The Raiders and KGO-TV agreed Sunday to buy any leftover tickets for the team's game tonight against the New York Jets, ensuring it will be shown at 6 p.m. on Channel 7.

The team did not divulge how many seats are unsold but said tickets are available. Games typically must be sold out 72 hours in advance to be on local TV. The Raiders needed two extensions before announcing the deal.

Man, if they'd had *any* guts they'd have just let it get silver-and-blacked out. Still, I guess I'll watch...if I'm awake. ;-)

I didn't know the monday night game could get blacked out.

Even playoff games can get blacked out, A few years back the Bills were playing the Raiders in Buffalo in a playoff game and the forcast was for -17 (I think that includes teh windchill) anyway a number of local buisnesses ponied up the money for the extra tickets. My fathers was one so I got to go free with a bunch of other guys from my high school.

Wow. It ain't perfect-- it's missing the halftime show and most of the third quarter-- but it's still by a considerable margin the most-complete version of the First AFL-NFL World Championship Game ever found.
