Despite Adoption Of NFL's New 85% Rule, Bucs' Season-Opener To Be Blacked Out
Published September 7, 2012
JETS NOT BLACKED OUT: ESPN N.Y.'s Rich Cimini reported the Jets have yet to sell out MetLife Stadium "in the traditional sense" for their game Sunday against the Bills, but fans will "still see the game on local TV." Jets Owner Woody Johnson said, "We won't be blacked out. Whether we've sold every seat, I don't know." Cimini noted the Jets will "satisfy the sellout rule for this game because they've sold the required number of tickets -- an amount predetermined by the team, per league rules" (ESPNNY.com, 9/6).
