The Buccaneers cannot see empty seats this season. With the additions they have made this off-season. Raymond James has to be rocking the majority of the season. Last season the Bucs had some difficulty selling tickets week 1 against the Panthers, and it was Ronde Barber Day. But that was last season...

The thing about Tampa is that it has a ton of diversity. This town is a Bucs town if it wants to be. In the early 2000s this place was filled with Bucs fans. You would see K.Johnson, Alstott and B.Johnson jerseys everywhere. Winning is now and you can see that with the commitment of the front office. There is no excuses for the players or the fans.

Then this comes into play. All the years that the Bucs struggled recently , true Bucs fans got a bunch of trash for the team struggling. Then the Bucs go out and sign Vincent Jackson and Carl Nicks and the Tampa area still had empty seats and blackouts for having a (7-9) team under new head coach Greg Schiano. A great improvement from the 2011 season though. The Bucs go out and make another splash in free agency and sign two of the greatest defensive players in the NFL in Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson! The people who talked trash before are all of a sudden happy for the Bucs saying, "Tampa is going to be good this year, can't wait." There really isn't a problem with it, but with the Tampa area there is a lot of different fans (NY, BOS, PIT). You walk into a Beef O' Bradys in Tampa, and there is maybe one Bucs jersey inside. They have their eyes glued to the Ravens vs Eagles game. It's the Bucs year and it's time to show it Tampa. Bring back that home field advantage!
