Thanks, now I'll get all the charger home games this year.
nice, get to see the meaningless Bills games at the end of the season
This is why the Chargers will miss the playoffs
Sucks for those in Jacksonville and Orlando. Now they have to actually watch the Jags.
I thought they sold out every game?
The Federal Communications Commission voted 5-0 to eliminate its sports blackout rules Tuesday, but the NFL said that it doesn't plan to change the way its broadcasts are handled.
"NFL teams have made significant efforts in recent years to minimize blackouts," the NFL responded in a statement Tuesday. "The NFL is the only sports league that televises every one of its games on free, over-the-air television. The FCC's decision will not change that commitment for the foreseeable future."
The FCC vote eliminated rules that were implemented in 1975 to ensure that sports broadcasts would not hurt local ticket sales.
They will be fined if they don't abide....they are going to acquiess
As long as they have some chance to make the playoffs they are fine, sometimes late season games aren't shown because of the blackout.
We had 2 games blacked out late last year and were very much in the playoff hunt....That's why the chargers will be moving out of here soon enough
In a warm climate like that, they should be moved, no excuse for that.
Since the hometown stadiums are built with taxpayer dollars, this finally makes sense
They can still black the games out. If you're a real fan get season tickets. If you can't afford season tickets get a better fucking job.
I'd rather go visit the Monkey House at The Bronx Zoo than to ever go to another NFL game. Fucking beer swilling nacho eating fucking animals. Thank you.
Is this actually an issue anymore? Who doesnt sell out in the NFL ever?
Pre cursor to moving a team to LA.
Oh god sorry...i really didnt know.
