I feel the same way about all sport now. It is galling to watch these pampered and privileged athletes use their position to inject politics into the sport and insult at least half of the audience. I have turned off, I would rather go watch kids in the park.How toxic is the NFL? Coke, Audi, and Avocados from Mexico have refused to buy ANY Super Bowl ads this year, while Pepsi and Budweiser have reduced their ads by more than half. Yep, that's toxic.
Man, it seems another universe when I enjoyed watching Super Bowl commercials. (That '1984' Apple ad still sends chills up my spine.) But that was when I enjoyed football. Man, I planned my whole LIFE around Niner's games; once nearly broke an ankle racing down the street to get Jerry Rice's autograph, etc. But now? Now I wouldn't attend a Niner's game if you paid me.

For a split second, hearing the ad boycott for Super Bowl, I thought 'maybe this will wake the NFL up!' But that thought crashed at once.
