Raiders could break 11-game blackout streak

The Oakland Raiders have failed to sell out 11 straight regular-season games.

That streak could be coming to an end this weekend, with the Chiefs coming to town and the Raiders pushing seats on a two-for-one basis.

Jerry McDonald writes that tickets apparently are going fast.

Whether they go fast enough to sell out the Oakland Coliseum remains to be seen.

With the Lions selling out Ford Field and the Buccaneers and Chargers not playing at home, there’s a chance that all NFL games played in the U.S.A. will be sold out.

Regarding a game that will be played in Canada, stay tuned.

    Pretty bad when you have to give away half the seats in order to claim a sell-out.

    Yup. Almost as bad as having the city where you play guarantee sell-outs for almost ten years, so they are stuck buying them and then giving them to school kids as incentive to do well on pop quizzes. (and no, I’m not talking about Pittsburgh)

    Sellouts are a thing of the past, and way over rated now. There is something called Directv Sunday Ticket. There is something called The Superfan package. EVERY game and EVERY TEAM is available, even your local team, even if its blacked out locally! AND you can watch from either your 60″ flat screen, And/Or 30″ PC Monitor, And/Or your Smartphone. Its a no brainer! SELLOUTS/BLACKOUTS ARE OVER RATED AND A THING OF THE PAST!!!!

    Well I rather be in a stadium with 2000 Real RaIDER Fans then places like Giellete staDium where 99% of the stadium is all bandwagon, or rich fans who know nothing about football.
    Patriots Fans..hahahah

    tom bradys back up, the center, guard, and NONE of them could tell us what a tuck rule is….

    They will be the L.A Raiders again soon… the way they’ve been playing, you’d figure the fans would be flocking to the ticket booth.

    The Buy one get one is only in a few sections not the whole stadium as you make it sound. But if it fills it up i’m all for it! The last home game was rocking in Oakland so I can’t wait to smoke the Chiefs

    For the life of me I will never understand why people like yourself are so concerned about the millionaire getting his money. His money is guaranteed. It’s called TV contracts. As for the RAIDERS giving away tickets, GOOD. As long as the stadium is full that is the only thing that matters, not how much Al Davis is making in ticket sales.

    I was a season ticket holder bet. 2001-2004 when I was in the bay. There was nothing like Sundays in Oakland in the fall. The tailgates were great and the RAIDERS were winning back then. Went to 2 AFC championship games. For a RAIDERS fan, it was heaven on earth.
