Can someone clarify for me the blackout rules? Here in Cincinnati the Bengals did not sell out, so my understanding is that a "75 mile radius" is blacked out. Apparently that includes Cincinnati, Dayton, and Lexington, KY, but somehow doesn't include Louisville, KY, which is showing the Bengals/Bills game.


The part I am not clear about is that the Cincinnati CBS affiliate cannot show another game in that time slot, but the other blacked out affiliates in Lexington and Dayton can?? I guess I find that strange.

Thats because Cinci is the "Primary Market" while the other cities you listed are "Secondary Markets", and can therefore play another game.


Both Louisville and Lexington appear to be more than 75 miles from Cincinnati. Lexington may be opting to televise the Pittsburgh game. Cincinnati is at home so if they are indeed a secondary market for Cinci (I'm actually not sure) they are not required to play that game.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFL_on_television The complicated NFL blackout polices are about 1/3 of the way down.

That's what I make of it too, but I just don't see anything that actually says that. Might have missed something though.


From Wikipedia:
Quote:
The NFL defines an area to be "local" if it is within a 75-mile radius of the stadium. Therefore, a blackout affects any market (affiliate station) whose terrestrial broadcast signal, under normal conditions, penetrates into the 75-mile radius.

Based on what is happening, I don't think this is correct. 75 mile radius from Paul Brown Stadium would be just outside of Louisville, but would reach to Lexington. So it seems the real "local" test is whether the TV stations transmit tower is within that 75 mile radius (in this case, Lexington is... barely, and Louisville is not... barely). Both Lexington and Louisville stations' signals would easily penetrate the 75 mile radius mentioned in the Wikipedia article.
