    Great. Not only do the Bucs raise the ticket prices on these practice games, we get stuck with the fourth one where hardly any starter sets foot on the field.
    Hey, thanks so much for hosing the fans Glazer boys.

      The Bucs and 15 other teams get “stuck” hosting the 4th preseason game……and their season pass holding fans have to pay for it. It’s not just your oft targeted Glazer boys. To make it even worse, for those of us with jobs, it’s probably on a Thursday night. But until the league changes things, as Ronde would say, “it is what it is.” Maybe you can swing by and buy me that Diet Coke. Probably won’t be too focused on the meaningless exhibition on the field and there will be plenty of empty seats.

      If it’s like it used to be, preseason game match-ups are worked out by the teams.
