    Yeah this is ridiculous.

    You had black outs.

    No we didn't.

    Well....only because you tarped more seats.

    No, they didn't here's proof.

    Well thats false there were blackouts.

    No there weren't! Nor in 2010! Here's proof!

    Well....only because sponsors bought up tickets!!

    Who cares?! The statement was the games were blacked out. They weren't. They have not had a blackout since the sold out the final home game of the 2009 season. That's it. Period.

    For the record, Tampa sold out 2 games last teas not 3. The other televised "home" game was when they played in London.

    I've long felt like they should go by zip code and if your zip is verified to be over 75 miles from the stadium and you are a ST sub you aren't blacked out of those games. But the NFL doesn't share my feelings.

    With no proof that holding a game off tv increases its chances of selling out, they should blackout nothing. In fact, local broadcast of games ha shown an increase in ticket sales as the game is one big ad for the team.

    I have no sympathy for other victims of blackouts when the Indy 500 has been blacked out in central Indiana for decades no matter the attendance.

    I didn`t realize the Indy 500 was still blacked out in Indy. I thought that stuff ended years ago.

    Indy, while a fun town to visit can be a bit provincial.

    The Colts full regular season will be sold out. There will be no blackouts. There were less than 2,000 tickets available per game just a couple months ago.

    Assuming the Chargers sell out (and teams that get deadline extensions almost always do sell out), there will be no blackouts in week 2.

    However, there will still be a single game Sunday afternoon that won't be shown on Gamemix, as there are nine 1:00 games. The bumped game will most likely be KC@BUF, CLE@CIN, or HOU@JAX.

    I'd bet KC/BUF. There's no previous playoff team in that group. Houston and Cincinnati both made it last season and I'd think be considered on the rise.
