It's all just chiche anymore. These things don't deter people in other cities from attending games.
Oh, you have got to be kidding me. What an absolute joke series of posts.
PBS had a pretty good several year sellout streak going. And the stuff about the Bengals being the worst team in sports? Yeah that's not an excuse. This isn't a bad sports town, not by any means. If it were the Reds wouldn't have MLB's best TV and radio ratings. The city is just sick of losers. When the Bengals actually win a playoff game and stop getting their asses absolutely kicked every time the Steelers and Ravens are in town, if the blackouts are still happening, then you can talk.
BTW, maybe the NLDS tickets were so cheap because the team was about to pull off one of the most prolific choke jobs in about 20 years? One that star players started to lay on the feet of the fans? Despite that, if you were there like I was, you would know the stadium and banks were packed and buzzing. If you want to talk about a team that couldn't fill their stadium during the playoffs, see the Yankees during this year's ALCS.
