Welcome to The Unofficial Bulletin Board of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Wow, the Bucs want me back....

But according to the letter, I better hurry... this deal expires on Super Bowl Sunday!
Swell, now the Brothers' Glazer are acting like 'Crazy Eddie' (old Northeast reference) or some lame used car sales pitch. Oh yes, the future is indeed bright!~

What do they do? give you a little gift card to swipe your deposit away with?
I would imagine it would be like a debit card?
Verbiage from letter:
...."If you purchase new Stadium Club seats by Super Bowl Sunday (February 6, 2011), the amount of your forfeited seas deposit will be reinstated to be used exclusively for food and beverage as well as any merchandise purchased at Raymond James Stadium during the Buccaneers 2011 season. You will not be required to pay another seat deposit or sign a long term contract".
Not sure if the beverage includes alcohol but imagine it would since it is my money anyway. I know my initial post was a little tongue in cheek but it really is not that bad of a idea. Although, I would rather have just my money back.
Oh well, I knew the deal when I canceled.

You're either gonna get bloated or floated, depending on whether you spend that amount on food or beverages. We're not talking about only two or three hot dogs per game here.

Something's fishy here. Is there a limit on what you can spend? I would just buy a **** load of merch and sell it on ebay or something.
The only real fishy part I see is that the deposit is not refunded. It gets used in concessions, merchandise, or forfeited if unused. If you take a glass half full approach to it, you can keep yourself in dogs and beer without blowing any additional cash which is certainly better than simply getting screwed out of the deposit.
I personally would use the funds as needed while keeping track of the balance. Then make sure I spend the remaining balance on merchandise during the last home game.

I lost it in the circular file .. the money I left on the table would pay for like 12 quarters (maybe)

You received a letter addressing you as "Mr. Pierson?" You're taking this internet persona way too far.
Who are you and what have you done with Crash?
And you of all people should know that I have no real life whatsoever.... :sad face:
