is there someone we can call,so they know we are all watching.
I HAVE A FEELING THEY WONT SHOW THE BLIMP OR EXPLAIN TO ANYONE VIEWING<that theres A FREAKIN BLIMP OVER THE GAME.

HOW CAN WE CALL THEM OUT for there biased and blatant ignoring of the blimp.

DO YOU GUYS REALLY THINK THEY WILL SHOW THE BLIMP???

.I WOULD BET THEY WONT EVEN MENTION THE BLIMP OVER 70,000 PEOPLE .

any ideas to force them to cover it?if not ,THEY WILL NOT? thats my take.

GODD LUCK BLIMP,WHO CAN WE CALL SO THEY DONT IGNORE?????:eek:

The blimp does not have clearance to fly over the bowl game.
FAA has not given them clearance to get near.
They have to keep a 3 mile distance from the bowl! :mad:

Not unless you have binoculars! ;)

3 mile no fly zone has been imposed.

Probably not. My understanding is that the blimp cannot be within 3 miles of the stadium several hrs (don't remember exact number) before the game and until 1 hr after the game. So I doubt you will see it, especially when the Goodyear blimp is there. ;)

There is a no-fly zone, but only starting an hour before the game. They will actually be over the stadium until then.

This was broadcast a day or two ago but it still gets the word out on the blimp and it's a nice 2 minute long segment.

Showing or even mentioning the blimp would be unlikely at any sporting event, since the broadcasters charge huge money for ads; it would be a betrayal of their paid advertisers and probably contractually "prohibited".

The beauty of the Blimp is that it is seen, many of the people who see it will be voting, and MSM cannot erase the Blimp.

There is no reason to see exclusion of Blimp over Citrus Bowl as an example of MSM ignoring RP.

There are many other obvious examples which are valid, this isn't one of them.
