Website aims to end Bengal blackouts

Cincinnati Bengals fan Scott Sander is starting a campaign to solicit local businesses to help end the blackout of the team's games on television.

Sander, a 42-year-old software salesman, has started Bengalsblackoutlifters.com, and is encouraging local businesses to contribute to purchase the remaining tickets so fans in the greater Cincinnati market can see the Bengals from their living rooms.

"I'm not crazy. But I admit from a business standpoint it will be tough," Sander told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Through 10 days, the site has had 647 visitors, and though some people in Cincinnati are against supporting Bengals owner Mike Brown, Sander just wants to see his favorite team play.

In some years, fans probably would have preferred to see an infomerical or 20-year-old movie that might run in the Bengals' blacked out time slot, but this year at 4-2, Cincinnati has been surprisingly competitive, meaning that Sander's campaign might have a fighting chance to gain support.
