Training Camp Ticket Reservations Kept Quiet

July 16th, 2010

The Bucs opened reservations for free tickets to training camp’s opening day today at 10 a.m., via the free-to-join One Buc Club on the team’s website.

However, on the home page of there is no mention of tickets being available now, and to the best of Joe’s knowledge the Bucs haven’t sent out any news releases or drummed up excitement at all.

But you can get those tickets in hand right now. Joe’s got six printed off his trusty Epson . … (One for Joe, one for the other Joe, one for Rachel Watson, one for Roxanne Wilder, one for those two Latina twins who were kind enough to ask Joe to take their picture at last year’s training camp).

It’s an easy ordering process fulfilled via Ticketmaster.

Joe contacted the powers at One Buc Palace yesterday after the learning of today’s launch while viewing of an unrelated video on The Bucs didn’t deny tickets were going up for public consumption, but they surely didn’t seem interested in getting the word out.


One would think the marketing folks there would want to take off their underwear, put on their big boy pads and put their face on people when it comes to such an exciting event as the opening of training camp. (For those unaware, this seemingly sleazy reference is actually a Raheem The Dream quote).

Oh, well. 

Joe recommends you get your tickets now. Tickets for Day 2 of training camp will be released Saturday morning.

    I live in Texas and I usually watch the Bucs on Directv NFL sunday ticket every season. Will blackouts take the games away from Directv also or just for the Tampa area??

    @Louie The Hater!

    Better to see them practice then to see them manhandled by “grown man teams.”

    @buc_realist, Good point! It might be better to see them at their best during training camp. I need to re-think this.

    Season Ticket Holders get to buy them a day earlier than the general public, which makes sense. Those that financially support the team, even when they suck, and hopefully suck less this year, get first shot at tickets. Saturday tickets went on sale/free Thursday and Sunday tickets were available today. This may make the pool of tickets for the rest of the fans that think they suck even less. And if you really really think they suck you don’t have to go at all. Man, I sure hope they don’t suck this year. All them cigarettes I gave up, I could have smoked it up last year and had a great time without seats.

    Hey its Friday, is anybody out there Drunk? I gotta work tomorrow. Bummer.

    Joe. I live in Sarasota how far does one have to travel south to a sports bar to see them on TV. My health right now kind of prohibits sitting in the sun for 3 hours. Gave up my season tickets for now. I was thinking Fort Myers or Naples
