I watched every Celtics game and thought it was a great product personally, that said I didnít watch any other game played by a non-Celtics team. Definitely have 0 interest in watching a lakers sweep.
Iím having a hard time watching football, really just checking my fantasy score is about as much as I do, and even that Iím a lot less interested in. Iím more likely to turn on a Bucs game then Pats game solely because I know there are only a few games left Brady will play in his career and the Pats will always be there. If Brady was 10 years younger Iíd probably care less what he was doing as well.
I cut cable once covid hit and itís been harder to watch games, furthermore I just care a lot less about sports in general.
Iím pretty indifferent to BLM, the on court protests, political stuff etc. and for me that wouldnít change the fact if I watch a game or not. That said I know a lot of people who refuse to watch because of the constant Ďpoliticalnessí of it all and I definitely think the stand the NBA Decided to take has hurt its viewership. Keep in mind these are north east fans who said, no thanks.. imagine how many more in the red states are refusing to watch for that reason alone?
The no fans thing never really phased me, it was weird at first but I didnít even notice after about a half of basketball. Itís probably a little more weird for NFL games but even so wouldnít be the reason if I watched or not.
Interest just isnít there, there are bigger issues in the world these days.
