Did you know the San Diego chargers get blacked out all the time?

Just saying that everyone says the Bucs cant sell out any games because of the economy. The Bucs were the only team in the NFL that couldnt sell out a single home game last year.

There used to be a time when the Bucs tickets would sell out in an hour. Those days are gone!

Either people dont believe in this team anymore and think last year was a fluke or the Glazers have one really, really bad public relations problem on their hands. The economy is not a valid excuse.

Having an offense that moves the ball does wonders for ticket sales.  Go figure.

So you are using this article as a venue to push your agenda about not believing in the team?

Why not just come out and say that. You're not being cute or clever.

And you think if Jon Kitna was throwing to Mike Furrey, the tickets would've sold as quickly?

They've put together a pretty good team - they've had numerous number one draft choices haven't they? - That city has been waiting for decades for a team that even competes in they playoffs - pretty dismal franchise.

Our offense moved the ball pretty well last year. Why didn't our MNF game sell out already?

We have a franchise QB, a franchise WR, potentially a franchise RB...  a three-some some say the Bucs never had all at once in their history.... and we had a 10-6 record last year.....Yet we still can't sell out a MNF game. Check ticketmaster...there are TONS of tix avail for that game.

Im not talking about the team here! Im talking about the fans. It's not the economy. You can find Bucs tickets on Stubhub for as cheap as $10.

So what's the problem? What's missing? What do the fans want to get them to the game?
