Raheem’s Job Security? Follow The Money

December 14th, 2009

Joe has long held the belief that as long as Chucky (and Bruce Almighty) are on the Glazer’s payroll, Raheem the Dream is safe.

However, the way the Bucs are stinking the CITS up, that may not be the case any longer. As one can expect, the great Phil Mushnick of the New York Post puts it all in perspective.

Imagine spending, oh, $40,000 on PSLs, plus ticket costs, to attend a game like yesterday’s Jets-Bucs.

Bingo. If Bucs fans, and the dwindling number of season ticket holders, are to the point that they are throwing their hands up while throwing up, that Bryan and Joel feel paying three coaches will be financially feasible more so than losing thousands of season ticket holders, Raheem the Dream is toast.

It’s as simple as dollars and cents.

    I, for one, will not renew my 4 lower-level ($99/seat/game) tickets if Raheem is back as the head coach.

    I want a proven commodity, somebody that knows how to rebuild a disaster into a contender. Bill Cowher is the only option, as far as I’m concerned. His philosophy of building through the draft should help the Glazer’s contain expenses.

    I’m sure the money the Bucs wasted on Antonio Bryant this season will be enough to cover a generous contract for Cowher.

    To all those people who say Morris will get a second year no matter what, its a matter of ticket sales — period. After a year like this, there is no way ticket sales will increase unless the Glazer make a drastic change.

    Morris is gone unless the Bucs win a couple more games — moral victories won’t get it done.

  3. Pete Says:

    Make changes that spur interest or lower ticket prices. Otherwise next year will probably be worse. Despite the pronouncements from D.C. that the recession is over I have not noticed it in my wallet yet.

    I don’t feel like this team will ever be good with Malcolm’s kids running it. They haven’t done anything that gives me any confidence in this team.

    Sure Raheem sucks balls and once he stepped in, everyone on the team got this thug-life attitude, lost all disipline, and we started playing street ball. Gruden and Kiffen were carrying a crappy team on their back.

    I don’t see the dedication from the Glazer Boys to fix what this team has become.

  5. Greg Says:

    Johnny D, I’m with you, my last game will be the Atlanta game, and I have no plans to renew my tickets unless the Glazers make a significant positive move at HC and GM. Firing or demoting Olson isn’t going to cut it.

    Dumping the Sky-box 2 years ago look like a very smart move now!

    I have been saying this, but I guess I’m just another stupid Conservative that doesn’t believe in spending what you don’t already have in the bank, and that your revenue stream is your first priority. Do whatever you have to do to keep the money rolling in. When the money stops you stop, just like a rocket with no fuel. Rocket Science 101.
