Kaufman: Eagles-Bucs “Will Not” Be Blacked Out

December 6th, 2012

Ira Kaufman

Now Joe reported earlier this week to expect the Eagles-Bucs game Sunday to be televised locally.

Of course, we won’t know for sure until 1 p.m. today, the NFL-imposed deadline to sell 85 percent of non-premium seats at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway.

But plugged-in Bucs beat writer eye-RAH! Kaufman had no hesitation that the game will be televised locally when he boldly stated as such while making his weekly appearance on “Mad Dog Radio,” hosted by the one and only Chris “Mad Dog’ Russo, heard exclusively on SiriusXM Radio.

On a segment called “Kaufman’s Korner,” Russo and Kaufman were discussing how many swaths of empty seats can be found at many NFL stadia each week, not just in Tampa Bay. Russo was adamant that more and more football fans prefer the at-home experience of the NFL as opposed to the all-day hassle of the in-stadium experience. Kaufman concurred.

(Joe has written this very premise countless times over the past few months and is happy that prominent sports voices like Kaufman and Russo are now seeing the light.)

Then, Kaufman went a step further. Boasting that he was calling from the “Blackout Capital of the NFL,” Kaufman shouted that the Eagles-Bucs game “will NOT be blacked out” Sunday.

We will find out in just a few hours.

    I believe the Glazer gaggle are building a case against the fans…because there is NO WAY on earth only 54k were at the Falcons game. At least 62k were there. They will eventually try to move to L.A. or England (mark my words)

    No NFL team is relocating to England anytime soon (mark my words).
