    Rams assure sellout, local TV for Sunday’s game
    By Bill Coats

    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.

      I heard that the Raiders don't have enough seats to sell, and they're going into a blackout. Will we be able to see them from live streamtv?

      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."

      TV Blackout All But Certainty For Rams-Seahawks On Sunday

      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 Request Blackout Exemption Again

      Rams request blackout exemption again
      By Jim Thomas

      For the second week in a row, the Rams have asked for a 24-hour extension to the NFL’s sellout deadline. Without the extension, games must meet sellout requirements 72 hours before kickoff to be televised locally. The extension gives the Rams an extra day, or until Friday afternoon.

      About 4,500 tickets remain for Sunday’s St. Louis Rams game against the Arizona Cardinals at the Edward Jones Dome. Kickoff is 3:05 p.m., St. Louis time.
