News Article on the Jags. Sorry if its already been posted.

"Weaver admitted that his biggest concern is boosting ticket sales. The Jaguars have endured four consecutive losing seasons on the field, and their average attendance at Alltel Stadium has dropped each of the past five years to a record-low 53,509 last year.

All but two of the team's eight regular-season games in 2003 were blacked out on local television because of poor ticket sales, and more blackouts appear to be looming this year.

Although guaranteeing the Jaguars would increase their season-ticket base above last year's total of 53,000, Weaver noted the blackout problem and admitted that "we've got a long way to go'' when it comes to overall ticket sales.

"That's a big stadium we have to fill," said Weaver, whose franchise -- among the NFL's five most profitable teams as recently as the late 1990s -- has dropped into the league's bottom third in annual revenue.

Weaver said the financial cutbacks within the organization were prompted by his desire to streamline the organization and to become more personally involved in its day-to-day workings. (Jags version of Bud Adams)
