The wins may not be coming like the Detroit Lions and fans would like but that isn’t leading to an empty stadium. The Lions announced yesterday that they had sold the tickets required to lift any threat of a blackout. The Lions have now sold out six of seven home games on the year.
The news came on the same day that fans in Buffalo were told that they would not be able to watch their team on local television for the third time this season. The Jacksonville Jaguars were about 1,700 tickets short by Thursday’s deadline but were granted an extension by the league.
Sam Rosen and Tim Ryan will be on the call once again. Ryan vehemently opposed the personal foul penalty called when Ndamukong Suh pushed Jay Cutler to the ground so it will be interesting to see if he has anything to add in light of the $15,000 fine.
