The Oakland Raiders face a blackout for this weekends game against the Denver Broncos at the Oakland – Alameda County Coliseum after failing to sell the number of seats as required by NFL rules. Thursday’s deadline of 1pm came and went so local television programing will not be showing the game.
Too bad for the fans who cannot afford to go to the game, or just don’t enjoy the live experience enough to go through the trouble it takes to go to a game in the San Francisco Bay Area because of traffic problems.
It’s an NFL rule that has been debated lately, but it doesn’t look like that policy will change any time soon. On the bright side, tickets are running fairly cheep at $45 and up per ticket at the posting time of this blog, and the weather in Oakland is usually pretty good this time of year, so this may be one of those games worth attending in person. If nothing else, to relax and blow off some steam at the teams.
Oakland Raider Tickets are available for this weekends game against the Denver Broncos and for any of the Oakland Raider games, especially Raider blackout games! NFL Tickets are also available for all the teams for the 2009-10 season.
