I go to school in west virginia and I have sunday ticket, if the game is blacked out will I still get it here? Or is it just blacked out in the Cincinnati, Dayton, Lexington area?

You will still get it. It will only be blacked out in the Cincinnati area (even on NFL Season Ticket). One of the few advantages to living in Arkansas is that I get to watch every game with NFL Season Ticket. Of course, I never get to eat Skyline cheese coneys...

one of the ONLY advantages of living anywhere NEAR ohio is that the stadium is 14 miles away and i have season tickets, so i get to see each game from 18 rows off the field on the bengals sideline.....and a road game is never blacked out of course...

:thumbsup:

Not blacked out on TV, just a "blackout" where students wear all black. He was making a joke.

No they call it a "blackout game" because all the fans are supposed to wear black... Cute and confusing.

Any word?

I'm blindly hoping that no-news at this point is good news...in the form of some corporate announcement that they want to save until rush hour news hour.

[size="5"][b]Bengals Game Will Air Sunday on Local 12[/b]
[/size]
Last Update: 4:10 pm [color="#1a1a1e"][/color]



The Cincinnati Bengals game against the Baltimore Ravens will be televised on Local 12 this Sunday.

The team has just announced that enough tickets have been sold to ensure there will be no TV blackout. Local 12, Kroger and the Bengals purchased a large number of tickets to help prevent the blackout.

There are tickets still available for fans who want to attend.

In honor of Veterans' Day, Kroger will give away 500 tickets (250 pairs of tickets) to members of the Military. The tickets for the Military will be distributed at the following five Kroger stores tomorrow (Saturday), during the hours designated below:

Kroger Lebanon – (11 a.m.-noon)

Kroger Union (11 a.m.-noon)

Kroger Hyde Park (10-11 a.m.)

Kroger Anderson Towne Center (1-2 p.m.)

Kroger Fairborn (11 a.m.-noon)

At each of the five designated Kroger stores, the first 50 people who come to the promotional van outside the store and show a valid military ID will each get two tickets to the game.

why couldn't the Bengals org. donate those tickets to the military families ? just wondering, not trying to bash or nothing.
[/quote]



I don't know that they didn't. I do know that the Bengals gave 1,000 tickets
to military and charity for the Broncos and 500 for the Texans. So it wouldn't
surprise me if they did this time too. Or just partnered with Kroger.

[b][size="5"]Blackout lifted; game will air locally[/size][/b]
Posted 25 minutes ago

Posted: 4 p.m.

The Bengals announced Friday that Sunday's game against the [url="http://www.baltimoreravens.com/"][color="#f04e23"]Baltimore Ravens[/color][/url] at Paul Brown Stadium will not be blacked out and will air live in Cincinnati on CBS affiliate Local12 at 1 p.m.

In spite of the blackout being lifted, there are seats remaining for the game. They can be purchased by phone through the Bengals Ticket Hotline at 513-621-8383 (TDTD) until 8 p.m. today or between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday. Additionally, tickets may be ordered at any time today or Saturday by [url="http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/160042DA84AB5661?brand=bengals"][color="#f04e23"]clicking here[/color][/url]. Also, tickets may be purchased in person at the Bengals ticket office at Paul Brown Stadium until 5 p.m. Friday, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday and on game day beginning at 9 a.m.

The Bengals, Local 12 (CBS affiliate WKRC-TV in Cincinnati) and Kroger worked together to ensure the blackout would be lifted. In honor of Veterans Day, Kroger will give away 500 tickets (250 pairs of tickets) to members of the Military. The tickets for the Military will be distributed at the following five Kroger stores tomorrow (Saturday), during the hours designated below:

*Kroger Lebanon – (11 a.m.-noon)
*Kroger Union (11 a.m.-noon
*Kroger Hyde Park (10-11 a.m.)
*Kroger Anderson Towne Center (1-2 p.m.)
*Kroger Fairborn (11 a.m.-noon)

At each of the five designated Kroger stores, the first 50 people who come to the promotional van outside the store and show a valid military ID will each get two tickets to the game.

"We are thrilled with the response from our fans, Kroger and Local12, and we are pleased that Bengals fans across the region can watch our game on Sunday," said Katie Blackburn, Bengals executive vice president. "We have great fans and their vocal support will give us a real home field advantage for this big AFC North game. We are especially pleased that we will have so many members of the Military on hand."

"Veterans' Day is a celebration of the brave men and women who have served and defended our country," said Geoff Covert, President of Kroger's Cincinnati/Dayton Marketing Division. "This game presented us with a wonderful opportunity to help the community by assisting in lifting the blackout but, more importantly, the chance to honor Veterans -- the courageous individuals who have laid their lives on the line for our freedom, our safety, and our great nation."

The lifting of the blackout means that the Bengals will extend to 49 their franchise-record streak of consecutive sellouts for regular and postseason games. The last Bengals home game not to be televised locally was on Nov. 9, 2003.

In addition to WKRC-TV (Local 12) in Cincinnati, the Baltimore game now is cleared to be broadcast live on the other two CBS affiliates in the Bengals home market -- WHIO-TV (Channel 7) in Dayton and WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington, Ky.

[b]A NOTE ON WILL CALL
[/b]
Due to the large amount of late ticket orders arranged via will call for Sunday's game, the Bengals ticket office urges fans picking up these tickets to do so early.

Will call tickets will be available for pickup tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Bengals Ticket Office.

Fans who are unable to pick up tickets on Saturday are advised to arrive early on Sunday to avoid long lines. Will call will open on Sunday at 9 a.m.

[b]BENGALS HAVE TOPPED CINCINNATI TV RATINGS FOR 75 STRAIGHT WEEKS
[/b]
In each of the last 75 TV ratings weeks that have included a Bengals regular-season or postseason game — a period dating back to 2004 — the Bengals have ruled the Cincinnati airwaves. They have been the top-rated show among all programming in the Cincinnati market, and usually by a wide margin.
The streak hit 75 with the release of Cincinnati rankings for the week of Oct. 19-25. The Oct. 25 Bengals-Bears game led the way with a rating of 37.6.

The streak began on Dec. 5, 2004, when a wild Bengals win at Baltimore outpolled all other programs for the week.

The rating number indicates the percentage of market households tuned to the game — including those not watching TV at the time. The highest Bengals rating during the streak has been 45.5 for the Pittsburgh playoff game on Jan. 8, 2006.

The high rating of Bengals games has occurred despite the fact most games are played in the afternoon, when overall TV viewership is not as high as it is during the evening.

It'd sure be nice if they would distribute some of these at a Dayton-area Kroger. Dayton... where there's a, you know... Air Force base.

Just sayin'. 1/2 :ninja:
