      It really was. Hope the fan base only gets more united from here. Tampa’s own 12th Man would be pretty sweet.

    Sounds and looks like you guys had a great time. Now if you can only get some inflatable sticks or some kind of symbol to get past TSA security to get into the game with. Sorry I missed all the fun.
    Looked almost as fun as the final kickoff against the Panthers when the sound system at Ray Jay started blasting “Jump Around” and not only did the fans get into it, but so did the players.
    Best time I had at Ray Jay in a long time.
    Winning that game for a sweep of the loathed Panthers and the showboat Cam Newton last year was the icing on the cake. I didn’t see many daps during that contest. Just Newton sulking on the sidelines after tossing three INT’s and eating a lot of dirt after getting sacked by Ayres and David.

    One more thing, loved the way Koetter got involved with the fans. I can’t remember ever having a coach like that for the Bucs, correct me if I’m wrong. Loved the way he was straightening his tie on his cutout. Good sense of humor.

    I hope Coach Koetter said this when he got the painting:

    “Never let anyone outside the family know what you’re thinking.”

    I love this site, but c’mon, it’s a little cheap that y’all aren’t giving credit to Joebucsfan.com and the Bus Uncensored podcast for creating the atmosphere today at practice. You shouldn’t talk all about how awesome the atmosphere was while pretending you don’t know where it came from. It doesn’t lessen this site’s quality to give credit where credit is due.

    Once again, I love this site, but maybe just show some love where love is earned.

    I am SO proud of what the #StickCarrier movement is bringing in enthusiasm. It’s about passionate Buccaneer fans who want to make the Ray Jay THE rocking place to be for home games, about the love we have for the Buccaneers. It IS about bringing ALL Buccaneer fans together in SUPPORT of our team.

    This was a big day, a day in which we showed everyone what it could be like, what it SHOULD be like on Sunday afternoons.

    Now, I’m an adult. I read and view what I want to read and view. That includes Pewter Report AND JBF. That includes many podcasts like Ira’s, Pewter Cast, Bucs Uncensored, Pewter Report’s and more. I do agree with those who feel a battle between sources is silly.

    But hell, today was special and I’ll close with that.

    I am SO excited for the season. So much talent on the field, unlike a few years ago.

    McCoy is going to be a monster this season as the Bucs finally have some talent around him.

  9. 9


    I’ve been to a lot of practices over the past 40+ years, even as an “undocumented observer”, and I must say, this was special. Big crowd and lots of excitement. Fans can sense that the culture has changed. Perhaps we can have an actual home field this season.
