Has Kirwin said anything about letting go of an A- player like Ruud?
Btw, both Tim and Pat absolutely love Keith Millard and said he is gonna get the DL playing full speed up the field and play the run while rushing the QB and the sack total will skyrocket.

This is not an issue of people not wanting to support this team. Many of you are just unaware of the economic crisis the Tampa Bay area is in. People have lost jobs and not gotten them back. People have lost jobs and had to reenter the work force making 10 to 20 and sometimes even 30k less than what they used to make. You have bandwagoneers in every NFL city ours is no different I've seen them here before. There are a lot of reasons people aren't going to the games. Few of those reasons are from not wanting too. I've been through two downsizings in 4 years, thank God I have a job, but the pennies don't stretch as far these days when you have less of them to work with. I'm not going to blame the Glazers as I think they are doing what they can under the circumstances. The league needs to look at this old antiquated black out policy and make it somewhat recession friendly. I've suggested many times that the amount of fans needed for sellout purposes should somehow mirror or reflect the current rate of unemployment in the community. Think those people trying to pull themselves up from financial ruin who were good Buccaneers fans don't want to watch the game because they can't afford to go? And when the heck has a black out for a worthless preseason game been OK? Even you who are going and have been blessed financially to afford these tickets aren't happy about paying full price for a scrimmage game. This fan-base is not an embarrassment, they are freaking BROKE and are trying to take care of their families the best they can. Tampa Bay has one of the highest rates of unemployment in the state and in the country. Sucks that others can't recognize they've been blessed vs. telling everyone else what they should and shouldn't do with the limited funds they have to work with today vs a few years ago.
