As reported last week and confirmed tonight, the Buccaneers’ preseason game against the Miami Dolphins Saturday night will be blacked-out locally due to not selling out within 72 hours of kickoff in accordance with the NFL’s attendance policy.
WTSP Channel 10 will rebroadcast the game Saturday night at 11:30 p.m. and Sunday at 12 p.m.
While the team is in hopes of seeing some regular season home games sell out, the distinct possibility of the entire home schedule being unavailable for local live viewing remains.
The Buccaneers were the only team in the NFL who had their entire home schedule of games blacked-out during the 2010 season. Games thought to have the highest possibility of selling out are the home opener against the Detroit Lions September 11 and two nationally televised games [Indianapolis Colts on October 3 and Dallas Cowboys on December 17] later in the season.
