    Slow sales could result in no TV for Vikings opener against Atlanta

    [size=13pt]Slow sales could result in no TV for Vikings[/size]

    The Vikings haven't been blacked out on television in 10 years, but the team must sell 5,800 tickets to avoid that fate for the opener.

    The Vikings will launch a major advertising campaign today after acknowledging that their season opener is threatened by a television blackout because of slow ticket sales.....

    That
    is hard to fathom.
    The season opener getting blacked out.
    I guess that is what happens when you have a team with no star power.
    Could this all be in Zygi's master plan.
    It would be alot easier to move a team that cannot sell out their games.
    That would explain why he hired a coach with the personality of a horses a$$.

    It's beyond the season opener, Bunky.

    Not a single game is sold out yet...not even the Packers or Bears games.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    I don't remember where I read it but Zygi said there would be no blackout -- guaranteed!

    How the hell can the people from Minnesota support/sell out a preseason game and not a regular season game.
    Hell you won't even see the starters for the 4th preseason game except for maybe a series.

    Sometimes the people from my home state mystify me.


    Maybe it has something to do with the Falcons.

    The NFL requires the Vikings to sell 62,000 tickets to consider a Metrodome game sold out. Although they have met that figure for Thursday's preseason game against Dallas, the Vikings have sold only 56,200 tickets for the season opener.

    Good thing there are plenty of companies that advertise with the Vikes that will be more than willing to buy up the remaining tickets to prevent such a blackout.

    Exactly.

    For the last 2 years, we haven't had any star power on the offensive side of the ball. But hey, at least we've got Adrian Peterson now. If he eventually becomes what I think
    he will, we shouldn't have to worry about many "blackouts".

    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed

    I have to go the bar and watch it on satelite.
    I live in Connecticut but will be dressed in purple!
    When Peterson has a breakout game the seats will fill..... When we go 4-0 or 3-1 we will be on Sunday night primetime too.
    You watch, we will be Saints of last year! KevinK Connecicut
