For employees at ESPN, this must be looking a little like their own private version of the ‘Black October’ financial crisis in 2008.
They are getting HAMMERED on their bottom line.
In October ALONE ESPN lost 480,000 subscribers.
For perspective, that’s a loss of 15,0000 a DAY.
In October, for EVERY MINUTE of EVERY DAY, ten subscribers cancelled.
If you’ve got money in ESPN, it’s something to worry about. Especially when live sports are one of the few compelling reasons left for some to NOT ‘cut the cord’.
What do you think could POSSIBLY be driving that, do you suppose?
It’s going to get worse before it gets better.
A lot worse.
Not that we really care anymore. We’ve moved on. You made your choice, and the (former) fans made theirs.
NASCAR, NHL, and even Golf are not going out of their way to alienate the fan base. If you’re wondering where they went, you could look there.
The rest will have turned off the TV completely, and are probably enjoying life outside. Maybe on a boat, at the range, or in the woods, possibly as participants of life, and not spectators.
A shirt that aptly describes the NFL — No Fans Left.
Buy yours here.
NFL’s TV ratings are plummeting as more players refuse to stand for the national anthem. It’s hard to believe that a nation that has given these players the opportunity to achieve so much is so easily disrespected. Even worse, consider the men and women who have laid down their lives so that these athletes could live in a relatively safe country and enjoy their fame and fortune.
Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want to watch a bunch of whiners play football. They want to watch winners.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
