“We Are Preparing For Normality”

March 31st, 2021

Buccaneers co-chairman Joel Glazer

If The Sickness continues to decline and more and more people are vaccinated, it’s possible that a full house could welcome your defending Super Bowl champion Bucs when they play their first home game at The Licht House.

That’s the word from no less of an authority than Joel Glazer. The Buccaneers co-chairman held a rare press conference Wednesday, this time via Zoom, where he discussed various Bucs items.

One was about fans at home games.

“We are preparing for normality,” Glazer beamed. “That is our expectation.”

Of course, with a virus, who knows? Remember, the Bucs planned on fans at home games last year but only a limited handful could attend the first two. Some 15,000 were allowed in for the third game, which was roughly the same standard for the rest of the home schedule.

Glazer didn’t exactly deny that limited seating may be the norm initially. But that is certainly not the goal or what the team is working toward.

“May be a walk-before-you-can-run process,” Glazer said. “As we prepare for next season, we are preparing for normality and all the excitement that comes with it.”

Of course, this may be out of Glazer’s hands and those of NFL strongman Roger Goodell, who yesterday was also bullish about the NFL playing before full stadiums this fall. If there is a major flareup of The Sickness or a variant locally, that could force the Bucs to limit seating.

In the immortal words of Moe Howard, “We shall see.”

    With Ron DeeeeSantis as Governor, you can expect a full house, no matter what the situation.

    Alanbucsfan: unfortunately you are 💯% correct

  9. ClodHopper Says:

    You gotta believe there will be normalcy by then. It’s got to happen. Believe in it!

    Licht house. No.

  11. Jerry Says:

    No doubt it will still be mandatory masks and you’ll have to show your “vax pass.”

  12. Patrick Says:

    Let people make their own decisions. And I’m saying that as a person who’s worn a mask over the past year and hasn’t gone out or been around people hardly at all. Use common sense, stop blaming politicians for YOUR OWN decision making, and hold yourselves accountable. If you decide to go out and be in a crowded bar, or a full sports stadium, and you get Covid, do not blame DeSantis or anyone else. It’s you making the decision.

  13. Buc50 Says:

    Let people make their own decisions like the clown down in Miami. People generally can’t be trusted to make great health decisions when it comes to the general public. Too many selfish people.

  14. BUCNOLE Says:

    Buc50- Miami Beach had nothing to do with the virus. They shut the city down because those trashy people were destroying it. Would have been a curfew even if there was no virus. They were practically rioting or as CNN calls it mostly “peaceful protests.”

  15. Mike Honcho Says:

    Right. So because people choose to make their own decisions about how to live their lives, that’s selfish, and Big Brother must force us to submit for the good of the herd. But if “peaceful protesters” want to go marching through neighborhoods with bullhorns at 2am, that’s all good.

  16. SOFIERCE Says:

    Nothing normal about mask/vaccines. Just stop it.
