I am not suggesting that they start by broadcasting home games with unsold tickets available. Instead, broadcast the away games. For instance, if the T-Birds were playing in Spokane the game could be broadcast in the Seattle market. Chiefs games in Seattle would be broadcast in the Spokane market, etc. Rather than hurt ticket sales, broadcasting the away games might actually help ticket sales for the home games. If I were a T-Bird fan I'd love turn on my television to see the away games in Portland.
