The NFL is getting hammered after another game was played in a half-empty stadium

“Thursday Night Football” gave football fans something of a surprise as the San Francisco 49ers hosted the Los Angeles Rams at Levi’s Stadium in a barn-burner of a football game, ending with an enthralling fourth quarter by the Niners before falling just short of completing the comeback.

The Rams’ 41-39 victory was a shootout – and some of the most exciting “Thursday Night Football” fans had seen in recent memory, featuring a successful onside-kick attempt, late turnovers, and a backdoor cover that sent gamblers home either elated or furious.

But the game also served as a reminder of one of the NFL’s recent woes: poor attendance.

Shots of the stadium, like the one above, made clear that attendance was dismal for the primetime game. Despite claims that attendance was over 70,000, anyone with eyes could see that the stadium was largely empty, with even some of the best seats in the lower bowl left untaken.

  1. The stadium isn’t the one in the story, and you can clearly see by the scoreboard that the game hasn’t even started yet, so no wonder the place isn’t full yet. Not to mention that the Rams-49ers game being talked about was before all the anti-Trump knee-taking started happening.
