(AUDIO) Fan Interference Remembers Malcolm Glazer

The Legacy Of Malcolm Glazer

On Wednesday afternoon, it was announced that Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer had passed at the age of 85. At the time of the sale, The Commish was just a teen who was a lifelong Bucs fan, while Jim Lighthall was getting his start in sports radio.

The issue when the Glazer family took over was the future of the team. Who was this guy? Was he loyal to Tampa Bay? Will he need a new stadium? After all of that was settled, the next step was how was Malcolm going to turn franchise around from the perennial loser that it was known for.

Like many business relationships, there are going to be plenty of highs and lows. There is the debate about Raymond James Stadium and if the owners got a sweetheart deal. But one thing that can never be taken away from the Glazer family, and the Buccaneers fans, that he was the first owner who brought the Tampa Bay area a World Championship. Along with that, the stadium has hosted 2 Super Bowls, USF Football, big name concerts, and monster truck rallies. Without the efforts of Malcolm Glazer and his decision to keep the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay, those events could never have been possible.
