Please explain why the 49ers-Packers NFL game was not available at sports bars or home customers in many areas of Western Massachusetts or the Boston area. Went to a sports bar with many Packers fans in Amherst, Mass., and the sports bar could not get it because it was ''blacked out.'' A woman at the sports bar in Amherst said her boyfriend also could not get the game via his Direct TV at his home in Boston.
The manager at the Amherst sports bar called someone, apparently with Direct TV, and got a lame explanation that it was a national problem. So who screwed up here and how will you prevent this from happening again? I did call down to sports bar in Enfield, Connecticut, and the game was available there, so kindly explain that too. You will be hearing from loads of pissed off Packers and 49ers fans, so you'd better get the problem fixed.
An apology is in order. I want and deserve a message of explanation. --- Bob Ritzman, Holyoke, Mass. My personal email is email@example.com.
Better hear from you, or I will write you until I do, and I tell other NFL fans to do the same. This is a screwup of great magnitude, in my opinion.
