    Hopefully, Tampa is in line to get one soon.

    I don’t see us getting another SB for many years; too many new indoor stadiums in big market areas.

    It’s just a matter of rewarding the cities with new stadiums. Nothing to do with market size. I expect if the Raiders go to Vegas and the Chargers somehow get a new stadium in San Diego, they’ll be rewarded too. It’s nothing against Tampa. Our Ray Jay sure is a bargain compared to the billions being spent nowadays.

    We will be rewarded with another one, or maybe we won’t. We were late by 3-4 years in these major improvements to RayJay, I think, whereas the teams we were competing with were SB-ready or close at the meetings with the exception of LA.

    Not sure if any of you readers or writers know the answer, but have we been awarded one since Malcolm Glazer’s stroke which he never recovered from at least as a representative of the Bucs at functions like these.

    Like him or not, he was not shy to call in markers and if necessary let his voice (and the banging of his shoe at one such Super Bowl city presentation) be heard loud and clear. He spearheaded the infamous Gruden in, Dungy out coaching “swap-aroo” despite mostly negative local and national opinion only to join Gruden at the Lombardi trophy hoisting less than a year later. We miss Mr. Glazer more than we realize, he was a champion in my eyes and will go down as the true turnaround of this franchise
