TV Map For Stinking Panthers-Bucs Game

December 31st, 2022

Free football.

Not even Tom Brady can save the Bucs for America.

This may be the very first time NFL shot-callers and FOX network suits have deemed the Bucs and Tom Brady unwatchable (but for the final two minutes of a game). The national types have caught on

Few TV markets will get to see the Bucs on their local FOX affiliate tomorrow. Pretty much only the Carolinas, Florida, the Ohio River Valley and a strip of the Midwest. Oh, and a small part of New England.

The TV broadcast map for the Stinking Panthers-Bucs game looks like a throwback to the Lost Decade with Stewart McClown at quarterback. But, that’s what happens when your offense is pathetic and you are playing another losing team with Sam Darnold as its quarterback. Little appeal there for neutral or casual NFL fans, not even with Brady.

FOX is still sending its top crew, however, Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen will work the game. When is the last time FOX buried its No. 1 broadcast booth like this?

Of course, Bucs fans can head to Big Storm Brewery in Clearwater or Big Storm’s other taprooms in Odessa, Cape Coral and downtown Orlando at the Amway Center. And naturally, visiting your neighborhood Hooters is always a wise move. Bonus: Select Hooters in Florida carry Big Storm beer on tap!

(Streaming information and options will be included in the “Gameday Tampa Bay” post scheduled to publish on this here website at midnight.)

    On another TV topic, in the bar last night there was a TV tuned to ESPN 2, and they were showing the College Cornhole Championship. Two guys doing exactly what you did at backyard parties, but with some advertising logos and announcers. I have so many questions.

    1. Since it is the “college” championship, does that mean there is a pro cornhole league out there? If so, surely there must be rules to prevent players from getting paid to play, or from declaring for the pro league too early.

    2. Being the “championship,” was there cornhole playoffs? I wonder if there are stats on cornhole wild cards making it to the championship.

    3. How does one make it out of the college cornhole ranks? Maybe there is the cornhole combine, where fellow cornholers can display their athletics.

    4. Are there cornhole safety standards? Perhaps the cornhole concussion protocols are something the NFL can model from.

    5. Is there a cornhole hall of fame? The Canton or Cooperstown for elite cornholers?

    These are the types of questions that kept me out of the really good schools.

    Didn’t think you were going to, but you pulled it off. By the 3rd one I was chuckling and by the last one I was laughing! Thank you for that…

  3. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Every city has a cornhole Hall of Fame. It’s right next door to the local Alcoholics Anonymous.

  4. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Now take the application of the word cornhole as it existed when I was growing up in the 60s and early 70s and re-read DungyDance’s post.

  5. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Because this game is for the NFC South Championship, I expected more TV Coverage.

  6. D-Rok Says:

    LOL, Dungy. Good stuff, man. I’ve often wondered the same about ping-pong. Oh, my bad, “table tennis.”

  7. PassingThru Says:

    Idiotic coverage. Many fans in the New England area would rather watch the Bucs. What jackass would think that New Englanders would want to watch the Jets, let alone Phili? Those are 2 franchises are repulsive to the local fanbase.

  8. Dude Says:

    That map actually is well balanced. Sports is localized. It’s about as fair as it gets. Remember, it’s all about the ratings. They probably have stats telling them what areas watch what teams.

    And how is this even a story? Did you all run out of the brady stroking fluff pieces?

  9. unbelievable Says:

    As someone in my mid 30s, I would happily play in a cornhole or ping pong championship. Dudes are probably getting paid and having fun. Why not?

  10. unbelievable Says:

    But yea… why TF am I getting the Philly – New Orleans game out here in San Diego? Garbage!

  11. Mike Says:

    Truly it’s been almost as painful watching the Bucs as going to the Dentist. I really hope they find some way to play better against the Panthers.

    I’ll have it on Bucs Radio as always, so big deal. Actually, if that map is accurate, this one will have more coverage boob tube wise than expected.
