Super Cheap Tickets For Tomorrow Night’s Game

August 13th, 2021

Team Glazer manages a multi-billion-dollar sports empire but can’t seem to figure out a way to let at least a couple hundred, non-season-ticket-holder, Average-Joe fans into Bucs training camp practices to occupy empty seats.

Joe realizes that the team’s social justice committee focuses its resources and efforts on far more important causes, but they might want to add this fan atrocity to their next meeting agenda.

Still time to make it right, Bucs.

Or at least test a system or two so you find a fix for next season.

With all that in mind, Joe is typing this post as sort of a public service announcement.

Tickets for tomorrow night’s preseason opener against the Bengals are starting at $10 per seat on They’ll probably drop to around $6.00 by kickoff.

Yeah, parking costs money as does a snack and a drink, but it’s at least reasonably affordable and it might represent the only chance to see the team in person for a lot of fans that are tight on cash.

    Might be watching through intermittent squalls.

  3. Elite Vita Says:

    What’s the rules and regulations as per Covid? Does everyone need to wear a mask?

  4. Steven007 Says:

    Vita, honor system. Season ticket holders were sent a letter saying if you are completely vaccinated a mask is optional. Translation: there will be very few masks seen. Actual language from the letter regarding face coverings:

    “If you are not fully vaccinated, it is recommended that you wear a mask throughout Raymond James stadium. If you are fully vaccinated, masks are optional in your seats and all outdoor spaces. Masks are recommended for everyone indoors.”

  5. Jason Says:

    Hmmm…. $6 + bus pass + umbrella + bottle of vodka in my waistband. What section you in Medicated Pete? Lol. I’m in.

  6. rriddler Says:

    I always give my preseason tickets away. It’s too hot in August (or, in the case of tomorrow, too wet) to go watch the backups play in person.

    I will, however, tolerate heat and rain when the games matter.

  7. Medicated Pete Says:

    @ Jason

    Pete gets carted-off when he drinks in the hot sun. But honestly, former season tix holder & single game buyer. I like watching games from home better now that 60-70inch tv’s are so cheap.

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    My wife’s fully vaccinated and still tested positive.

    Wear your bleeping masks everyone.

    Don’t listen to anyone….you can still catch it…vaccinated or not.

    Go Bucs!!!

    @Medicated Pete.

    I agree about the games on television. I just miss the night practice. It was kinda like a pep rally. Iol.

  11. Medicated Pete Says:

    Seeing the Pirate Ship in action is always fun. Coolest thing I’ve seen in any stadium across America

  12. Dremond Says:

    Of course you would respond that, rather than answering the question. Super petty.

  13. Bird Says:


    Any word if game being moved up?
    Or is there a cut off time when decision made

  14. BradyBucs Says:


    Unfortunately, I have a feeling all the in-person games are going to get CANCELLED for the season at any moment, especially before the season starts.

    This stupid Delta variant thing is exploding new daily cases and deaths across Florida now. I believe the current peaks have surpassed the previous peaks from Covid for last year already.

    I just don’t see the NFL not cancelling in-person games at Ray Jay soon.

  15. BradyBucs Says:

    In-person meaning allowing fans to watch in the stadium is what I meant.

  16. Mike Johnson Says:

    Truth be told, A lot of Buc fans are hurting for cash. Many will just pop a few tops like me and watch our team on the tele. But 10 bucks is dirt cheap to get a glimpse of the world champs. For many, their only chance. If i were in Tampa, I’d take advantage of this opp.

  17. Buxszntkt Says:

    It’s interesting. Should they cancel ? I suppose the players are safe from the 65k fans , so that’s not relevant. I’ve had the vaccine and COVID afterwards, but not thrilled about sitting next to sweaty people screaming for three hours, and the mrs. hasn’t had COVID so she’s vulnerable to these DeSantis loving unvaccinated arses.

  18. Joe Says:

    Any word if game being moved up?

    If there was, Joe would have it on the front page. 👍

    Paul Dellegato doesn’t believe the storm will have any impact on the game. If anything he typed, the standard Florida afternoon/evening showers may.

  19. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    When I was in India, the locals would wear a mask backwards on their head when in the forests because they believed the Bengal Tigers would only attack a victim from behind.

    So stephen007 is almost correct. You should wear a mask at Cits Stadium but the correct way is to wear it backwards. It doesn’t matter to the Chinese Flu because it travels through masks like a fart through your panties, but it confuses the heck out of Bengals.

  20. Bird Says:

    Nice. Thanks joe. Dont mind a little wind. No need to slip and tear something on a wet field.

    Stoked for tomorrow

  21. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    I don’t think vaxxed people should worry about Bengal Tiger attacks, they won’t eat rotten or spoiled meat.

  22. Kev@Inverness Says:

    Probably want to keep your day job, Ghost.

  23. Buczilla Says:

    Too much good going on now for me to be negative about the Glazers. Anyone that has been following our team for a decent amount of time, knows their history, both crazy good and incredibly bad. It is what it is and ultimately, winning is all that matters to me.

  24. Rod Munch Says:

    I only buy club seats. You will get COVID from the unwashed masses, that is a fact. Fancy people take showers and cover their mouth when they sneeze, unlike poor people, so you’re safe.

  25. Jason Says:

    So if I put my vodka in a hip flask that makes me “sophisticated” and I’m good to go right.
    See ya tomorrow night Go BUCS!!!

  26. Rod Munch Says:

    Jason – if you put your pinky up while taking a swig of your firewater while you dance in the aisles, you’re covered.

  27. BradyBucs Says:

    Rod “Vita Vea is only a 2-down run stuffer” Munch back with more words of wisdom.

  28. Jerry Says:


    Check the prices for the Cowboys game…. (spoiler: It ain’t $10)

  29. Rod Munch Says:

    BradyBucs – Vita has 7 sacks in 3 years, and you guys are calling him the second coming of Warren Sapp.

    First, you need to actually get sacks if you’re gonna be the ‘next Warren Sapp’… second, you need to actually play more than 21% of the defensive snaps for games you’re active in.

    I like Vita, he’s a really good 2-down run stuffer. A traditional NT who eats up space. He’s not a pass rusher.

  30. Duane Davis Says:

    The game is sold out. How can the orgnization sell anymore seats.

  31. BradyBucs Says:


    If he was just a run stuffer he wouldn’t be getting double-teamed nearly every snap he’s in on. He’s double-teamed because he’d be getting through to the QB.

    Our pass rush gets more sacks when he’s in the game because of the pressure he can apply up the middle. If he was only a run stuffer that wouldn’t be the case.

    If he was just a run stuff the why was Bowles using him on Stunts and getting him to the outside edge during the Super Bowl?

    You don’t know what you’re talking about. So sorry to have to break that news to you… again.

  32. BradyBucs Says:


    Go watch this video on YouTube, “Film Study: Vita Vea was VITAL in Super Bowl 55 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers”

    Notice at the 6:00 mark Bowles even lined up Vea ON THE EDGE!

    Hahaha. You don’t do that with just a “run stuffer.”

    THE FILM DOESN’T LIE. That’s why stats are misleading.

  33. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Why would Vita ever come ner what Sapp had for Sacks?
    The Bucs play mainly a 3-4 defense. Bowles brings the heat with the linebackers in his scheme.
    Sapp was on a 4 man line, and that heat came from the front 4.
    It is Apples to oranges.

    BTW check the stats against the run, the 2019-20 Bucs D has been Historically good when Vita plays.
    When I say Historically good I mean since the merger in 1970.
    I believe the Run D is the 4th best since the merger when Vita lines up to play.
    So again the D-line sets up linebackers to bring the heat for T Bowles Defense in Tampa.
    Looking for big sack numbers from Vita is not going to happen in this scheme.

    That is not how you measure Vita’s impact.

    But the run defense being Historically good and Vita being a cornerstone for the front 7 to dominate is how you measure Vita Vea’s value.

    The Bucs simply do not function at a higher level consistently without VV manning the middle.

    GO BUCS!!!!

  34. Rod Munch Says:

    August 1976 – Don’t ask me, I’m not the one comparing him to Sapp, it’s these other dopes.

    BradyBucs – I did watch Vita in the SB. I watched him give up on a play, on 4th down, where he was getting pressure and Mahomes escaped the pocket. Then Vita just literally stops on the play while Mahomes then runs around for probably 5 seconds. It was in the 4th quarter, almost certain it was on 4th down, and Mahomes eventually threw it incomplete. But I went back and rewatched the SB a few times, and it was not a good game for Vita. There’s a reason he played so few snaps, he wasn’t doing much. With that said Vita had a very good game against the Packers, and against what should have been a much better offensive line. I’m not at all saying he’s a bad player, but people here are comparing him to a 1st ballot HOF’er and saying he’s an all-pro when he hasn’t done anything yet.

    Also saying someone is a run stuff does not mean they never get pressure. Simeon Rice was known as being a pass rush specialist and not good against the run, and he made plenty of run stops in his career.

  35. August 1976 Buc Says:

    “I’m not at all saying he’s a bad player, but people here are comparing him to a 1st ballot HOF’er and saying he’s an all-pro when he hasn’t done anything yet.”

    Rod.. I would say this is a fair assessment at this point in time when comparing Vita to a HOF player.
    We will see if he takes the next step and becomes an all pro at his position, time will tell. He is dominant now at times but there is another level for him to go to. The talent is there. The guy is built like a Rhino, and you know people already hate having to go up against the manbeast.

    With all that said, I will say again.. when Vita is not in the line up, the defense operates at a lower level, that is for sure.

    The 1 knock on Vita is, he has got to be able stay on the field without his body breaking down, that has been the only thing able to stop him so far in his young career. But that is huge because your best ability is availability.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  36. BradyBucs Says:


    First of all, very few people are saying he’s the next Sapp. They’re completely different players playing in different schemes.

    YOU said over and over that he’s only a 2-down run stuffer. Before the playoffs when he came back from injury YOU stated he wasn’t going to contribute much and wasn’t going to help our pass rush.

    You EMBARRASSED yourself with those statements. Just like you’re embarrassing yourself now. LOL. You’re referring to a single play when Mahomes juked Vita (he jukes players half Vita’s size all the time and is hard to chase) as something that proves he’s not an effective pass rusher? LOL.

    THE TAPE DOESN’T LIE. I notice how you had no comments on that YouTube video that analyzes Vea’s Super Bowl performance and how Bowles utilized him.

    Vea was put on the edge to rush, was used in stunts to free up so he could rush and get pressure. He helped JPP & Shaq rack up the sacks and QB pressures.

    Sorry, but you’re 100% WRONG by saying Vea is merely a 2-down run stuffer. He stops the run AND is a pass rushing threat that collapses the pocket and draws double-teams.
