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.

    The NO game should be a good contest, even though it’s preseason. Our problem is that we seem to tank the game when we are competing against terrible teams that we should be thrashing. We always seem to find a way to play down to their level of competence. That really needs to change Hue.

    the team needs our support. People blog here with passion
    show that passion by dishin out doe for a ticket!!!

    That’s what I do
    ==============================================
    Agreed! Its interesting that Raider fans travel real well. I’ve been to several road games and there are plenty of Raider fans in the seats…..

    Kolb just connected to LFITZ on a 80 yard bomb against SD’s 1′s…

  • JB

    We may have learned something about DHB. We have been using him wrong. Sending him on a 9 route or long post is NOT his forte. He seems to be much better if we hit him quickly and let him run away from defenders. Design plays for his strengths and maybe he’ll start showing up. Use Ford & D-WOW for the long hit plays. That’s their strengths. D-WOW is going to be great no matter where he’s hit. Kid is amazing. Should be ROY is he continues his progress & gets played.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Thec,

    Yup….just saw it too. I hope JC lets the Raider receivers run to the ball like Kolb did with Fitz.

    JC gotta start hitting those passes…too many underthrows

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    JB,

    Regardless….its time for DHB to man up and catch the ball no matter where its thrown to him…whether quick slants or deep patterns

  • Plunketthead

    Patrick Peterson just picked Rivers for 6

    Rivers throws a pic 6 to patterson…

    +++++++

    Yep…I beleive its a timing thing as he does have the arm…

  • JB

    I think Soup’s long under-throws have more to do with not wanting an INT as opposed to lack of arm strength. He just needs to forget about his INT record and pull the trigger and trust his receivers will get there in time.

  • Thec07

    +++++++++

    Yep…I think he will be fine…

  • Thec07

    SD chargers are 1 dimensional…They dont have a run game…

  • Plunketthead

    The discharge 8 = 8 this year
    Candy Galore will dump Chargerdown for sure

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNoi_wwzbtQ Zymurge

    I thought that DHB made two solid catches on the catchable balls thrown his way last week. The first was actually a great peek into what he can do with his speed on that deep out. JC lead him to the sideline and let him beat tight double coverage by pulling up and using his body to screen.

    I know the knock on him is his hands. But he is looking like he’s learning the true skills of the route running and getting open other than by just running by people. If he catches more than he drops, he’s going to start changing people’s opinions.

    Listen to me Al, lock Shaughnessy up NOW!! Fo not mess this up Raiders! Matt is the next bigtime D lineman home grown in Oakland! He is the future of our D line. Along with Houston!
    ====================================================
    yup.

    Al has to start getting ahead of the curve with these young players and all players in general.

    Can’t keep coming down to franchise tags, RFAs.

    Try to keep your guys off the open market

    ::::::::::

    Well said SNB.

    What a Great shrewd move by Al Davis to trade for Richard Seymour. Big Rich is doing a heck of a job tutoring these young men we have drafted.

  • Thec07

    Arz going in on SD chargers 1′s…Even those its preseason i love it when they lose…

  • JB

    SNB

    I agree DHB just needs to catch everything that’s thrown to him. The 2 he caught in the AZ game were outstanding. He was tight double covered and fought his way to the ball. He proved he could do it. Now, he needs to do it every time.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    I hear all that…this year is the time. The fan base is almost ready to check out permanently.

    Gotta start winning these games….no more would of, could of, should of.

    The fact the team can’t get more than 30K for a national tv game (even if preseason) is reflective of the need to win now!

  • TheGeneral

    I bet Zach Miller wish he was back the seahawks are terrible ha o well sucks for you

  • JB

    Zach who?

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    I don’t mean to sound impatient…but seriously…a catch here or there will not get it. A run stop here or there will not get it….an occassional deep completion won’t get it.

    This team has to start playing on all cylinders.

    Right now there is only 1 player truly playing to his full capability…DMAC….

    The rest have to just man up….nothing more can be said from the blog, Hue, Al Davis, media etc.

    Got a lot of veteran players that gotta step up.

    Its like when my dad used to say…”Your too old for that now”

    These players aren’t rooks anymore…gotta start earning it!

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    B&uce,

    I hear ya for representin strong.

    this Raider team deserves the 12th man too.

    Fans add energy and help the home team…anyone within 50 miles of Oakland should be making plans to attend at least 2 gms this year.

  • SR Raider

    2 gms? Making plans for 8 games

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    SR,

    I’ll be making at least two games and I am thousands of miles away

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    I believe in this team…still some things that annoy me…run defense…but I think they what it takes to compete this year.

    The Raiders deserve the fans support…

  • SR Raider

    Nice SnB. I was talking about those within 50 miles

  • 8RaiderReign8

    The main things I will be looking at this game are the overall defense, the rb position, and the o-line. If Campbell is out I say throw Pryor out there at the end and see what her can do. That’s why it’s preseason.

  • priesttj

    You know it’s strange but the website is reporting the game will be shown LIVE at 5pm on channel 2 it doesn’t sya it wil be blakced out at all and usually the report that.

    I just can’t imagine a local network not picking up the game it doesn’t make sense their ratings for a Raider game would be more than any Sunday Night movie they can think of.

    They game will be shown locally it’s preseason they can buy these games and show them. Per league rules during regular season it’s different.

    ***********************

    Are you nuts? Putting Pryor out there would be insanity. I should not need to go into detail why.

    The O-line will be the most important. Without them there’s no running or passing game PERIOD. Without them, people sustain injuries, some season ending. The O-line needs to be the right combination of players operating as a single cohesive unit. IMO, Loper, Carlisle & Barnes are NOT what I want to see out there. I guess I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see what HuJack is thinking.

  • 8RaiderReign8

    JB,

    Yeah without the line the long bomb to Ford never happens. The best thing about this is the Saints have top tier talent. Hopefully we won’t play down to their levels like we always do with the 9ers.

    And if the line looks good in the game, why not throw our Pryor and feed him some base plays.

  • 89052RAIDER

    Niners look like garbage and they whooped the raiders.

    I’d like to see if Lito Sheppard hasnt lost a step. We needed another vet CB and we got 1 without dumping money.

  • RaiderKen

    I think it’s a good thing that this game will be blacked out. I mean Brees is gonna tear the secondary a new one. But what the heck it’s only preseason.

    So I was going over your guys schedule. This is how I think things will play out:

    @Broncos W
    @Bills W (you all going to get your hopes up LOL)
    Jets L
    Patriots L
    @ Texans L
    Browns L (oh oh, its panick time y’all)
    Chiefs W
    Broncos W
    @ Chargers L (of course, and this is where your season slides out of control)
    @ Vikings L
    Bears W
    @ Miami L
    @ Packers L
    Lions L (Terrele Pryor’s debut, and it aint pretty)
    @ Chiefs L
    Chargers L (Jason Campbell’s last game as a Raider)

    It looks like the Raiders go 5-11 and slip back into suckdom. Chargers will be back on top again.

    1)Chargers 12-4
    2)Chiefs 9-7
    3)Raiders 5-11
    4)Broncos 4-12
    ******
    Yay! Look at me annoying charger fan in raider blog
