NFL Lockout Could Hurt Chicken Wing Industry

Stephen Douglas

“It would kill wings, it would be terrible on wings,” Joe Sanderson of Sanderson Farms Inc.

“It would be very bad for chicken wings and I do not know to what extent it would be bad for other products they sell in those watering holes or sports bars. It would not be good, I’d tell you that”

I love chicken wings and can’t stand the thought of that glorious industry being hurt by the selfish players and owners of the NFL. According ot the US Department of Agriculture, wing prices have already “plunged to 95 cents per pound.” Just over a year ago, leading up to Super Bowl XLIV they were $1.74 per pound. It is truly a dark time for the wing.
