NFL Lockout to Devastate the Chicken Wing Industry

Won't someone think of the chicken? An extended NFL lockout would be bad for football lovers, but it'd be absolutely devastating to the chicken wing industry:

"It would kill wings, it would be terrible on wings," Joe Sanderson said at the Reuters Global Food and Agriculture Summit on Monday.

Chicken wings are popular fare at sports bars, especially on fall and winter Sundays when the National Football League has most of its games.

After weeks of deliberations NFL team owners and players have not reached agreements on a number of labor issues, including pay and profit sharing. A federal court will hear an antitrust suit filed by NFL players on April 6.

Wholesale chicken wing prices generally run up in the weeks ahead of the league's Super Bowl each February. This year, however, prices have been pressured by too many chickens on the lots.

Gee, imagine what would happen to the barbequed wing industry if people started eating healthier. Don't stop eating crappy foods people or the crappy food industries will fold up.
