NFL Lockout: Indianapolis Hoping for Quick End to Keep Super Bowl
If The Season Is Lost, Indianapolis Stands To Lose The Super Bowl
One casualty of a lost season would be the City of Indianapolis. With no season, there would be no Super Bowl, and Indianapolis was set to host the big game this season.
Having spent a lot of time in Indianapolis, this is terrible. It's a great city, and if you have not had the pleasure of dinner and beer at The Ram a few blocks from Lucas Oil Stadium, you are missing out.
If the season is lost, it already is being speculated the league would make it up to Indianapolis by putting the Super Bowl there in 2015.
From The Indianapolis Star:
"I do feel strongly that we made a commitment to the city of Indianapolis,'' Goodell responded when asked if the city might lose its Super Bowl if the labor situation forced cancellation of the 2011 season. "We look forward to being there. We look forward to playing in Indianapolis and we'll stand behind that commitment.''
The ramifications of a long lockout are huge, and not just to Indianapolis. Lost revenue from empty stadiums and Sports Bars will affect the economy in several ways.
With the lockout in the hands of attorneys and judges, the prospects for a 2011 season look pretty grim at this point.
The legal system moves at its own pace, and it is the pace of maximum payment to the lawyers. The longer this drags on, the more money they make.
