NFL creates sites to rally support around blackout rule

"Pay-TV lobbyists have manufactured a controversy in an effort to change the current rule and charge fans for games they currently watch for free," the site contends. "We cannot let these special interest dictate what is best for NFL fans and their communities." Check out the ProtectFootballOnFreeTV site here.
