Bucs No. 59

June 20th, 2011

Regular readers of Joe know he would rather swallow a six-pack of warm Old Style beer (which if you are fortunate enough to never have sampled this product, it is so miserable Joe has to think it is akin to deer urine) than give up his hard-earned cash to the vile four-letter network.

But Joe can cobble together a post here despite the bulk of information coming from behind a BSPN paywall.

BSPN recently conducted a survey of the best teams for fans in all the four major sports. The rankings were based on several factors including ownership, coaching, players, fan relations, affordability, stadium experience and “bang for the buck.”

Local sports fans have likely heard that the Lightning were ranked No. 2 overall in all sports, second only to the Packers.

The Bucs were ranked No. 59 overall and No. 11 in the NFL. The following is the overall rankings in each criteria used to determine the Bucs’ final score.

Title Track: 27
Ownership: 77
Coaching: 39
Players: 54
Fan Relations: 104
Affordability: 76
Stadium Experience: 40
Bang for the Buck: 57

The Bucs were ranked just below the Philadelphia Eagles and just ahead of the Seattle Seahawks.

As for as the area’s third team, the Rays, BSPN rated the Rays at No. 25 for the best team in America for fans.

    -_- Rays more enjoyable than the Bucs? My ass.

    The Bucs need to get back to basics and hit the pavement. In all the years I owned my own business; not once did anyone from the organization stop by or even call to find if there was any interest. That’s a huge problem because small business can and will support the Bucs if they would put in the effort.

    Ive gone to Rays games for $8. Im sure that factors in.

    The bucs games have become extra comfortable being that I rarely have anyone sitting next me – we are able to spread out and stretch out and move down due to the half-full stadium. Club level seats for $75 is tough to beat man.

    I should be more appreciative of the benefits of the Rah Rah regime. I guess that the fact that if it is too hot and I don’t feel like going I can’t get rid of my tickets and the games are blacked out outweighs the positives of the eroding fan interest.

    Also “smart” clearly isnt an important quality for this org anymore. The most important quality is cheap, to be followed by cheap, which falls barely ahead of inexpensive.

    LOL…the Rays. That’s why the team is considering moving away. BSPN really knows their stuff.

    I have serious doubts about that list…not just because of the Bucs…but other teams as well.

    Maybe Tampa should have built a DOME Stadium for the Buc’s ? A/C would have been nice, and so would the noise factor.
