      Buccaneers among least-televised teams in the NFLBy Sander Philipse Oct 16, 2015tv1_zpsoxbl0qyn.pngLogan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports"FiveThirtyEight"  link  trudged through six seasons of broadcast data to figure out which teams are shown most often in which places. Surprise: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't shown a whole lot outside of Florida and the home markets of their division rivals. Still, though, they rank 29th overall in the list of most-televised teams.So yay, the Bucs are not last. Of course, their games are rarely shown outside of the South-Eastern United States, which is where the Bucs and all of their division rivals play.Part of the reason why the Bucs aren't shown much outside of that region is that they have been absolutely terrible for the past four years, and much of the past 13 years. But that can't explain everything: the Seattle Seahawks have arguably been the best team of the past five years, and they still only rank 23rd. The Dallas Cowboys haven't done much over that period and still rank number one.Fandom is weird and geographic. The Bucs need to start winning to get a bigger share of the market and NFL fan base, but they'll likely always be a relatively small-market team. That's fine by me. It won't stop them from winning games.link

      Where were we 1996 to 2003?If it were not for the Glazers (all of them) the Bucs would be dead last or maybe not even on this listThe Bucs were pathetic before the Glazers (for the most part) and are almost pathetic now, but that stretch in the middle ... wellOkay ... Bring on the "that was Malcom" and "ManU" nonsense. Anyone remember when the prevailing view on this board was that the Glazers were syphoning money from the Bucs to payoff ManU debt that would surely cause the Glazers to go bankrupt? Lol

      Glazer ignored the team starting in 2007 and ended their drought when Schiano was hired.  That is when the Bucs website was rejuvenated, when a new PR team was hired, new uniforms. This all came about the last three years.The Glazers ignored the franchise and are now back to investing again with aggressive PR campaigns.

      Maybe the Schiano hiring coincided with the Glazers financial recovery after that ManU boondoggle!Glad they made it. Read here they were broke! Firing security guards to save nickles!;-)

      You're clueless.  I had friends that worked for the team at OBP back then and there was definite penny pinching going on.  The Glazers main business was commercial property and during that time vacancy rates were near all-time highs.  They had a bunch wealth on paper and were CASH poor.  It is fact.  They had(at the time) almost no liquid assets.  They were leveraged to the hilt and at one point in danger of not making the ridiculously high loan repayments.PS Sam Wyche drafted Sapp, Lynch and Brooks.  Not the Glazers.

      Disagree about it because we are a small market team. How big is Green Bay?Put a winning team on the filed and the watchers will watch.Now if your name is the Redskins, Giants, Patriots, Cowboys people will watch. Now people are watching the Colts.& Ravens also.The Bucs have never been what anyone would call a winning franchise, more just  the opposite.JMO

      I wouldn’t put a whole lot of stock in the color-coded maps.  They need to be weighted toward population.  Bucs own the heavily populated I-4 corridor.  Broncos own a lot of pocket gopher holes…
