BOSTON (CBS) — Another day, another disappointment for NFL ratings.

Yes, Monday night’s contest between the Bills and Seahawks was the most-watched program on television, according to Sports Business Daily, but it also showed a significant drop-off from last year’s Week 9 Monday Night Football game between the Bears and Chargers.

The Seahawks-Bills game drew a 7.8 overnight rating, which is the lowest Week 9 MNF game rating since 2007, per Sports Business Daily.

Deadline pointed to the rating as a steady showing for ESPN, but remember: This is the NFL, where growth is paramount. Whether it’s through an 18-game schedule or games in Europe/Mexico/China or a full Thursday night slate, the league has always sought and will always seek to grow. Any steps backward in an area once taken for granted will not be considered a positive by the league.

While the NFL has pointed to the election as a major reason for the ratings slump, SBD noted that the last time ESPN aired a Monday Night Football game one day before an election, it drew a 9.5 overnight rating despite not being shown in the New York market.

Just like Sunday night, the NFL should be concerned with the lower viewership on Monday night because all signs would theoretically point to big ratings. Not only did the game feature a high-profile home team with a high-profile quarterback going up against one of the more high-profile head coaches in the sport, but it also turned out to be a very competitive game that was not decided until the final minute. Big plays were made on both sides of the ball by both teams. It even had a controversial officiating situation that theoretically might have grabbed some viewers who saw the situation unfolding on Twitter.

Nevertheless, it couldn’t draw the same ratings as last year’s Week 9 meeting between the 2-5 Bears and 2-6 Chargers.

To update a figure from Monday, ratings have now declined year-to-year in 27 of 28 of the NFL’s prime-time games this year.

While the reasons for the ratings decline are many, Saints quarterback Drew Brees and offensive lineman Zach Strief blamed the NFL’s front office — headed, of course, by commissioner Roger Goodell — for deceiving football fans for years and thus draining much of the enthusiasm for the sport around the country.

“We feel like [the decline in TV ratings] is a direct result. I know the players don’t have any faith in the way that things are conducted within the front office in the NFL — certainly when it comes to any type of investigation, when it comes to any type of commissioner discipline,” Brees told ESPN. “It’s really kind of a joke at this point, unfortunately. And it shouldn’t be like that.”

Strief said the relationship between players and the league is at an all-time low, and that contentious situation may have seeped into fans’ perception of the league.

“The NFL front office has seemed to have found a way to make everything somewhat contentious. It feels like there’s this constant assault on the players, like we’re two entities. It’s like they don’t think they need us to do this,” Strief said. “And I think over time, as it’s constantly in the media and it’s constantly a public issue, I think the fans start to feel a similar way. It’s just a constant contentious issue. When you take Brady and say it affected Tom Brady and it affected the New England Patriots, well the fans feel like they’re a part of that. It does affect them and it does affect their team and it does affect how you feel about the league, and it does turn you off.

“At the end of the day, the relationship between the front office and the people who are not in the front office has probably never been worse.”

That’s likely a factor, though the ratings drop for the juggernaut NFL remains a multifaceted phenomenon. With the election ending this week and the Seahawks and Patriots set for a Sunday night Super Bowl XLIX rematch, it should be safe to expect a notable boost — at least for this one game.

At the same time, ratings for Thursday night’s Browns-Ravens matchup certainly won’t be great. Sunday’s late game of Cowboys at Steelers ought to be a decent national draw, while Monday night’s Bengals-Giants game offers little appeal to the masses.

Whatever happens this upcoming week and beyond will be particularly noteworthy, as Tuesday’s election will remove one of the ready-made excuses the league has clung to in order to explain the ratings drops.

  1. Tired of NFL disrespecting my country!

    1. John Dendy says:

      Goodall is destroying the NFL

    2. Stan Dupp says:

      How much impact do you think Colin Kaepernick’s behavior had on the election?

  2. Rod Miller says:

    Greed at some point does not end well. MNF is okay, but Thursday night football degrades the product. Players need to adhere to a routine to achieve best performances. The product has over-saturated the market..

    Perhaps the main problem is the disrespect of our country. Thank Kaepernick(?) for that. I know more than a few patriotic people who are boycotting the NFL for that very reason. A “role model” demonstrating discontent and hatred to our children needs to get a slap upside the head. Play football, count your blessing and stay out of politics.

    LeBron James is making the same mistake. Many of us in Ohio loved the Cavs last year but many of us are tuning LeBron out this year.

    Back to fishing.

  3. Ken Valley says:

    The ratings will keep falling as long as that Communist Kaepernick continues to disrespect our flag and Goodell keep allowing it. It goes to show the hypocrisy and double standard on the leftists in the NFL. Oh, they can be tolerant with Communist players, but no tolerance for anyone who wants to pray before or after his game. The NFL can just bite me!

  4. Tom Menino says:

    Goodell has destroyed the brand.

  5. I watched the MNF game, but only because the Seahawks are my favorite team. I now watch less than 50% of the NFL games I watched in previous years. It burns my a– to see players disrespect our flag and our country. But this is right in line with what I expect will happen to our country if Hillary is elected. If she becomes president, we won’t recognize the U.S. in four years… She will either bankrupt it, or we will become a 3rd-World country.

  6. Return it to regular TV where people who don’t have cable or satellite TV can watch it!

  7. Jim Craig says:

    When all players show respect for the USA and quit using the game for phony protests, I’ll go back to watching.

  8. Somebody should take Goodell to the Vietnam Wall, maybe he will realize why fans are upset with Kaepernick and the NFL

  9. And until the NFL stops allowing their employees/representatives to show blatant disrespect for my country’s flag I will not watch another NFL game.

  10. Ho Jo says:

    too many penalties, too many rules, too many stupid commercials, disrespectful players…..

  11. Spoiled college student, millionaires, playing with pink shoes on carpet, and disrespecting a flag that is very special to me and my family. I’m done.

  12. The NFL let a few idiots disrespect the USA, did not do anything about it, except condoning it.

    They are designing their own paycut, and it is coming in the next 1-2 years. The next TV contract will not be as rich, nor will sales of merchandise.

  13. too many games, games take too long, too many official reviews, too many spoiled brats that are amazingly gifted but don’t have a clue about our nation and its exceptional place in the world — I challenge them to try their ‘stuff’ in Iran or China or Russia …..grow up!!!

  14. Abel Garcia says:

    Thanks Colin Kaepernick!

  15. Dusty Rhodes says:

    We’re all disgusted with rich, spoiled, pampered athletics telling us America is not a great nation.

  16. Karen Norton says:

    This makes me so happy. Keep it up folks until they are giving you free tickets to come back.

  17. Keep urinating on our country, flag, and anthem and see what happens.

  18. Maybe they should replace Monday Night Football with All Star Wrestling It would be much more entertaining to watch the likes of Brass Balls Bill beating the brains out of The Sultan of Smack.

  19. Ed Cole says:

    Ironically, last evening’s game had a very patriotic opening National Anthem, flyover with beautiful flags hung from helicopters, and no players were shown by the cameras taking a knee. Whether there were any players doing so, and the cameras were instructed to not show them, I cannot say. But it doesn’t matter. The damage is already done. The anti-Americanism was just the final straw. The ridiculous rules changes into the sport becoming basically “Flag Football” in everything but official name, the incompetent/corrupt officiating with endless delays after nearly every play, the endless tv commercial interruptions to play, and the hoodlums behaving with no class and no care about their influence on our youth as role models, have all destroyed the sport. College and NFL football are about nothing anymore buy money. The athleticism is only a sideshow today. It is pathetic.

  20. Reason 1: Allowing players to disrespect our country during the National Anthem, but not allowing them to show respect for the fallen Dallas Police Officers.

    Reason 2: Referees trying to hard to become part of the game. The delays are painful and the outcomes of games are being decided by senior citizens in striped shirts.

  21. I quit watching NFL Football. Protest on your own time. Not mine. It’s amazing how much free time I have found on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays.

  22. Tom Antrim says:

    Players have a right to knee and I have a right to stop watching the NFL.

  23. Football? It’s on? Not til all these players stand up for the anthem.,

  24. Carey Jay says:

    the law of diminishing returns … maybe, supply and demand, or, keenly idiotic management from the nfl…?

  25. Hank Litner says:

    Not sure the “Cheaters” (Patriots) have contributed much to ratings. The NFL used to be America’s game…but its hard to equate that with a sport where some of its millionaire players kneel for the National Anthem. All this impacts ratings when many of us start looking elsewhere..such as to more college football.

  26. Lou Anthony says:

    Disrespect for the National Anthem, Drug users, DWI’s, Abusers, inconsistent penalty calls and referees making mistakes that determine the outcome of games when they have Instant Replay cameras all over the place – so why would anybody be turned off by the NFL.

  27. Bill Sunday says:

    What football game? Where? If you want to charge people to watch at home, Fu** Off, and die!

  28. turn off the TV and internet

  29. voodoodaddy1 says:

    No longer watch and in fact actively avoid the NFL. I was a 23 year season ticket holder for the 49ers. Not any more!!!!

  30. I no longer subscribe to ESPN, so there’s that… I think people are sick of football after Saturday college games and then 3 time slots on Sunday. Monday it’s on to more important things, especially if your team isn’t playing.

  31. If the NFL can’t control their employees they don’t deserve the respect of the viewers God and Country before the NFL

  32. Here’s how it is, and I’m a long-long-time NFL fan and viewer. 1. TOO MANY TEAMS there’s not enough depth in the available talent pool to field 32 teams. Reduce the number of NFL teams from 32 to about 24. 2. LACK OF SPORTSMANSHIP and this gets touchy in a non-PC way — black players celebrating in a street/jungleball manner is not something I relate to. There are black QBs and coaching staffs now. It’s heading towards being a black sport. This is not the game it once was. I don’t mean a coordinated end zone celebration, I mean more like that throat-slashing motion the NFL specifically banned a few years back. Do a web search on the word “sportsmanship” and then look for evidence of it in the next NFL game you watch. 3. THE “C” WORD and it’s not four letters long. Concussions. No more runbacks, every kickoff goes through the back of the 10-year end zone. Nothing has replaced the excitement and violence of a runback. 4. THE OCTOBER “PINK” THEME AND THE NOVEMBER CAMO THEMES are both inappropriate. Pink is not a color that belongs on the NFL field. It’s a dumb idea. And camo is for battlefield use only, not as decoration. Want to do something special for November? USE BUNTING, red, white and blue decorations. Be patriotic, not fascistic, and the camo on the field is clearly worship of militaria, a hallmark of fascism. 5. THERE’S MORE but that seems ample.

    1. So much wrong with this statement.

      1. John Wilson says:

        Actually, there’s nothing wrong with this statement, Timmy…

  33. Gary Cheney says:

    The NFL wants to be PC let them, just give everyone a little plastic trophy then tell them they are special. You watch sports to see who the winner and losers are not how much you hate the fans.

  34. The NFL doesn’t get it! The type of true American that follows the NFL games year in and year out is the SAME type of true American that sees through the lies of Black Lives Matter, that stands firmly with Law Enforcement that protects this country, and that is completely discouraged by the shenanigans of Kaepernick and company. Those Americans have turned OFF the NFL this year.

  35. John Smith says:

    I don’t watch MNF because it is on ESPN. ESPN should be broadcasting, like they did in the past, sports that are not available on over the air free TV.

  36. The NFL is boring and predictable. Wait for the playoffs. It’s the only time of year the talent shines. And the players taking a knee for the National Anthem just gives people an excuse to watch something else or find something better to do with their time.

    1. We have cancelled our weekly Sunday gathering for the Games. We were up to 19 people joining the fun, joking, picking winners and good food. Sorry to say we all lost interest. When Kapernick or whatever his name is, took and a knee and it started a wave of others dishonoring the American Flag and our service men who fought and many died defending that same flag. It makes us feel that everything we did was in vain and the ones that do not honor the flag, do not care how they remain free in this country. Basketball players are starting to do the same, including Lebron James who said he is tired of the way things are going, well the fans are sick and tired of you and all the ones who thing they are big stars and we should give a s—t about what they do or say. Close pro basketball down, we have College basketball which is better to watch anyway

  37. AntiAmericanism and Goodell the ONLY TWO REASONS NFL IN THE DUMPSTER

  38. Dan Hooker says:

    I turn the channel when ever they go to a female reporting from the sideline….feminizing football is ruining viewership.

  39. Kapernickitis. No cure for that and worse than any STD.

  40. Stan Dupp says:

    Although Sean McDonough is a very capable play-by-play man, he’s not right for MNF. There just isn’t enough energy coming across the screen, despite Jon Grudon’s ample contributions. Turico was better, even though his voice was so soft that you could barely hear him and usually couldn’t understand him–but they turned up the crowd noise to provide the energy–and that worked pretty well. Howard Cosell was what made MNF work, and they have struggled ever since he ran out of time.

  41. Sumner Kagan says:

    First year I have not watched a single NFL or college game. Bring back the XFL. Rather see a bunch of average joes playing for the fun of it than the prima donnas the NFL/NCAA is about now.

  42. The NFL is anti-gun, and allows its players to disrespect our flag and our country. I’m pro-America, pro Bill of Rights, and a patriot, so I’ll find other things to do with my time than watch anti-Americanism flaunted in my face by these over-paid primadonnas.

  43. Making a big deal out of inflate gate did not help, and putting politics on the field loses half your fans.

  44. It’s the anti-patriotism. Why do you keep sugar coating it?

  45. This is a simple case of over-saturation. ABC’s Monday Night Football was part football game and part entertainment. You had Howard Cosell, Frank Gifford and “Dandy” Don Meredith. Even if you didn’t like football you would watch just for the banter that took place between the announcers. Now, you have Sunday football, Monday Night Football, and Thursday Night Football. Classic case of taking a good thing and shoving it down our throats. Add to that that Monday Night Football is on ESPN and it’s no wonder ratings are in the tank.

  46. There’s too much anti-American behavior in between their excellent commercials.

  47. Haven’t watched a NFL game all season. Stopped buying from their sponsors. Stopped visiting Home Depot or Lowes and just switched from Papa John pizza to a local pizza restaurant.

    Unlikely to return to the NFL, but might return to the retailers once they drop the NFL.

  48. Doug Day says:

    Brady was suspended over a TRUMP cap.

  49. The NFL is afraid of the thug Colon Blow Kaepernick, just like Americans are afraid of Barack Obama. It just goes to show you that a couple of thugs can mess up the whole works and get away with it.

  50. Bob Smithers says:

    The NFL can thank Krapernick, and their own feckless reaction to disrespect of America by a handful of primadonna millionaire thugs, for their poor ratings. Way to go NFL executive, how’s it feel with lighter wallets, while your multi-millionaire thug Krapper makes multi-millions leading his steam to a LOSING record.

  51. doggeatdogg says:

    Of course the NFL is going to spin this in a way to steer away from the obvious. This has been a long time coming but their arrogance to this date continues to sink the league. It’s not just one thing, it’s everything. Greed between the two entities (players and owners), change of rules that is making this game resemble flag football, capitulating to the politics of players and specifically the protestors disregard for the fans, uneven application of nebulous standards regarding domestic violence, and soon they will report the commissioner made $50M this year. No, the NFL fan does not want to hear that and the NFL fan that elevated the league to the top, will take it down.

  52. Screw Drew Breese..He is just a union hack looking to blame management. The problem is that all the players who want to be Social Justice Warriors. They are a bunch of poseurs. Nobody tunes in to see these wannabes trying to make a political statement and seem relevant by disrespecting the national anthem. ESPN is the worst with all of their leftwing pc hosts and guests.

  53. Joe Dogtek says:

    Pro sports is for the brain dead

  54. mikey0 says:

    Millionaire players disrespecting America is the reason for the drop off in viewership, you morons. Wasn’t there a thing called ‘deflategate’ and Tom Brady was suspended for four games? F Goodell.

  55. “…π‘‘β„Žπ‘œπ‘’π‘”β„Ž π‘‘β„Žπ‘’ π‘Ÿπ‘Žπ‘‘π‘–π‘›π‘”π‘  π‘‘π‘Ÿπ‘œπ‘ π‘“π‘œπ‘Ÿ π‘‘β„Žπ‘’ π‘—π‘’π‘”π‘”π‘’π‘Ÿπ‘›π‘Žπ‘’π‘‘ 𝑁𝐹𝐿 π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘šπ‘Žπ‘–π‘›π‘  π‘Ž π‘šπ‘’π‘™π‘‘π‘–π‘“π‘Žπ‘π‘’π‘‘π‘’π‘‘ π‘β„Žπ‘’π‘›π‘œπ‘šπ‘’π‘›π‘œπ‘›.”
    Rainbow Flags, Gay agendas forced down the family throat, taking a knee, copping out, queer rules, commercials up the wazoo; all, are NOT “phenomenons.” They’re simply what the silent majority is not about! The game used to be “tradition,” and you NEVER break from that, or it will break from you!!
    God Bless America

  56. I’m done with the NFL till they make those spoiled little girls stand up for the National Anthem. Don’t respect America? Watch yourselves.

  57. There is more to this than the few D-bags that refuse to stand for the National Anthem and it may be more to do with the girlie generations that we have been raising since the late 80’s and early 90’s. Remember, these are the idiots wearing skinny jeans and having hair cuts that are “gender confused”.

    Am I shocked that a sport like football is suffering? Nope. This is the age of demasculination of much of the population, where being male is seen as “offensive” to many in the media, and the young tards are buying this garbage, hook, line and sinker.

    Throw in the anti-American protests by million dollar babies, and you lose the white, older conservatives, a portion of the population that is far more harmful than the libtards that would rather watch pageants a karcrashians than a “violent” sport.

    I would like to write more, but I need to find a gender neutral bathroom so I can check out some skirt and not get in trouble for it.

  58. Ken Pelkey says:

    Who wants to watch a bunch of jerk Football Players who have made the big time because they live in America, basically spit in America’s face. Go screw yourselves> I’m fed up with people who dont like MY country. If you hate America so much, get the hell out and don’t come back…loser! There are no guards or no fences keeping you here. You are FREE to leave any time you like!

  59. I’m done with the NFL…bye bye.

  60. Bill Wilson says:

    I started to watch – then ESPN presented their little opening video paean to Barack 0bama. I immediately turned the game off and read a book for the rest of the night. Furthermore, I will never watch one more game on ESPN. I have had enough.

  61. Rudy Katt says:

    Dear NFL…get your country hating players on their feet!

  62. John Smith says:

    At 28 years old I can say with 100% certainty I’m done with the NFL. I don’t care what they say, or what they do. I haven’t watched a single game since week 1. In all honesty though, my life has been exponentially better since I stopped watching. Hats off to everyone who has been participating in the boycott!

  63. Bill Cobb says:

    Not a sport anymore. Not a game anymore, not human anymore. Bring on the robots.

  64. Edward Foley says:

    Greedy NFL players disrespect America. Let them play elsewhere.

  65. Gosh, what a shame. The NFL is losing money – I guess the players will get a cut in pay. That’s great. Nothing like the free market dictating acceptable behavior. God bless America, and especially it’s men and women who protect it’s sovereignty.

  66. We stopped watching after that nappy head disrespected our flag!

  67. Ja Busse says:

    the NFL goes the way of that GD second string QB’s (now starting) record. San Francisco has shown the result of the city’s thinking. LOSERS

  68. Ed Kirk says:

    Goodell should have prohibited those GD political hacks from dishonoring the flag of the US. If they want to protest…..go on CNN. If they want to play in the NFL…..then stand up for America. What a coward.

  69. ESPN took on of the best brands in the country (i.e. MNF) and totally destroyed it. Everything from the opening to the hostess to the commentators. The icing on the cake is the addition of Moss and McDonough (did no think it could get worse after Ray Lewis).

    I like Shawn, just not a good fit for MNF.

    One wonders if they will learn anything from the election results.

  70. Troy Dynes says:

    The drama queens on and off the field have morphed the NFL from a sport to just another lame entertainment product.

  71. Aleric says:

    Why would I want to watch a bunch of over paid black thugs disrespect America when most of them would be in jail if they couldn’t play football.

  72. Doug Smith says:

    The article mentions nothing about the obvious reason many of us watch less and that is the allowing of political statements against the US while not allowing other political statements for police. If the players/teams wanted to be against police then would the NFL have allowed it? Well they are with San Fran’s and other teams being disrespectful to an entire country to push a bs agenda using a sport venue that has no reason to be used politically!!! We are inundated quite enough in the news and social media with politics and do not need nor require it in a game! So, the article is disingenuous in that it covers a reason or 2 but not the elephant in the room. More politics?

  73. Same old BS. Anything but the disrespect to America by it’s players and Commissioner is the reson for the NFL’s decline..

  74. Julie Krohn says:

    I’m tired of the NFL. Too much money being paid. I’ve quit watching.

  75. The NFL should pack their millionaire cry-babies and move to Iran with the other America haters!

  76. Tree Fidy says:

    I’m not watching any NFL until they apologize for disrespecting our National Anthem, Our Flag, and the Republic for which it stands. Until the NFL issues a public apology they get the finger from our household.

  77. Neuro Mancer says:

    As long as Kaepernick plays I’m not watching.

    The Superbowl may have OK ratings but that’s just for the commercials.

  78. Bill Sly says:

    Can you here me now NFL? I am the silent majority and I vote with my feet. The new president Trump only highlights this. Football is not as important as my country is! I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more!

  79. (1) The NFL MULTI-Millionaires can RESPECT America or GET OUT.
    (2) Boycotts are the most Democratic and PEACEFUL of actions.
    (3) Boycotts are FREEDOM of SPEECH.
    (4) Boycotts are FREEDOM of ASSOCIATION — DISassociation.
    (5) Boycotts are VOTING with dollars.
    (6) Boycotts PEACEFULLY withhold “power/energy” from those with whom one disagrees without engaging in violence.
    (7) In “Capitalism”, the system we CLAIM to follow, where and with whom you spend your money is ENTIRELY up to YOU.
    The Citizens United Supreme Court decision firmly established that the right to spend money is a form of free speech. That means that the right to NOT spend money is also a form of free speech. Organizing a boycott — an act of NOT spending money — is then protected free speech in the same way that soliciting campaign funds to spend on promoting a political candidate or partisan viewpoint is free speech.

  80. Churyl Minne says:

    They still play NFL games other than on Sunday afternoons? Who’d have thunk it?

  81. Hugh Tjardon says:

    The NFL has turned itself into a make-work project for ignorant, over-sized, and violent blacks.

  82. John Wilson says:

    “NFL Ratings Continue To Drop With Bills-Seahawks Monday Night Football”

    Just can’t imagine why.

  83. Too many rules and too much leftist dribble seeping into commentary.

  84. I see games scheduled for 3.5 to 4 hours now….game is boring and riddled with penalties; that and the kneeling down and protests that the NFL should not allow once the teams have come onto the field until the end of the game (Christians can go to midfield and pray; the lefties can go to the end zones and kneel etc). is the final straw……NFL is starting it’s inevitable decline ….

  85. Keep taking those knees boys. You’re making your point. Losing your jobs but making your point.

    ((sigh))

    Idiots.

  86. I for one am tired of multi million dollars player celebrating like they are GOD’s gift to the world when they score a TD, run for a first down, or catch a pass when they are wide open. What about the rest of the TEAM? Then you add in the stupid rule changes and the political protests why would you watch. Defense can not lead with the head but offensive running backs can, wide receivers can use they for-arms and ultimately there hands but def can not. Besides you have these stupid rule regards to hitting the QB just so the owners protect there high piece players.

  87. Chriss Ross says:

    After the fine patriotic performance of MLB and the world series, the NFL can drop dead. Who needs them.

  88. Guess their persistent Leftist agenda finally caught up. After 23 years, I’m done. Too much “political correctness”, too many flags, way too much dancing, and exponentially too many close ups of 350lb behemoths sweating & spitting.
    They paraded these fabricated ‘so-called’ stars as announcers, analysts, commentators when, with most of them, running fast is all they’re capable.

    The game is worse with millionaires playing. I’m done.

  89. The America hating NFL can go eff themselves.

  90. Everyone needs to read what was found in the Wikileaks Podesta emails. Search YouTube for Podesta Pizza or Spirit Cooking. Clinton and everyone around her are pure evil. This election was not just about saving our country but it was literally a war against the principalities of darkness.

  91. the reason no one watches MNF is that the coverage sucks. The commentators have nothing good to say, the camera work is sub par (I don’t want to focus on a player’s chin while they’re in the huddle and they miss all the action) the graphics are antiquated and they don’t have any interesting statistics or stories to add to the action. They also don’t do interesting replays.
    CBS, NBC, and Fox all do it much better. Move MNF to one of them and an I would bet that viewership would go up.

  92. Please keep ignoring the anthem protests and we will continue to ignore the NFL. Happy Birthday USMC.

  93. Its not only the protests, the game is sloppy. I think the reduced practice time in the the last CBA has really effected the product on the field. The officiating is awful as well.
