Default New Jaguar owner talks "real" fans

New Jacksonville Jaguars Owner Shahid Khan Claims Real Fans Are Season-Ticket Holders

Jacksonville has a new NFL owner and a new head coach. But now it also has new PR problems.

Not only was the hire of coach Mike Mularkey panned by critics Wednesday, Jaguars owner Shahid Khan is in serious damage control mode after his comments about what makes a fan of his team.

Khan explained just what it takes to be a Jaguars fan, in his opinion: "I think I can clarify at this point for me a fan is somebody who is a season ticket holder fan for the Jaguars," said the new owner. "We want to hear from people, we want a huge amount of constructive feedback. We need input, but we need that from fans who are season ticket holders."

So the implication is if you're down on your luck and can't afford season tickets in a state hit hard by the recession, you're not a true fan.

Considering the Jaguars finished 24th in attendance in 2011, that's a pretty small number of supporters.

Khan wouldn't speak on camera to First Coast News about the backlash, but his representative spinned the dis as an "off-the-cuff comment."

ouch...maybe it's part of a genius ploy to alienate the remaining three members of the fanbase to make the move to LAX that much easier?

Sounds like he would be right at home with a certain thread in this forum...

This is the same guy who gets on message boards and posts what a real fan is.

Too bad those 99,000 people on the Packers waiting list aren't real fans. LOL

32 teams - say an average of 75,000 capacity per stadium? Makes you wonder how Roger Goodell feels about the idea that the absolute best case scenario for the NFL as a whole is 2.4 Million "real" fans.

Default Re: New Jaguar owner talks "real" fans

What's wrong with what he said?

I'd say it again. If you want to complain, the least you could do is buy enough tickets to get the game to air locally. Then the rest of you morons might actually have some game action to steamroll the organization with. I want to hear what the people who actually put their money where their mouth is speak. Not Billy Hills sitting in his 10+ year old Jags jersey on some delapidated recliner, springs sticking out and all, guzzling down Natty lite like it was IQ juice taking breaks from beating his wife and children to call into radio shows to hammer the team.

Dang. Good thing I'M not the new Jags owner.....
