    I selected the wrong one since I am not even in San Diego anymore, so I won't be at any games except the one here in Denver when the Chargers beat up on Tebow. But if I was still in SD, this wouldn't change my mind about buying season tickets or not. I only gave them up because I moved away

    I will cotinue to pay for my season tickets to the Chargers and Cardinals. Sitback and wait for two sides to get something done. If they miss regular season games I may have to think about the NFL as a entertainment option. I was not happy with MLB but I still go to Padres games, 20 a season but that is a much different game day experience. But to answer the question I will wait and see and if these guys screw the pooch I may take my money back and spend it on travel.

    It is a bit a turnoff, and let down. But I'll watch it once the NFL returns, even if mid season, etc. Until then, my Sundays will be free to do other stuff, as I am not a couch potato.

    Meh. It's all nonsense to me.

    I'll pay for my tickets, but if there's not football, you bet your *** I'm getting my money back.

    I just got another statement that it's time pay for the next installment that's due on March 28th. I guess it's business as usual for the people that are raking in the $$$$. Is there a handbook or something that describes how fans should react in event of a lockout? I'll bet you can get it on NFL.com for a nominal fee, plus shipping...

    Just send them a letter instead of the money, telling them to kiss your a$$ and that the moment a new CBA is in place, they can feel free to send you a bill

    I'll even get you a link of a site that shows all of the CFL games for free. Last season, NFL network only showed one game per week.

    To whom it may concern:

    My name is David Allison my Season Ticket account number is 1678XX.

    What a sad day this is. I regret to inform you that I am no longer interested in throwing my money away!!!! I have been a season ticket holder since 1980 and that will no longer be the case. I am asking you to please refund the $371.00 that I have all ready paid you for my 2011 Season Tickets. I no longer want to have my name affiliated with the NFL in any way shape or form. You guy’s could careless about us the fans! Your talk is cheap and the actions speak.

    to be honest. I figured there'd be a lockout. And a big battle from then. I think they all can still get things figured out if it goes to court and the owners finally come clean on how much they really are making. Then you have a stance in which to value who should get paid what.

    Somewhere in the depths of my wardrobe I have a Roughriders tee. I wrote to them in about 1991 asking for one and they just sent me it.

    The product is just too good to stay away from when it returns. If there is an exteneded lockout the pent up demand for the product will only grow and it will be more popular than ever upon its return.

    Will be a big boost for the college game while they are out. Maybe some college games will be played on Sunday.

    At least I won't have to go into work tired on Monday mornings next fall.
