BOSTON ( MainStreet) -- Want to get your senator's attention? Tell him or her their favorite NFL team's next game is blacked out in its home state.When the Cincinnati Bengals announced earlier this week that Sunday's matchup with their division and cross-state rival Cleveland Browns would be blacked out in Cincinnati and Dayton because the team was going to fail to sell out Cincinnati's Paul Brown stadium 72 hours before kickoff, that didn't sit well with Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio. The senator's office petitioned the Federal Communications Commission's office on Wednesday and asked the commission to reconsider the NFL's home-game blackout rule.
