CLOCK IS TICKING: In Jacksonville, Gene Frenette noted the Jaguars' season-ticket sales during the lockout are "trickling in at about 150 per week." The team "still needs to sell about 17,000 season, group or single-game tickets to avoid the dreaded blackouts." Jaguars Senior VP/Stadium Operations & CFO Bill Prescott is "convinced the franchise can reach the blackout number despite the clock ticking against them" (JACKSONVILLE.com, 7/9).
LOCKING IN THEIR TICKETS: In Minneapolis, Jerry Zgoda reports due to the NBA lockout, the T'Wolves have "offered season-ticket holders the same priced tickets for the 2012-13 season if they've agreed to pay for this upcoming season." The team also will "keep money paid for this next season in an account where it will earn a 6 percent 'loyalty reward' to be credited for concessions and merchandise" after a new CBA is reached (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 7/12).
