In another indication that the lockout could soon be over, several teams have sent out letters telling their employees to return to work on Monday.
The New Jersey Nets ticket sales office, idle for most of the fall, is holding a series of hastily called meetings today under the theme “Be Ready.” One staffer tells us that a department-wide email has been circulated, instructing employees that “it’s time to get back to work.” The short-staffed 76ers’ team office has been told that Monday will be “all hands on deck,” as per orders from the league.
To me the key is the use of the word "will" when talking about returning to work monday, not could or if. Don't need ticket office people if there are no games.
Come on, get it done.
