 TAMPA --

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are slashing season ticket prices for 35 percent of seats at Raymond James Stadium in 2013, the club said Tuesday.

For the fifth consecutive season, the Bucs have not raised ticket prices in any section.

"Nothing beats the live experience of Raymond James Stadium on Sundays," said Bucs co-chairman Ed Glazer. "Our No. 1 goal is to provide an affordable, enjoyable and safe game-day experience for the entire family."

Season passes will start as low as $30 per game for adults and $15 per game for children.

In addition, prices for some lower-level seats have been reduced to $65, down from $75. Lower-level seats in the northeast and southeast corners will cost $65, while lower-level seats in the northwest and southwest corners will be $75 apiece.

Sunday's matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, which featured a salute to Tampa Bay's 2002 championship team, was televised locally as the Bucs avoided a home blackout for the second time in seven games this season.

For information on season passes, call the ticket office at (866) 582-BUCS (2827) or go to www.buccaneers.com. Current season pass members will be contacted by the team in the coming weeks.

...in other news. Beer prices for next season have been raised to $12.00 per 6 ounces. Cold Hotdogs on stale bread however , will remain at $6.00 .

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

LOL just canceled my tickets for 2013 this a.m. Was under the monthly payment plan. Getting refund of what Ive paid into the Bucs coffer.

With your level of fan support, I wouldn't hold my breath.

We now return the OP to his normal level of lameness...

35% of prices were slashed, not prices were slashed 35% there fuzzy reading skills.

Too bad considering they raised prices 35% at the end of 2007.

You would need to cut prices 26% to be back at those same levels.  Or were we not focusing on the fuzzy math anymore?

If the Glazers cut ticket prices that much, it would be an ethical decision.   Especially considering the economy is now worse than it was at the end of 2007.

Actually, if you go back to 2008 prices to 2013 prices on section 339, they went from approximately $89 to I think $45 in 2013 which is around a 50% drop, and the seats I sit in now will be $75 in 2013, which is down from $99 two years ago. So while they may have screwed you a few years ago, Java, they slowly got back to the price point that seems fair.

From what I read on here, Morgan has moved seats a few times, so I don't think he really cares too much where he sits. In that case, the smart thing to do is to not renew until AFTER the preseason is over. Then you luck out getting all the season ticket holder discounts and not have to pay for the two scrimmage games.

How many games did you attend over the last four seasons? Me, 40 games. A lot of crappy football. Very few wins. Do you say that's not being supportive? I understand you attend only when you can smooch a free ticket off someone.

How's those rhinestone t-shirts coming?

Very good option - thought of possibly doing that.

Cardinals, Niners, Bills, Dolphins,  Panthers, Saints, Falcons, and NFC East TBD - some pretty good games in the 2013 schedule.

Eh, don't worry about the turdnuggets that think they one-up everyones fanhood.

I went to plenty of games in that time as well, even if I was reluctant to do so. However, this team is going in a better direction now. Maybe it's not the "right" direction, idk, but it's looking much better. From the games I attended this season, i can honestly say it was MUCH more exciting than last season, and the team is playing much harder.

I'm not sure right now is the time to drop your tickets. That should've been when Rah was hired, but hindsight is always 20/20.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

If the team starts ascending up the NFC South standings, hopefully, less games will be blacked out.

it's all business guys, no need to applaud the Glazers.

This is breaking it down more simplistically than it is, but it still applies to the ticket situation:
Selling 8 out of 10 tickets at $10 a pop, nets you $80.00
Selling 9 out of 10 tickets at $9 a pop nets you $81.00

In addition, you have more butts in the seat which means more parking revenues, more concession revenues, and more televised games locally.

I only say that as business men, they were foolish not to do this after last season's attendance numbers.

Once you have people hooked on the product you can increase prices SLIGHTLY and they would still be fine with it. Problems only come in when you jack them up drastically and put off some folks who would get fed up and cancel outright as Java has referred to back after the '07 season.

Agree - you'd think they'd have figured it out a season or two earlier. Good post.

Of course they do. They are also in the entertainment business. They put up some entertaining games this year but little showed up. They deserve some love from the fans for that hard work. They do it for themselves yes, but they also do it for the fans. Without us there is no team or NFL.

They get a lot of love from the fans. Ever listen to their radio shows. It's nauseating to hear grown men gush all over the players like they do on their weekly radio shows.   I understand there are a ton of fans waiting for them at the gates after games when they go to their cars - even Doug Martin requires security escorts.   Bucs had several near capacity crowds that showed up - and they laid an egg with losses when that happened.

Why the heck would Doug Martin need a security escort?
