Tampa, Florida-- Bucs fans could finally see some relief from those irritating TV blackouts, but the key word here is "could". 

In order for this to happen, Congress would have to pass a bill proposed by Senator John McCain- one that would ban blackouts...sort of.

McCain argues taxpayer dollars fund the stadiums, so they should have the right to watch the games played in them on their own time.

"When the venue in which these sporting events take place has been the beneficiary of taxpayer funding, it is unconscionable to deny those taxpayers who paid for it, the ability to watch the games on television, when they would otherwise be available," said McCain.

More info to come as the conversation continues.
