  • Get Ready For Another St. Louis Rams Blackout

    Get ready for another St. Louis Rams blackout

    For the second time this season, the Rams will wear their throwback uniforms from the 1999 Super Bowl championship season. The team also plans to honor former Rams great Merlin Olsen, who is battling cancer. There will be two new offensive guards in the lineup, and perhaps another appearance by rookie QB Keith Null.

    But those in the St. Louis area will have to buy a ticket to see Sunday’s home game against the Houston Texans. With more than 8,000 tickets remaining as of Tuesday afternoon, the team is headed for its second straight blacked out game at the Edward Jones Dome, meaning no local television.

    Rams Season Finale Will Be Blacked Out

    Rams season finale will be blacked out

    For the third home game in a row, the St. Louis Rams will be blacked out on local television. With more than 8,000 tickets remaining at the start of the week, the Rams did not seek an extension of the blackout deadline Thursday.

    As a result, Sunday’s season finale against San Francisco at the Edward Jones Dome will be the ninth game blacked out since the Rams moved to St. Louis in 1995.

    Rams request blackout exemption again

    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.

    Blackout avoided: Rams' opener a sellout

    It went down to the wire, but the final tickets for the Rams’ game against Carolina on Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome were sold by noon Thursday, meaning that the season opener will be televised locally (KTVI, Channel 2).

    Under NFL rules, games must be sellouts 72 hours before kickoff or they are blacked out in the home market.

    Only one regular-season game has failed to sell out -– last Christmas Eve vs. Washington -– since the Rams moved here in 1995.

    Rams will be blacked out again

    The Rams’ home game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns failed to sell out by noon Thursday, which means that it won’t be televised here.

    NFL rules mandate that if a game isn’t sold out 72 hours before kickoff, it will be blacked out in the home market. On Wednesday night, about 2,900 tickets remained on sale.

    The Rams’ last game at the Edward Jones Dome, Oct. 7 against Arizona, also was blacked out.

    Before this season, only one game -- last Christmas Eve vs. Washington -– had failed to sell out since the Rams moved here in 1995.

    CBS will televise the Indianapolis at Carolina game in the St. Louis market on Sunday.

    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.
