ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP)—The Oakland Raiders have sold out Sunday’s AFC West showdown against Kansas City to avoid a 12th straight local blackout.

The Raiders announced Friday that the game had been sold out. Games normally need to be sold out 72 hours before kickoff to avoid a blackout in a 75-mile radius. The Raiders were granted an extension.

The Raiders had not sold out a game since last season’s prime-time opener against San Diego. Oakland is averaging 41,153 fans a game this season, with a high of more than 48,000 for the home opener against St. Louis.

The Raiders have had 80 of 125 regular-season home games blacked out since moving back from Los Angeles for the 1995 season.

This is good news. Will make a more lively game. I hope Shaun Smith trots in front of the black hole and gives them the scrotum crush sign.

This sounds like a plan.

I agree, I wouldn't want it any other way either.

It's also just good for the league overall. It's a ghost town for a lot of teams still. Oakland is the complete bottom of the barrel as far as attendance and attendance percentage.

It's better than having Al Davis as the owner of your favorite NFL team.

Something tells me that all the fans that would have wanted to watch this on TV bought a ticket. Nobody else in Oakland is going to give a shit.

This is why relaxing the drug laws is a bad idea.

It is the bay area so a bromance and a Raiders game isn't out of the question for faider fans.

Internet rumor going around twitter is that bay area Chiefs fan bought the tickets & there will be more Chiefs fans there than normal.

Interesting.

it would explain why one minute they were fighting a blackout and the next they were sold out.

still more likely that Davis gave some business a discount to avoid the embarrassment

The way he's been playing, Shaun Smith can fuck whoever he wants. Including Darren McFadden.

Sweet. Chiefs/Raiders has meaning again. The planets are obviously getting back into alignment.

I thought I heard somewhere that they were offering a free ticket for another game if you bought a ticket to this one to try and sell it out.
