The Detroit Lions failed to sell all their tickets for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, meaning there will be a TV blackout in some local markets.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Not even close enough for an extension. Bummer for Lions fans.

Go Packers!

From nfl.com:

Add the Raiders to the local TV blackout list for this weekend.


Sunday's game vs. the Broncos won't be shown in the Bay Area.
