The Buccaneers, one of the teams about which there has been concern regarding possible local blackouts, aren’t worried about their regular-season opener not being televised in the Tampa area.
According to Pewter Report, the Bucs expect to sell out Sunday’s home game.
That said, a sellout has not yet been declared.
Moreover, the visiting team is America’s team, the Dallas Cowboys.
So even with the ability of the ‘Boys to draw fans to road games, the fact that tickets still remain to be sold doesn’t bode well for some of the other games on the home schedule.
The Bucs have only seven regular-season home games this year, because one of the games that otherwise would have been played at Raymond James Stadium will instead be played in London.
