Bet on the NFL The NFL will offer full refunds to fans with general admission tickets if games are canceled next season because of a lockout. Each team will determine its policies for club seats, suites and payments for personal seat licenses, the league said Tuesday.
Season ticket holders can choose to receive a refund or credits toward future games. Fans with individual game tickets can receive a refund or exchange the tickets for future games, with some restrictions. The current collective bargaining agreement expires in March, raising fears that a lockout may disrupt at least part of the preseason and regular season.
Gore done for season. Frank Gore’s season is over — and what a hit for the San Francisco offense. The 49ers placed their star running back on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday.

Coach Mike Singletary said he wasn’t sure when Gore got hurt.

A customer at the bar told investigators that Britt was among those who assaulted him. Britt denied hitting anyone, though Coach Jeff Fisher benched the receiver for a quarter because of the reports.
