Seems the NFL keeps making more and more changes to where no one can watch a home game anymore. Well im a tax payer and if I have to pay the taxes to keep the stadum up then by all means I should be allowed to watch the game from my house. Im going to be sending out as letters, emails to Congress to put a stop to it and if not to make a bill to block all home game sports from NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB and so on. THis is bullshit as a taxpayer!!! I dont care for baseball and I dont want it on my TV if they cannot sell out. Just voicing my opinion as a US Taxpayer

No one is at your house forcing you to watch baseball. It is real easy do not turn your tv to that channel.If you and all the other fair weather fans would support your team the bungals then u would get to watch on tv.

this isnt about tv, this is about being a taxpayer and having the right to watch them from the comfort of my home. Not out to pay the outrages prices for food and drinks when Im already supporting it. If Baseball is on tv, then by god it better be a sell out or get it off the tv. I dont support the reds or the bengals but as a taxpayer I have the right to complain and I will do whatever possible, as well the other group to which is being formed to get them off the TV. If I cannot watch an NFL game in the comforts of my home cause it wasnt sold out then by the power of a taxpayer as like many others, no sport needs to be on tv.

Well I cannot help but notice your address lists as Florence. If that is where you live I do not understand how your taxpayer thought applies. The taxpayer's in Cincinnati are the one's footing the bill. I might guess that you work in Ohio . Even if you do your tax burden is not like that of the people who live there. If you are not a baseball fan so be that: however there are 81 home baseball games a year vs 8 in football. As in all case's of life MONEY is what drives everything. This is why the NFL has the setup that they do. With the smaller amount of home games they need sellout's , and the money that all the overpriced refreshments bring in. Without the money how can the bengals or any other team afford to pay the overpriced players to remain competive. I myself do not like to watch the programs on mtv. So guess what I do not watch that channel but I am not out to rid the FREE WORLD of that channel. Beside's that more often than not you will see a better quality game if the bungals are no part of the equation.

Definetly not from FLorence and this Site just puts whatever place I guess. 81 games then there should be a sellout out everygame to foot the bill and pay the overpayed none professional players. I agree with the over priced food a beverage isnt going to draw a crowd and the more the blackouts occur the more frustrated the hardcore sports fans are going to be. I know here in Ohio, the Governor is already addressing a bill that will either stop the blackouts, or ensue them on all homegame sports. RIght now there are a lot of us in favor of the blackouts and games not be telivised for its making them rich while the poor stay poor.

First, that you have a tv to watch when some do not. The poor? Sounds like you are a poor thing and we should dry your eyes. Paying taxes is a problem for you. Get used to it, it aint over yet and paying taxes has nothing to do with blackouts or a tea party.

Well most poor people are on Welfare that Im sure we hard workers are supporting. I am not poor, nor am I rich and yes I have a few TVs. Paying taxes is a problem for everyone who WORKS and supports all those who are too damn lazy to get out and work. As a taxpayer and supporting all those lazy butts, the blackouts were designed to help the overpayed players and all these new stadums being built. They chose to blackout every home NFL game to get people to the stadium and pay over priced food and beverages. Well the group to which is being formed is going to help them but getting the bill which Ohio's Senator has in his office to either loose the blackouts or block all Professional Sports. Im in favor of it. If your not then sorry about your luck "Be Glad" Bring on the Blackouts!!
