With season-ticket sales off to a rough start, Jacksonville Jaguars management is revving up marketing efforts and repackaging tickets to add value and affordability since about 15,000 season-ticket holders ditched their stadium seats this year, more than doubling the nonrenewal rate of prior years. Bill Prescott, the team's senior vice president of stadium operations and chief financial officer, said club surveys showed that 65 percent of season-ticket holders who did not renew blamed the economy. He said the team is well off the 43,000 season tickets it had sold at this time last year for the approximately 67,000 uncovered seats at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.

We should all go in on a section and cover it with a Texans logo tarp.

We should take your idea and get together with some Tacks and Colts fans and buy up 4 sections, one in each corner of their stadium. We could have giant Colts, Texans, and Titans logos in three of the corners and in the fourth a giant "SEE YOU IN L.A." sign.

Maybe too harsh?

Maybe Zero Tolerance Entertainment should try the Jaguars. Should "raise" enough money to off-set lost ticket sales.

Jacksonville is just a bad city, I said it.
I barely could stand being thier for a weekend.
I feel bad for the true Jag fans but I hope that they move to L.A.

We could just burn thier stadium down and get it over with?

This is nothing good at all. I don't want the Jags moving out of Jacksonville at all, because their most likely destination will be LA where the media is and that team will automatically be getting favors out the ass and will become the mos talked about team in the NFL. I seriously don't want LA getting another football team. Send them to any other city, just not LA.

If the Jaguars leave Florida, maybe Bud Adams will move his team to Jacksonville?

Wouldn't THAT be the icing on the cake!

I think Brownsville would draw more fans than jacksonville. It is truly Americas taint.

Wow, 65% non-renewals. That's gotta hurt.

I heard that the Stadium has new sponsorship from the Moore Company.

It will be renamed from "All-Tarp" to "Moore Tarp" stadium this season.

I don't understand. Why would Adams consider moving to Jacksonville? Even though I don't have any facts in front of me, I thought that Tennessee was a good fan base and had no ticket sales issues. In this economy, I could be wrong though.

I hope LA doesn't get a team, because the truth is they don't deserve one nor would they care about a team. It's a Laker and USC town.

He forgot to include the sarcasm icon. Years ago, Bud used a threatened move to Jacksonville to force upgrades to the Astrodome,....which the taxpayers of Houston are still paying for.

JAGUARS BY THE NUMBERS
The Jacksonville Jaguars were valued at $876 million in 2008.
That makes the teamís valuation 28th among the NFLís 32 teams.
The teamís value in 2008 increased 8 percent over the prior year.
The team has more than quadrupled in value since owner Wayne Weaver bought it in 1993 for $208 million.
The Jaguars generated $204 million in revenue in 2007 and $27.6 million in operating income.
The average NFL team is worth $1.1 billion.

I believe it was last season they sent out notices to the season ticket holders that they needed to sell more tickets or move. This can not help much. LA Dynamite?

Good points.

I really can't get behind any team moving to another city, all things considered.

But any team that goes to LA will be hyped beyond belief. And those people do not deserve an NFL team to begin with.

Has anyone been to a game down there? I am thinking of trying to make it down this year and want to know if the fans are complete jack-offs or act relatively decent.

By no means would I want to get into any fights down there and start tossing people off the upper decks.

Yet they also support two baseball teams that are in the top 5 in attendance.

You say that as though there are people to toss off the upper decks.

The assumption is made based on the assumption that no one is willing to spend the money to move to field level.

Ya I have wrote about my experience at the Jags stadium before on here.
But basically, Jags fans are really tame and lame, only fight I saw was the opposing teams fans fighting each other.

Not much to do at all in the city,its not a very nice place.
However, I went during the winter so maybe you could go to the beach or something like that.

No. Aside from all the other professional sports teams there.... It's just more of a college football town really. Their USC Trojans are beloved and followed by so many football fans that their previous two NFL teams kept getting overshadowed.

Very similar to Austin and the Longhorns. This town bleeds burnt orange. I'm not kidding. An NFL team could never be successful here.

Mexico City Jaguars? As the Jaguar is mainly indigenous to the south American countries in this part of the world it might be a perfect fit. They would obviously move to the MAFL (Mexican American Football League) but we all know the Jags suck so that is not that big of a surprise. I bet Del Rio would actually do decent in that league ... if it exists.

You're absolutely correct. An NFL team would thrive in Mexico City. I'm strongly against having a team go out of the country. Especially Mexico and all the kidnappings going on over there. Hawaii is as exotic that I'll go.

This is too funny. This franchise will implode soon, and Del Rio will huff and puff all the way down the tubes.
