Most every NFL franchise has gone thru this problem at one time or another.
I remember a stretch when Jones bought the Cowboys and before their great teams of the 90s when you couldn't give away a ticket to games in Dallas.
About the only exception I can think of is Bronco fans who have always sold
out thru thick 'n thin - Denver historically has always had unbeliebably loyal
and devoted fans. Of course when you consider the Jags winning record last year and their contention for a playoff spot - that's gotta be of real concern
to the ownership & management and could indicate a situation that can't be
reversed.

Wow, that sucks for all involved. Hopefully, they get the tickets sold.

They've slashed ticket prices so low that Jacksonville has the third-lowest average ticket price ($40.80) in the NFL, according to Team Marketing Report.

:shocked ... and at THAT price?!?! Saw a breakdown a while back and their prices are pretty friggin low.

The Games wont black out. After Single game tickets and group sales we should be fine.

I must say, Jags fans in Jacksonville are not doing us proud right now.

The thought of the Jags leaving is something I have been avoiding for the past few days. The outlook so far is not good...but I think the media is making it worse than it sounds. Individual game tickets haven't even gone on sale yet. Blackouts are not predicted until 72 hours before kickoff. We get alot of buts in the seats, unfortunately, it's usually the day of the game that the ticks are sold.
I just can't imagine losing the privlage of going to the stadium and watching my team. I know many here can relate.
I just don't see why everyone is picking on Jax when they are far from the only team with these problems. And do they really need two teams in the Bay area. I say move the Raiders back to LA. They may as well leave the stadium up and running in Oakland, they will be back in a few years anyway. :bomb:

Sorry, more came out than I intended :soapbox:

It's hard to not pick, they're in the NFL news everyday with something.

Bad pub is better than no pub at all I guess.

On another note, The Texans are hardly ever in the news. We're just under the radar.

"Bad pub is better than no pub at all I guess."

I would've just been happy with the Fred Taylor publicity :club:
