The National Football League’s regular season is now over, and a final assessment of in-stadium attendance is not good. No, it’s not good at all.

With the league’s regular season games finally in the history books, the numbers seem to show that attendance fell to new lows this year.

According to numbers reported by Sports Business Daily’s Austin Karp, this year’s game attendance is the lowest since 2011. Ouch.

The most embarrassing attendance tumble this year was experienced by the Washington Redskins whose attendance is down 19 percent over last year’s numbers. Fans have been remarking all year how empty the stadium seems to be for the Skins.

Other attendance problems were seen by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, down nine percent, and the Cincinnati Bengals, down five percent.

Karp also noted that the Dallas Cowboys leads the league in fan support and has since owner Jerry Jones inaugurated AT&T Stadium in 2009.

Not every team lost support. Karp also noted that the L.A. Chargers grew by 29 percent and the Rams are up 14 percent.

Granted the improvement for the Chargers does not obviate the fact that the team has some of the smallest crowds in the league.

There was one small bright spot.

On the other hand, TV ratings finally stopped their two years of plummeting and even rose a tiny five percent overall. So, at least the league has that bright spot.

New Poll From Virginia Has Bloomberg Tied For Lead With Sanders

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders, who enjoyed a victory in New Hampshire’s primary and a good showing in Iowa, is tied for the top spot in a Virginia poll with former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Virginia is one of the larger states to be holding a primary on Super Tuesday in two weeks. Check out the details from Fox News: Former Vice President Joe Biden stands at 18 percent in the poll, just 4 percentage points behind Sanders and Bloomberg. Their slight edge over the former vice president is within the survey’s sampling error. According to the poll, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg registers at 11 percent, with Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota at 9 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts at 5 percent, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii at just 1 percent and billionaire environmental and progressive advocate Tom Steyer at less than 1 percent.

Sanders – the populist senator from Vermont who’s making his second straight White House run – stands at 22 percent support among likely Democratic presidential primary voters in Virginia’s March 3 primary, according to a Monmouth University survey released Tuesday morning. So does Bloomberg, the billionaire Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat who announced his presidential bid less than three months ago. Former Vice President Joe Biden stands at…

DOJ Launches Five Probes Into Investigators Involved In Mueller Russia Probe

Published

on

Several of the investigators involved in the Mueller Russia probe, Ukraine investigation, and matters related to Hillary Clinton and her various scandals around the 2016 presidential election are all being investigated by the Department of Justice. As you can imagine, the left is probably very nervous about this, hoping that whatever conclusions are reached do not expose further activities by the “resistance” within the government working against the Trump administration. Check out the details from Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr appointed the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeff Jensen to review the case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Justice Department officials told Fox News that Jensen will work hand-in-hand with Brandon Van Grack — the lead prosecutor on the Flynn case — during his review. Barr last week confirmed that the Justice Department is reviewing information about Ukraine coming from President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and others. Barr has tapped U.S. Attorney from the Western District of Pennsylvania Scott Brady to handle that Ukraine information. That review comes after the president was acquitted on charges — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — stemming from the Ukraine controversy. Last year, Barr appointed U.S. Attorney from Connecticut John Durham to review the events leading up to the 2016 presidential election and through Trump’s January 20, 2017 inauguration. But, as Fox News first reported, Durham has since expanded his investigation to cover a post-election timeline spanning the spring of 2017 — when Mueller was appointed as special counsel. Another probe looking into the Clinton Foundation is also still underway, along with further looks into the granting of a FISA warrant during the Russia probe and Clinton server document release. These are all shady incidents that desperately need further examination to expose any political corruption…
