Tampa Bay Is Literally Giving Away Tickets to Watch What They're Calling Football
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 2018 season has taken a nasty turn.
After winning their first three games fueled by the dark sorcery of Fitzmagic, things have deteriorated quickly.
The Bucs now sit at 4-7, having handed the keys to the franchise back over to good citizen Jameis Winston.
Not surprisingly, their dwindling fan base is rapidly losing interest, so much so that the Bucs are actually offering free tickets to some season-tickets holders for the upcoming Carolina game.
Setting aside the level of masochism necessary to purchase season tickets for this franchise, this strategy reeks of desperation.
With the Bucs sitting at 30th out of 32 NFL teams in average attendance, the move is clearly a cosmetic effort to fill some of those embarrassingly empty seats.
However, the organization's claiming this generosity is motivated by the holiday spirit and not the frighteningly low attendance of just over 40,000 for Tampa's last home game against the Niners.
We're calling shananigans on this claim.
It's really a damn shame things have gotten this bad, because these fans are missing out on a quality NFL experience.
Garrr, those scurvy dogs are really having a good time.
Anyway, if this bold gambit fails, perhaps the Bucs could try some sort of local fast food tie-in.
Or maybe extortion.
