wrecker Posted February 10, 2011 Share Posted February 10, 2011 The owners have prepared for fan backlash. The players haven't. I remember a report early on that suggested owners were prepared for a year off from football. Now I'm not sure if they're prepared for the fan reaction to such an event, but they could still survive a year. I highly doubt the players are prepared for this lockout, but that's life.What is occurring now has probably hurt some sales already, and we'll see more. Fans won't want to buy new jersey's, sports packages, etc. Local bars will suffer, because many live on the amount of money that is generate by sales during the football season. Things are leveling out, and other entertainment options may benefit. Baseball, basketball, MMA, hockey...they all have gains to be made while the NFL suffers. Fans, we have choices, and my choice is to do what I do in the offseason. Sleep, drink and be merry...and work too. Owners are prepared for a year off of football but are they prepared for a year of football with no fans? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
