QUICK KICK: NFL Lockout to Cause Big Problems for Small Businesses

by Brad Sullivan

As an NFL Lockout draws closer it’s amazing how many people are going to be affected by this catastrophe.

There are the obvious losers: the fans, tax payers, team employees, coaches; heck even officials will be affected if a new CBA is not reached by March 3rd.

Go ahead and add small business owners to that list.

Michael Sinesky a small business owner recently wrote a column for the Huffington Post on this dynamic.  Sinensky writes: “Here’s how it works out. Without football, Sundays average only about $2,000 in revenue. With football during the regular season, we average a whopping 600 percent more or approximately $12,000 on any given Sunday.”

The NFL needs to realize that what they do has a large affect on not only football fans, but the economy as well. As the deadline approaches it looks like there will not be a CBA reached by March 3rd and there could be no football next season.

Fans, tax payers, team employees, coaches, officials and small business owners should head to www.SaveNextSeason.com to make their voice heard.
