Bucs-Steelers blacked out locally
TAMPA, Fla. -- A matchup of unbeaten teams hasn't boosted
ticket sales enough to prevent Sunday's game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers from being blacked out locally.
The Bucs also failed to sell out their season opener against
Cleveland two weeks ago, making this the club's second
regular-season blackout since 1997 - the year before the team moved
into Raymond James Stadium.
The team did not say how many tickets remain unsold. Announced
attendance for the opener against the Browns was 47,211, although
the number of people in the stands appeared to be much smaller. The
Bucs list the stadium's capacity as 65,890.
