Bucs No. 59June 20th, 2011
Regular readers of Joe know he would rather swallow a six-pack of warm Old Style beer (which if you are fortunate enough to never have sampled this product, it is so miserable Joe has to think it is akin to deer urine) than give up his hard-earned cash to the vile four-letter network.
But Joe can cobble together a post here despite the bulk of information coming from behind a BSPN paywall.
BSPN recently conducted a survey of the best teams for fans in all the four major sports. The rankings were based on several factors including ownership, coaching, players, fan relations, affordability, stadium experience and “bang for the buck.”
Local sports fans have likely heard that the Lightning were ranked No. 2 overall in all sports, second only to the Packers.
The Bucs were ranked No. 59 overall and No. 11 in the NFL. The following is the overall rankings in each criteria used to determine the Bucs’ final score.
Title Track: 27
Fan Relations: 104
Stadium Experience: 40
Bang for the Buck: 57
The Bucs were ranked just below the Philadelphia Eagles and just ahead of the Seattle Seahawks.
As for as the area’s third team, the Rays, BSPN rated the Rays at No. 25 for the best team in America for fans.
