Bengals Close To Selling Out; Will Ask For Extension If Needed

With the Reds in the NLDS, playing the third game in the series in Cincinnati on Sunday, there's heavy speculation that the Cincinnati Bengals will be unable to sellout against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; especially after losing to the Cleveland Browns last week. On one hand, it makes sense that with the local economy struggling, that it would be realistic to assume that fans would prefer the Reds over the Bengals this weekend.

However, the team's ticket manager Andrew Browns says that the team is close to selling out.

"We're close," he said. "We're close enough that we feel we could ask for an extension...It's going to go down to the wire (Thursday at 1 p.m.).

The Thursday deadline is needed so that Cincinnati's game can be viewed within the local viewing area (aka, 75-mile radius from the stadium). The Bengals will be able to request an extension through the NFL, only if it appears likely that they'll be able to sellout by Friday at 1 p.m. -- or 48 hours before kickoff.
