Only took the guy a year, bad publicity, huge drop in ratings/viewership, pissed-off fans, loss of NFL brand profits, advertisers pulling out, and upheaval between franchise owners and players.
ESPN’s continuing political hack, Jemele Hill, couldn’t help (again) but take her rhetoric to Twitter and tweet against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for ordering his team’s players to stand for the National Anthem or sit the bench for the game(s). ESPN has benched her for two weeks … Their ratings and subscriptions are way down too.
