    Personally, I can’t wait to park myself at a sports bar at noon and spend the day there with pitchers of beer and my iphone

    Them large amount of people saying “Yes. I won’t have to use one of those pirate Internet feeds” and “Yes. I’ll switch from radio to TV” will make far more money for the team/league than the few saying “Yes. I’ll go to fewer Bucs games”. Especially since those that don’t go to the games will in turn watch the games on TV bringing in more money for the league/team. This is a winning situation for all parties involved.

    Good job Glazers!

  3. Have A Nice Day Says:

    I meant “far more money for the team/league than *any potential loss accrued by those* saying “Yes. I’ll go to fewer Bucs games”.


    At least some of Us are being honest.

    My selection:

    “I’m going to watch a helluva lot more games this year just because there won’t be anymore loafing.”

  6. Eric Says:

    The good news is we can watch all the games.

    The bad news is we can watch all the games……

  7. Lion Says:

    The percentage of people that buy tickets just because a game is blacked out is likely very small to begin with (at least here in Tampa). Thus, the black out rule doesn’t make much economic sense to begin with. I am thrilled that the Glazers took advantage of the new rule. Has any other team done so, yet?

    The only reason I’m happy about this new rule is it’ll give my 92 year old mother the ability to once again watch her favorite team. She hasn’t been able to go with us to the games for the last 10 years or so, and it never bothered her until they started blacking out our home games. Our crew is @ Raymond James every home game regardless.

    This is my 2nd year of season tix. My’tail is goin to the games…..I feel left out joeB…sad face

  10. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Still stuck up here in Southern Illinois, will be watching at my bar.

  11. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Some Bars and friends around here have satellite boxes obtained from cities outside the blackout area.
    The Bucs were only hurting themselves with the blackouts.

  12. Aldo Says:

    well, this will not change cuz i live outside USA

  13. BamBamBuc Says:

    Things wouldn’t change for me regardless. I live in Colorado and pay my DirecTV subscription for the Sunday Ticket package. However, if I lived in Tampa, my situation also wouldn’t have changed because I’d have season tickets every year. I’m a fan, and when the team is good I wanna watch them play good, when they’re bad I wanna watch them play bad. I don’t care, I’m gonna go to the games. Of course, I’d rather have them be good, but am realistic enough to know it’s not possible to be good every year, or every game.

  14. Alex Says:

    Why not the option of going to more games. I will feel better supporting the Bucs because of the Glazer’s committment to the Tampa Bay community.
