Just thought I'd get some blood boiling here this morning. This is a joke, and not something I would typically do but couldn't resist the thought of how pissed I would be if I saw this. I'm sure it will most likely be deleted...but thought I'd see how long it rides.

NOW LAUGH...THEY CAN'T DO THIS TO US THIS WEEK!:fans:

I was going to be pissed for y'all in Austin, so my blood started to reach the boiling point.

The NFL defines "locally" as within a 75-mile radius of the stadium. Therefore, a TV blackout affects any market whose broadcast signal penetrates into the 75-mile radius. Some primary media markets, such as Denver and Phoenix, may cover that entire radius and so the blackout would not affect any other markets.
An exception to the 75-mile rule is the market area for the Green Bay Packers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Bay_Packers), which stretches out to both the Green Bay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Bay,_Wisconsin) and Milwaukee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milwaukee,_Wisconsin) television markets (the team's radio flagship station (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WTMJ-AM) is in Milwaukee, and two Packer home games a year were played at Milwaukee County Stadium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milwaukee_County_Stadium) until 1994). However, blackout rules rarely come into effect for the Packers, due to a four-decade long streak of sellouts and a decades-long season ticket waiting list.
Since Austin is more than 75 miles from Houston, I knew it was a joke.

If Vince Young was on "Cribs" that's what Austin would be watching.
