Paul Kuharsky isn't mincing words. The Colts are making a serious mistake by risking local television blackouts. Blog
Chief Operating Officer Pete Ward tells The Indianapolis Star the team has 2,000 season tickets still to be sold. If those don't sell, the team will try to sell tickets for individual games.
The NFL recently eased its TV blackout rules, allowing local telecasts if 85 percent of seats are sold. Teams, however, can set the threshold above 85 percent if they wish.
