Giants throw their fans a bone during lockout

Should NFL season-ticket holders have to pay to renew their seats while the NFL is locked out? Depends which team you ask. The Patriots say yes. So do 30 other teams. All are willing to repay fans, with interest, in the event that the 2011 season does not happen. (Credit Sports Illustrated’s Jim Trotter for pointing this out. The intrepid Trotter organized a review of all 32 teams' season-ticket policies.)

Only one team is willing to wait and have fans pay them once a 2011 season is assured. You can probably guess from the headline that that team is the New York Giants. John Mara broke this news himself to Mike Francesa of WFAN radio.

The Mara and Tisch families are well-respected around the league and in the New York/New Jersey community because of business practices like these.

For what it's worth, the Panthers, owned by powerful executive committee member Jerry Richardson, are willing to accept only a 10 percent payment until the lockout is lifted.

Giants throw their fans a bone during lockout

As a life-long football fan, this I Pledge: 

 

FOR EVERY GAME THE NFL CANCELS, I WILL BOYCOTT ONE MORE. 

IF THE ENTIRE 2011 SEASON IS LOST —— I WILL ADDITIONALLY SIT OUT ALL OF 2012.

 

I urge all fans to join me. Cut and paste this fan pledge into all future football related posts.

This Dallas fan says Giants are doing the right thing.

Pity the other teams can't do it as well, but squeezing the last dime via sharp practices is by no means a novel idea-fans of Knicks and Rangers know what I'm getting at for certain. Then, there's the matter of PSLs and how they came to be-a clever way of making fans pay twice over for the same service.
