    Is there anyway to find out what teams are blacked out in your zip code? I know that the Major League Baseball web site has a list of zip codes where the games are blacked out for every team. I've looked all over the internet but can't seem to find information about what teams are blacked out in certain areas. Thanks.

    I once heard an nhl guy explain the blackout rule

    it defies logic

    for awhile---on Saturday night no Canadian TV network was able to show any hockey at all due to the CBC rights.

    In some cases balckouts happen due to a request before the season starts.

    I know one year a owner tried to get a game between two of the top teams in the league blacked out because he believed that people would rather sty home and watch a good game then come to the came and watch to bad teams play.
