Orlando is a Bucs town

Or at the very least, not a Jags town.

Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel takes the NFL to task for not allowing the local CBS affiliate to broadcast the Bucs-Dolphins game. Seems the NFL has labeled Orlando as Jaguars territory.

Why do we have to be a Jags town? Nobody asked us. Can't we secede from Jacksonville territory and declare ourselves a Bucs or Dolphins town? Can't we have a referendum and vote for the team we'd most like to watch on Sundays? Memo to the NFL: Buy a map!

And Bianchi is right, let the people who live in Orlando decide which team team they want to watch, whether that be the Bucs, Jags, or 'Phins. The NFL should stop treating Orlando football fans like a bunch of children.
