i went through jacksonville for the first time the week before last on my way to the daytona 500 and my first thought was "this city has a football team?". i'm not surprised in the least that they cant fill the stadium. it seems that there are suburbs of houston that are bigger.

that being said, that tiny city still has more support for a football team than you'll get from the 20mil in LA. they just dont care. despite producing a huge number of athletes, the fandom in LA just isnt there and couldnt care less about supporting an NFL team. being a major tv market has no bearing on filling the seats.
