Kill The Blackout

Why didn’t I think of this line of reasoning?  The National Football League currently has a policy of blocking the local broadcast of their games if the stadium is not sold out.  The NFL also has a well established practice, dare I say policy, of looking to the taxpayer to fund new stadiums in which to play their games.  It would seem that a league that is able to exist through the largess of public cash, should be able to be viewed by that very same public.

Now a group of fans is asking the Federal Communications Commission to repeal the blackout rule.  I hope they succeed, but the NFL has reportedly spent over a million-dollars lobbying.  We all know he who provides the cash wins.
