FCC Proposes End To Blackout Rule in the NFL


The blackout rule could be coming to an end! Joy for all San Diego Chargers fans out there. The FCC is proposing an end to the blackout rule around the NFL.

Chargers fans know too much about this rule. We fight to sell out the stadium every week and we are hoping that the games will be televised around the city. We could see all games on television soon.

I know that there are some fans that would rather see the games on the TV. Our stadium is terrible and the TV experience is pretty awesome. It should be interesting to see how this blackout thing goes.

        LOL… I am joking of course. I can’t afford season tickets anyway.

    Good, I always felt like I was being held hostage. Spanos doesn’t even make his money for ticket sales, and whether the games are televised or not, the TV money is still guaranteed. It sounds like the networks are using their puppets… I mean “influence” in Washington to get their moneys worth. At the end of the day Networks only want people to see their ads.

    No “Anti-Raiders” post this week, Ernie? I never get tired of 200+ comments worth of horrible grammar, death threats, gay-bashing, tired Charger jokes, ridiculously meaningless stats, old Superbowl trophy fist-pumping, and lame nicknames! I know Fitzy will be ready to rock with his “Mama Jokes”, and crackhead GIF’s …. Muahahahaha!
