Football is a business.

If a restaurant is empty and has no customers, do you blame the customers for not showing up or the restaurant for not serving what the customers want  (right price, right menu)?

football fills a void for many in some of these God-forsaken parts of the USA while places like Miami, Jax, STP-TPA, we have things other than football (fishing, boating, golf, tennis, beaches, biking, water skiing, jet-skiing, biking) - especially when the product on the field is weak.

Glazers made 15k tickets available for $35 and cut concessions by 50% They also have a great product on the field. What else exactly are they suppose to do?

It's rhetorical. No need to answer.

Rhetorical or not - Still have 10,000 seats at $100 that won't sell.....

and a restaurant that charges $20 for a hot dog won't sell their product.

Did we ever complain about this in the late 90's?

I have said it before..I do not care what the reason is...someday, the fanbase will rebuild.

This space for rent....*sigh* I trusted you coach.

If all the bandwagoner's are doing those activities one of their favorite "It's too hot at Buc's games to go" excuses has little validity. Yeah we live in a nice climate where you can pretty much do whatever you want all year round, but this fanbase is just pathetic. 10-6 team, exciting young players on both sides of the ball, 50% off concessions, 9/11 tribute, Lee Roy Selmon tribute, flexible payment plans for season tickets, and much more. But yet Tampa is the only team blacked out.

People would rather watch choppy, delayed internet feeds in their homes than support a young, exciting team. If that doesn't scream pathetic I don't know what does?

Business owner Glazers just ain't cutting it, are they?

It's their job to market and sell their products as business men.

They haven't earned customer loyalty for some reason. Was it because they tossed aside our greatest players? Was it because they robbed Buc fans with seat deposits by sending credit agencies to damage former fan's credit records when they couldn't continue to buy tickets? Was it because they fired a Super Bowl Champion head coach (one of the more respected head coaches in the NFL) for a head coach with absolutely no head coach experience at any level of play in organized football? Was it because they've jacked up ticket prices 33% in a market where the economy has hit people the hardest in the country?

OK Morgan.. what would you suggest the owners cut the prices to in order to sell out the game? How much does a hot dog need to cost? If i lived over there.. i would be season ticket holder for sure

Glazers have been the cheapest spending team in the nfl for past 7 years that might be why fans dont go they are like the tea party of the nfl
