Is Jameis Pro-Ready For Hostile Home Turf?

May 23rd, 2015

JameisBuccaneers single game tickets go on sale Thursday morning.

And that means Giants and Cowboys fans are going to be gobbling up tickets for those November games in Tampa, as well as Bears fans ringing up their credit cards for the post-Christmas season finale at the Den of Depression.

Joe doesn’t want to look at Jameis Winston’s face when he realizes that some home games aren’t like home games at Florida State University.

Compared to last year, the Bucs waited an extra month to sell single-game tickets. Joe assumes that was to get as many local season tickets sold as possible before welcoming an inevitable flood of Bucs-booing ticket buyers.

Joe is encouraging Tampa Bay fans to buy tickets. Help thin the herd of annoying New Yorkers, Tony Romo lovers and Bears faithful.

The wacky thing is the presence of Jameis, America’s Quarterback, is likely to drive up interest from those out-of-town fans, and local fans of those teams.

    Panthers, Saints and Falcon games weren’t exactly Bucs friendly, either…

    The Den of Depression could make a killing selling opposing team jerseys.

    Bravo Joe for encouraging Tampa Bay fans to buy tickets. Watching the games on TV is cooler and cheaper for sure, but it’s just not the same as ‘being there’ and rooting for the Bucs. Except for two years, have had season tickets since RayJay opened and can tell ya that without a doubt home games are a LOT MORE FUN when Bucs fans outnumber opponents’ fans.

    They’re also a LOT MORE FUN when the Bucs field a competitive team. I’m convinced that the Bucs organization has now (once again) figured out what it takes to be competitive in the NFL, and that they’re driving in that direction finally. Hopefully this year we start seeing the fruits of that change in direction. Still, it takes a lot longer to build something than it does to destroy it.

    I’m going to the Titans and Cowboys games. I already have tickets purchased. Jameis has probably been very good for ticket sales.

    BloalkFootball. I g every home game and what you just posted about those three visiting teams is patently untrue.
    Atlanta fans? They had to pipe in fake noise to their stadium just to make it seem like they were interested in the game.
    Go take your lies somewhere else you troll.
    As for New York fans. Where were all of them when the Rays whipped the Yanks 3-1 in a four game series.
    Bears fans have nothing to crow about either. They have the most cowardly obnoxious fans in the NFL. They still think Dick Butkus is suiting up every Sunday.
    This year they will see the anti Dick Butkus if Mason Foster manages to start for them,

    I’m going to the Titans and Cowboys game, unfortunately I will be bringing Cowboy fans to the Cowboys game 🙁

    I lived in both Seattle and Detroit once upon a time, and Fans from other teams were always basically non existent.
    Not true here in Tampa, and what little, if any, home field advantage there is here is always neutralized by that stupid TAMPA then BAY cheer that takes place at the stadium. What a stupid cheer, because it basically shuts up 1/2 the stadium, between the TAMPA then BAY shouts.
    In Detroit, and especially Seattle, the entire stadium is screaming and yelling ALL the time, when the opposing team is trying to hear the plays.

    “In Detroit, and especially Seattle, the entire stadium is screaming and yelling ALL the time, when the opposing team is trying to hear the plays.”

    Which is exactly what I do from start to finish when I go to games. Even if we’re losing by 20 with 10 minutes to go. I holler non stop when the opposing team’s O is on the field. From start to finish.

    Buc1987… hoarse much?

    I know I’m here because of Jameis.

  11. America's Bucs Fan Says:

    Jameis Winston’s biggest critics and most hostile fans will be the Buc’s own fans, the majority of which did not want him drafted here to start with

    Chris@AppleRoofing: seatle and Detroit are not exactly tourist destinations for opposing team fans. You couldn’t pay me to go to Detroit (unfortunately I’ve been) and while Seatle is a great city it is a long flight for the majority of the country.

    The reality in this city is that everyone is from somewhere else and everyone wants to be associated with a winner. Just today I met 3 different people in the Publix deli line that were from New York and Texas that couldn’t wait to buy tickets for the Cowboys and Giants games. They then went on to criticize our fan base as a bunch of bandwagoners. of course I reminded them that they were part of the problem but until we win on a consistent basis, people like this will continue to be able to buy tickets cheap and fill our stadium. It is depressing.

    Put a competitive winning their share team on the field and the obnoxious visiting team fans will be severly limited. That is what is being built here in Tampa Bay.

    I’m looking at philly and tennessee. totally unrelated to this article. 🙂

    Cowgirls giants and bears lol can’t imagine any quarterback needing help from the home cried against those defenses. We can only hope the bears are dumb enough to play mason foster at middle linebacker on passing downs. Winston will bring ticket sales up if he starts day one, forget that if Glennon beats him out in training camp because miracles do happen
