Like I said many times before.....this is a football town. The Bucs have sold out a 70,000 seat stadium every game for the past decade. A new stadium for the Rays would go a long way....along with a better central location.Plus now the USF Bulls are doing well so that's taking attention away from the Rays.The Lightning is starting their pre-season next week I think. So that's going to pull even more fans away. I doubt the Rays even sell out their playoff games.
If the Rays hold on I would expect the Trop to be sold out for playoff games.
Bucs didn't sell out until they showed they had a team capable of winning consistently and they built a new stadium Ã‚Â The joke is you jag offs continuing to come here and criticize the fans and use false statements to back it up.Maybe the Yankee fan can explain why a great sports town like New York could only put 31,000 per game in the seats of Yankee Stadium during the '96 (I believe) World Series run. Ã‚Â Seeing as though joe has refused to address it.
Guess what? If the Bucs were playing a game late in the season, with playoff implications in ANY year, it would have sold out.Did the Yanks play a series in mid-September in 1996 with playoff implications? If so, you can bet thatthey had over 30,000 fans.You can point to attendance averages in Milwaukee, the Yankees and the Bucs all you want. But the fact is, the lack of sellouts against the Red Sox, at this time of the year and with the race so close, is PATHETIC.Kiss your team goodbye.
