Fights & Music Trouble Bruce Arians

January 14th, 2019

A lot will be different around One Buc Palace with Bucco Bruce Arians now in charge, and the head coach itemized a couple of them for the Salty Dogs Podcast.

Arians sat down with co-hosts Jeff Ryan and Scott Smith and the subject of training camp practices against other teams arose.

Yes, Arians is into it and has done it before, but he only seeks teams coached by guys he knows very well to ensure there is no fighting whatsoever.

“If it’s another coach that I know and it’s just going to be, ‘Hey, let’s get better’ not see who’s tougher and all that crap and fighting; there’s no place for that in football,” Arians said of joint practices in training camp.

As for what an Arians practice looks like, well, they’ll probably be a lot quieter. He explained his surprise when visiting team practices for his CBS analyst gig last year how they all had nightclub vibes. .

“I’m not a music guy. The players are going to have to talk me into this music. I might give in,” Arians said. “But everywhere I went it was music, even Coach Belichick. who has maybe had it the longest and nobody every knew it. I said, ‘Bill, really?’ He said, ‘Man, we’ve had this stuff on Fridays forever.'”

For those wondering, the Bucs have had music thumping through practice for years. Heck, the Bucs even got a fancy new sound system, a cool wall of speakers, for the 2018 season. No, nobody every played Ain’t It Fun for DeSean Jackson.

    Joe get off djax. man, you look bad considering your mancrush and blind support of cancer93. She has stole far more cash from glazers and quit on every coach he met yet you unconditionally support that clown

  2. AlteredEgo Says:

    Music sometimes…. only when it is not a distraction during the installation/ teaching parts of practice…. stretches.. breaks… etc…

  3. guinness8 Says:

    That song was horrible.
    Why would you want to do that to me Joe.

  4. JA Says:

    Wow! That was a horrible video! What age bracket are they targeting, 1-3-year olds?

  5. Rod Munch Says:

    Use music as a motivator. If the team loses they’re forced to listen to country music all week, I mean all week, everywhere, on the field, in the building, in the bathroom, country music, blaring everywhere. If you wanted to make me angry enough to rip someone’s head off and never lose again, just play non-stop country music for a week. Oh, and no, not cool old school country, not even Kenny Rodgers type of country music, nope, the like mid-2000s country that sounds like the worst pop-music you’ve ever heard.

    Damn, that makes me mad just thinking about it.

  6. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Yup! I say get rid of music at practice too. They need to focus on getting to the endzone before they start practicing their dancing. Maybe make music in practice something that is earned.

  7. AlteredEgo Says:

    Sheeeeittt…. we did even have water at practice

  8. DooshLaRue Says:

    Grrrrr! Munch hates country music……. Grrrrrrrr…. punishment music Grrrrrrr……So angry!!!

    Come on now Fancy Man as much as I hate lame country I hate me some hip-hop too.

    Maybe Bucco can pipe in some smoove Jazz?

  9. 813bucboi Says:

    make’em earn it bruce…..we win, music for the week….we lose, no music for the week…..simple as that!!!


  10. 813bucboi Says:


    i hear you…lol…

    HS was like that until korey stringer passed away…..then the coaches eased up a bit…..


  11. Hodad Says:

    Bellichick said we play it on Fridays, not all the time. I want to know if the ping pong table will be gone from the locker room with the card games. If you have the energy to play ping pong after, or before practice maybe you’re not practicing hard enough?

  12. Half_sac Says:

    Joe pulling out Paramore? My emo self can relate lol

  13. cmurda Says:

    LMAO @ Rod. Couldn’t agree more. I can’t really get down with even old school country but I could easily tolerate it. The 2000’s Country music would make me never screw up a play.

  14. Bucsfanman Says:

    Two words: SA-DE!

  15. Jim Says:

    Maybe Poppers “Requiem for Three Cellos and Piano”?

    “Joe get off djax. man, you look bad considering your mancrush and blind support of cancer93.

You keep talking about how soft people are yet you’re the one going full on snowflake every five minutes on the internet about another grown man. It’s getting really sad man.

    Must have been in Germany, celebrating the coming down of the wall.

  19. SOEbuc Says:

    Step one you need to take phones away at halftime BA. Looks like you’re putting together some good coaches so do everything the opposite of what this team has been doing in TC and practice.

  20. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Fire Arians! He hasn’t won 1 freaking game yet and now he’s complaining about music and fighting. Who does he think he is.. Fire Ariana!

  21. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    DJax sucks. Trade him or cut him loose.

  22. Rod Munch Says:

    DooshLaRue – Wow, that’s a great example – the way you guys get triggered by McCoy reading comic books is how I get triggered by modern country music. Thank you, I learned today how you feel and why you’re so irrational with your hatred.

  23. SteelStudBuc Says:

    I think this team needs no music at all in practice. They need to take their job more seriously. You can play on your phones and listen to music after practice… It’s high paid work… they’ll get over it.

  24. down in the dirt Doug Says:

    Hate going to Bucs games because I can’t stand all the kid type music played constantly.For Bucs practices lets have some inspiring theme songs now and again.I vote for no cell phones during halftime and no ping pong or such in the locker room.

  25. Larry Says:

    lol let’s go overboard and ban all music. Music after a great practice, sure Music after loss, no way…or maybe some of Lawrence Welk! (google it youngsters)

  26. donuts Says:

    Yeah, Bucs need to ditch the ping pong and music is earned on Fridays. bucs need a culture change as well as player changes on the lines.

  27. Alaska Man Says:

    Play TOOL, early Metallica, Judas Priest, Disturbed, System of a Down, Iron Maiden. If that doesn’t get the blood flowing, try John Denver.

  28. SteelStudBuc Says:

    How about this… this team doesn’t deserve music in practice. They need focus. They need to be sharp. They were 5-11 two consecutive years. This ain’t no party. This is work. Now get your heads outta your arses and FOCUS.

  29. Jean Lafitte Says:

    HaHaHa …Look out now. It’s Schiano 2.0 and Joe already has put this dastardly coach in his crosshairs. Next, B.A. will be controlling the Calico Heating and Air thermostat, and everyone in the local media will go apesh|t.

  30. BringBucsBack Says:

    True dat, SteelStud.

    No celebrations after plays either. You are supposed to make plays! This team has had nothing to celebrate for too long. Celebrate after a win, then move forward, like professionals.

  31. JA Says:

    It’s ok.
    I’ll let it slide …

  32. Buc believer Says:

    If they have a good practice let them play that stupid arse rap ship…. personally I stopped making rhymes when I left nursery school. If they have a bad practice make them listen to Bary Manillow or Air Supply that will get their attention.

  33. #1bucfan Says:

    Get rid of the music for most practice days. These boys need to work themselves out of the basement 1st before they can be dancing an all that nonsense. If your winning sure but your in the basement every year hell naw start grinding Bucs let’s go

  34. stpetebucsfan Says:

    No fighting…why lose a player to a truly stupid injury just to prove your tough.

    Music…OK….if you win the game you get music the following week…lose and perhaps we could loop some recorded boos for your audio pleasure.

  35. Mike Johnson Says:

    My guess is Bruce will let the players have music. But not at every practice. Especialy when he is dead serious about getting the work in. Actually its probably a good change.
