Dear NFL Commissioner and NFL Owners,
We the fans of the NFL, demand that you NOT lock out players in 2011. The players want to play football and we passionately want to see America’s most popular sport.
As fans and members of our local communities, a lockout would have a devastating impact on our local and regional economies. Stadium employees will be jobless, and sports bars, police officers, restaurants, hotels and various support staff who work for this game will also be affected. Simply put, these tough times will get even tougher for Americans.
It is estimated that more than 150,000 jobs would be impacted by a lockout and cause more than $140 million in lost revenue in each NFL city.
We implore you to do the right thing and guarantee that players, fans and everyone who enjoys the NFL will not have to endure a lockout in 2011.
