No sellout, no local TV




BY GEOFF HOBSON
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The Bengals failed to sell out Sunday's home opener against the Chargers by Thursday's deadline to lift the local television blackout.

        Which surprised absolutely no one at Spinney Field. Last season at Cinergy, the Bengals exasperated their fans by getting outscored, 211-111.

        “We can't worry about it because we end up playing no matter who's there,” said right tackle Willie Anderson. “Our fans are looking for something to back us up with. If we go out and win this ballgame here, there'll probably be more for the second game.”
