Bengals And Browns Declared A Blackout For Local Television

One would think that after a 6-4 start, including consecutive losses that came within a short Andy Dalton throw to tie the game, that the team would be able to sellout games by now. Not so. According to Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer, Sunday's game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns has declared a blackout for local television -- markets within a 75-mile radius of Paul Brown Stadium. It's the fourth home game that hasn't sold out this season, following the San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts.

Many reasons exist for the team struggling to sellout, including a fanbase that's either struggling to make ends meet with ticket prices that truly gorge into someone's budget who might otherwise be preparing for the Christmas season. Or an obsessive Mike Brown boycott that will last far after his departure as the team's president and nothing, not even a playoff team could change that.

My friend in Texas, you'll be hearing from me shortly.
