NFL football ratings

Daily blog: NFL football games are usually the most-watched TV shows and consistently score high ratings. Last year there was a drop in ratings and this year they are down even more – viewers for the first two weeks of Sunday afternoon NFL games dropped 11% from last year. Sunday night’s week 3 game between the Redskins and the Raiders had the lowest week 3 ratings since 2006.
What are some reasons that viewer numbers for televised NFL games might be dropping? Why are decreased ratings important to the NFL’s profits

The NFL football games have been talked about a lot in the past 2 weeks. The reason why viewers have quit watching is because of the players actions. During the National Anthem, the players have been taking a knee instead of standing up with their hand over their hearts. The reason they are doing this is because of race discrimination. People don´t want to watch the games because the players are showing disrespect to our country. Decreased rating are very important to the NFL´s profits because they are losing money when fans stop watching.

Ticket prices

Daily blog: In recent years the prices charged for tickets have skyrocketed:
Major college football games, such as Alabama vs Texas A&M, can cost $770 each.
New York Yankee fans can pay as much as $500 per seat.
Tickets to see singer Taylor Swift in concert range from $258 to $1358 apiece.
Why do you think tickets for concerts and sporting events cost so much?

I think that tickets cost this much because it takes a lot of money to put on these shows and for everyone to get paid and make revenue then the prices have to be more expensive. The more you pay the better the show you will receive.

steven tyler

Daily blog: Read the article attached to this post. What do you think about a hard rock singer opening in Nashville? Nashville is considered to be the center of country music. Do you think the Nashville Film Festival is focused on country music or all genres? Do you think Tyler would have been selected if he was still only doing rock? Watch the movie trailer if time permits  

I absolutely love Steven Tyler and I think it is awesome that he is opening in nashville. His new album has changed in genre from rock to country but i think it is amazing. I think that the Nashville film festival is focused on country music but steven tyler is not known for his country music. This is a way to show that he is testing out the water in a new genre and it can give him and the festival more publicity. It is focusing on a larger target market now since there is a singer with a different tone. I do not think he would have been selected if he was still doing only rock.
