Rams-Hawks Game Blacked Out

From: ProFootballTalk.com

If the fans in St. Louis want to see Sunday’s epic battle between the 2-11 Rams and the 2-11 Seahawks, they’ll need to buy a ticket.

The deadline of 72 hours before Sunday’s kickoff has passed, and the game has not sold out, so it will be blacked out on local TV.

It’s the first Rams game this season that didn’t sell out, and it’s just the fifth time since the Rams moved to St. Louis in 1995 that the Rams won’t be on local TV.

In an ominous sign of declining support for the team, all five of the blackouts have been late-season games in the last three years: The final home game of the 2006 season failed to sell out, as did the last three home games of 2007, and now the next-to-last home game of 2008.

For a team whose owners are hoping to sell, declining attendance has to be considered a bad sign.

    so if they are looking at selling this must mean the Rams are not exactly rushing to compete. Financially I mean.
