With the NFL lockout hitting the length of months rather than just weeks, football fans and writers everywhere are getting increasingly nervous that the season could be in serious jeopardy.
This means that the articles about the lockout’s economic impact on all 32 NFL cities, including Cleveland, will begin to pop up more and more. It’s hard to put an exact dollar amount on it, but it’s obvious that the city would be affected by a lack of football. Yes, people can spend their money in other places, but that’s no guarantee that that money will be spent in Cleveland. Anytime you remove an entertainment option from a city (especially a city like Cleveland, which can take just about anything right now), there are going to be repercussions.
