Down Goes 5 Million

December 10th, 2012

Joe would love $5 million. But Joe’s going to have to settle for cracking 5 million visits to this here website in 2012.

It’s not quite as big a deal as the fall of the Berlin Wall, but in a matter of moments will bust the 5 million mark for visits in this calendar year. This is new ground for Joe, and hopefully such an accomplishment will stimulate Rachel Watson to reconsider who is most important in her life.

Joe wants to issue a thank you to his readers, and the loyal companies you see promoted around here that put gas in Joe’s tank, beer in Joe’s belly, meat on Joe’s grill, and afford Joe the time to bring his best self every day.

Joe’s pleased to continue to grind away tirelessly, 24/7, in his role as the premier source of news and commentary for Bucs fans. If you ever encounter an off day here, rest assured Joe is either dead or Rachel finally knocked on his door.

    Congrats! You guys earned every one of them. Best Bucs news/entertainment source ever

  4. SteveK Says:

    Big ups to you, Joe!

    Congrats on the # of hits. I respect and admire your consistently strong effort in bringing around the clock Buccaneer information.

    Rock like you Dominick!

    Thank you Joe.

    Joe with all the fair weather fans that root for the bucs i wonder if foot traffic to your site will slip now that we are almost guaranteed not to get to the playoffs this year. that would be sad indeed. God bless all the hardcore bucs fans out there like me who bleed red and pewter and know what the true meaning of being a LOYAL bucs fan is all about. Thanks Joe for being the best website a true bucs fan can ask for and congrats. keep em coming.

    @Andrew – Traffic here is actually highest in the offseason when more fans are fishing around the Interwebs for news. It’s the same on national NFL sites. The hunger leading up to free agency and the draft is bigger than it is during the season. — Joe

    Congrats! And here’s to the next 5 mil. Cheers!

  9. BigMacAttack Says:

    This is wildly unfair and I think Joe should give half of his hits to less popular sites, those that only work regular hours, 5 days per week, in season. You guys are so greedy, taking all the Buc fans for your own personal gain.

    No really, 50 of us probably comprise 50% of those hits.

    Joe you hit a homer and how bout them Rays?

  10. Deminion Says:

    Best informative sure around thanks Joe

  11. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    I can safely say for the past two years there has not been a day that goes by that I do not read an article from here. Keep it up Joe!

  12. CharlesP Says:

    Congrats Joe ! You’re by far my favorite inside source of my beloved Bucs. Keep on the good work !!!

  13. MattHorse Says:

    Congratulations Joe.

    Best Bucs site going. You rekindled my love for the Bucs when I found this site two years ago!

  14. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Thanks for all your hard work, Joe’s. It is greatly appreciated at this household for sure 🙂 Here’s to an even better 2013!

  15. Joe Says:


    Thanks for all the kind words. Truly appreciated. If not for regulars like you and all of Joe many tens of thousands of weekly readers, this site wouldn’t exist.

  16. Pruritis Ani Says:

    Congrats Joe… How long has the site been up? I remember posting during the early days of the Raheem’s Reign of a Thousand Sorrows, but I don’t remember when the website actually started.

  17. JonBuc Says:

    Excellent work,Joe! If only our Bucs/Yucs were as consistent/successful.

  18. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    Well Joe…. I’m sure that if there were other sources that were as talented and well balanced as you, and shared the perspective of so many of us like you do,.. this site would not be so popular, but heck, have you looked at your competition? Seriously, I can hardly bring myself to read their drivel! (and if we have a loss.”forget about it!”) Thank you for this resource JOUBUCSFAN!!!!!! 🙂

    Pruritis Ani:

    Joe launched in August 2008, Chucky’s last season.

  20. Pruritis Ani Says:

    Just a correction here Pruritis, that’s 5 million this year, 2012 only. –Joe

  21. Miguel El Magnifico Says:

    I find the format on this site to be very easy to navigate and fan friendly. I just wish you could use this identical format for the JoeRaysFan site. That site sucks.

    Congratulations Joes!

    Now how about a good QB controversy to double those hits next year.

  22. Mark B Says:

    Congrats Joe, love the work!

  23. Kennedy Says:

    I’m here once or twice a week all year long. Always glad I came. Well done.

  24. Pruritis Ani Says:

    I stand corrected… :D.. Good for you, the site and the rest of us. Like everyone else, it’s a great place to come for the news. The only thing I can say I truly miss… The ever so lovely Carmela Garcia..

  25. Blake Says:

    Hey Joe,

    Just wanted to say thank you. I have attention deficit disorder(yes it’s real so I don’t want to hear any crap from commenters) and this is my favorite sports site. Many sites publish articles that are just way too long and it gets a little difficult for me to read. I like the straight to the point information you provide about my favorite team and the many different stories you put up. I hope you guys stay up and running for a long time.

  26. BigMacAttack Says:

    dude, where’s my Carmella???
