CHICAGO (CBS) The NFL is almost 12 weeks into the lockout of its players. And despite reports of decreased fan interest, an ugly legal battle and a possibility of canceled games, it appears as if the league is still selling season tickets.

According to Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal, the NFL is “ahead of last years pace for season ticket sales despite the lockout while league considers changes to blackout policy.”

Will Brinson, of, says that one reason for the increased ticket sales could be that the league started selling season tickets sooner, as well as setting an earlier cutoff date for season ticket renewals.
