Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Up to a dozen NFL teams this year might face game blackouts, including the Dolphins, according to the St. Louis Business Journal. Under NFL rules, any home game that doesn't sell out within 72 hours of kickoff cannot be broadcast locally. Ten to 12 teams were mentioned as possible blackout victims this weekend at an owners' meeting in Chicago. 

Tickets for all Fins home games, including the Pats game December 6, are still available through Ticketmaster

Let's hope the Fins' situation will be better than that of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Team sources say they don't expect any of their home games to sell out.
