    As a bucs fan, I know all to well about blackouts. I really do hope the black out is lifted. The economy is still down yet NFL still is a billion dollar company! …they can afford to show games from time to time.

  2. Kathleen Anello says:

    Please eliminate the blackout rule for the Tampa Bay Buc’s home games. We the taxpayers paid for Raymond James Stadium and therefore we have a right to see all home games on local television. Not everyone is physically able to attend games due to health, hospitalized, economy and many reasons.
