Way to be first in line, BWW. You don't have to be a brain surgeon or a marketing director to know what kind of an impact a lockout would have on restaurants, hotels, gas stations, shopping centers, city and state taxes, parking fines, vendors selling terrible cheap stuff in the first place, and oh yeah, the football operation. This all said, I still like BWW TV ads. They're pretty funny.

This is why there's no way the season will be interrupted by a lock out. Never mind the players, etc. There will be much more pressure from OUTSIDE the league. Way too much money at stake/invested for corporate America (and International) and the TV networks to "allow" the owners to continue with a lock out.

When the NFL was negotiating with the networks they should have struck some kind of deal with Buffalo Wild Wings too. A certain amount of wings guaranteed to be sold "wether or not any games are played" Then the judge could have put a temporary hold on the wings once it was determined it was not done in the best interest of the players. LOL

See what you've done NFL? Now another billion dollar enterprise is complaining that they need more money at the expense of the NFL fan! Maybe next year tickets will be 50% higher and 6 wings with fries will cost $12.50 so everybody in question can be happy?

10% of their sales? sounds like another business will sorely the miss the vikes if we allow them to leave.

Many could care less about BWW's business impacts. Its "all part of the game". Maybe ending the lockout could divert folks' attention from their lost jobs, lost homes and crippled retirement plans thnks to our gov't concerns about Wall Street and Banks. Ask Wall Street for a bailout, BWW. Meanwhile, the public will buy its wings at Costco.

"10% of their sales? sounds like another business will sorely the miss the vikes if we allow them to leave. posted by oneyedvike" ----- I don't think the customers at BWW care where the TV show is coming from.

Our entertainment dollars WILL be spent!!! Even if there is a lockout, our entertainment dollars WILL be spent!!! Our entertainment dollars may be spent differently, but our entertainment dollars WILL be spent!!! They might get spent in other ways, in other places, but our entertainment dollars WILL be spent!!! Instead of sitting in a joint eating wings and drinking beer, some may take a kid fishing, or duck hunting, or to the zoo, or.... To the big shots at BWW, I say "You're not entitled to ANYTHING!"
