    Mods, move this to the NFL section, or combine it with another thread. Wasn't sure where to put this.

    Jax is STILL struggling to fill their stadium. It's funny, because their fans swear up and down that they sell out every single game and have no blackouts. Give me a break.

    Having to buy back thousands of tickets and donating thousands more to the military just to lift a blackout? Just sad.

    Jacksonville is a horrible NFL market.

    Jags fans shouldn't be entirely discouraged. The tarps give the stadium a cleaner, more aerodynamic appearance...........and they bring in more revenues with the illustrious advertisements printed on them..........

    I've never met a Jags fan. Aren't they on the endangered species list?

    Well, at least our folks in uniform get to go to an NFL game for free. That must count for something.

    I believe the tickets are used against prisoners as a torture method.

    Well, LA is technically south. Southern California is still south.

    The jaguar fan is often described as nocturnal, but is more specifically crepuscular (peak activity around dawn and dusk).

    The jaguar fan is a near threatened species and its numbers are declining.

    Like most cats, the jaguar fan is solitary outside mother-cub groups.

    Doc, I've met one Jags fan and he was some sort of weird tool that doesn't exist in Texas. Florida is creepy, and should be sawed off the US ala Bugs Bunny.

    The best way to protect yourself against Jags fans is to place tarps over your dwelling.

    The Jags fan will inevitably stay at home if you do this.

    The place was reasonably empty to begin with and then became pathetic as the game went on. The Jags were not being blown out, I really don't understand why everyone left.

    At one point during the game, there was a pan over of the area, parking lots and stadium and the announcer made some comment about Sold out Jaguar stadium....... I lol'ed.

    I guarantee that if the Jags held a '4 Teeth or Fewer Day' it would ensure a sellout.

    Yeah, but then the ticket office would have to accept public aide or moonshine for tickets.
