SportsFans​.org's Statement on NFL Lockout

Sports Fans Coalition Executive Director Brian Frederick today issued the following statement:

"Sports fans never start these fights and we are never allowed to help resolve them, but yet, we are the ones who lose today. Our generous investment in growing the game continues to be taken for granted. NFL owners and players have had two years to figure out how to split up $9 billion, but obviously can't do it themselves. It's now up to us to hold them accountable - and we will do so in the coming weeks."

Sports Fans Coalition is a nonprofit established in 2009 that is fighting to give fans a voice on issues like media blackouts, high ticket prices, stadium construction and college football playoffs. In January, they launched Save Next Season, a campaign featuring a petition signed by thousands of fans calling on the NFL and NFLPA to guarantee there will be a 2011 season. In February, they sent a letter to Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith asking that fans have representation in the negotiating sessions.
