Despite a dream match-up with the NFL’s number one offense in Kansas City and Patrick Mahomes vs Tom Brady, Super Bowl ratings plunged 15% to the lowest level since 2007. The apologists are blaming Covid reduced viewing parties, cord cutting and the bad game (KC’s injury ravaged O-line grounded its offense). I’m calling BS. The NFL better watch out: this is the warning shot. The entire event was desultory. Non-stop tributes to the Wuhan Flu and racialist BLM driven virtue signaling. Even the ads stunk for the most part. The broadcast was depressing and the game worse. You won’t find many bigger football fans, and even I found the event unwatchable, and I had a dog in the fight: the Chiefs who I have been with from a small boy during their first Super Bowl run in 1969. The 2020 Super Bowl was a joy for us long-suffering Chiefs’ fans. 2021 felt like a funeral for the NFL.
Make no mistake: as I warned the far-left Marxists are trying to take over and ruin sports, just like they ruin everything. If the NFL doesn’t watch out it will be destroyed. The playoffs were devoid of all the leftist silliness, but the Super Bowl was ruined by it.
