The NFL Blackout Rule, Beating Detroit While It's Down

Friday, October 30, 2009

The below image is from the wonderful the506.com, who each week puts together a map of the US and their corresponding NFL broadcasts. As you can see in the image below Detroit fans are getting punched in the nuts. The Lions did not sell out their game, and why would they with the Lions and Rams combining for 1 win, thus the Lions game is blacked out in the local market. What sucks the most is that not only do they not get to watch the Lions game, who cares really, but they don't get to watch any game on FOX, instead they are just stuck with the Cleveland vs. Chicago game, wooo. Can't we just be nice to Detroit and let them watch the Eagles Giants game? I think they have been through enough.

Anytime I am connected to wireless internet it periodically stops functioning as if I am no longer connected. However, the computer shows that it is still connected, and people around me are having no problems at all. This usually happens four or five times in a two hour period. I try reconnecting, but it only lasts maybe ten minutes. My computer is regularly scanned for viruses. [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]
