The Buffalo Bills announced late Monday evening, the game against the New York Jets in Toronto on Thursday is officially a sellout and the game will be televised locally.
Earlier Monday, no one was saying whether Thursday night's game against the Jets in Toronto would be on television or not.
On Monday, 2 On Your Side called Rogers Communications three times to see if the game is sold out, but we never got a call back.
Rogers is the Canadian company that has the $80 million deal for the Bills to play in Toronto.
We then called the NFL, and a league spokesman said it had no information on ticket sales.
We asked the league if Rogers or the Bills had asked for an extension to meet the rule requiring that a game be sold out 72 hours in advance in order to avoid a blackout, and the spokesman said there had been no such request.
The league told us to contact the Bills since they were the home team.
So we then e-mailed the Bills, saying that
Rogers was not returning phone calls and could the Bills update us on ticket sales.
We got this response back from the team: "As you know, Rogers Communications is handling the tickets, so they would be the ones to comment."
And so we tried Rogers one last time and again received no response.
A source familiar with the situation in Toronto tells us there's been very little excitement there about the game on Thursday.
But the source adds, that there's no way Rogers would allow the game to be blacked out.
