The Tampa Bay Buccaneers today announced plans to take advantage of The National Football League's recently-passed measure reducing the percentage of general admission ticket sales needed to avoid local broadcast blackouts of home games. As a result, any 2012 Buccaneer home games that sell 85% of non-premium tickets will be televised locally, rather than the 100% previously required.

"We hope that this move, along with lower ticket prices, starting at $30 for adults and $15 for children, will lead to more televised Buccaneer home games this year," said Vice President of Business Administration Brian Ford.

The Buccaneers recently announced an initiative designed to sell-out the September 9 home opener versus the division rival Carolina Panthers that offers free parking in select lots, half-off food and non-alcoholic concessions, as well as a giveaway celebrating Ronde Barber's 200th straight start.

Ticket prices are still high! and will remain so long as NFL continues to makes billions and players make millions.

I don't see any point in paying $100 of my hard earned money to watch a game. TV is just fine, if not get the score online or on radio.

Drew Brees signed a five-year deal worth $100 million, do you think he will play any less if signed up for $10million??

I'm definitely going to take advantage of the reduced ticket prices and have a nice day with my sons watching LIVE football. There is nothing like it.

Lot's of good matchups on tap.

Even if they lose, why not support our local sports teams?

I was surprised to see season tickets starting at 300 each, in the nosebleed sections. I am going to have a hard time resisting getting a couple.
