Default McCain leads drive to end blackout of NFL games

McCain leads drive to end blackout of NFL games, targets publically financed stadiums

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain is taking the field against a long-standing federal regulation that blocks NFL fans from seeing televised, hometown games when their stadium doesn’t sell out.

McCain rolled out his game plan in May, as part of a larger Senate bill to allow pay-TV viewers to pick and choose channels instead of being forced to purchases them in typically more-expensive packages.

The blackout rule, adopted by the National Football League in 1975, essentially blocks local TV stations from broadcasting games in home markets if the stadium is not sold out 72 hours before kickoff and prevents cable and satellite providers from carrying the games.

At least he's focusing on the important issues facing the nation and world today.


Is it any wonder why the rest of the world hates us?

No.... Cleveland is the reason intelligent alien life forms have refused to contact us directly. The anal probings have been research to find out exactly what the hell is in our asses to have made such a mess out by that lake and whether or not it's even safe to risk being that close to such toxicity.

And here I thought it was because we saved everyone's asses around the world so many times, they just resent us and everything we used to stand for.
