Still 900 tickets left to be sold, there has been virtually no sales in the past week.

Looks like J-Rich's chickens are coming home to roost.

The TV station will swoop in buy them up and give to charitable causes just to be able to air it.

I do realize that. Still, they haven't had to do that in ages.

If we continue to suck, look for the San Francisco and/or the Arizona games later in the season to also face potential blackouts.

Sorry I'm kind of an idiot when it comes to these kind of things but um is 900 a lot left over? Do Panthers game generally sell out? Like I said I'm a huge Panthers fan but don't really have the money to go to games.

This makes you happy?

I honestly can't remember the last time a game was blacked out. I know it happened in '95, but I can't remember a time it didn't air locally since they went to Ericsson/Bank of America. Even the 1-15 season was technically sold out.

I see no humor in this. There are plenty of us that can't afford to go to the game that faces not being able to see the game if the TV stations don't come in and buy the tickets.

What? Potential blackouts? Not overall. That means the team sucks and I don't like that. I DO like the fact that Richardson's cost-cutting measures are what made the team so crappy...and that's what's going to cost him even more money with low ticket sales.

I think they can pay 30 cents on a dollar for each ticket and avoid the blackout

Soooo like I just said what's the bottom line with this blackout talk? Is the game not going to be on Fox? Cause if that's the case I'm going to flip a poo.

I hate this...but this is what happens when you put poo on the field and are proud of it. Just wait until the team is out of contention.

I think it's more the economy than this team being average. Now, if we do what we did in NY this Sunday...then it'll start to get ugly. I've been to every game the past six years and I've yet to ever see the stadium empty. I can't imagine what it was like during the 1-15 season. I bet you could yell to someone across the other side of the stadium and be heard.

Fox or the team will buy up the tickets if it's just 900. They did it in 2001 when there were thousands of available tickets. Still...very embarrassing and there will be more to buy up later in the season potentially. Many more.
