BUFFALO, NY - Congressman Brian Higgins (D) is getting on the bandwagon to ask the FCC lift the NFL blackout rule.

Higgins sent a letter to the FCC this week and spoke on the House floor about lifting the ban.

blackout rule denies fans who have invested their time, consumer spending and local tax dollars in the Bills from being able to watch their team play," said Congressman Higgins.

According to an article on the New York Times, the FCC is looking toward eliminating NFL blackout rules here, and throughout the league.

After pressure from the fans, the FCC have started asking for public opinion on the issue, which is the first step in reversing this rule that most football fans say is outdated.
