Bryan Glazer Will Take Your Calls

September 2nd, 2011

Joe literally had to do a double-take when he heard the news. It is so stunning — yet true — all Bucs fans must tune in to listen, if not attempt to call.

For the few Bucs diehards who did not notice, the glorious college football season began last night, granted with a bunch of drek games. Tonight there is a decent game, potentially, and of course Saturday will be a full day-long slate of football with a pair of solid games scheduled for primetime.

It is truly the first Football Friday of this five-month long holiday season known as football season. Naturally, Joe’s good friend “The Big Dog,” Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620 has a dynamite Friday show lined up, as he will have every Friday through the Super Bowl, highlighted each week by an hour-long visit from the great Chris Landry at 5 p.m.

But today, Landry, and perhaps “The Big Dog” himself, will be overshadowed.

Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer will be a guest of “The Big Dog’s” at 4;30 p.m., and plans to field calls from Bucs fans.

Joe doesn’t know where this will end. The usually reserved Glazer rarely makes public appearances. But just in the past few months, he has spoken to the “The Big Dog” live on the air, the first Joe heard Glazer do such a thing. He also was part of an owners’ roundtable with Stu Sternberg and Jeff Vinik that aired live on WDAE. And last week he appeared live on the Buccaneers Radio Network and on the Bucs television broadcast of the Dolphins-Bucs game, seen via another of Joe’s treasured media partners, WTSP-TV Channel 10.

Now Glazer will take calls from fans. What next? Joe half-expects to learn that Glazer will buy a round of cocktails for patrons next Friday night at The Venue.

For those chained to a computer, Glazer’s appearance can be heard via WDAE’s audio stream on the station’s website.

    Reaching out to the fans…gotta respect it.

    Was it the Browns players years ago that went door-to-door inviting fans to the games?

    Maybe that’s what we need here. Just to liven things up a little again.

    Could you imagine Pete?

    (Me) Hello.
    (Penn) You need to be coming to games!
    (Me) Yes, sir.

    LOL, Chris!

    I believe ochocinco purchased tix and gave them to fans to avoid a blackout. Stating: If I have to play, you have to watch

  5. flmike Says:

    I like this new outlook by the Glazers’ it will be nice to have some vocal ownership. Make the case for the public to come watch your team.

  6. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Gotta respect that they’re doing everything they can to try and connect with fans. Of course guys like 2.2 will spin it into something sinister and conspiratorial.

    I wont be able to listen, but will you post a transcript later on?


  8. Joe Says:


    Joe will be on top of it, as you can expect.

    I kind of like the more public Glazers but I dont want to see too much of them ala Jerry Jones

  10. gbuc Says:

    PLEASE! Someone ask Mr. Glazer this:
    On the Season ticket packet I recieved this year, it states on the top right-hand corner of the fold out, the following:

    10% Off permanent concession stand Food, Beverage, and merchandise by showing your 2011 season pass card at all Buccaneers home games.

    Why then, when buying my beer at the last home game vs. Miami, was I told that the 10% discount did not apply to alchoholic drinks?

    Mr. Glazer, isn’t a beer a beverage? Just saying.

  11. Eric Says:

    I suggest not eating at least three hours before the broadcast.

  12. Joe Says:


    WDAE-AM has a toll free phone number from anywhere in the lower 48 for their shows. Surely you can call in.

  13. james from dunedin Says:

    cant wait to hear all the pre-screened softball questions

  14. bucswin Says:

    No questions. Probably better that way.

    The most interesting thing I heard is they will add some more $35 tickets to the Detroit game. But with 10,000+ seats still available, the blackout is all but set in stone.

    What will they be adding to the live, stadium experience? Lap dances at your seat by the Bucs cheerleaders? I think the games would sell out with that.
