Had to be close. Shame. This team is actually worth watching.

It just doesn't seem possible. It has to be the economy.

They are riding a win streak, and for the first time ever the Bucs have a good offense. The fairweather gods should be impressed...But they aren't...

...And WTH doesn't the Glazers buy up seats for a couple of games? Losing a lot of good media time in the main selling radius.

As long as the place gets filled by game time, that's what matters most. Hope there's a great walk up crowd. StubHub has 2500 tickets and lots of cheap ones between $35-$45. Plus, of course, the ones on TM.

I think the biggest downside to all of these blackouts is the fact that the Bucs probably won't be gaining any new future fans.  You can't become a fan of a team if you can't watch them on tv.

It's not about being on tv....it's about a home field advantage.

Thats true but you know if it wasn't blacked out majority of the fans would be for the other team

Certainly a mystery.  I think there are quite a few owners quietly buying up tickets.  This situation sends a statement.   The disgruntled out-of-town Buc fans disparaging a whole fan base for not being able to see the game on network tv makes for a good laugh.
