    So, I'm a Blazer fan (obviously).

    I currently live with my parents and my parents refuse to get cable. We have high speed internet, but they won't add cable. No fault to them, why fix something that's not broken?

    Watching Blazer games on TV? Out of the question.

    What are my other options?

    I can't pay on the Livestream (2.99/game), when I click 'validate my Zipcode' I get a notification saying 'You're able to watch it on TB'

    So I can't Livestream and I can't watch games on TV.....

    What are my other options? To go to a bar or go through an illegal website and watch streams (P2P).

    I'm not into the whole bar scene, so every Blazer game night, I log on a European website, watch the games some guy in Turkey is broadcasting.

    Really? The ironic part about this whole 'blackout' thing, is I'm willing to pay money. I would be more than willing to pay 5 bucks a game or a seasonal pass for ~200 bucks. But I don't have this option. Because I live in Portland, I'm restricted to watching horrible quality live streams from some guy in Europe.

    I'm sick of this.......

    /Rant over.
    I am a fan of Skype (BeLiKiN33), Heroes Of Newerth (DKTiki), NBA (Blazers), NFL (KC Chiefs), Japan, Education, Hermitting, Gaming and women.

    That sucks dude. Gotta say though your story there is the perfect example of why this whole Comcast deal is so f'd up. Does anyone know when the current contract with Comcast expires? Cuz Blazer fans really deserve something better than this.

    I grew up listening to Schonz, because of Blazer home blackouts. I feel ya.

    But hey, Wheels and Tone are the best in the business, GO BLAZERS! 

    I am a fan of multiple All-Stars on the Blazers roster this season!

    I would just listen to the games on the radio if the quality is that bad

    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.

    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...

    How I miss you. I want to take this time to appreciate the Blazers not appreciating the fans.

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
