Cowboys and Colts sell out.

Falcons and Saints will depend on the crowd that comes in on the visiting side.

Rest black out.

It Is. I live in PA about 30 miles outside of Philly . Ever since they signed all of those free agents, Eagles fans have become even more unbearable.

Glazer disses about 40-50k faithful fans when he continues to harp on the lack of sellouts.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


TAMPA — Bryan Glazer looked around at the animated crowd at Raymond James Stadium and smiled, taking pride in the turnout for a Bucs open practice Saturday night that filled about half of the venue's lower bowl.

But the team's co-chairman didn't attempt to mask reality: filling RJS on game day remains a chore despite a team that has Glazer thinking big.

"We're hoping (for sellouts) this year," Glazer said. "Obviously, the economy here is still in bad shape in the Tampa Bay area. But we think as the team wins and we move forward and the plan continues, the fans will start coming back." Note to Glazer, thousands of us never left.....

Asked about the early signs from single-game ticket sales, which began Friday, Glazer said: "There's an increase, obviously, with the popularity of the two night games (Oct. 3 against the Colts and Dec. 17 against the Cowboys). But there's still a ways to go."

That seemed to be his way of saying blackouts remain likely one year after the Bucs were the only team in the NFL to see all of their home games blacked out on local television. Per NFL rules, games that do not sell out at least 72 hours before kickoff are not shown in the local market.

But Glazer, like the rest of the organization, continues to stress long-term objectives. He believes the team is on pace to accomplish its goals.

"We got the pieces we needed," he said. "We keep adding to it, and we have a young team that's going to be good for a long, long time."

Equally important is selling the fan base on the plan, which includes building through the draft and eschewing free agents who might be a quick fix.

"I think (fans) saw what happened at the end of last year," Glazer said, referring to the 10-6 season and playoff push that fell just short. "I think there are some people waiting to see what happens this year, but the plan continues to roll along. Each day, more and more people buy into it."

Many such people showed up Saturday.

"The turnout is fantastic," Gla­zer said. "Look at all these people on a Saturday night. We're having a good time. We're trying to make the team as accessible as we possibly can to all the people in the community, whether you can afford to come to a game or not. They're still a Buccaneer fan."

In other words, he looked at the crowd and thought it looked like mainly people who can't afford tickets.

LOL - exactly!  Yesteday, I posted that they looked unemployed. Guess Glazer saw the same thing. These peeps aren't going to spend money on an overpriced ticket when they can barely pay the electric bill.

as good as the bucs are.....the Glazers have to knock off 10 15 dollars off every ticket......tickets are way to high for the area pure and simple.....this year we have a good chance of only having about 3 blackouts.

The jaguars put there faith in blaine gabbert. The dolphins apperently have a head coach they dont want and a starting qb they dont want. Freeman will turn the bucs into floridas team.

The Dallas game is not sold out, but it should by the time the game is played.    That's a night game against a very popular team and a lot of Cowboy fans will be there.

There is no need to even ask.   Just go on ticketmaster and see for yourself what tickets are available.   It takes about 5 minutes to scan the games and see what seats are there.
I have seen no tickets available on that ticketmaster site - then two days later there are a few thousand available -

My guess is 4-5 Blackouts, but 0 blackouts for me as I'm a season ticket holder.

That's true.  There's no way to be sure how many tickets remain because the Glazers do strange things with those tickets.

I already dread sitting next to Cowboy fans - hopefully this time we can beat them. The last time might have been my most miserable time as a Buc fan.

BTW, if you watch the video, you'll see why we should have re-signed Cadillac.
