Season ticket holders are looking to put a full court press on the Knicks and the NBA.

They're signing a six-foot petition demanding an end to the lockout, or else they want their money back.

Business owners near Madison Square Garden say the longer the lockout lasts, the worse it is for their bottom line.

"They understand what they're doing. They understand the game they're playing. We're saying stop playing that game. Get on the courts so people can go back to work," said State Senator Malcolm Smith.

"We want our money back. If you can get a season going, we want our money back. Because that's important—there's hard economic times out there,” said Martin Silver, owner of Georgi Vodka Company.

Fans are calling for a national day of solidarity on December 11. They say if no deal is reached by then, they'll demand season ticket refunds.
