    I really have an issue with buying the NFL sunday ticket to watch all the games and then they decide to blackout the game. Its a preseason game and they blackout the game!!!! Why?????? Is the President, congress, senate and Cuba running the show for them?

    A bunch of us go to a bar who has the NFL package. They say the game is coming on. We all decided to stay to buy lots of beer and food. Then the channel says blacked out. We all walked out. Now the bar and waitress just lost alot of money over a preseason game. Way to kill the economy NFL!!!! You greedy s just got off strike and demanded more money from the fans. How much more greed do you want? You lost some fans tonight.

    I'm sticking only to college football. I've had enough with NFL, MLB, NBA and even our overprice hockey team. Yeah, tickets are $10 this year for nose bleeds.
