NFL Player shows up to training camp in 1931 Rolls-Royce with personal driver. Will American men still watch this shit?

Athletes are competitive, and two Pittsburgh Steelers stars tried to out-do each other for the best arrival at training camp Thursday.

In this corner is receiver Antonio Brown, who the past few years has taken to showing up to camp at Latrobe, Pennsylvania, in a Rolls-Royce.

He outdid himself this year, showing up in what Steelers Wire reported was a 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom four-door convertible. Oh, he had a personal driver too. That car would cost, based on average auction prices at conceptcarz.com, about $222,000.00

Outside linebacker James Harrison arrived with a splash too. He got to camp by driving in a fire truck, sirens and all.

ESPN survey finds Anthem protests led poll of reasons viewers tuned out

National anthem protests were the top reason that NFL fans watched fewer games last season, according to a new survey released by J.D. Power.

The pollster said it asked more than 9,200 people who attended either one football, basketball or hockey game whether they tuned into fewer games and why.

Twenty-six percent of those who watched fewer games last season said that national anthem protests, some of which were led by Colin Kaepernick, were the reason.

After that, 24 percent of those surveyed who said they watched fewer games said they did so either because of the league’s off-the-field image issues with domestic violence or with game delays, including penalties.

One in five (20 percent) listed excessive commercials and advertising as a reason, something the NFL is seeking to address by moving around traditional ad blocks.

ONLY Five percent said they watched fewer games because they got rid of cable.

And in related news…

Those declining NFL TV ratings last season are apparently still being felt this year, as a recent report indicates advance TV commercial sales for the 2017 season are the worst they’ve been in a decade.
