Default Steelers Blackouts????

Hey all. Look forward to a big steelers victory tomorrow. However, will the game be shown? I keep hearing about nfl teams getting a tv blackout for lack of sellouts. Is the game tomorrow sold out? Will the steelers face this issue in the future?

Put down the crack pipe - the Steelers have not "faced the issue" of not selling out a home game since the early 1970s

Of course the issue will be faced in "the future" - the dinosaurs went extinct and so will the NFL

Steelers fans save other teams from their own blackouts. If I was the owner of the Bengals, Browns, Bucs, Chargers, Jaguars, Cardinal, etc... I would love it when the Steelers come to town beause it means - NO BLACKOUTS

The game will be shown on NFL NETWORK but also locally on KDKA I believe with Pomp and Edmond Nelson commentating.

The game will also be shown on nbcsports.com tonight as well, for anyone not in the area and without cable.

But yeah, if the game were in Cleveland, there may be a small chance for a blackout....definitely not in Pittsburgh though.

Edit...not on nbcsports, on NFL.com.

The Steelers play a form of football that Goodell hates.Physical,smashmouth, lay somebodythef*%#out football. The Nfl is attempting to protect and "clean" up dirty plays and players(what most of us were raised on) and in order to do this Goodell has to make examples of players who hit hard by penalizing and reprimanding them. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Goodell stay away from the NHL because it's too late to save the NFL

I have Dish Network and I will be watching the NFL Network in glorious 1080i resolution tonight on my 60" TV with 6.1 surround turned up to 11. No blackout. I'm in NE Ohio as well.
