I caught up with numerous NFL fans today at Wrigley Field Bar and Grill to discuss their reactions to the owners agreement.
No matter the team
"Colts and Bears"
"San Francisco 49ers fan"
Football brings us together. Many fans eating lunch at Wrigley Field have an opion.
"It just seems kind of greedy to me"
"Acting like a bunch of brats. It's about money, it comes down to dollar bills".
"If you have 9 Billion dollars to split, then why am I paying so much for tickets?"
"Players are being greedy, owner are for the profit, that's why they take the risk"- Wife
"I disagree"- husband
"We have a difference of opinion"- wife
Many are anxious for the NFL to return
"I'm excited. It looks like we're going to have football."
"I just wish it would end, it's getting kind of old"
Others are personally relieved.
"Football saves our business in winter. It's huge for our business. We triple ourselves on a Sunday"
Dan and Beth White are not the only one's affected.
"It affects people that work at the stadium, ticket tackers, ushers, vendors, it effects everybody. The sooner they come to an agreement, the better for everybody"
"I think people would be really upset if they didn't have football"
Dan White did say that because of their business slowing down in the summer, they really rely on football season. Hopefully we will know soon that the players have reach an agreement.
