Video Blog-NFL Blackout Rules Explained

Bills choice may determine whether late season games are on local TV
The NFL has relaxed it's blackout rules so that teams in 2012 can have games televised locally if they only sell out 85 percent of their games.

However, each team can determine if they want games televised at 85 percent of a sellout, 100 percent or maybe any number in between. Tickets sold past the blackout threshold will be subject to additional revenue sharing. In other words, if a team picks 85 percent to lift a blackout and then sells out, they will be throwing away hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The Bills have three games at Ralph Wilson Stadium in December. What number will they pick? What number should they pick? Is this a good idea? Thad Brown and Prescott Rossi discuss in our video blog.
