I know you had buying the “NFLLockout.com” domain on your “things to do” list, but unfortunately, the NFL Players Association beat you to the punch. But don’t feel bad. You simply didn’t stand a chance. There’s simply no way that you could know if the league will be in lockout mode next season. The NFL Players Association on the other hand, seems to have no doubt that a lockout is looming. And when you’re that confident, you’ll drop $25,000 to purchase said domain.
Perhaps to gain an upper hand, the NFL Players Association just bought the domain name NFLLockout.com. Seller Eric Gargiulo tells Domain Name Wire that he sold the domain name for $25,000 to the union.
That’s not a bad return for Gargiulo, given that he just registered the domain name last September. It’s also the best possible outcome he could have expected; the National Football League could have probably won the domain name in a domain name arbitration case.
Both NFLLockout.net and NFLLockout.org are also registered, but the owners of the domain names is using whois privacy to shield their identies.
Folks, that’s the final step. Prepare for a lockout.
