    Pats to meet Ravens in AFC championship
    Unknown who the broadcast team will be.
    Anyone know what rule change allows this ?
    98.5 can't be too happy about this.

    If they do that my guess is it would be one of the syndicated radio networks, not a local crew.

    I'm fairly certain the game will be on 98.5 as well. 98.5 will have the local broadcast with Gil and Gino while WEEI will broadcast the national announcers.

    I believe starting with conference championships local broadcasts are limited to the local station. Other years up here in Maine there's no Gil & Geno on the network stations after the divisional round. Does WEEI already do some national NFL radio broadcasts, like plenty of other stations?

    WEEI tweeted this earlier today, something about a change in Local blackout rules. Will be the Westwood One broadcast, not sure who their people are.

    I have not listened to a game on the radio for a few years. So I don't know either, but I seem to recall a anti-Patriot bias with at least one of them.
    Why did the rules get changed though ?

    I seem to recall after the Pats 1st SB win, WEEI wanted to air a replay of the national broadcast but wasn't allowed.
    Will this rule change allow them to do that also ?

    WEEI is a sinking ship. I'd rather listen to commercials on 98.5 than flip over and hear their stale shtick.

    Marv has one of the best sports announcing voices.
