However, now that you bring up the stats, why is the 2003 average for JAX only 53,509?! You are 31 out of 32 that year (with Houston at 10th that year).

Let's dig deeper: 2002 JAX average is 56,277?! (Houston is 9th that year)

Or 2001 JAX average is 60,442?! (Houston did not have a team that year)

hmmmmm...interesting to note that our average attendance for 2 1/2 years is GREATER than our stadium's "official" capacity...and JAX stadium is...well...NOT averaging near it's capacity.

I do appreciate the information. Too bad it does indicate who speaks out of their assumption!
Well, to be fair you would have to compare those numbers with Jacksonvilles in there first 3 years as well. When the newness wears off and a team starts to lose a few attendence goes down. I am not sure what Jacksonville's attendence was like in their first 3 years, but I am sure you will see a difference.

KC would make your head pop then....heh.

Hmmm. I dont think the Packers stadium is anywhere near the size of the Jaguars.

BTW, what is with the stadium smack? It is weak and has nothing to do with football or the quality of fans a city has. If I remeber correctly Houston has already lost one football team and I dont use that to judge you guys. Nor would i insult your stadium, cause it is a very nice stadium and a great place to see a game. The welcome from the fans was not very warm, but overall it is one of the best stadiums in the NFL.

A fair one I thought. I figured you were comparing a small market team to a small market team. THe size of the stadium would come into play in the comparison. However I get what you are saying. Green Bay would sell out no matter what. They also have had a long time to get it that way. Green Bay has a long and great history and relationship with the Packers. It took years to get there and other teams that are new will get there one day.

I remember when the Oilers could never sell out a game. I hardly ever saw a home game when I was a kid. The only time I ever saw the Oilers was when they were on the road because we could never beat the 72 hour deadline either. That kind of stuff works both ways.

all this banter is frivolous, Texan fans you need to represent bottom line. The Game is in less than half a day, you should all be resting for the ambush @ Relient. I can't go but I'll be watching and this is what I want to see I want to see Relient so loud that left witch cannot communicate the snap count. I want a sea of RED standing, celebrating and supporting the Texans.

today in Jacksonville they called it the largest cocktail party in the world, evidently it didn't help as Flordia lost :hehe: see in Texas we don't drink cocktails we drink beer & lots of it difference being we don't ***** foot around with make believe beverages we drink the real thing and in a few hours the stadium will be filled to capacity with over 70,000 screaming beerloveing Texans. Its on!
