The Bucs Wouldn’t Sell Out A Super Bowl?November 13th, 2012
Now Joe’s a fan of wiseguy superinsider Mike Florio, the creator, curator and overall guru at ProFootballTalk.com, and a NFL analyst for NBC Sports, but Florio really went overboard with his latest jab at the Bucs and their fans.
In his latest and popular Power Rankings, Florio ranks the Bucs among the upper half of the NFL but can’t resist a shot team attendance.
14. Buccaneers: If this team played in a Super Bowl hosted at Raymond James Stadium, the game still may not sell out.
C’mon, Mike. Are we still going there?
First, the Bucs sold out two night games last year, so the premise isn’t even accurate. And Florio knows ticket sales are a leaguewide issue, hardly just a Tampa thing. Team Glazer not gobbling up tickets, like they used to in order to get games televised, is the only reason the Bucs’ attendance shortcomings stand out.
Joe’s had his fill of Tampa Bay bashing for this year.
