THE SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY'S BLACKOUT MONITOR
Published September 22, 1995
The following NFL games failed to sellout for this weekend and will be blacked out in their home markets: GAME LOCAL TIME NETWORK Washington at Tampa Bay (1) 1:00 Fox New York Jets at Atlanta (2) 4:00 NBC Kansas City at Cleveland (2) 4:00 NBC Houston at Cincinnati (2) 4:00 NBC San Francisco at Detroit (2) 9:00 ABC NOTE: Detroit still had around 10,000 tickets remaining as of 5pm yesterday. The NFL's blackout rule goes into effect 72 hours prior to kickoff, so the Lions Monday night game cannot be officially blacked out until tonight at 9:00pm EDT. The number in parentheses indicates the number of blackouts each home team has had this season (THE DAILY). The Bills are suing several bars in the Buffalo area for violating last week's blackout (WASHINGTON POST, 9/22).
