KICKOFF CONDITIONS
The announced attendance for the Buccaneers vs. Chiefs game at Raymond James Stadium was 41,386 although the stadium was barely half full. The kickoff temperature was 86 degrees under sunny skies with 97-degree heat index.


This was interesting to me.  Isn't capacity around 65,857 ?

How could there possibly have been over 41,000 at that game?   I saw parts of it on the internet.   That stadium was over half empty.

41,386 "may" have been how many tickets were sold.   But no way was it the attendance.

SR pegged attendance at 30K, i think that was generous. 41K was seats sold ... not good. I have some pics from right before kickoff if I can figure out how to get them from my phone to this forum :)

It was a spoiler, as I was watching the stream - but I did enjoy your perspective. Thanks for taking the time.

To insert a photo you type a bracket:  [img ] then without spaces, insert your image URL, then close with   [/img ]

Ok, probably a terrible way to share pix, but hey if you cant trust: the few, the proud, the last Buc fans, who can you trust ?

Not sure if you can click or have to copy and paste but follow below for some shots of the crowd right before kickoff, judge for yourself - 41K, 30K, less ?

Almost no scalping activity either, didnt stop to see what they were asking but only saw 2-3 on the way in and they were very quiet.

Absolutely pathetic attendance.  I can remember going to USF games 10 years ago that had more people in the stands....

That is pretty sparse but BIS doesn't matter much. That they "announced" 41k says that there are about 41k season ticket holders so you can figure out how many individual game seats must sells each week to get a sellout.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.
