    Default Bengals/Colts game blacked out in Cincinnati

    Thought I'd pass this along since there are those that live in that Southern Indiana/Northern Kentucky/Cincy market.

    Bengals blacked out once again
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 11, 2011, 1:35 PM EDT
    APThe Bengals are one of the surprising stories of this young NFL year. While Iíve enjoyed watching their progress, fans in Cincinnati arenít exactly jumping on the bandwagon.

    The Bengals announced Tuesday that this weekís game against the Colts will be blacked out, via Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

    The news isnít a surprise because Cincinnati hasnít been remotely close to selling a game out thus far. The team has been blacked out for seven straight weeks.

    Carson Palmer will be able to watch the team via DirecTV in Los Angeles.

    I'm kind of surprised this one wasn't sold out early on before it was known Manning was going to be out for a while. Plus Indy is so close to Cincy.

    I think its more about they hate Mike Brown and figure the best way to make him suffer is to take $$$ out of his wallet.

    I live in the Cincy area, and the fans absolutely hate Mike Brown. This Palmer thing finally put them over the edge. The only game that won't be blacked out is the Steelers, and that's because the place will be filled up with 50% Steeler fans. That one will be a dangerous game to go to.

    Anyone else going? I think RWB and myself are among the few to brave the open seats in Cincy...

    I think we're going to try something from Izzy's while there. Just so happens this week's Man VS Food was shot there. I know I can't do it but my grown sons may have a shot. Something like a 6lb Reuben.

    I almost wish it was blacked out here too so I wouldn't have to watch what masquerades for our defense.

    Your TV only gets one channel? How awful.

    What can I say? It's hard to turn away from train wrecks.
