No Fan Left or No Fans Left (National Football League or NFL nickname)

The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league, headquartered in New York City. The NFL has been dubbed “No Fan Left” or “No Fans Left” by those who do not like the league. “No Fan(s) Left” was popularized in the fall of 2017, when many fans were angered when some NFL players kneeled during the national anthem.

“NFL = No Fans Left?” was posted on the newsgroup rec.sport.football.pro on November 9, 1995. “@NFLCommish is ruining this league.  Soon NFL will stand for No Fans Left. #NFL #GoodellMustGo #Steelers” was posted on Twitter on October 20, 2010. “The NFL will have to change its name to No Fans Left if they don’t start next season on time. #nofansleft #NFL” was posted on Twitter on March 4, 2011.

“‘No Fan Left’ Why I Gave Up The NFL” was posted on Twitter on December 2, 2014. “#NoFanLeft” was posted on Twitter on September 23, 2017.

Other NFL nicknames include “National Felons League,” “NFHell,” “Not For Long,” “No Fan Loyalty” and “No Fun League.”


Wikipedia: National Football League
The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league consisting of 32 teams, divided equally between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). The NFL is one of the four major professional sports leagues in North America, and the highest professional level of American football in the world. The NFL’s 17-week regular season runs from early September to late December, with each team playing 16 games and having one bye week. Following the conclusion of the regular season, six teams from each conference (four division winners and two wild card teams) advance to the playoffs, a single-elimination tournament culminating in the Super Bowl, which is usually held in the first Sunday in February, and is played between the champions of the NFC and AFC.

Wikipedia: U.S. national anthem protests (2016–present)
The protests began in the National Football League (NFL) after San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat and later kneeled during the anthem, as opposed to the tradition of standing, before his team’s preseason games of 2016. Throughout the 2016 season, members of various NFL and other sports teams have engaged in similar silent protests. On September 24, 2017, the NFL protests became more widespread when over 200 players sat or kneeled in response to Donald Trump’s calling for owners to fire the protesting players.

NFL = No Fans Left?

I have faithfully watched NFL football games every week for as long as I can remember. But I won’t be watching this week. And I don’t think I iwll watch any more games this year. And I am sure when next season rolls around I won’t want to watch then either. I can no longer look at the NFL with any respect. As you might of guessed, all of this anger is because of the team formerly known as the Cleveland Browns. I have been a fan, a season ticket holder, a member of the dog pound and 1 of 70,000 true fans that would show up each week to watch our beloved Browns. But now, I have no team to root for so I might as well not even be a fan at all.

7 September 1997, The Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN), “Noteworthy,” pg. D10:
NFL (NO FANS LEFT): At its current rate, the NFL could soon stand for No Fans Left.
