No New Blackout Policy for Bengals


Recommended Posts

So what does everyone think about this ??

Mike Brown had this to say when asked about the situation:

“We’re going to stick with the old rule. What we want to see are sold out houses and we want the stadium full with 65,000-plus people. We don’t want to get to just 85 percent or 55,000,” Brown said, via Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “If you think back when they passed the sales tax to finance the stadiums they did it so people could come downtown to the stadiums and watch games. They didn’t do it so people could sit at home and watch games on television. They could have done that without a new stadium."

I don't care much either way, but the sales tax wasn't simply passed to people could come to the stadium, they wanted to make sure the team stayed here in Cincinnati. Please correct me if i'm wrong, but i'm pretty sure everyone who voted for the tax increase didn't have the intention of becoming regulars at the game.

Thoughts ??
