BUCKING A TREND: In St. Petersburg, Justin George reports the Buccaneers are "facing slow ticket sales for the first time since Raymond James Stadium opened in 1998." The team has "sold out regularly" in recent years, but tickets remain for the team's regular-season home opener on September 13 against the Cowboys. The Buccaneers in response have "taken the unprecedented steps of offering season ticket buyers monthly payment plans, seats that don't require deposits or long-term contracts and $32.50 upper level tickets for children." The team's Web site also is "advertising half-season packages that range" between $260-325 per seat (ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 8/28).
