For an opener that is strange. First game of the year all the teams thinks they have chanceDCSholtis said:
Because in most cities the local TV station or other business will buy up the remaining seats in order to avoid the blackout.MN Sportsfan said:
Where is this happening? I only know of a few teams that don't sell out most games. The Raiders are blocked out most of the time and if there's a market with more ability to do this and would have more benefit I'd like to know.Ken S said:

Al Davis and the Oakland Mercinaries had their chance. The NFL considers the Chargers L.A.'s home team. Therefore any blackout would cut off L.A. and San Diego.MN Sportsfan said:I know they're having trouble getting a stadium and they might be the best bet for L.A. Although I wonder if Al Davis will try to block it? He wants rights to the Los Angeles market.
the giants as of last week had every game sold out & 110,000 on the waiting list.MN Sportsfan said:
The raiders were blacked out most of the time because of a stupid PSL ticket policy. Which is paying for the rights to pay for a ticket. Ever since they got rid of that they have sold out most of there games even with the worst record in the NFL.usmcbob55 said:Where is this happening?

The new Fox 5 San Diego has guaranteed the purchase of enough tickets to lift the television blackout on Sunday's game between the Chargers and the Carolina Panthers. Kickoff is 1:15 pm. The game will be shown live on Fox 5, the new Fox network affiliate in San Diego that just hit the airwaves on August 1.
is the MNF game between the Broncos/Raiders sold out?DCSholtis said:Blackout lifted due to the "new" Fox 5
Raider fans in in Oakland are rejoicing. Blackout lifted without an extension. Take that Charger fans. Being in Ohio, NFL ST is a godsend......From Al....ARKDTVfan said:is the MNF game between the Broncos/Raiders sold out?
For the Raiders fans' sake I hope it's blacked out there
gonna be ugly for you guys
KSWB, Channel 69 is the Fox affiliate but San Diego is one of those unique places where stations like to push their cable channel assignment more then there OTA assignment thus Fox 5 or NBC 7-39DCSholtis said:Blackout lifted due to the "new" Fox 5
