Finally, the voice of reason may become fan friendly.
I wonder how many Oiler home games we missed because of that stupid rule?
A pile of 'em. That's why the Cowboy games are what we were watching then!
I had no idea that was an FCC rule, I figured it was just an NFL rule. Why couldn't the NFL just make it a league rule if this one is removed from FCC regulations? (assuming they want to keep it)
This is a common misconception.
The black out rules were established by the NFL.......NOT through governmental regulation. The Congress stepped in at one point just to try to make the original rules half-way palatable.
Ah, OK thanks. Still seems very convoluted to me. I don't understand how it helps any of the teams anyways.
