Forbes: Bucs' value will go down

Bucs Each year, Forbes magazine lists the worth of professional sports teams. Last year, Forbes listed the Bucs as being worth almost $1.1-billion. But according to a blog post on, Forbes expects the Bucs' value to fall "well below'' $1-billion when its new rankings come out in the fall. Michael Ozanian, a national editor at Forbes, writes, "An NFL executive told me today that for the first time in several years the Buccaneers fell out of the top 10 in the league in revenue in 2009.'' He also writes, "The season ticket waiting has essentially evaporated.'' Not a good week to be a Glazer, eh?
