Once upon a time, the Buccaneers were an up and coming franchise, with a brand new stadium and an ungodly waiting list to get season tickets. Many people throughout the years have disputed the actual number the Buccaneers always put out as far as how many people were on the waiting list, but regardless, it was long. At some points it may have been as long as 100,000 people.
I know personally, because before I acquired my own season tickets, me and a friend had put our name on the waiting list, and didn’t receive a call back about getting season tickets for 4.5 YEARS! True Story.
This is why the promotion that the Bucs are running this weekend called Pick-A-Seat makes me cry. This weekend the Bucs will allow fans to come into the stadium, walk around and meet with ticket reps, and go sit in any available seat in the stadium. From there, they will be able to purchase season tickets for those seats if they choose.
100,000 people has become a BS publicity stunt to sell tickets. I will now finish my sob fest.
***I apologize for the lack of posts lately guys. I have been swamped at work, and we are just in that dead time of the NFL season with the OTA’s not even really being fully participated in, and in the post free agency/post draft/pre training camp mode. No excuses though, I’ll get back on the ball!!!!
