NFL Labor Watch: Teams Moving Ahead With Ticket Sales For Next Season

Giants sent out PSL e-mail Thursday ahead of CBA expiration
Packers season-ticket holders "will still need to pay for their 2011 seats, and the National Football League will still release this season's schedule, despite the gridlock over" the CBA, according to Tony Walter of the GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE. Packers Assistant Dir of Corporate Communications & PR Aaron Popkey: "We continue to plan for the 2011 season." That means the March 31 deadline for season-ticket holders to pay for their seats for the upcoming season "remains in effect." NFL Dir of Corporate Communications Dan Masonson said that the league "will again release its 2011 regular-season schedule in April" (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE, 3/4). In N.Y., Ralph Vacchiano reports many Giants fans Thursday "awoke to an email from the team hawing expensive" PSLs "just 15 hours before a possible NFL lockout that could have put the [season] in jeopardy" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 3/4). In Florida, Erin Hawley reported concern that the potential lockout "could hurt Jaguars ticket sales has subsided," as former Jaguars OT Tony Boselli said that the team "has a refund plan in place should games be canceled." Jaguars Senior VP/Sales & Marketing Macky Weaver said that season-ticket sales are "holding strong; within a few hundred of last year's numbers" (FIRSTCOASTNEWS.com, 3/3).

MORE FURLOUGHS POSSIBLE: In Phoenix, Kent Somers reports Cardinals employees "would go on a one-week furlough in May if the lockout was ongoing, and most members of the coaching staff would take pay cuts of about" 30% (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 3/4).
