Tampa Bay Buccaneers Might Free Their Fans and Blackout Games

You're all free to go.

The would be music to the ears of those held behind bars.

Now it's perhaps the message those wily Glazers will send to Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans this fall.

You're all free to go do something else besides watch the Bucs on television.

You'd figure this has been coming for a while now.

If you tuned in and watched the games during last year's stellar 3-13 season, you saw a lot of empty seats around Raymond James Stadium.

This year you might not be able to do that, according to the word out of the owners' meetings in Orlando and from the hallways of One Buccaneer Placemat that localย television blackouts may be coming this season.

Surely it will be hard to find other activities during those beautiful fall afternoons in Tampa.

Sure, you can always fork out your money and take part in the early-season September-October heatfest in Raymond James, but you surely won't want to miss those October-November games when the Bucs make their run to the playoffs.


Did someone say "Playoffs?"

Just got an email from One Buccaneer Placemat that says you can pick up season tickets for as little as $35 each game, around $350 for the season.

Let's see, $350 buys a lot of golf and a lot of cold beverages at the beach.

And a nice radio to boot!
