This Saturday on SNY is Rutgers vs South Florida at noon. I live 30 miles from the Rutgers campus so there is no way in hell this game should be blacked out.

Ansky, know anyone that has cable in the area? Ask them if they are getting the game on SNY. What seems to be missed in this whole thread is people are being blacked out on there local RSN. It's just like putting SNY or YES on in the NY/NJ area and a Yankee or Met game is blacked out. Shouldn't happen...period.

Actually, several cases where it could happen have already been posted. You can indeed be blacked out of a game on your local RSN. I won't repost the half dozen reasons why this can happen.

In this case, assuming SNY isn't just blowing smoke, it appears to be a zip code mistake (again, we don't know who made the mistake). But there are indeed many cases where you might be blacked out on your local RSN.

+1 especially since the game was bought nationally by ESPN

That's what I don't get. Did ESPN "buy" the game before or after SNY decided to carry it? I mean, why would SNY even bother to pay for carrying a game if they knew the majority of their customers couldn't watch it anyway?

If that's the case then it makes even less sense that SNY carried a game with two out of market teams that nobody is going to watch since they need Gameplan.
