Earlier this afternoon, the Buccaneers issued a press release declaring that Sunday’s game against the Eagles has been sold out, and thus will be televised locally.
It’s not really news, given that the team previously has declared that all home games will be televised.
The only way the games can be televised is if all (or, for the Bucs, 85 percent) non-premium tickets are purchased, either by customers or by the team/sponsors at 34 cents on the dollar.
So, yes, the game is sold out. The real question will be the official attendance.
