    So can anyone explain why I'm blacked out from Blazer games when I live 82 miles from the Oregon border, can't receive local Portland Broadcasts and don't have access to the cable broadcasts of the games. Been a fan since the beginning back in the Stan MacKenzie days but am growing increasingly frustrated by the lack of ability to get the games on TV when I'm obviously outside the 75 mile blackout radius??

    im not a blazer rep or super techy but it's probably because your ISP is within the blackout range so your IP is in the blackout range. they claim they can get around this, i'd contact technical support im not sure any are on the boards. (im also willing to bet a good proxy would get around it but they claim it wont)

    I know here in bend oregon i am blacked out on the net cause i have quest and my IP shows im in portland, i have comcast though so i dont get too bothered except that i dont get the blazer channel in HD so the 8 or so games they show on that channel over CSN makes me feel like i live in the 90s so it sucks cause i was going to buy the 8 games at $3 a piece even though i get it on TV but im blacked out, which is funny to me because they would have got money from my cable bill and from me streaming the games but in their greed of wanting people to buy cable before streaming games the missed out on about $20 lol

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

     

    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
