    I don't understand the blackout rules. I thought that was for people who lived in the area of the game.

    The last time I looked, Albuquerque wasn't anywhere close to Phoenix.

    Good morning as well. I'm working on the coffee. I'm glad you got some rain yesterday. No such luck in our area.

    Me neither.
    It's 6 hours from here to Phoenix, and 6 six hours from here to Denver.
    We are in the middle of two markets I guess.:shrug:

    I'd make a phone call to get an explanation. It doesn't sound right.

    I called and got my answer.
    Bally's is basically blocking my zip code.

    I'm dumbfounded. It doesn't make any sense.

    Yeah, it doesn't make any sense. They've basically forced me to watch streaming for free when I'd happily pay for the games if I had the option. I think the only way to pay for all the games is to subscribe to cable, which isn't going to happen. Very strange strategy.

    :shrug: Maybe bally is trying to keep it local. It doesn't explain why I can use the app.
    The bally app is working fine during the replay of the coyotes game.:rockon:

    The original idea was to blackout games close to home so fans would attend the games. Living out of state it's not realistic for fans to attend the game. I don't understand the logic.

    What's going on now is beyond weird from my perspective.

    That's such a stupid premise. So they only want fans that have the time and resources to attend games? It's not realistic for the average person in the area either. My 14 year old daughter is the biggest suns fan I know. She has 4 Book jerseys. But, we're not going to rearrange our lives to attend 41 home games a year. That's ridiculous.

    I'm going to need a new couch soon.:(
    :idea: Maybe I can find a cover for the couch.

    There is a huge rip in the cushions. Oy

    Rattler? I'd avoid the area too.

    I am much like Indiana Jones and not a fan of snakes--poisonous or otherwise.

    Kill it with fire and prominently display its charred corpse for all other snakes to see what happens when they slither where they're not wanted.
