SHARE Bears will offer full refund for games missed

Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand sent a letter to season ticket holders, lamenting the league’s current situation and informing them that they would get a refund, with interest, for any games missed.

I’m told the Bears will also refund ticket holders for any games missed but that they will not provide interest.

Is it a big deal?

Doesn’t sound like it.

The interest paid is expected to be minimal, likely from the time the NFL announces cancellations and the refunds are delivered. Say what you want about the U.S. Postal Service, but I’m pretty certain that won’t take very long, probably a couple weeks, at most.

In the letter, Lewand wrote: “We are sorry the CBA expiration has created some uncertainty during this offseason.

“We understand and respect that what is most important to you and to all of our fans is that we play football in 2011.”
