As we have written in The Buffalo News and on the Press Coverage blog all week, the Buffalo Bills have a delicate decision to make regarding the NFL's new television blackout system.
To quickly recap: The old policy was that a 100 percent sellout of non-premium seats was needed 72 hours before kickoff for a game to be televised locally. The NFL has lowered the minimum to 85 percent of non-premium tickets sold. Hooray for the fans, right? Well, clubs must opt into the new system, and if they do, then they must pay into a league-wide revenue pool. As Buffalo News writer Gene Warner reported this "likely would cost [the Bills] several hundred thousand dollars per season."
So you can see the Bills' quandary.
Let's find out what Press Coverage readers think the Bills should do -- and what they would be willing to do. These are not scientific polls, but then again this never claimed to be a scientific blog.
