What is a television blackout and why do they still exist????  As more and more people don't have the money to attend games on a regular basis why don't the television and nfl get rid of stupid blackout restrictions

Why don't they get rid of them?  Because they don't have to.

I was going to flip over to it during the half time n it is just a blue screen saying the game was blacked out.  it is absolutely stupid especially for a preseason game
