NFL stadiums empty as identity politics eats away at football ticket sales

When millionaire athletes virtue signal, this is the result.

Several NFL stadiums around the NFL were near empty during week 7 of the season, as fan backlash stemming from the national anthem controversy continues to hit the ticket sales.
