Indiana Lawmakers Say NFL Work Stoppage Would Have "Devastating Impact" on Economy

Dan Coats and Richard Lugar, along with all nine House members from the state” sent a letter to Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith urging the league to avoid a work stoppage. It would have a “devastating impact” on the state, which will host next year’s Super Bowl.

It can’t be a good sign that the lawmakers are concerned about a game that’s being played 11 months from now, can it?
