NFL's TV Policy Hurts St. Louis Fans Again

Last night, the St. Louis Rams defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 17-9 in their annual game for the Governor's Cup, moving their preseason record to 3-1 and wrapping it up on a positive note as they prepare for their regular season opening game next weekend in Seattle. However, if you were a fan in the St. Louis area tuning to KTVI FOX 2 as the game was going on, you would probably be forgiven for wondering if the Rams even played a fourth preseason game this year. NFL policy prohibits home games from airing live in a team's home market if the game is not sold out, and since the Edward Jones Dome was not filled to capacity last night, St. Louis fans expecting to watch football last night were forced to wait for late night TV to see the game.

Granted, while it is disappointing that the majority of Rams fans in the metro area were unable to witness their team's victory last night, this is still the preseason we're talking about. There have been some interesting stories throughout the league already, but at this point in the preseason, most football fans are probably ready for the regular season to start. Hopefully more tickets will sell and network communication will improve for the September 27th regular season home opener against the Packers.
