The third Throwback game was not even close as the Panthers jumped out to an early lead and were never seriously threatened by the orange-clad Buccaneers.   Raheem Morris even sent one of his players, Brian Price, to the locker room for a particularly appalling personal foul penalty but it was becoming clear to everyone that this had become a team out of control in all aspects of the game.
