Are the Buccaneers seriously messing with Barrett Ruud?

Here me out. And my list of things that my beloved Bucs have done to piss me off.

Allowing Kiffin to go.

Denying Simeon Rice his money

Messing with Ruud

Kissing Freeman's ass

Letting June go.


O.K, deep breath. You get it my point.

I'm sure there is more but do I need to go on? Probably not.

My point is, in the era of free agency when players and coaches hold no particular allegiance to any team and freely interchange like the pieces of a puzzle,

Why do fans hold their allegiances?

Are we fans of the Glaza family?

Are we fans of Raymond James Stadium?

Are we fans of Ronde Barber?

These are the only things that have remained the same for the Buccaneers.

I would like to see Morris and the Bucs have a good season, and for some reason I get a feeling that it is not going to be all bad for us.

And losing I can take, but screwing over the players that brought you success just isn't right. If the Buccaneers keep it up I may have to find another owner to route for.

Maybe Al Davis. He's fun.

Where can I comment?
