BUCCANEERS New Bucs Owner Brings Passion, Enthusiasm to Front Office Its unprecedented. In the span of less than a year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have gone through three owners. First, Malcolm Glazer sold out to "Steve", an unknown businessman from parts unknown who quickly shipped the team's franchise quarterback to Minnesota. Then he gave the local tax payers a collective finger when he swindled a deal for a new Tampa Bay stadium even though Raymond James Stadium is only 15 years old. Finally, he was exiled from the NFL when he left the owners box and forced his 1-7 team off the field in the 4th quarter in the game against Seattle. To say the team and its fans have been through a lot in a short time is an understatement. Things are starting to look up for the teams and its fans though. After a short search period, Texas business mogul Mike Peters was granted permission to buy the Bucs and become the fourth owner in the team's history. Peters is a known commodity to the NFL. He served in the commissioner's office for two years and has been a part owner of the Minnesota Vikings for several years. He's also involved in the NFL community and has several connections with fellow owners. After a brief stint of chaos, the franchise seems to have received some much needed stability. Peters is known in NFL circles for his passion, enthusiasm and intensity. He's been known to have a choice word or two for fellow owners and some players, yet he remains respected in league circles for what he brings to the table. He's been labeled as "innovative", "tireless" and "persistent" by those in the league who have worked closely with him. His never say die, never quit attitude many feel will help him return the Bucs to the prominence that they once enjoyed under former coach John Gruden in the early part of the 2000's. The people in Tampa Bay deserve better than what they received from the former owner and from the team as a whole the past few years. There finally appears to be a presence in the front office capable of delivering them from the misery and showing them once again what it looks like to be a winner.
