The Star has a story about the potentiality of the Chiefs first preseason homegame getting blacked out. My immediate reaction was bewilderment at the fact that blackout rules would even apply to preseason games. Anyone who has ever been to a single preseason game would understand why.
But it also prompts a more important question. Is this the year we finally face a regular season blackout in KC? It hasn't happened in over 140 games, but if the Chiefs come out of the gate 2-6 or something similar you have to think it is a likelihood this year. You know, not that it isn't fun to spend about $200 and a couple of hours in traffic to watch your team get pummeled.
