better idea I saw posted:
We all want to do something about this lockout. The problem: we are addicts and can’t give up our football.
IDEA: Go to the game, since we are addicts, but do something to show your displeasure. What if everyone at the game, the whole stadium, stood up and together they all turned their backs to the field, for just one play (the opening kickoff)?????
It would make a very powerful statement.
You likely wouldn’t miss anything either, since there’s an 80% chance that the kicker kicks it through the endzone anyway.
The media would be asking Goodell’s opinion on the “fan protest”. It would also spread to every NFL stadium in a week. It would be a total embarrassment to the league but would not deprive any of us addicts of our fix.
I don’t know what sort of protest from home would be as effective, but I would think that the owners (and Goodell) would not be happy with the on-TV display of fans turning their backs on the field in a united, symbolic protest, knowing that most of those protesters are season ticket holders.
