  • Sellout Requirements Met; Rams-Saints On Local TV

    Sellout requirements met; Rams-Saints on local TV

    It took a 24-hour extension of the sellout deadline. And a promotion in which for every ticket sold this week, the Rams would donate one ticket to a member of the military.

    But Sunday’s home game against the New Orleans Saints has met NFL sellout requirements and will be televised locally. Kickoff is noon at the Edward Jones Dome.

    Re: Sellout Requirements Met; Rams-Saints On Local TV

    Glad to hear it. It's nice to see our team being supported in a down season in the middle of a down economy. Plus, I like to see that we're willing to give tickets away to people who deserve it instead of having empty seats just piling up.

      TV blackout all but a certainty for Rams-Seahawks on Sunday

      After two weeks of near-misses on television blackouts, it appears there is no escaping one this week. With more than 8,000 tickets remaining for Sunday’s game against Seattle at the Edward Jones Dome, it looks like the Thanksgiving weekend won’t include a St. Louis Rams game on local TV.

      “I’m not optimistic at all,” said Kevin Demoff, Rams executive vice president of football operations.

      With so many tickets unsold, Demoff said he doubted that the Rams would ask for a 24-hour blackout extension later in the week.

      Rams Assure Sellout, Local TV For Sunday's Game

      Rams assure sellout, local TV for Sunday’s game

      Local St. Louis Rams fans — and those St. Louisans who still embrace Kurt Warner and/or the former St. Louis Cardinals — will be able to watch Sunday’s game on television after all.

      A TV blackout was averted when the Rams bought up the remaining tickets at today’s 3:05 p.m. extended deadline and donated them to local charities and youth groups, assuring that the NFL sellout requirements were satisfied. The number of remaining tickets was believed to be about 4,500.

      Each of the Rams’ five games this year has met those requirements and has been aired here.

      Rams reach sellout requirements
      by netminder
      How many tickets have to be sold to me sellout requirement? The Rams are 12,000 seats short of a sellout but yet they will be on tv locally. How many seats would have to remain for a blackout?

      No Rams on TV: Team's sellout streak ends
      by RamWraith
      By Jim Thomas

      The home sellout streak is over for the Rams. For the first time since the franchise moved to St. Louis in 1995, a home game will not be televised locally.

      The Rams did not reach NFL sellout requirements by noon Thursday, so Sunday’s final home game of the season against Washington will be blacked out to local fans, according to team officials. About 3,000 tickets remain for the contest, and neither the Rams nor Fox (Channel 2), which has the rights to televise the game, were willing to buy up the tickets.

      Until Sunday, all 95 regular-season home games and all five home playoff games by the Rams had been televised locally.

      Rams-Seahawks Fail To Achieve Sellout, Won't Be On TV Here

      Rams-Seahawks fail to achieve sellout, won’t be on TV here

      For the first time this season — and for just the seventh time since the team moved here in 1995 — a St. Louis Rams home game will be blacked on local television. Several thousand tickets remained for Sunday’s noon contest against the Seahawks as of late Friday afternoon.

      Normally, a game must be sold out 72 hours before kickoff, but that deadline often is softened during holiday weeks.
