Physically Challenged Bills Fan Protests Blackout Rule

Ralph Wilson Stadium – the home field for the Buffalo Bills football team – seats more than 70,000 people.

If the Bills do not sell every last ticket to a home game, the game is not shown on TV.

This is a rule put in place by the National Football League (NFL). It’s called a “blackout rule.” TV games are “blacked out” – not shown – if the stadium is not full.
