Here in Tampa, the Bucs had a waiting list for seats several years ago, but not now. Last season, all the home games were blacked out locally. So far this year, both home games were blacked out becuse they couldn't sell 85% of the seats.
I think a lot of it has to do with the down economy. Plus, for the past few years, the Bucs haven't performed well.
They are also having big problems with getting fans to the Tampa Bay Rays games, even when they reach the post-season. Of course, this year, they didn't make it to the post-season.
The Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team does a good job at filling their seats.
