Dolphins announce that Sunday’s game will be televised

The Dolphins surprisingly have won four of their first eight games.  It’s unclear whether their unexpected success has had a significant impact on ticket sales.

Regardless, Sunday’s home game against the Titans will be televised in South Florida.  The Dolphins announced on Wednesday that “they have complied with the NFL requirements to allow Sunday’s game to be broadcast locally.”

The Dolphins opted to take full advantage of the ability to drop their minimum sales threshold to 85 percent of all non-premium tickets.  Given the team’s recent difficulties when it comes to selling tickets, it’s likely that a few — or a lot more than a few — of the tickets were purchased by the Dolphins or one or more of the team’s sponsors at 34 cents on the dollar.

  1. Los Angeles dolphins ? Look Florida doesn’t deserve pro sports they are too old or too busy down there

  2. Mind your own business jonirucit.
    Worry about where you come from first. Florida is fine, in case you don’t know the Heat are the Champions, and we certainly are not too old down here. Worry about the Raiders, because they need help, and the Dolphins beat the crap out of them too.

  3. The rest of the year is gonna be up and down this week the fins will be up because the titans can’t pass but are suppose to be good at running ask Indy and the New York Feet how that worked out

  4. Blacking-out games of local teams, especially teams on the rise or doing better than expected, is silly and counter-productive. The best and most accessible way to generate local interest is being able to show games locally on television. It especially pisses me off when the NFL limits access to games for fans’ whose tax-dollars continually go to the construction of their new stadium. I’m just glad that I follow a team where blackouts don’t happen but I feel for those who are not in my situation.

  5. Your right, the dolfins do suck… But life in florida is better than where u call home… Siberia…

    Even more counter productive because any computer geek can get them free (live) off the internet. Make the home games safe, the facility interesting and family affordable and you’ll put people in the stands.

  7. The deal with the Yankees is they live in a bad section of the country, ice and snow and storms, kind of why when I live in Miami my Yankees friends always came down to stay at my house, now that I live in Virginia they drive down 81 and don’t stop to say hello. With friends like that I could do without. Miami is a great place to play football, what they need is to win more home games. Bill
