It was enacted in 2014 on a year to year basis.  per Wiki it spoke to 2014, 2015 and 2016.   

 

thus far I cant find too much more on it.  

 

 

 

there is something about 3 games aired in each market ...

 

NFL makes TV changes for 2019 season, eliminates single ...

expanding search criteria from blackout to sell out

"I didn't vote against lifting the blackout as much as I voted against they tied to it a requirement that teams that are low-revenue teams, teams that aren't selling out, have to pay a higher visiting team share," Brown said.

Brown's problem is that he doesn't think the rule that passed with the blackout policy is fair. Under the new rule, homes teams have to split their revenue with away teams based on the revenue generated from selling 85 percent of the home team's tickets.

When you have a competitive team....  sure.   

 

When you suck ....  it only makes it worse.   Attendance in Miami has been bad for a long long time. 

 

Thinking about it more, maybe I misspoke as really not an attendance thing. It's more a TV sponsor thing as are you going to watch the Miami game on TV on CBS or instead watch the other game on FOX.  Though that would be the same argument when they are playing on the road and then there are two completing games.

 

So guess not sure if it's geared towards attendance or TV??
