Bengals just announced that the Bengals-Steelers game at PBS on September 27th has sold out.
I am putting the over/under on number of Terrible Towels at PBS at 35,000.
Sources from the Bengals have told WDR that there is still a chance that the Season Opener against the Broncos could avoid a blackout. And that the Browns and Bears games should sell out due to the interest from visiting fans. The Texans, Ravens, Lions and Chiefs games are far, far away from sellouts.
Comrades - the only way we will see change from the Bengals is if it hits the Brown family right in the pocket. Do not buy seats, deal with the blackouts and change will come. As Doc points out, 10-year lease agreements for luxury boxes end after this season - and this revenue is not shared with the NFL.
While Doc doesn't want to "encourage civil insurrection," WDR certainly does. Until we stop supporting the Bengals financially, nothing will change.
