Several NFL Stadiums Half Full or Worse
The NFL entered Week 7 today and it's obvious the backlash against players kneeling for the national anthem continues.
Here are a few tweets from around the league showing fans voting with their pocketbooks by not purchasing game tickets, leading to half-full -- or worse -- stadiums.

Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets
Cleveland Browns vs. Tennessee Titans
Indianapolis Colts vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Carolina Panthers vs. Chicago Bears
As the tweet mentions, the Bears usually sell out. In fact, over the years, Bears games were the toughest ticket in town. Season tickets were willed to family members because there was a waiting list.
I am convinced that an unknown percentage of these empty seats are due to the anthem protests. But there are other factors in play, not the least of which is the price of a game ticket. The average price for a Bears ticket is the highest in the league at $131. Not exactly family friendly at those prices.
Still, some of those pics are unbelievable.
