    Vikings/Cardinals can't sell tickets...games may be blacked out

    Per the NFL rules, the games must be sellouts to be broadcast on TV. The Cardinals have 5,600 tickets left to sell while the Vikings have 11,000.

    FOX Sports on MSN - NFL - Vikes, Cards get extensions to sell more tickets

    Someone will step in and buy the tickets if they don't sell.

    I wonder when they reach "sell out status?"

    For the Viking game, you can get 28th row at the 50 for $160...Ouch!

    That is weird.. That is what 8 years of crap will get you though. That is why I hope ISU can turn it around while we have people interested.

    Re: Vikings/Cardinals can't sell tickets...games may be blacked out

    Let's say the Viking game gets blacked out because they can't get enough tickets sold for a playoff game.

    Would that be a possible factor in the Vikings moving to LA?

    I saw a report similar to this yesterday and went to get tickets and they were sold out on ticketmaster.

    EDIT: Now you can get them today

    Welcome to the hell of being a Cubs fan in Des Moines. 5 hours away from Chicago, but we are in their home market, so we're constantly blacked out.

    Oh, and we're also the home markets of the Royals, Twins and White Sox.

    And BTW, they shouldn't be blacking ANYONE out for NFL playoff games. Even MLB isn't dumb enough to do that.

    I just went through the Ticketmaster link on the Vikings website, and found two lower level tickets for $160 each + fees. That is an insane price.

    EDIT: Looks like even the upper level tickets are $160. No wonder they can't sell out. I can get 3rd row of the upper level on the 50 yard line right now. I'll bet there's more than 11k tickets available.
