Yup. Might as well start watching the Ladies National Needlepoint League now. Don't think Hundley can carry them and if they put Keapernick in there I will burn my packers doll.

They got some time off after the next game so, I think its best to keep Hundley in there and WORK him...

I'm not saying the NFL is, oh what word can I use,,, hmmm, caring, fair, in favor of their fans, yada, yada, yada, but it's just a small part of, inhumanity, no, problems we have in this great country.
So, I believe if you or most likely many others, want to boycott the NFL, good for you. As for me, I'll keep watching, it goes good with a beer.
maybe some are watching and perhaps others aren't bothered by what's going on, but a significant number are ticked off:

Backlash: Week 6 of the NFL Reveals Several Nearly Empty Stadiums As Fans Continue to Leave the League

AP Photo/Jeff Chiu

by Dylan Gwinn16 Oct 20175,340
The NFL likely hoped for a return to normalcy for Week 6, especially after Commissioner Goodell?s call to ?move past the anthem controversy,? and address the issue in detail at league meetings on Tuesday. Instead, what the NFL got was a return to what has become the ?new normal? in the age of anthem protests: empty seats.

Throughout the league, stadiums could be seen with thousands of empty seats at kickoff, and, in some cases in the middle of the game.
Here is a pic with several empty, or near empty stadiums at kickoff on Sunday:
Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn?t buy tickets for those games.
Here?s a shot of the Jaguars stadium at kickoff:
Granted, this is Jacksonville and they?ve never really packed the house. Yet, even by Jaguars standards, that?s empty. The fact that those same levels of emptiness can be seen at other stadiums throughout the league, means that the fan backlash against the NFL has now turned everyone into Jacksonville.

I think it's gonna happen as it seems ownership is tired of his antics and don't want to give him $50M
