If the Union de-certifies, will this end the ability of the owners to enforce a lock-out?
Pay now, and maybe you'll actually get the product at some point. That's very gracious of them.
I don't think it would stop it, just allow the players to sue the owners and the league.
Why did they need to announce this? What else are they going to do, keep the money?
Purely a PR move to let the union and players know that the lockout is being readied for.
A little psychology.
Not getting my money next year, for sure.
Definitely a by product of the announcement, but good business to have a policy shaping up for the ~1.25m season ticket holders across the 32 teams. The folks that shell out this jack are probably the type of folks that like to buy with a guarantee when it comes to up front purchases.
I'm still on the fence to purchase season tickets next season. I've been season ticket owner for Jags since 1996. I just don't trust either NFL or the Players Union. I would not want to buy tickets to watch sub-par players/scrubs or deal with a refund if there is no football next year. I'll wait and see approach.
Who knows - maybe well get to watch Shane Falco......
Now, that would be an upgrade from what we have had to endure this year.
Even with a "refund," be assured that the owners will still make money on your money, investing it during those months that they are "babysitting" it.............and you will have lost the same opportunity.
