It appears that our Caretaker needs to learn everything the hard way. This isn't Lulu or one of your other ventures, Bob. I won't even say it's CFL football. This is Hamilton.
If you care to look back over the years when blackouts were part of the norm, you'll notice that this idea failed.
Several fans had the idea that if they couldn't watch the game when it was impossible for them to attend, why bother at all. The NFL grew into prominence in these parts and likely will again if you pursue your idea.
Eventually, the realization occurred that, in order to keep fan interest at a high, it was necessary to give them full access to games, both attended and unattended. This, generally worked!
I'm sure that TV sponsorship and ratings also went up. This all adds up to success for our local team. Do CFL teams manage to squeeze any revenue from the TV networks that have the privilege of broadcasting our games? If not, they definitely should. The networks and the CFL need to work together in a co operative spirit on this. Blackouts won't work!
Blackouts would be a regression in my opinion. Stick to the proven theory.
