Bucs Open In Kansas City

April 12th, 2011

Insert a big fat lockout asterisk, but the first glimpse of the Bucs’ preseason schedule is out.

The only fixed date is the opener in Kansas City on Aug. 12. And Bill Belicheat and the Patriots will soil the blacked out C.I.T.S. turf the following week.

Joe’s already drooling at the thought of the first preseason game only – and exactly – four months away.

2011 Preseason Schedule

August 1, (National TV-FOX)            at Kansas City                
(August 18-22)                                   NEW ENGLAND           
(August 25-28)                                   MIAMI                         
(September 1-2)                                 at Washington                       

Damn, this lockout thing better get resolved. Joe yearns for all the fun of training camp and preseason.

    DANG MAN!!!!!

    The first nationally televised game in a long time (not conting the 4:15 games last year as they were technically NOT nationally televised) and we are PROBABLY going to miss out. This lockout SUCKS!

    Always good to have the third preseason game at home for the starters longest dress rehearsal…

    Can’t wait to see what Josh can do without a broken thumb to start the season.

    @IMHO

    We will go back to playing the Jags and Texans next season, since we play the AFC South this season…

    Nationally televised game a sign of things to come next season……….

    I wouldn’t worry about it…I doubt the lockout will still be going on. I think there is a chance it will be over just before the draft, but if not, within a week or two after. The judge is pushing them into it.

    Joe,
    How would the CBA affect the schedule? I mean, what if they agree to do away with 2 preseason games and add to regular? Would it happen on this schedule or next year?

    If this year, we would lose that national game…

    Next year but the 18-game schedule is off the table.

    Joe,

    What does C.I.T.S. stand for?

    Amar:

    Google is your friend. :)

    China International Travel Service? what the….

  11. Macabee Says:

    Four (4) preseason games implies no 18 game schedule.

  12. Joe Says:

    Macabee:

    The 18-game schedule was pulled off the table by the owners. Even if the two sides agreed to one, it wouldn’t have started until next year.

  13. Macabee Says:

    Thanks, Joe. Oh Amar, forgot to mention that since you paid for the stadium, the proper name is Community Investment Tax Stadium.

    According to Mike & Mike, it’s back on the table. In fact, they were discussing the ramifications it would have on steroid use in the nfl today.

    Personally, I think the season should be 20 games at least…and I think the players complaining about two additional games is a sissy move.

    You can talk all you want about the additional waring on their bodies…but they would have 2 Preseason Games removed as well. Regardless, the two added games have nothing to do with it.

    The truth is it’s all about the money. The players don’t want to play 2 more games and NOT get a pay increase.

    They should be battling for lifetime health insurance…that would solve the health issues well enough. Instead, they fight against 2 games being added…when they will be added eventually anyway, as history has shown. They should not even have a say in the matter.

    Never have I seen employees dictate the business hours of a company.

    What you just did Pete is to publicaly hang a “kick me, I’m stupid” sign on yourself.
