff... is that I can live without an awful lot of events and stuff.

I can't switch channels fast enough. It is supposed to be entertainment. It no longer is.

I thought I was the only one who was sick of their political garbage.
They are going to kill their own "golden goose".

It’s interesting. I think people find what they’re looking for on this stuff. I didn’t watch much of the NBA playoffs until the Finals. Yes, there was “Black Lives Matter” on the court and social justice messages on many of the jerseys, and I knew they were there. But when watching the games, I didn’t even notice that. It didn’t distract from the game for me at all. Just like a company logo (I think Mtn Dew was one?) on the court doesn’t distract the game itself.

But I wasn’t going there for political guidance. I was going to watch basketball, and interestingly enough...I was entertained by basketball. Game 5 of the Finals was one of the best and most entertaining sporting events I’ve watched in years.

Again, I think we find what we’re looking for on this stuff.

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.


Personally, I take issue with any group that tries to ramrod their beliefs down your throat. You do you boo, leave me be.

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.
