Fair enough just don't say the teams moving when you have no idea which team will end up in LA. Saying the bucs will move to LA as a fact will make you look like a troll dude.

Of course it's not a fact that they are moving, but hopefully Tampa understands if you leave the door open as Baltimore did, as Cleveland did, then out team will walk out the door and that's reality.

But the funny thing is the door is not open, it's not cracked, it's not even being knocked on to anyone's knowledge.

State of the art stadium, paid for by the City of Tampa, sold out every game prior to 2010 Season opener. Has hosted 2 Super Bowls without a problem something other cities can't claim, I'm talking about you Dallas. Most teams that are "Rumored" to be moving to L.A. are teams with stadium issues (Vikings and Rams) or teams with constant attendance woes (Jaguars)

Do I think Tampa has one of the  worse fanbase's in all sports? Heck yeah, but we aren't as bad as Miami, Jacksonville, Oakland, San Diego, or Atlanta fans but our fanbase is in the lower tier of the NFL. But when the Bucs are winning consistently and it's cool to go to the games, the bandwagoners will be back saying "I've always been a Buc fan." We have a solid 40-45k fan base of die hards, the rest are just bandwagoners who will be back a board once the team is winning consistently.

Agree. It's worked in Tb can't say the same for LA.

That was true for many years.   But I don't think it's true anymore.   I think it's lower than that now due to Raheem.     If they make the playoffs, people will jump on the bandwagon, but I think this hire has estranged many former die hard fans.   Not because he's a bad guy, but because he wasn't ready.

Very true,
But the one thing that everyone seems to forget is that just because a team wants to move to LA it doesn't mean that LA wants that team to come. I live here in LA. They want star power and they love young. Think about it logically, if you are building an incredible stadium/amusement park do you want the Jags, no. The Vikings/no. the Dolphins/ hell no.

You want a young talented QB to market, you want a slick young coach to market that might not fit in down south, but in Los Angeles, with young hollywood, his personality fits like a glove.

I really don't think Tampa knows what a commodity that Josh Freeman/Raheem Morris are around the rest of the country. When Raheem said last year that he had the best team in the NFC, he became a star everywhere else but in Tampa.

Understand what you see and hear is tempered by where you are and that is the same with me here in LA. This city wants the Bucs, and is willing to pay a lot to get them. They may have to settle for another team but do not think for a second that they are not gonna make a push to get our team.  .

You know what would be fun?    If the Bucs moved to LA, and Tampa got a new expansion franchise with Gruden as head coach.

It doesn't matter how bad LA wants the Bucs(and I haven't heard that they do outside of your theory), you don't understand how and why teams move. Read up a bit on the economics of team relocation in major sports before making silly predictions.

With that said, this area IS pathetic. So many ignorant fans who pretend to care every so often but in reality couldn't possibly be more clueless about sports as a whole. Really, outside of Miami the Tampa Bay area is probably the crappiest sports market in the country.

LA will take any team it can get. It's not like they hand pick which team they want.

In a lousy economy and after an offseason in which the lockout disrupted ticket sales, the NFL will take that.[/size]

It's not the economy - it's the lousy fanbase, according to several posters here.

Move the team already.....give LA a third chance to support an NFL team.

I went to the casino over the weekend..... economy doesn't seem to be affecting their traffic. Truth is, this area sux!!!!

I'd rather have empty seats than some of the jerks that root for some of the other teams.
Eagles fans? Cro-magnons.
Jets fans? Inferiority complex playing in the Giants' shadow. Bitter group.
Steelers fans? Pompous. Packers fans? Self-righteous.
Want good fans? Ravens fans have always been classy when I attended games there. Giants fans, unless they're playing Dallas or Philly, are usually good too.

Who says I dont? But to answer your question for real, Its because im struggling to pay for college at the moment. Almost had to take the semester off because of a lack of funds
