The open letter on behalf of fans extends the Buffalo Wild Wings “Save Our Season” movement, which already has compiled more than 16,000 petition signatures. During the college basketball tournament in March and April, Buffalo Wild Wings ran its football ads with a tag at the end urging the two sides to come to an agreement. The company’s Fantasy Football Blogger League also was called off the bench back in April and sent into action to rally its passionate audience of fantasy football players around this cause.“The professional football season is obviously important to our business,” Benning said. “However, we know that no matter the outcome of these talks, Buffalo Wild Wings will continue to be the gathering spot for all sports viewing. We’re hopeful that both sides of this dispute will come to an agreement and we will see professional football this fall.” Whether it’s professional or college football, baseball, hockey, basketball, soccer or curling, Buffalo Wild Wings – with dozens of big screens and HDTVs, award-winning wings and signature sauces and seasonings – has become the best place for friends to watch their favorite teams and share in the camaraderie and competition of sporting events.
