QUICK KICK: Flashback: SI Article From '73 On Blackout Policy

Here’s a really interesting article from Sports Illustrated‘s vault on the (then) new blackout law. The opening story is hilarious, as is this gem at the end about a letter a Philadelphia Eagles fan wrote to owner Leonard Tose:

“Don’t be so irked about the anti-blackout law,” the fan advised. “I took advantage of the free game on TV, but I promise I will never watch the Eagles again.”
