This season marked the first of 12 consecutive 10-loss seasons for Tampa Bay. The Bucs' struggles were due in large part to how Culverhouse ran the team. Under Culverhouse, the Bucs were one of the NFL's more profitable teams during the 1980s. However, this was largely because he kept the payroll among the lowest in the league, hampering their ability to sign quality players. Attendance also sagged; at one point the Buccaneers went parts of three whole seasons without having a home game televised locally.

It's a total shame watching the Glazer boys alienate a fanbase that took years to build. This franchise went from a joke to a perennial contender, and now back to a joke.. We went from having a lengthy season ticket waiting list to a point where I wish they would start blacking out our road games too... It's a crying shame..

The Glazer's banked on that run of 10 or so years of competitive football would wipe out 20+ years of the Culverhouse regime ...they were wrong.  They needed to keep showing an investment into the team, this area remembers all to well what cheap ownership looks like.
