Dolphins Will Do 'Everything' Possible To Avoid Blackouts

During the 2011 NFL season, only the Cincinnati Bengals filled a lower percentage of their stadium than the Miami Dolphins. With 81% of their seats filled, according to attendance stats, even if the Dolphins completely took advantage of the NFL's new relaxed blackout policy, they would need to fill additional seats to get their games on local television.

Dolphins CEO Mike Dee spoke to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post about the team's increased priority on avoiding potential blackouts at all costs:

"Our goal is always to do everything we can to keep the games on local television," Dee said. "And market and sell and do everything we can to sell as many tickets as possible, and hopefully get to that point in time when we can sell out the games organically."
