Quote from: Pat Yasinskas
Zain in Tampa writes: “There's a reason we hate the Glazers so much around here. But let's make something clear, it is the sons we hate, not the father. The father has been a great owner in his time. He got it, period. The sons? They have no business running a sports franchise.’’

Pat Yasinskas: Malcolm Glazer obviously was a very astute businessman and that’s how he assembled a huge fortune. But the fact is, he never was heavily involved in the day-to-day operations of the Bucs. Yes, he was available for consult and ultimately signed off on major decisions. But, since the day the Glazer family bought the team, sons Bryan and Joel have run the day-to-day operations and youngest son, Ed, joined them a bit later. The only thing that’s changed in recent years is that Malcolm Glazer has had some health problems and has even less to do with the day-to-day operations. Truth is, part of the reason Malcolm Glazer bought the team in the first place was because his sons were huge football fans. Malcolm Glazer didn't follow the game all that closely. In fact, there's a legendary story about one of the few news conferences he ever took part in. It was to announce a contract extension for Warren Sapp and the plan called for him to make a joke about how the contract meant Sapp better produce a lot of sacks. Before the news conference started, a Bucs staffer had to take Malcolm Glazer aside and explain what a sack was.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Maybe it's just us die-hards around here, but I thought everyone knew that Malcolm always had little if anything to do with the operations of the bucs...

meh.

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

Zain is a typical Tampa idiot who would rather listen to everyone else and read what others say to form his opinion. Some of us, Actually few of us, have this thing called a brain which lets us think about the facts and form our OWN opinion.

Does Yanky know those cheap Glazers let Antonio Bryant walk because they don't care about winning or Josh Freeman's development?

Are some fans really that dumb? I would love to live in TB and go to every game. The stuff I see the Glazer family do for the people of Tampa the Bengals never do. Tampa fans don't know how lucky they really are, maybe the Glazers should act like the Mike Brown and show TB fans what it's really like to be bad owners.

Yea until Morris brings in 2 SB which he will, Gruden who I appreciate for doing good 1 year will be forgotten because he could only do it for 1 year if you can't win more than 2 winning seasons out of 6 years with no games won in the playoffs I don't see how that can be classified as " Greatest Bucs coach ever. How is 2 winning season in 6 years good? both games lost in Wildcard games. 5-11 in 04? 4-12 in 06?  some great coach.

The bucs are in the bottom half of ticket prices and it was more than 3 years ago. Last year they were 17th and have dropped the prices of some tickets since then. Add in the fact that 12 teams raised prices last year and few did again this year as well, Bucs ticket prices are bleow the league average.

Nice try though.

Malcom didn't do any of what you just said, his sons did from the beginning, he just signed the checks.
