On Tuesday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) formally voted to end the blackout policy that allowed the NFL to not televise league games that weren’t sellouts in local markets.

Today, FCC commissioner Ajit Pai had some interesting takes on the decision.

“It’s a long time coming,” said Pai. “I think members of the public and ultimately the FCC came to the realization that this 40-year-old rule wasn’t serving public interest.”

The League of Fans has long fought against the NFL blackout policy. See our most recent take on the issue.
