Thanks For The 5 Million

December 21st, 2010

Just a quick love note from Joe.

It’s official; will have more than 5 million pages viewed in 2010. Not too shabby for a website that doesn’t make readers click around to all kinds of different pages to get what they want.

Thanks to all for this great holiday gift.

Joe expects to double his traffic in 2011. And Joe is grateful he was able to deliver such an insane bargain to his advertisers. These great folks have paid at least 85 to 90 percent less than they’d have forked over on other media sites for the same traffic.

Joe is humbled thinking about how this site started with a laptop, a dream and barely a few nickels.

Thanks again.

    Congrats Joe. I don’t remember how I found this site(maybe 620wdae), but I’ve enjoyed it ever since.

  2. Playoffs? U talking Playoffs??? Says:

    You do a great job inventing angles that spark debate. Its great Joe. I’m glad you don’t cave into either side, optimist or pessimist, in your daily posts.

    Moreover, your daily dedication to pump out 5 plus posts a day is absolutely phenomenal. The activity you produce is what makes Joe Bucs Fan so addicting. You get it. You understated the information age as it is right now.

    Great job Joe, keep feeding your readers with all this Buc news.

    Thanks for the kinds words, all. Much appreciated!

    Without you guys, Joe would just drool over his Rachel Watson pictures all day.

  6. sunrisejeff Says:

    In the words of the great Gene Deckerhoff….”You go, Joe”

  9. Flagg Says:

    Joe is great; “The Man”, if you will.
    Joe should have his keyboard stapled to the Ring of Honor.
    Joe should be called upon by “The Dream” to draw up plays and analyze tape.
    Joe is more deserving of factual truisms than Chuck Norris.
    Joe has earned every single one of those page views.

    Keep it up, Joe. Keep it up.

    Joe knows where I stand! Great job and THANK YOU for filling my Buccaneer joneses and needs!

    It’s a good thing you waited until last week to unleash your Obama fury, because if all those who professed to be leaving and never to return, had done so earlier in the year, the 5 mil might not have been possible.

    Great work Mr. Joe.

    Without your cite to vent I may have committed many random acts of violence and then had to eat prison food with no NFL network.

    Live long and prosper

    Thanks for your support.

    You do Tampa Sports Fans a great service Joe, so I can “forgive” your favoritism to Pretty Brunettes. ( I like blondes)
    You Rock Joe!

  20. Pete 422 Says:

    Joe, I’m a web developer (also working on my MFA in the area) and you do this site right. Keeping it simple and direct to the point. Nice job and keep it going. As a Bucs fan (transplant at that) this site fills my daily Bucs fix.

  21. gitarlvr Says:

    This is not only the best Bucs fansite but the best NFL fansite I’ve seen period. I usually check out opposing teams fansites in the week leading up to a game looking for the local scuttlebutt on that team and even I haven’t found a fansite yet that is anywhere close to this one. Keep up the good work Joe.

  22. TAC Says:

    Congrats, and keep up the great work joebucsfan!

  23. Joe Says:


    This is not only the best Bucs fansite but the best NFL fansite I’ve seen period.

    That’s an incredibly kind thing to write. Thank you very, very much for your support and kind words.

  24. Joe Says:


    Joe thanks you from the bottom of his heart. This all wouldn’t be possible without loyal readers like you. Thank you.

  25. Bucc Fan In Hawkeye Country Says:

    Yeah no doubt. this is by far the most viewed site on my laptop and phone. I dont remember how I stumbled across either. But glad I did for sure. I happened to run into yet another Bucc fan here in Iowa at Footlocker. I was rockin my Bucc stockin hat n Freeman jersey (nother thanks to Joe ha) n he came up n started talkin bout the game. So of course I told him bout Joebucfan. Bucc Nation baby! :o)

  26. Buc You Says:

    Buc You Joe!


    Obviously this website is Exactly what any fan needs… nonstop daily news about the Bucs, regardless of the type, so long as its about the Bucs. You never let me down. Raheem should take a page out of your book on proper communication techniques, adequate pregame research and above all, humor. You are one funny Joe. Make me laugh daily.

  27. RustyRhino Says:

    Thanks Joe, Great site we all don’t always get along but we all are fans of the BUCS and this site.

  28. danbucsfan Says:

    Joe, You have earned a very high spot on my “Favorites” list! I appreciate the honest candor, keep up the good work!

  29. BigMAcAttack Says:

    I remember how I found this site, for the most part. I was on TBO talking back and forth with REF813 one night, Chucky was our coach and some yeahoo butts in and says “Hey guys I got this new great site, and you need to come check it out.” So I did, and I think the screen name he used on TBO was JoeBucsFan if I’m not mistaken. I may have been drunk, could have been drunk, no probably was drunk, yeah for sure I was drunk. So I went and checked out JBF, he had like 3 articles and a couple guys posting, talking, whatever. I think Mr Lucky was there, so I had to run my suck too, and it’s all been great ever since. It’s really nice to see someone succeed, during hard times, but it is all because of the hard work and dedication put into this site. You do have some very intelligent and knowledgeable people that post on the site. Even the idiots here are much better than the idiots on some of the other sites. Hey, it takes one to know one. haha

  30. scott Says:

    Your site kicks ass Joe! First and last everyday on my computer. I look forward to this next off season, coming a bit too early thanks to last Sundays debacle. We are getting there, however, and the next ten years should be good ones…Salute!

  31. Joe Says:

    Thanks again guys. You are all too kind.


    You have a spot near Joe’s heart. First, you are one of the original posts (along with Mr. Lucky as you noted).

    For those who are not aware of BigMAcAttack fame, he actually knew Rachel Watson when she was a little-known high school cheerleader in Sarasota. (Sigh).

  32. newman Says:


    dont remember how i found the site…but it is clearly the best bucs site out there.

    good luck

  33. Joe Says:

    Thanks newman!

  34. Mr. Lucky Says:


    Wow I know this site was worth a million bucs but five million hits?

    Just imagine how many hits you’d have with a weekly PoliticalPessimist in the mix?

    Think about it with the upcoming CBA….. I’m just saying.

    There are other sites that give Bucs news – BUT NONE BETTER.

    The Live chats, The hot pics, even the BLACKOUT TOURS!

    What more could a Buc fan wish for?

  35. BinhuBucsFan Says:

    Hey Joe Congrats, here some love of a brazlian Fan who could’nt live w/o your site, because we, brazilian dont got some god articules about football, and about the buccs, we got nothing, then your site is the ultimate source for every brazilian whom loves the buccs. Thx for the great job.
