Saints-Raiders blacked out locally

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, August 27th, 2011 at 3:25 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Not sure where it began, but there seemed to be a lot of people who were under the impression the Saints-Raiders game would be televised live in its local market.

That is not the case. Regular-season rules apply to the preseason with regard to blackouts. The Raiders’ paid attendance against Arizona was 25,699 with far fewer than that in the stands. That figure is a rough approximation of their season ticket base, given that preseason games are included.

So the Raiders will be on television everywhere but their home market while getting the national television treatment on NBC with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth.

    Those who don’t go to the game can’t complain about it not being on TV! I’m tired of the excuses. If you are a true Raider fan, go to the game! I commend those that show up from other parts of the state or country once or twice a year.

    I’ve got a feeling that the Raiders performance in the 1st half vs. the Saints will be a “sign” of where they truly stand heading into the season. I just hope it’s close in the 1st half. Brees cannot have a big first half!

    As these are sites of questionable legality, it would be appropriate for me to recommend:

    Nobody pays to see a bad product so we can’t stop the black outs..Who wants to go watch a team get blasted in back to back Sundays by the Jets and Dolphins,side from brown hole nun? Al must sleep through the first quarter of home games.

    how in the hell does a nationally televised game get blacked out?

  • magpul762

    Awww… blacked out again?? Damn, I really hope the team moves to another region, so I can watch some Sunday Night Football. Al, you stink… Raiders, you suck. I’d like to say ‘Raiders, go Home!!’; dOh, you ARE home.
