TV viewers in the Bay Area won’t be able to watch Sunday’s Dolphins-Raiders game.
The game didn’t sell out and will be blacked out locally, the Raiders confirmed today.
As a PFT reader pointed out, tickets to the game can be purchased at StubHub for as low as $35.
The Raiders did manage to sell out their most recent home game, against the Chiefs on November 7, but before that they had 11 in a row blacked out. So now it’s 12 blackouts in 13 games for Oakland.
After Sunday against the Dolphins, the Raiders have two more home games this season: December 19 against the Broncos and December 26 against the Colts. If the Raiders manage to stay in playoff contention deep into December there’s a chance that those games could sell out, but it seems more likely that those two games will be blacked out as well, and the Chiefs game will go down as the team’s only sellout of 2010.
