Quit Blaming Team Glazer!August 15th, 2011
The more Joe continues to grow — beyond his dreams, actually — the more friends he has.
One Friend of JoeBucsFan.com is NFL.com blogger Jenna Laine. Late last week, Jenna put fingers to keyboard and typed that Bucs fans who still somehow, someway still blame Team Glazer for not going to Bucs games, that they are simply living in La-La Land.
Jenna did some research and determined that compared to many other NFL cities, the Bucs are a good buy if not cheaper than most.
“We’re trying to make the team as accessible as we possibly can to all the people in the community,” said team co-chairman Bryan Glazer at Saturday’s second annual night practice, which included free parking, $1 concessions and a fireworks display.
That means offering free events, like Saturday’s, which may be the only chance some Bucs fans get to see the team in action this year, along with some of the most affordable ticket prices in the league, with some sections starting as low as $35.
According to data from SeatGeek, a website that tracks secondary market prices for all 32 NFL teams, the average cost of Bucs tickets is $80.10 -– $33.07 lower than the league average, $113.17.
Jenna points out that figure ranks 21st in the NFL, meaning 20 other NFL teams had a higher average price.
If some Bucs fans are whining that they are being raped for tickets, quite simply, they are whining just to whine.
