  • What made you become a Buc fan?

    interesting to see that there are people in different states and even overseas that have never even been to the Bay area, let alone Florida and are Bucs fans. I mean we arent a team with great tradition like the Cowboys or huge market like Philly, Chicago or New York, so why the Bucs?

    For me, I live in the Bay area and I imitated my uncle when I was young. Never had a father so he was my father figure. He was a Florida State fan, so I did the tomahawk at like 3, he was a Buc fan, and I immediately starting cheering for the Bucs. First real memories I have is when Dungy was named the head coach and my uncle told me the important of it. He was an African American, and my uncle called it, he said Dungy is going to "make the Bucs good". He instilled in me my love for Derric Brooks and Dunn (2 noles) and ever since theen I have been a die hard fan (even through the orange and white days). I still remember like it was yesterday the first time I saw the new Bucs jerseys, and then my uncle buying me a jersey a few weeks later. He explained to me the importance of Raymound James but I didnt understand it at the time.

    My hatred for Bret Favre started then too, as the Green Bay vs Tampa Bay rivalry started. Could never quite win in Lambeau but every game was great. Remember my first playoff game in 97 (I was there !!!) and the great feeling I had. LoL I thought we would win the super bowl, and then I remember the pain I felt when we lost to Green Bay. I think that was the first time I ever cried after a game (wouldnt be the last time tho, FSU vs UF in 97, and Miami in 02 brought a few tears out)

    anyway, what made you become Buc fans (and or fans of ur fav college team?)

    family tradition for me

    what sucks is my other uncle is a Hurricane fan and a Dolphin fan. So if I would have spent more time with him, I would most likely be a Phin and scUM fan .......ewwwww

      The thing that made me a Buccaneers fan was probably madden. Due to the limited exposure over here, madden was really the only way I ever learned the names of teams.

      Not really a riveting story but I've been a Buc fan ever since and can't really complain.

        but what made you choose the Bucs? colors? a specific player? picking a name out of a hat?

            I like to root for the underdog, I guess, and that's what Tampa was in... mid-2001, apparently. :/

              we were an underdog in 2001? we were basically everyones pick to win the NFC from 99 till 2002. Especially after getting Keyshawn, signing Simeon, and Brad Johnson in 2001. Thats the reason we let Dungy go, because we had so much expectations (as the top dog) but could not get it done in the playoffs. We were the underdogs prolly in 97 or 98

                Ahh i remember it like yesterday. I was walking down the streets of tampa when this old lady was getting beat up and her purse taken. There were 5 big thugs with guns and knifes about to kill her but i stepped in and was like "Hey stop it" they of course didnt take that lightly so they charged me with there knives. I being a 3rd Degree DragonDeath Taijutsu belt managed to fend off 3 of them but one stabbed me. I thought i was dead until Derrick Brooks and Warren Sapp came and speared them to the ground. After they killed the other 2 we helped the old lady and the other 3 guys accepted there punishment. I got my 201 stitches in my side and warren sapp and derrick brooks thought me as a hero and gave me front row tickets for Every Home bucs game. GO BUCS!!!!

                  I think you forgot the part where John Lynch saved the Mayor from a dangling rickety bridge?

                      I am not honestly sure, this was over five years ago now and I can't really remember.

                            What made you become a Buc fan?

                            The Internet!

                            I've been following the NFL since 82, but never had a favourite team, I couldn't find anything that related me to a specific team, so I never chose one.

                            Being a player in England, I followed my favourite players, Largent, Monk, Payton, Craig, and when I got into coaching it evolved in to favourite Coordinators and coaches, Walsh, Infante, Holmgren, and more recently Moore and Weis.

                            I only joined the WWW a couple of years ago, so to enjoy the banter on forums and with my friends, I new I needed a team.

                            I decided on the Bucs for a few reasons, one was their not percieved as a "fashionable club", they/we, have the hottest cheerleaders in the lge, Gruden was a deciple of Holmgren and indirecltly Bill Walsh, Tampa would be a great place to see my team, (unlike mid-winter in Green Bay, or Chicago) and Raymond-James has a bloody great Pirate ship in it...lols, oh...and I love our colours.

                            Thats my story.

                            PS, fav college team is Notre Dame, because they were the first college team I ever saw.

                              Madden 2002: Best team, best defense, I started playing football myself, Derrick Brooks=favourite player. Wasn't a true fan really until late 2002 season (GB victory), then we won a Super Bowl months later.
