Buccaneers Promise Fans No Blackouts, Say All Home Games Will Be Televised Locally
Published September 27, 2013
GETTING THE ALL-CLEAR: In San Diego, Tom Krasovic noted the Chargers have sold enough tickets for Sunday's game against the Cowboys "to lift the blackout" in the local market. The team has sold out both games at Qualcomm Stadium this season after having "half of their eight home games ... blacked out because not enough tickets were sold" in '12 (UTSANDIEGO.com, 9/26). PRO FOOTBALL TALK's Mike Florio noted through four weeks, "all 63 regular-season games will have been televised in the home team’s local market." The league office said that this is "only the third time the NFL has made it through four weeks of the regular-season without a single blackout" (PROFOOTBALLTALK.com, 9/26).
