    Facebook Group: Stay Out For the Lockout - Boycott 5 minutes of game this week!

    http://www.facebook.com/groups/141827859295775/

    We need to stand up to the NFL Owners and make a statement! Signing a petition won't help and neither will ranting and raving help it.The NFL Owners will not do a thing until they start getting hit in their wallets!

    Therefore, for all Week Four games, everyone needs to stay out of the stadium for the first five minutes of the game!

    Yes, it will be hard. Yes, the players will not get the support at opening kickoff. However, they will understand and they want the regular referees back just as much as we do, if not more!

    How will this work? It's simple! Tailgate a little longer. Do not go into the stadium until the 10 minute mark in the first quarter.

    Stadiums across the nation will be empty at kickoff. It will create a huge buzz on television and on the radio. It will get people talking and NFL Owners will take action!

    Think about this. The NFL Owners will lose hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions! Sponsors who advertise before the game will not be happy and some will demand a refund! NFL Owners who do special events for pre-game will lose money because no one will be there to see it!

    Concessions are most active before the game begins! If no one is in the stadium, the concessions will lose money! If you say that people will just buy the food when they get in - you are wrong! If more people tailgate longer, they will have more food and drinks outside the stadium. Therefore, there would be no need to eat and drink when you get in!

    We need everyone on board. If we do this the right way, the NFL Owners will be hit in their wallets - and that's the only way that they will seriously negotiate with the locked out referees!

    how will missing 5 mins of a game affect the wallets of the owners?

    do we forget how bad the regular refs were too?

    If you think anyone would purposely miss the first 10 minutes of a football game that he/she paid 60+ dollars a ticket for, you, sir, are crazy.

    What a ****ing joke.

    NFL is in the right here.

    Those officials are straight up dumb if they think they deserve a pension—THAT THEY DON'T HAVE TO PUT IN TO— for part-time work, then they are out of their ****ing minds. Those clowns are strong arming the NFL and it's ridiculous.

    What kind of company gives even FULL-TIME employees a pension these days?

    A pension that THEY DON'T HAVE TO PUT IN TO?! This is ABSURD at best.

    Exactly.

    LOL @ This thread. OP wants to boycott an entire FIVE minutes of a football game to "send a message."

    What message is the OP sending other than, "We can't live without football."

    I understand your argument, but it is flawed. The NFL isn't the real world. Hochman made a great argument on The Ticket this morning. If you buy a hotdog at a hotdog stand it is $2. As soon as you walk in that stadium, a hotdog is $8. If you buy soda in a restaurant it is $2.50 with unlimited refills. If you buy a soda in the stadium, it is $6. The rules are different in the NFL. A t-shirt costs $40. Parking is $30. You can't compare what businesses are doing in the real world to what the NFL is doing. It is just different.

    Agree.....the regular refs blow too. The real refs are asking for too much, the nfl is in the right here. That's not to say that there hasn't been say bad calls by the replacements.
