Bucs fans, getting an empty feeling at home games?

TAMPA — The Bucs are coming off their lowest attendance since Raymond James Stadium opened in 1998.

The crowd of 40,038 for the Bucs’ 30-27 win over Arizona Sunday dropped Tampa Bay’s average home attendance to 50,361, third-worst in the NFL ahead of only the winless Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Chargers, who play in a 30,000-seat soccer stadium.

Bucs beat writer/pro sports enterprise writer Eduardo A. Encina wants to talk to Bucs fans about this.

How you describe your attendance at Bucs games?

—Season-ticket holder

— Long-time season-ticket holder (10 years or more)

— Occasional purchaser of single-game tickets

— “I’ll go if someone gives me a ticket”

— Seldom if ever attend a Bucs game.

Have you attended fewer games? If so, why?

(We’re looking for factors. For instance, has the team’s struggles influenced your decisions? The seven weeks away from Tampa?)

What would inspire you to attend more games?

What would you like to say about the team and its direction?
