The past 2 seasons it's been like pulling teeth to get friends or family to go to a game with me. For years they would fight to go. Now times have changed. I love my Bucs but going to the game alone is getting old. It's just not fun anymore. I'm thinking this is going to be my last season as a season ticket holder and I'll just buy individual seats next year. Damn.

Not many people like Rah as a coach or the product he puts on the field

Last year in Tampa when I visited, I had to practically force my brothers to watch the Bucs game with me on TV.   They wanted us all to go to the beach for a BBQ, rather than a BBQ at home watching the Buc game by the pool.   They literally didn't give a crap about the game.   And they were absolute die hard fans for over 30 years until Raheem was hired.   This current team just doesn't interest people for some reason.   I wanted to watch because I rarely get to watch with people who really know football anymore.  I miss the excitement and passion of really getting into the game.   I will say that it was a nice Sunday, but the passion watching the Buc games is not there currently.   Might as well have listened to them and gone to the beach.

It's really sad. My wife used to go all the time. She's committed to the Colts game only. I missed the Lions game because of my daughters wedding in Boston. Tried to get friends to take them, no deal. Couldn't sell them on EBay or stub hub. Wound up giving them to a client that was a lions fan. I have only one other commitment and that's for the Falcons game. I thought after a 10-6 season it would change. I was wrong.

I think our fans don't like each other. Look at this board. People hating on Java. The Raheem Haters. The Gruden Haters. The Glazer haters. And the local media, with the exception of PR, has been hate filled for eight years (although admitedly less so lately).
It's like a family member you don't see for 20 years and then you're happy you haven't. Philly fans are drunk and stupid, but they love being drunk and stupid together.
There's no cohesion in Buc Nation.

One way to fix all that and it's called winning, do that consistently and everything will change immensely

I'm not so sure that winning will cure it this time.   When the stars are guys like Blount and Talib, people have a hard time supporting that even if they are successful.

People I know have said that it's too hot, too much of a hassle to be at RJS, no longer a novelty to see football in person - one family member relays a story about people pissing in the sinks at RJS. In general, it's just not a great scene being there anymore. Many of the people in the stands (including opponent fans) aren't people that I'd expect to pay money to be around.

I don't think Blount is a bad guy.  made a stupid decision once.  hasn't been any trouble as a Buc as far as we know.  but , yeah.  I don't like Talib and I don't like Tanard Jackson.  Their behavior has impacted the team negatively.  But the are not reasons for staying away from the team.  that's just stupid.

I can see your point on Talib, but Blount???

What about the 50 other guys on the team? Good luck finding any professional sports team that has nothing but the likes of Brooks, Dunn, Selmon, ect...on it.

Off the football field, tell me what Blount has done that keeps you from respecting him.

It's too hot! It's too much of a hassle!

You want to see a disgusting bathroom? Go to Buffalo. You'll also see fans who support their team and are there in sub-zero conditions.
