Default This could be it for the Jaguars

per PFT

Quote:
"At this time, I would like to speak to everyone from my heart. I ask that you, please, read my words carefully and embrace them. Here goes: Folks, this is it. This is save the whale. Forget, for the moment, about kids and growing the fan base for the future. We've been doing that since 1995. Back then, it was about the future. In 2010, it's about the present," he starts.

In the most clear way possible, Ketchman makes the case that the Jaguars have reached a crisis point, if that wasn't already clear.

"Ticket sales, not the futures of David Garrard and Jack Del Rio, is the number one issue confronting this team, and it's not about next year's ticket sales or growing the fan base for 2020, it's about selling tickets for this year. This is it," Ketchman says.

Default Re: This could be it for the Jaguars

As much as I like to tease folks like Mootini about the Jags moving, I really hate seeing that happen to any city. We lived it and it sucked!!!! Therefore I really don't wish that on any fan base....

Well maybe Tennessee.

It was a long shot that we would ever see a team again. It would be damn near impossible for Jacksonville to EVER get another team.

Yeah, but did the Oilers didn't have attendance issues for several years before moving?

Default Re: This could be it for the Jaguars

I'd much rather the Jags stay in Jacksonville and stay with their current owner than anything. If anything they've proven to be a team that will have a hard time staying successful long. They know how to have quick little stints where they play well, but this is a good franchise to have in our division. With a new owner buying this team and moving them out to LA or some other city they might get a smart new owner that's all about winning that makes this team a lot more competitive year in and year out. And if they move to LA ESPN and the rest of the media will be covering that team like crazy. If the Jags have to move I hope it's anywhere but LA.

Default Re: This could be it for the Jaguars

Selfish as it seems, my biggest issue is that a move from Jax to Lax would double the travel distance and the players would have to to adjust to a 2 time zone difference instead of one. (I guess the time zone thing isn't as big of a deal. It'd be like a 3pm ish game.) But the distance is still a disadvantage.

And no, I don't see them realigning.

I wish their move to LA would make way for a realignment. Ship the Colts to the north where they belong

I do and it would be simple. Take St. Louis move them into the AFC South. Move the new LA team to the NFC West. It's not like the NFC West has some entrenched rivalries like breaking up the NFC East, NFC North or AFC North.

Geographically it makes a lot more sense.

I don't know why they would put any team in LA. The people there haven't had a team and don't care. When they did have a teams they failed. New stadium or not, football in L.A. seems to move on at some point.

I would rather see the Jaguars go to Mexico City.

The Mexico City Jaguares. They actually have jaguars down in Mexico, after all.

Also, this would be an especially great rivalry for the Houston Texans.

I'm afraid they would get no American fans for fear that they would be killed in a hail of gunfire from drug cartels.

Default Re: This could be it for the Jaguars

Where else do they have awaiting them, if they move?

California has 49ers, Chargers, and Raiders. This would make a fourth team in California. I don't think it would work.

So what other market exists that could support them?

I bet the NFL steps in and saves the day, just like MLB rescued one of those teams (the Expos, wasn't it?).

San Antonio is the only other market...but they are big time Cowboys supporters first and foremost.

Vegas? I doubt it, due to gambling taboo situation.

Pocatella, Idaho? Salt Lake City, Utah? Gary, Indiana? LOL.

Perhaps, but there are over 20 million people living in Mexico City, making it one of the five largest metropolitan areas in the world. Selling out 10 NFL games a year should not be too much trouble for them. Unlike the smaller city of Jacksonville, which has never really been up to the challenge.

Seriously. I am not making this up. This idea has been discussed in all seriousness for some time now. This would be great. The Mexico City Jaguares in the AFC South. If anyone wants an excuse to go down to Mexico City to see the Aztec ruins of Teotihuacan and the Houston Texans all in the same weekend, this would definitely provide that opportunity. This is an idea whose time has come.
