These "should'' be the reasons for the NFL's decline in TV ratings:

• Commissioner Roger Goodell is a despot who takes pleasure in stealing money from players who endanger limbs and a long life to make the owners rich.

• Every dramatic athletic feat you witness is subject to being nullified two seconds later by the revelation of a penalty.

• Netflix and Amazon have better entertainment. Spend this Sunday watching "Goliath'' with Billy Bob. Outstanding.
