Crows At Bucs, Open Thread

August 8th, 2013

bucs cheerleader 0809OK, so there’s actually an inactive list for the Bucs in tonight’s game and Michael Smith’s name is no where to be found on said list. Ah, the preseason.

No Darrelle Revis, no Davin Joseph, no Carl Nicks, among others.

For Bucs fans who may be (ahem) watching the game through illegal means or listening to the game on WDAE-AM 620, feel free to discuss the game here.

As always you are welcome to e-mail links of illegally streamed video of the game amongst yourselves. But you may not post the links or Joe will have to bounce you for good.

Enjoy the game.

    Amongst the very few games blacked out on NFL Preseason Live. Didn’t know black-outs applied to NFL packages. Just canceled my subscription. When i told the sales associate the Bucs game was blacked out, he said O’ are you in Florida(yes)? I’m using my computer so I wonder if they base my IP off of what games are blacked-out or is it my subscription information(address)? Proxy server may come in handy?

  10. jiom cruger Says:

  11. PRBucFan Says:

    Bet wishes to our guys health.

  12. Jason A Says:

    Game time!! Go Bucs (from Ohio)

  13. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Ronde seems a little nervous…at least at first. Sure feels good seeing him.

    Finally…a form of football is here!

  14. SteveK Says:

    Doug going nowhere. Come on Freeman!

  15. PRBucFan Says:

    No call on that face mask?

  16. SteveK Says:

    Roll out right, Freeman throws high and a near pick.

  17. Tammer Bartmess Says:

    Let’s go BUCCS! Listening on here in Iowa!!!

  18. SteveK Says:

    SACK Chris Canty up the gut, Freeman didnt get rid of it!

  19. PRBucFan Says:


  20. Couch Fan Says:

    3 and out. Come on Josh!

  21. SteveK Says:

    3 and out, new Ravens D looks good. Let’s see what Flacco has got. Watson starting at SLB.

  22. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    You guys don’t really expect a win today do you?

  23. SteveK Says:

    #27 for the Bucs with the last 2 tackles. GMC was in the backfield too.

  24. the_buc_realist Says:

    guy was wide open in the middle on the sac, come on jfro!!!!

  25. SteveK Says:

    Blitz LvD52 SACK 11 yard loss.

  26. Illuminati Says:

    David with the sack.

  27. Couch Fan Says:

    LVD with the sack!

  28. Drew H Says:

    G** Damn LD54 is fast. Nice sack and pressure

  29. David Colwell Says:

    david lookin solid already

  30. SteveK Says:

    Danny Gorrer PICK!

    Lol with a little strut on the side line too, a former Raven with the pick. Pretty damn good D, Flacco forced a 3rd and 15.

  31. Drew H Says:

    Danny Gorrer, yes sir!

  32. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Can any of my fellow Buc fans help this long time Bucs fan out???
    …..Thanks in advance…
    This IS the year guys…GO BUCS!!

  33. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Can any of my fellow Buc fans help this long time Bucs fan out???
    …..Thanks in advance…
    This IS the year guys…GO BUCS!!

  34. Illuminati Says:

    Gorrer with pick.

  35. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Wow. A pick?

  36. David Colwell Says:

    defense is back in tampa!

  37. Couch Fan Says:

    Good stand. Nice pick. I wasnt seeing much pressure though from the D-Line.

  38. SteveK Says:

    Put Freeman out there with the 1’s for another drive. If he gets a 3 and out (with atleast 2 passes) then leave the 1’s in next time and throw out the Roook!

  39. PRBucFan Says:

    What kind of question is that?

    Why the hell wouldn’t we expect a win? Lol Silly question.

    Does that mean I’m going to upset if we lose or that the preseason wins and losses matter?

    No, but anytime my Bucs take the field I expect them to compete to win.

  40. Drew H Says:

    Holy shit, a first possession that didn’t end in points for the other team. Defensive….presence?

  41. SteveK Says:


    Not much D Line pressure, aside from GMC.

    Bennett was let go again, why?

  42. Mr Lucky Says:

    Nice INT Gorrer

  43. richardtyson Says:

    Deckerhoff is on.

  44. Mr Lucky Says:

    Leonard looked like a mini-Alstott on that last play

  45. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    PRBucFan Says: August 8th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    “What kind of question is that?

    Why the hell wouldn’t we expect a win? Lol Silly question.”

    Because they are the SB Champs and half our starters are inactive.

  46. Mr Lucky Says:

    OMG Freeman completes a pass over the middle!

  47. SteveK Says:

    1 yard run by Doug, 2 yard screen to Leornard. 3rd and 7…. Freeman made two reads, pumped, and threw a 20 yard gain to #85 Ogeltree. Good pass protection.

  48. Bucnjim Says:

    Stick that up you A$$ SteveK!!!!

  49. Couch Fan Says:

    Good pass Free.

  50. SteveK Says:

    Leonard running hard for 12 yards, I like his anger with the football in his hands.

  51. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    That was a laser pwss to Ogletree. Go Leneord!

  52. Drew H Says:

    Brian Leonard, I like the carry

  53. Drew H Says:

    Weird….WR screens…not a fan.

  54. Mr Lucky Says:

    RED ZONE to VJ!

  55. SteveK Says:

    Freeman just threw a dart on the outside for 20 yards to Jackson. Great coverage, better throw, nice friggin catch on the side lines by v-jax. Harbaugh challenges…

  56. Raphael Says:

    Lavonte a sack and gorrer a pick … DEFENSE

  57. PRBucFan Says:

    Lol that’s nonsense, this is a new year and we both have new teams.

    I expect our team to always compete to win. It’s that simple for me.

  58. Drew H Says:

    VJax, that’s all day and all season. LETS GO!

  59. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    He didn’t look in to me…but bad angle.

  60. Joe Says:

    BEAUTIFUL throw by Freeman on that sideline pass to VJax. Placed it so CB had no chance at a play.

  61. BucsFan007 Says:

    please email me links at

  62. PRBucFan Says:

    And both teams will have there share of inactive or players that will only play a couple snaps. It’s not only us lol.

  63. David Colwell Says:

    freaking harbaugh.

  64. Mr Lucky Says:

    Good call on the VJ pass, it sucks but it WAS the correct call. Now lets see Freeman convert

  65. PRBucFan Says:

    Will do buddy. Sending now

  66. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @ PRBucFan

    I do too…in regular season. In post season.

    But in preseason I just want to get thru without injuries.

    I was right…Jackson not in.

  67. SteveK Says:

    Leonard with the tough yard and second effort.

  68. PRBucFan Says:

    BucsFan007 sent it to you broski 🙂

  69. Mr Lucky Says:

    There goes roller coaster Josh again. A complete pass and the Bucs would have had the first.

  70. SteveK Says:

    Freeman with a HUGE overthrow to MW19, and a check down to 85 4 yards short of the 1st.

  71. Illuminati Says:

    More miscommunication between Free and his reveivers

  72. Couch Fan Says:

    more miscommunication… hope they get it all out in the pre-season

  73. PRBucFan Says:

    Oh my goodness lol what was that hahaha

  74. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    If Leneord doesn’t fumble and keeps showing this level of effort he might win me over.

    Ogletree getti g all those drops in practice seems to have fixed itself.

  75. Buc Fan #238 Says:

    NFL network showed a bunch of Bucs highlights!

    Freeman 3 and out with a sack on drive 1.

    David sacks Flacco.
    Gorrer intercepts Flacco.

    Freeman finally converts on 3rd down, but throws it behind the WR. His throw was so lazy.


  76. Couch Fan Says:

    Banks with a nice hit

  77. CocoaBchBuc Says:

    Would greatly appreciate a link

  78. Buc Fan #238 Says:

    Dude the game is essentially on NFL Network

  79. Buc Fan #238 Says:

    Defense looks GREAT!!!!!

  80. Couch Fan Says:

    D-Lineman need to get there hands up last 2 passes looked like both went right over the D-lines helmet

  81. Couch Fan Says:

    Noooo come on Gorrer! No Injuries damnit!

  82. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Just a knee to Gorrer’s nuts…no biggie

  83. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    And that is exactly what I meant. Injuries 🙁

  84. Drew H Says:

    nuts or wind knocked out. either way, he’s fine.

  85. Raphael Says:

    Gorrer having a good game

  86. Illuminati Says:

    Glennon time.

  87. celly Says:

    if someone could email the link to

    darkdemise @ hotmail . com

    i would GREATLY appreciate it.

  88. Raphael Says:

    Nice play Glendon

  89. Couch Fan Says:


  90. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Oh. My. God.

  91. Drew H Says:

    And with the first pass, the QB controversy begins.

  92. Mr Lucky Says:

    Ok now it’s official time to replace Freeman with Glennon

  93. PRBucFan Says:

    Sent it to you Cocoa

    And why on earth was Crabtree looking back instead of just running hahaha.
    Nice play, it was just funny to watch lol

  94. the_buc_realist Says:

    should be intresting on the board tomorrow

  95. So. Ill. Bucs Says:

    Well that’s not going to start any arguments.

  96. SteveK Says:

    LOL Big Bird with some escapability, one pass, 61 yards.

    Go Bucs!

  97. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Nice play Glennon

  98. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I can’t believe he made that pass. Usually hat kind of play results in a pick for a rookie.

    Good play.

  99. Mr Lucky Says:

    Gotta say that Crabtree is SLOW!

  100. chris Says:

    HE may not be a burner, but pocket presence is what counts. Not mobility outside the pocket. Nice play Glennon.

  101. Buc Fan #238 Says:


  102. PRBucFan Says:

    Sent it to you Celly

  103. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Ah…that explains it. Ravens put in their backups.

  104. CocoaBchBuc Says:

    Thanks to all who sent

  105. SteveK Says:

    And a rookie fumble.

  106. Buc Fan #238 Says:

    NFL Network is real nice with the coverage.

  107. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


  108. Couch Fan Says:

    THat arm is going forward!

  109. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    That’s a pass

  110. benlynch Says:

    Glennon looks like he knows how to command an offense. I like it!

  111. PRBucFan Says:

    No problem.

  112. brian Says:

    Please email me links at

  113. Walter Says:

    Another FG

  114. srq941bucsfan Says:

    if someone will be so kind to help me with watching

  115. Couch Fan Says:

    Not disappointed at all in his first drive of his career. Offense and defense both looking pretty good so far.

  116. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Not impressed with Glennon so far. I’ll take Freeman all day over what I’ve seen.

  117. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    So…all that pass got us was 3 points?

    Still, not bad for his first series in the NFL. He may just make an okay backup.

  118. Couch Fan Says:

    Uh oh. Thats probably the last time Owusu gets to punt return. Lol Dam.

  119. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    The ravens backup looks really good…if only his WRs would catch the passes.

  120. Illuminati Says:

    Owusu with the muff.

  121. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Couch…I’m rooting for Eric Page to win the return job. I have a good feeling about him.

  122. Buc Fan #238 Says:

    Me too please…

  123. Couch Fan Says:

    I want to see more of them both. Plus it looks to be pouring there. We might see a lot more running.

  124. Buc Fan #238 Says:

    Get Glennon “The Future” out of there already.

  125. Brian Says:

    Someone please link me:

  126. David Colwell Says:

    ravens d is just as dirty as i remember.

  127. PRBucFan Says:

    I already did lol

  128. PRBucFan Says:

    All three of the above link requesters should have gotten an email from me.

  129. Illuminati Says:


  130. Couch Fan Says:

    Another nice drive for the rook, Leonard is looking good to.

  131. Mr Lucky Says:

    Leonard is looking good, Hillis is thinking, “shit there goes my chance at the NFL”

  132. FamuBucaru Says:

    Can someone assist this bucfan 4 life with an email? PLEASE!!!!!!
    GO BUCS!!

  133. Drew H Says:

    My 2cents…

    Glennon looks like a serviceable backup. You can feel the tempo drop low when he enters the game…he has a lot of poise for a rookie. He does look calm and collected, he had a few opportunities to scramble out of pressure, but opted for rushing his check downs…i like the way the ball comes out of his hands. For his debut, he looks a bit rattled to date. Let’s see how he performs later on…

    This shanty of a pass block isn’t helping either.

    Mike James, you will take Michael Smith’s roster spot…needs development for sure…pass blocking is quack.

    Absolutely love the 2nd and 3rd efforts of Brian Leonard. Very good serviceable backup…will make it extremely hard for Peyton Hillis to make the team.

    Means looks fast coming off the edge, needs to develop a better second move.

    Banks is looking great so far, but damn he is skinny. Reminds me of myself (mentally) always looking for contact but physically not best suited for it….I’m getting at their were many injuries…let’s hope he drinks a lot of milk.

    I guess Tom Crabtree can catch.

    LD54 is going to be a monster

    Dimke is locking up a job right now

    more to’s early but it’s FOOTBALL SEASON! LET”S GO BUCS! WOOOO

  134. Couch Fan Says:

    Lol nice job Dimke. I dont really care he got penalized.

  135. David Colwell Says:

    i dont give a s%$&t about the flag way to make the play kicker.

  136. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I wish the Ravens were still playing starters. I’d like to see what Glennon can do agwinst them. He’s doing alright…against backups.

    Owusu is having a bad game.

  137. Couch Fan Says:

    Glennon looks to have pretty good pocket awareness. Given its only pre-season but he moves around well

  138. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Overthrown! Always overthrown!!!! 😉

  139. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Wow…listen to the crowd! They are LOUD!!!!!!

  140. Tubble07 Says:

    Can one of my fellow buc warriors shoot me a link please…thanks in advance!!

  141. Splengo Says:

    Looks like Bowers is the new Blount! He is the only starter still in the game. I think Schiano is riding him!

  142. cmurda Says:

    Quick notes from the game:

    1) Owusu is having a rough game but I like his route running.

    2) Glennon looked poise and nice decision making

    3) DL – What DL? Wheres the pressure?

    4) Game 1. This is to be expected

  143. Illuminati Says:

    Holy crap.

  144. cmurda Says:

    One more note. Special Teams is awful. Some things never change. A punt block. Really?

  145. David Colwell Says:

    thats bull he hit the kicker!!!

  146. Couch Fan Says:

    Wow wtf come on guys. Halfs not over yet. Sheesh!

  147. Couch Fan Says:

    Lol Glennon is just launching them out there for Owusu.

  148. cmurda Says:

    Uh oh. Schiano is pissed. I wouldn’t want to be stuck in that locker room.

  149. Lynch Says:

    Just saw Hillis coming off the field with special teams. I wouldnt count him out just yet. #33

  150. Drew Says:

    Thank God it’s preseason.

  151. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Splengo Says
    “Looks like Bowers is the new Blount! He is the only starter still in the game. I think Schiano is riding him!”

    It’s because Schiano wants him to be an all down, full game DE. He’s in for stamina reasons.

    On a side note, Owusu looked like he injured his foot on the last play of the half. We may noot see him anymore tonight.

  152. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Glennon is not the savior. As if we needed proof.

  153. Couch Fan Says:

    Lol, who said he was? Sounds like you are trying to convince yourself of that.

  154. cmurda Says:

    Glennon is a project backup. Most of us know that. I don’t even know where this QB controversy comes from. If Freeman melts down, then we may have a QB controversy. I like what I see however. Definitely a few rookie mistakes but also good decision making and he towers above the DL hands.

  155. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Now Tyrod Taylor looks like a dangerous backup QB. He’s tearing up our second & third string D.

  156. Couch Fan Says:

    Come on D, catch the freakin ball.

  157. BucsfaninChina Says:

    Spence a lot quicker than advertised.

  158. Lynch Says:

    We have no D Line. Might as well put everyone in coverage.

  159. Illuminati Says:


  160. cmurda Says:

    Ewww. These guys ain’t cutting the mustard. That was one of the softest TD throws I have ever seen. If even one of the DB’s turns around, thats a pick.

  161. Lynch Says:

    Hillis knocking heads!

  162. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    3rd receiver – Ogletree

    2nd back – Leonard

  163. Buc Fan #238 Says:

    We have a great backfield.

    Martin, Leonard, Hillis, James… watch out.

  164. CocoaBchBuc Says:

    The 4 letter network reporting Gorrer w/ a groin injury

  165. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Hillis is impressive. This guy could be a huge upgrade to our RB depth. Definitely liking what I see from him. He gets yards and he makes the defenders pay.

  166. Illuminati Says:

    Glennon throws his first pick.

  167. Lynch Says:

    Except he just got hurt!!!

  168. Couch Fan Says:

    And there is his first mistake lol

  169. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Yeah the defender hit Hillis right in the knee. Actually kinda reminds me of the hit that put Benn out of commission two years ago. Hope he’s alright.

  170. AJ Says:

    Hillis fumbles! Shocking!

  171. Drew Says:

    I question the Depth.

  172. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Underwhelmed by both of the lines.

  173. Bobby Says:

    Sloppy game by backups.

  174. Jason A Says:

    Wow ain’t lookin good on this night, thank God it’s preseason

  175. Couch Fan Says:

    Nice pass, move them chains.

  176. Couch Fan Says:

    3rd and 1. Come on Guys pick this up!

  177. Drew Says:

    Hate to say it, but the Buc offense is extremely boring.

  178. Illuminati Says:

    At least our kicker looks good.

  179. Drew Says:

    What is the overall consensus of the 1s against the 1s?

  180. Splengo Says:

    The ghost of Myron “Candyman” Lewis is exacting his revenge tonight! Never should have called his name three times today!

  181. Couch Fan Says:

    I agree but its been a rainy night, I think they are calling simple plays to minimize the injury risks. it is only pre-season after all. And there is some hard hitting going on down there.

  182. Couch Fan Says:


    I thought our 1st beat there 1st. This game was ours up until the last few minutes of the 2nd quarter.

  183. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Drew Says: August 8th, 2013 at 10:06 pm
    “What is the overall consensus of the 1s against the 1s?”

    Can’t really say since half the Bucs 1s did not play at all.

  184. Illuminati Says:

    Weber’s first throw of the game, and first pick of the game.

  185. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    How to lose your job in one play by Adam Weber

  186. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Our first team looks good. Our pass defense is much improved. Hillis looks like great RB depth. Our DL and WR depth is better than last year. Those are the positives I’ve seen tonight.

  187. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Glennon threw a pick

  188. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    That was Weber who threw the pick just now.

  189. Killian Says:

    Our 1st looked better than their first!

  190. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I know, Dallas. Illuminati said Weber threw the first pick of the game. But Glennon did.

  191. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Boy I’m glad Weber is just a camp arm and nothing more.

  192. Illuminati Says:

    Okay, we’ve seen enough of Weber. Bring on Orlovsky.

  193. Killian Says:

    Why is this Weber kid playing?

  194. FLBoyInDallas Says:



  195. Andrew 1 Says:


  196. Killian Says:

    We should only keep Free and Glennon…

  197. Couch Fan Says:

    Well we got a long ways to go Bucs. The defending champs slapping us in the mouth in a good thing, specially now in the pre-season. This should light a fire under all there @$$es

  198. Illuminati Says:

    I didn’t mean Weber threw the first of the game. I meant he threw HIS first pick of the game. Two now for him, of course.

  199. Bobby Says:

    I’ll go out on a limb and say Weber gets cut…….

  200. Killian Says:

    Disappointed in Means and Gholston. Shoulda spent the money on Dumervil.

  201. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Lol…Andrew 1, don’t you know it only counts if Josh throws the picks????

    Glennon 11 of 23. Less than 50% completions. An interception…against backups.

    I’m not saying he’s a bust…bt he has a lot of work ahewd of him.

  202. Andrew 1 Says:

    33 just got spanked

  203. Couch Fan Says:

    A lot of these plays the ravens are making are against guys who dont stand much of a chance of making the team…. thats a positive to me.

  204. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    See? I told you we would lose this one. I would say it doesn’t matter, but we had three players get injured (so far). Only backups should ever play preseason…

  205. Killian Says:

    BB, while Glennon wasn’t spectacular there were several drops by WRs. At least 3 by Owusu.

  206. Drew Says:

    What a spanking. Buc Ugly is alive and well.

  207. Andrew 1 Says:

    @ BuccaneerBonzai

    he’s my dark horse. hes ganna sneak up on everybody and steal the job. you heard it hear first.

  208. Architek Says:

    It’s just preseason

  209. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Also, Couch…refs are calling few penalties. Like the play that injured Hillis…tackler led with his helmet.

  210. Andrew 1 Says:


  211. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Smith not impressing at the KR position and not impressing as a RB either. I think he gets cut in favor of Leonard, Hillis & James.

  212. Couch Fan Says:

    Agreed Bonzai

  213. Drew Says:

    Are there any positives in this game?

  214. Lynch Says:

    Has anyone heard how severe Hillis injury was?

  215. Hutch Says:

    Any word on the Hillis injury?

  216. Andrew 1 Says:

    he wasnt ganna make the team anyway.

  217. Jason A Says:

    What do you think of your teams execution? “I’m all for it!!”

  218. Lynch Says:

    Hillis wasnt going to make the team? lmao

  219. Couch Fan Says:

    Yes there is a lot of positive about this game. We were firmly in control until late in the 2nd quarter when most of our 1st’s were out. Then the Ravens began to firmly spank us.

    @ Lynch

    @Jason A BWAHAHAHAHA so fitting!

    the bucs played safe tonight. Bucs will be fine in the reg. season. Detractors need to chill. Just look at recent history lions went 4-0 in the preseason before going 0-16 and New England went 0-4 before going 18-1 in 2007! All it’s used for is for coaches to develop and evaluate
    players to put the best 53(46*) men on the field during the regular season.

    I’m sorry I don’t go into any games with that mindset.

    Last year has absolutely no bearing on the outcomes of any matches this season.

    You can think how you want, it’s just not how I see it.

    Overall in the first few drives that really mattered we took it in my opinion.
    I’m happy, hopefully our players get well soon.

  226. Couch Fan Says:

    Good game Bucs. I think our starters measured up pretty well to the defending champs. A lot of positives. Def some things we need to work on. D-Line was not very impressive. Neither was the O-Line for that matter.

    Somewhere Myron Lewis is laughing.

  228. PRBucFan Says:

    It’s his first action ever in a preseason game lets not make premature judgements about Glennon lol.

    Already labeling him a career backup, funny stuff.

  229. Andrew 1 Says:

    laughing all the way to the unemployment line.

    Agree that it’s primarily to evaluate talent. Our 1’s did fine and that’s all that matters. Looks like Atlanta got spanked too. Means nothing.

  231. Neil Says:

    Wow, another beat down. Well, some positives would be that Leonard looks good, competition at place kicker, Glennon at least throws the ball down the field, Ogletree stood out, Lavonte David is lightning fast, and Banks made some plays.

    The cuts on offense should come easy…..everyone on offense in the 4th quarter is gone haha.

    James and Michael Smith didn’t show much in game 1 to be excited about.

    Defensive line pass rush was nonexistent as usual.

    Doesn’t count, but I wasn’t too impressed with our depth compared to the defending champs!

  232. Splengo Says:

    Well folks,what you’ve been looking at for the last hour is our depth. With the number of 1st teamers coming off injuries, they aren’t going to be able to play all the time. God help us when we get deep into the season, we’re going to need a bench.

    Some decisions made during the offseason may come back to haunt us. The risk taken with the D-Line is huge. Our pass rush better show up soon or even Revis won’t be able to save us. Makes you wonder – is Freeman the issue determining the Bucs success this year or is it Schiano?

  233. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    Bennett has been lighting up for the Seahawks so far. Really think we should have tried harder to keep him. Bowers was playing against soon-to-be bouncers but couldn’t get it done. This is VERY concerning.
