The Dolphins host the Raiders on Sunday, riding a 3-1 tidal wave that nearly could have been a four-game winning streak.
Folks in South Florida remain unimpressed.
Once again, the Dolphins have come up with a plan for buying up the unsold non-premium seats, which will allow the game to be televised locally. This time, the team and the local CBS affiliate have financed the purchase of the remain tickets, which by league rules can be bought at 34 cents on the dollar.
The tickets will be given to the team’s season-ticket and premium members. (Reached for comment, the season-ticket and premium members said, “Hooray?”)
Fortunately for the Dolphins, such devices won’t be necessary for the two remaining homes games of the season. The upcoming game against the Eagles is sold out, and the finale against the Jets is close to being sold out.
