When the NHL goes away: the NFL and the next big wave of sports cars
The NBA’s NBA Finals rematch is only weeks away, and the NBA Finals are still a long way from being over.
The last time an NBA Finals game was played on the main stage was back in 1995, when the Boston Celtics and the New Jersey Nets won their respective titles in Game 7.
This time around, the NBA will be playing at the Verizon Center, a venue that is also home to the Minnesota Timberwolves, and a venue where many of the top athletes in the world train and compete.
If you’re a fan of either the NBA or the NFL, then you’ll have to wait a little longer to see the big event.
The NFL will also have to play the final regular season game of the year, on Sunday, August 3, 2019, which means the league will be one of the last major sports leagues in North America to play at its original venue.
And the last time we saw the big show was back on January 6, 2020, when a full stadium of 20,000 fans turned out to see LeBron James’ historic Game 7 triumph over the Golden State Warriors.
While many fans might be expecting the NBA to be a bigger draw than ever before, it seems that the league is more concerned with keeping fans from tuning in for the games.
There’s a reason for that: attendance for most of the NBA’s marquee events is actually down in the second half of the season.
There have been a few recent big-name events, like the Super Bowl, but attendance has been trending downwards ever since the NFL’s recent lockout.
And even though the NBA has been able to hold more of its marquee events on the road than ever, the league still hasn’t had a World Series since 2010.
For the most part, the NFL is doing much better.
The league’s ratings are up, and ratings have been trending upwards for the past several years, even though viewership has dropped.
In 2017, the viewership for the NFL was down 9 percent, while the NFL average for primetime was down 20 percent, according to Sports Business Daily.
But as the years have gone by, that trend has accelerated.
Since 2012, the average number of viewers for the 2017 NFL games was down 8 percent, and average ratings for the season were down 18 percent.
That trend has continued over the past few years.
In 2020, the season average for the NBA was down 16 percent and the average for prime time was down 13 percent.
And by 2019, the 2017 season average was down 15 percent and average viewership was down 22 percent.
In the same period, the ratings for NBA primetime were down 9.6 percent and for prima time were down 11.7 percent.
The ratings for all games during the 2016-17 season were up 20 percent and in 2018, the 2016 season average had an average of 8.3 million viewers and the 2016 primetime average had 8.5 million viewers.
This year, the games are back on the schedule and it looks like the viewership is on the rise.
But it’s still nowhere near as high as it used to be.
The average viewership for most games for the 2016 and 2017 seasons is down 10 percent, which is up from a year ago.
And in 2018 and 2019, viewership for all of the games averaged 5.4 million and 5.3 millions, respectively.
The 2017 season averaged 5 million viewers, and last year it averaged 4.6 million viewers for primas, and 2.7 million viewers last year for prime.
But this year, it is down 9 million viewers in prime time.
And that’s despite the fact that the NBA and NFL have been able play a lot more games.
The NBA averaged 549,000 viewers for all regular season games last year, down from 551,000 last year.
And for all primetime games, the audience for the 2020-21 season averaged 2.9 million viewers with a 2.2 million rating, down 13.5 percent from the year before.
The numbers for primers are even more interesting.
The number of games in primetime averaged 539,000 in 2020, down 17 percent from last year and down 23 percent from this year.
But the number of primers per game dropped from 7.3 in 2020 to 5.2 last year; and it is up to 4.4 in 2018.
In 2019, it was down from 4.2 to 4, but in 2020 it was up from 4 to 4 last year (5.1 for primes), down 19 percent from 20 years ago.
In 2018, it dropped from 5.5 to 4 and it’s up to 5 this year (6.0 for primates).
And it’s the only time in history that the average viewership dropped in both seasons of a full season, and it did it in 2018 in prime and in 2020 in primas.
