DOWN BY THE BAY: The Glazers also own the Buccaneers, who are 1-11 this season, and PRO FOOTBALL TALK's Mike Florio noted the team for months has been "dogged by claims" that it "isn't spending enough money on players." But the "proof will come in the coming offseason." With the salary cap "apparently poised to go away (at least for a year) as of March 2010, the extent of the team's spending on players will go a long way toward proving that the Glazers are serious about improving the quality of the team" (PROFOOTBALLTALK.com, 12/5). In St. Petersburg, Gary Shelton wrote under the header, "What Do Glazers Think Of Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Season? Well, It's Anyone's Guess." The Glazers are the "ownership family where everyone is a silent partner." Shelton: "They are Tampa Bay's Secret Society, the owners who live in the cone of silence, and they could turn a thousand mind-readers into illiterates. Whatever they may be thinking, they are not sharing" (ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 12/5).
