[QUOTE]The NFL Players Association warned in letters it sent to Mayor Bloomberg, Gov.-elect Cuomo and Gov. Paterson Monday that New York could lose more than $160 million in jobs and revenue if the league's owners cancel the 2011 season. The union also asked the elected officials to pressure Giants owner John Mara and Jets counterpart Woody Johnson to engage in good-faith negotiations with the NFLPA over the collective-bargaining agreement that expires in 100 days.
NFLPA president Kevin Mawae said the players are happy with the current agreement, but that owners are taking steps to cancel the 2011 season. A lockout would be a huge hit on the region's economy, Mawae said.
