Sunday’s Saints at Tampa Bay will be a black out due to a non-sell out.
The bright spot for far in Tampa Bay’s home game black-out streak was the October 3 “Monday Night Football” home game against Indianapolis. The sell out of that game ended the consecutive regular-season blackout streak that began in 2010.
With an unemployment rate hovering between 10 and 11 percent and the foreclosure rates close to the highest in the country, the answer is easy to figure out. The fans are sitting at home broke and unable to watch their team play a televised home game.
