Liquor Coming To Bucs Games?

Soon, you too may be able to buy liquor at Bucs games, without needing a luxury box seat.

Soon, you too may be able to buy liquor at Bucs games, without needing a luxury box seat.

The way the Bucs have played in recent years at the Den of Depression, many a Bucs fan wanted to turn a bottle of Jack upside down and see how much they could pour down their gullet.

It appears it may get easier to do just that.

Per Richard Danielson of the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs are trying to obtain a liquor license whereby they can sell liquor to fans, not just the ones in the luxury boxes.

The Bucs tried this years ago but Tampa cops were paranoid they might not get to watch the game and have to instead do their jobs and drag unruly fans out of the stadium. Now, the cops aren’t fighting the liquor sales proposal.

In 2007, the City Council voted down a similar request after police said more booze would lead to more bad behavior at Bucs games.

This time, however, Tampa police are not objecting to or raising concerns about the request. In a report to the council, police said they’ve had 151 calls for service at the stadium since 2012.

By comparison, eight years ago police said that during the 10 home games of the Bucs’ 2006 season, about half of the 192 incidents at the stadium were alcohol-related.

Joe believes if one wants to buy liquor — you can only imagine the mark-up — at insane costs, so be it. Drink away. It’s ‘Merica for God sakes!

A couple of years ago Joe, was at a football game held in Jerry’s World in Dallas, and Joe was pleased to learn Crown and Cokes could be purchased through the end of the game, including the fourth quarter.

If it is good enough for Jerry Jones and Cowgirls fans, then why not Bucs fans who have had to sit through insufferable loss after loss while getting roasted in the sun in the process?

    Where was this last year??? In fact if they also offered blindfolds, ear plugs and The big foam hand that says “We are #32” the Glazers would have been ranking in the dough!!!

  2. tmaxcon Says:

    oh the 4th quarter heckling / boos will be so much more entertaining with full liquor bar when lovie’s team quits like they did against titans. nice win in new orleans but we need to see consistency before the bar opens.

  3. mike Says:

    we need it

  4. You Go Joe Says:

    They had this at the Cowboys stadium when I went…. DAM EXPENSIVE LIQUOR. I was glad I went with pre-drinking

  5. I know why Says:

    Awesome news, this broke at the same time Derrelle Revis won Defensive player of the week! Sure glad he couldn’t fit into our system and we got to sign the trio of players who aren’t even here anymore. That is why I need liquor at the game…

  6. passthebuc Says:

    too many heavy drinkers in the stands now

  7. rjhurst813 Says:

    I BMOL on game days and I didn’t leave the Titan’s game until my personal supply was dried up. Next-time I’m gonna double-up just in case. I refused to pay 9 bucks for a beer while watched that performance on opening day, so left to drink some more.

  8. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    …’s already bad enough the NFL can’t control idiot fans when they consume beer

    ….sure….now let’s X5 your alcohol content…..dumb

  9. Buc1987 Says:

    It’s usually what I drink in the parking lot, so yep I’ll buy it if it’s available. Don’t like switching from liquor to beer anyways if I don’t have to, but I adjust after a couple of beers. So it’s a YES vote for me.

  10. cmurda Says:

    If the Bucs continue to lay eggs at home, the Glazers should just offer the liquor at no cost during the 4th quarter.

  11. Tom Edrington Says:

    Really? Hasn’t anyone ever heard of the “hidden flask”? Was a college students best friend back in my ECU days.

    Why pay stadium prices when you can sneak in your own flask?

  12. No better way to say it Says:

    Bad idea.

  13. BrianBucs Says:

    I guarantee that the worse the team plays, the more booze they will sell. Could have sold a ton last year while going 2-14 and winless at home

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    Tom..I’ve seen people do that ALL the time. I never tried it though. Haven’t seen it done lately though. I’ve seen fans pull out nips out of their undewear,

  15. Joe Dunn Says:

    Lightning, Rays and most other pro franchises allow you to buy booze WITHOUT being in Club Seats – – – about time Bucs got off their high horse and became more fan-friendly.
    The concession experience there is very so-so and that is part of my reasoning for not going to many games in person.
    They also sell nothing but Bud Light and Miller Lite at 95% of the beer stands and I will not drink those NO-FLAVOR skank beers.

  16. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Maybe lovie could get him a couple nips and get a little more creative with that boring lovie 2….loved chris conte the other day saying his college defense was funa dn exciting and got him to the NFL

  17. Buc1987 Says:

    “They also sell nothing but Bud Light and Miller Lite at 95% of the beer stands and I will not drink those NO-FLAVOR skank beers.”

    LMAO…YUP…that’s why I have to get good and hammered before I go in. Paying high prices for crappy beer, the only way I’ll do that is if I’m good and drunk going in.

  18. Sean Says:

    Great, more drunken idiots stumbling out of Ray Jay and me having to explain to my kids why that lady over there keeps falling down…

  19. BucTrooper Says:

    There’s no liquor at RJS? I hadn’t noticed since flasks are plastic and undetectable to that ridiculous do-nothing wand……

    ….but that’s none of my business.

  20. Jeagan1999 Says:

    stay at home and watch the game from the comfort of your own sofa if you want to drink. It’s what I do, so I can enjoy a “Painkiller” or 2…or 3….during the game…(nothing better than Kirk and Sweeney 23yr old rum, coconut milk, pineapple and a little nutmeg!) If you want to go to the game, have a beer or two, but avoid the heavy stuff! There will be fewer fights in the stadium and fewer accidents on the roads!

  21. BigMacAttack Says:

    I don’t drink at the games so I don’t care.

  22. SchlomieBarMitzvahCircumScissorStein Says:

    Why wast the time and money on going to a game. So much better from Brickhouse, or Winghouse. The service is better, you can see all the games and the food is better. Lastly, you aren’t getting absolutely ripped off. The NFL knows that less fans are showing up. They are grasping at straws. They are offering liquor to make more money for the upcoming concussion lawsuits…

  23. Another J Says:

    Rum and coke at an NFL game would probably set you back $ 28.50

  24. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’d rather smoke a premium cannabis joint at the stadium watching the game. Stupid police state BS.

  25. Joe Cool Says:

    How about more water fountains throughout the stadium instead of selling water bottles for $4.50?

  26. Pickgrin Says:

    Amen Buccfan37.

    Alcohol (especially liquor) causes 100X more problems for the heavy users and those around them than cannabis would. Its high time we changed these beyond ridiculous “laws” that say using cannabis is a crime. Never should have been “illegal” in the 1st place.

  27. Marvelous Mayhem Says:

    Jack, weed, and a home victory. Imagine that.
