Miami Dolphins buy up 10,000 unsold tickets to ensure no blackout
 

 
Miami Dolphins game vs. Houston Texans will NOT be blacked out
by Ben Volin

The Dolphins’ regular season non-blackout streak will apparently reach 103 games this Sunday.

Several fans have informed the Post this afternoon that Dolphins CEO Mike Dee is robo-calling season ticket holders with the news that Sunday’s game against the Texans will not be blacked out, after all. An official announcement should be coming from the team shortly.

Approximately 10,000 tickets remained available as of Thursday morning, but in the robo-call, Dee says the team and several sponsors, most notably Anheuser-Busch, bought up the remaining tickets so fans in South Florida can watch the game live on TV. The tickets will be given to season-ticket holders on a complimentary basis — those in the 100 and 400 levels get two free tickets, those in the club level will get four, and those in the luxury suites will get eight.

The deadline to avoid a blackout was today at 4:15 p.m. The Dolphins have not had a regular season game blacked out since a home game against the Rams on Oct. 18, 1998, though a December, 2000 playoff game against the Colts was blacked out.

-------------------------

Interesting that the team and their sponsors went out and bought 10,000 tickets. That's a ton. This could come back to bite them during the season giving fans less incentive to buy tickets because even if they don't it'll still be on TV. Not a good move IMO. That rarely works. At least they're giving them out free to season ticket holders to bring extra friends/family.

Lots of teams are having trouble selling tickets this year, most notably the Florida teams, although Tampa Bay is the only team to have a blackout as of yet (Makes it 9 straight including all games last year.)

While Tampa Bay obviously has the worst ticket sales problem out of the 3 Florida teams, surprisingly the 2nd worst is not the much maligned Jacksonville Jaguars but actually the Miami Dolphins. Both sold out their home openers though which Tampa Bay cannot say, but the Dolphins are in pretty bad shape. The Jaguars aren't in the clear either, they are doing better than the other 2 but games against the lowly Bengals and the aforementioned Tampa Bay Bucs are in doubt later on in the year.
