    TV blackout is likely
    By Bill Coats
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    11/29/2007

    With about 3,000 tickets remaining, it appears unlikely that Sunday's home game vs. Atlanta will be televised here.

    The NFL requires games to be sold out 72 hours before kickoff to avoid local blackout.

    The deadline is noon today, and tickets "aren't moving real well," said Michael Naughton, the Rams' vice president of finance and ticketing. "It doesn't look like we're going to make it."

    The Falcons quaterback situation is way worse than the Rams. I think this game will be like when embarassed the Vikings in the final game of last season.

    This is pretty pathetic. 3 blackouts in a single season? 4 in two seasons?

    It is. Why, the rest of the 31 NFL cities have never experienced 3 or 4 blackouts in 2 seasons since the blackout rule was set in place 34 years ago.

    Even Miami isn't having blackouts as far as I know. Buffalo's had a few the last couple years I believe.

    As for the game... I hate to say it, but I'd have more faith in Joey than Gus.
