After week 3…the toll of politics invading Professional Football has reduced it to a game of “who cares” as American’s tire of the constant attacks. Lindsey Thiry – an LA Times reporter – snapped a picture of the relatively empty stadium just before kick off at last nights game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams. Those are empty seats all in red.

Last year, the third game was against the SeaHawks and the crowd was considerably larger and more robust. No doubt the San Francisco 49ers are hemorrhaging profit. All because politics had to be inserted into sports.
Of course, the antics of Kapernick has taken it’s toll on the 49’ers who once tried to make history in 2015 by being the first Super Bowl host team to play the championship game on its own home field.
Do you think Kapernick and others should leave their politics OUT of sports?
