By Alex Wiebe-Lambs article If you’re an NFL fan and have had to deal with the dreaded ‘power-outage’ this weekend, you may want to brace yourself.
It’s an issue that has been plaguing fans of professional football since the early days of the league and has plagued NFL games since it began.
The NFL says it has a “power-over” system to deal out a power-fail notification, and that if the game is delayed by 10 minutes or more the fan notification will be given through a text message or text message to the player or coaches.
However, that doesn’t apply to games scheduled to air on the same night of the week as the regular season.
This has caused problems for fans who have watched games at home, which have also been affected.
For example, on Thursday night, the Philadelphia Eagles were scheduled to play the Cleveland Browns at 8pm ET.
However, they were delayed by 30 minutes.
On Saturday, the New Orleans Saints were scheduled for the Washington Redskins at 8:30pm ET, but they were forced to cancel due to weather conditions.
Fans in the Tampa Bay area have been affected by this as well.
As of this writing, the Buccaneers and Jaguars are the only two teams that have not been able to play their games.
The issue was first brought to light in a tweet from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on Sunday.
While he was attempting to make sense of the situation, he saw a message for fans in the area:The tweet was retweeted by several NFL Network Twitter followers, including ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Bleacher Report’s Jon Machota.
The tweet was shared by BleacherReport.com.
In response, Rapoporets Twitter account was inundated with angry messages and threats.
Rapopores account was then hacked.
In the tweet below, he tells fans that he has been banned from Twitter, and the tweets were taken down.
In the tweet, Rappert says the NFL “is the only league that allows fans to be banned from their own networks.”
Rapopord says that the NFL has a power outage protocol that “wouldn’t be out of place at a golf course, a football game, a sports bar, or a concert venue.”
The NFL said it is working with the league office to resolve the issue.
