Gene Frenette on the NFL’s Blackout Policy

Gene Frenette throws out an idea for the NFL to appeal to fans following the lockout.

“The NFL should go one step further: lift the blackout rule for at least the first four regular-season games as a gesture to fans, many of whom are apathetic due to labor issues. The toughest games to sell will be early on because fans are livid at players and owners fighting over billions of dollars. So why not send a message to fans they’ll be assured of having all home games televised for a little while?”
