Bucs-Crows Local Broadcast On Friday NightAugust 5th, 2013
It is extremely unlikely the Bucs will sell out the first preseason game Thursday against the Baltimore Crows (the 72-hour deadline to sell 85 percent of non-premium seats to prevent an NFL blackout is this evening). For all practical reasons, if you want to see the game live, there will be ample tickets available both at the box office and via the secondary market.
Barring the unforeseen, the Bucs’ local TV home of preseason football, WFLA-TV Channel 8, will broadcast the game on a tape-delayed basis Friday with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m., so Joe was told by a longtime trusted source at WFLA-TV.
The broadcast of the final home preseason game against the Redskins has not been determined, partially because of a very, very, very scant chance the game could sell out.
NFL Network will have tape-delayed broadcast of the Bucs-Crows game at 10 a.m. Saturday morning, and 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 13.
