Restaurant Chain Wants Season to Be Saved

June 20th, 2011

Two recent posts on (here and here) have examined the economic impact the NFL’s lockout has on constituent groups beyond just players and owners. Businesses that depend on the NFL are rightfully concerned about America’s favorite sport—and whether it will be saved.

Buffalo Wild Wings, which launched a “Save Our Season” petition containing nearly 17,000 signatures, wants NFL owners and players to come to an agreement soon. It has written an open letter to both sides, urging them to have a deal by July 20—one month from today.

The popular restaurant chain has even promised free wings to each signer of the petition if the parties come to an agreement and return to football by July 20.

As estimated by The Sports Networker, approximately 1.25 billion wings were eaten on Super Bowl Sunday this year, amounting to nearly $250 million.

Count Buffalo Wild Wings among the many voices that want to see the lockout lifted, and players return to the field.
