Bucs Will Play (Burn) A Home Game In Germany

February 25th, 2022

It’s official. Our beloved Buccaneers will play one home game in Germany in 2022.

Who they will play is yet to be determined. But it will be an official Tampa Bay home game, so the Bucs will play eight at The Licht House this season rather than nine.

Joe hates losing a home game for the home fans, but Joe is thinking road trip.

Most likely, the game will be played in October to avoid late fall or winter snow in Munich. So the Bucs will get a late bye week on the following Sunday.

    Any NFL team who is forced to play a (home) game in a foreign country should be compensated with a draft pick. At least a 4th rounder.

    This sucks arse holes.

    Someone buy the Germans a cold Big Storm Beer for saying no to the Russian Pipeline, after Putin invaded Ukraine!

  3. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Hopefully it will be in Oktober Herr Joseph!

  4. PatG Says:

    Germany in October??? Mmmmm, something else goes on around that same time but I can’t quite place it.

    big trouble in little germany?

  8. Mike Johnson Says:

    OK..Now compensate us with a draft pick for going to Germany to play a home game.

  9. Joe Says:

    Guessing it will be. Don’t think the NFL wants to play its first game in Germany in winter.

  10. SB Says:

    It figures. As soon as we lose relevance we have to give up a home game overseas. I don’t think we have ever had an ‘away’ game overseas.

  11. unbelievable Says:

    Man next season is really just going to suck in every way possible, huh?

  12. unbelievable Says:

    @SB – you are correct.

    We have lost every overseas game we’ve ever played.

  13. BucfaninMi Says:

    Such BS. They already got one less home game than half the league, so now again. If Europe liked American football they’d have it!

  14. '79 Defense Says:

    Such f-ing BS.

  15. Anonymous Says:

    Makes the hard schedule harder but if it was the home Chiefs game, it was likely a loss anyway at home, unless a Tampa can hire a QB whom can compete v. a top 5 QB.

  16. Marine Buc Says:

    @ SB

    This is more evidence that the Bucs SB window has officially closed.

    Get real people – it’s time to rebuild.


    I know it doesn’t taste very good but just let it slide down your throat. Maybe add a little hot sauce…

    This too shall pass.

    Jameis Winston contract: Saints set to begin talks with QB ahead of 2022 NFL free agency, per report

  19. Rod Munch Says:

    Unless the Bucs can land a top QB, they should just use this as a clean-up year. Start Trask, clean up the cap (just make sure you resign Godwin and Whitehead), don’t sign anyone so you get a bunch of comp picks, and after the Bucs go 3-14 they’ll have maybe the #1 in the draft, or close to it. Then trade back, sign a real QB in FA or trade for a vet, and we’re in good shape for 2023 and beyond.

    Worst case scenario would be something stupid like trying to keep the team together, restructuring a bunch of deals to push cap hits to next year and beyond, then having Gabbert as the QB, ending the season 6-11, not fixing the cap, not getting the comp picks, still have no idea what you got in Trask.

  20. Erick Says:

    If you think Arians is coming back at his age to coach Kyle Trask or Blaine Gabbert, you’re delusional.

  21. BucBrady Says:

    People book hotels in Munich during October almost a year in advance. Not gonna be an easy time for Bucs fans to try and get there.

  22. HC Grover Says:

    Have fun on Leopoldstrasse Joe. Wish i could go.

  23. New England Patriots Fan Says:

    Arians is in the Bill Belichek conundrum. He wants to be seen as great couch post Brady, but he doesn’t have the QB or cap space unless GM wants to spend a lot. Bill flopped year 1 post Brady, and he invested 151m in cap in one season to built a super defense and add weapons and draft a first round QB.

    With all that he made it in as a wild card one and done embarrassment for NE standard.

    BA returning to coach a low tier QB will look worse than Bill in 2020. So he has to get a franchise caliber starter.

    Yeah, I don’t disagree with you at all, which is why it’s so odd that Arians didn’t retire. If they can’t trade for a top QB, I’m still not ruling out that he suddenly has ‘health issues’ that will mean he steps away from coaching for a year, which is nice way of saying he’s retiring. Then you like promote Bowles, although I don’t know how eager he’d be to pilot a 3-14 team.

  25. HC Grover Says:

    Munich rocks and is a fun place to visit. Especially in October. Fergit London A JBF road trip would be awesome.

  26. New England Patriots Fan Says:

    The only conceivable stronger starters Tampa can get are Watson Mayfield or Carr or Cousins, which require picks and spending lots of cash on 40m/y salaries.

    Sounds like Wilson and AR are set on what they are doing and it’s not Tampa. And Winston will return to Saints.

    Wentz or Jimmy are options too.

  27. Marine Buc Says:

    @ New England

    I agree.

    Now is the time for BA to prove he is the true “QB whisperer” that he has been labeled all these years.

    If BA can win 10+ games and the NFC South starting Gabbert/Trask he will earn the “QB whisperer” title.

  28. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Too bad……Tom retired because Giselle’s extended family could see him play in Germany…..
    Gefangen in den Fesseln der Depression (you can figure that out)

  29. gbobucsfan Says:

    I’m reading it’s against KC and it’s KC that is losing the Home game not TB ? ? ?

  30. HC Grover Says:

    I am going to try to go the game. It would be so much fun.

  31. HC Grover Says:

    It will prolly be Oct 2 the finale of Octoberfest. WOW what a trip that would be.

  32. Ben green Says:

    By then, Germany maybe a satellite state of the new CCCP. Don’t bring y’all’s Superbowl rings, Putin may steal them all, like he did to Mr Kraft

  33. DBS Says:

    At least we see the people that have purchased their Gabbert bobblehead dolls already. Just praying he starts.

  34. Mike C Says:

    Hey pat fan, Tom is gone, you can go with him.

  35. TBD Says:

    Disagree with the last commenter. Patriots fan, you are welcome here. I know you initially came aboard because of Tom. And the fact that you continue to have an interest in the team after his departure.. is pretty damn cool.

    You are definitely welcome here.

  36. Ben green Says:

    Mike C, we’ll leave when we’re damn good and ready. Shouldn’t be much longer, it’s hard to generate interest in a 5-12 football team

  37. Bubby Says:

    When the weather finally turns beautiful here, they’ll go to Germany. So dumb, Bucs!

  38. BucsFan81 Says:

    Well the NFL might be re thinking this of WW3 is going on in Europe.

  39. Mike C Says:

    Just check the Pat’s next year Ben queen

  40. BA4President Says:

    Hopefully Russia hasn’t moved into Germany by then.

  41. BUCS Fan 83 Says:

    To hell with international games. They take away from us. They want American football, then make your own American football league.

  42. FortMyersDave Says:

    All about the coin. Certain teams like the Jags, Bucs and Raiders sell home games for the coin while others like the Pats, Cowboys and Chiefs seem to only travel overseas or to Mexico as the road team. Some owners want the win, others want the coin so guess where the Glazer lads fall? Heck, maybe they read the tea leaves and penciled the game in as a loss and simply went for the cash grab.

  43. Dylan Says:

    Maybe this is a dumb question but why can’t the league just find a way to make it an away game for both teams? It seems stupid to force a team to play overseas with all that entails and then strip them of a vital home game to boot.
