    Probably won't hear anything more until Thursday. Noon that day will be the time of the announcement.

    It seems to me that the Mille Lacs area is outside the blackout area.
    Can anyone confirm that for me?
    Thank you in advance.

    The Vikings might need corporate intervention to avoid a television blackout of Sunday's regular-season opener against Atlanta.

    In the seven days since acknowledging a dangerous ticket surplus, the team had sold about 2,300 tickets -- less than half the total they must move by Thursday at noon. As of Tuesday afternoon, the Vikings had 3,500 tickets available, according to Vice President of Sales and Marketing Steve LaCroix.

    LaCroix acknowledged last week the team has had discussions with local companies that might have the resources and interest in making a bulk purchase...

    The Vikings announced they have 3,500 tickets remaining for Sunday’s regular-season opener against Atlanta at the Metrodome. The team has until noon Thursday to sell those tickets or it will face its first blackout since the 1997 season....

    It has been so long since I had to go up to watch a black out that I couldn't remember if I went up there for that purpose, or if I was already up there.

    The Vikes were granted an extension last night and have until Friday at noon to sell the tickets.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Lordy I hope not.

    Not you, too!!

    Wilf CANNOT do anything about this - NFL rules prohibit the team or anyone connected with the team from purchasing the tickets to ensure no blackouts.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
