Oakland Raiders' game against Eagles won't be shown on local TV
Please see below regarding the Raiders game being blacked out this weekend.
##########Oakland Tribune staff and wire report
The Oakland Raiders' home game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday will be blacked out locally because the team did not sell out the game in time.
Games need to be sold out 72 hours before kickoff to avoid a blackout in a 75-mile radius. This is the second time in three home games that Oakland has been unable to avoid a blackout.
Oakland's season opener against San Diego on Sept. 14 was sold out and shown on local TV. The Raiders' second home game, against Denver on Sept. 27, was blacked out locally.
The Raiders have had two games blacked out each season since taking over ticket sales from Alameda County before the 2006 season.
In their first 11 seasons back from Los Angeles, the Raiders sold out only 25 of 88 regular-season games in time to avoid a blackout.
Fortunately, Comcast customers have access to NFL RedZone (in HD)
and they can still see their beloved team inside the 20-yard line live on NFL RedZone.
Well, at least the Raider fans can see part of the game on the NFL RedZone which I guess is better than not seeing them at all. I'm not a big fan of the Raiders because they allow this to happen all the time, The 49er's will usually buy up the extra tickets and donate them to the local schools/charities or they will have one of their backers do it for them. Oh well, at least there will be a good reason to watch the RedZone HD this Sunday, if just to see how it looks in HD
