NFL creates sites to rally support around blackout rule

With the FCC pondering an end to rules that restrict the local TV blackout of sports events that aren't sold out, the National Football League on Monday launched a website aimed at protecting the league's ability to mandate blackouts. "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.
