Word to 2001... :smh:
Quote:[hr][/hr]The Falcons won't be on Atlanta television Sunday.

The game against the San Francisco 49ers will be blacked out locally because the Falcons failed to sell out the Georgia Dome 72 hours before kickoff, as required by NFL television rules.

This marks the first time since Arthur Blank bought the team in 2002 that a Falcons home game has failed to sell out.[hr][/hr]

Up here in Minnesota the local TV stations bye the remaining tickets to avoid Vikings blackouts, I believe they've had to do that three times already this year SMH

I never heard of these rules.

Every Packers home game since 1960 has been sold out and there is a waiting list of 80,000 people for season tickets.

What the hell else is there to do in Green Bay? Serious question.

The Falcons have claimed to have a waiting list of over 30,000. Anyone who has lived in Atlanta for more than a week knew that was a load of @#%$...

I think I'll go catch American Gangster early Sunday before that Pats/Colts game.

Welcome to being a Raider fan...I don't think any team has had as many blackouts as they have.

i remember them blacking out dolphin playoff games. i don't know why they do it, it's stupid. if people aren't going to the games, then they might watch it on tv. but now people have no choice.
