While players and owners continue to negotiate new agreements, it’s becoming more and more likely the 2011 NFL season really may find itself locked out. In advance of this, teams are trying to navigate the waters between planning the next season ticket ventures and avoiding too many contracts. The Redskins announced today, just as other teams around the league, that there will be no ticket price increase next season, and that refunds will be provided in the event of a lockout. From the release:

“We remain hopeful that an agreement can be successfully negotiated between the League and the Players Association,” said Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder. “If that does not occur, all Washington Redskins season ticket holders will be offered full refunds for any games that are missed.”

I love that the NFL – and Snyder, especially – do seem to be forced to go on the record to clarify that final point. “In the event of no games, we will give you your money back. No crossies. No, seriously, stop laughing.”
