    With season-ticket sales off to a rough start, Jacksonville Jaguars management is revving up marketing efforts and repackaging tickets to add value and affordability since about 15,000 season-ticket holders ditched their stadium seats this year, more than doubling the nonrenewal rate of prior years. Bill Prescott, the team's senior vice president of stadium operations and chief financial officer, said club surveys showed that 65 percent of season-ticket holders who did not renew blamed the economy. He said the team is well off the 43,000 season tickets it had sold at this time last year for the approximately 67,000 uncovered seats at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.

    We should all go in on a section and cover it with a Texans logo tarp.

    We should take your idea and get together with some Tacks and Colts fans and buy up 4 sections, one in each corner of their stadium. We could have giant Colts, Texans, and Titans logos in three of the corners and in the fourth a giant "SEE YOU IN L.A." sign.

    Maybe too harsh?

    Maybe Zero Tolerance Entertainment should try the Jaguars. Should "raise" enough money to off-set lost ticket sales.

    Jacksonville is just a bad city, I said it.
    I barely could stand being thier for a weekend.
    I feel bad for the true Jag fans but I hope that they move to L.A.

    This is nothing good at all. I don't want the Jags moving out of Jacksonville at all, because their most likely destination will be LA where the media is and that team will automatically be getting favors out the ass and will become the mos talked about team in the NFL. I seriously don't want LA getting another football team. Send them to any other city, just not LA.

    If the Jaguars leave Florida, maybe Bud Adams will move his team to Jacksonville?

    Wouldn't THAT be the icing on the cake!

    Gypsy Bud strikes again!

    I think Brownsville would draw more fans than jacksonville. It is truly Americas taint.

    Oklahoma Jags?

    Wow, 65% non-renewals. That's gotta hurt.

    I know it'll never happen but I'd love for there to be an NFL team in Honolulu.

    I heard that the Stadium has new sponsorship from the Moore Company.

    It will be renamed from "All-Tarp" to "Moore Tarp" stadium this season.

    I don't understand. Why would Adams consider moving to Jacksonville? Even though I don't have any facts in front of me, I thought that Tennessee was a good fan base and had no ticket sales issues. In this economy, I could be wrong though.

    I guess it's time for a tarp party!

    I hope LA doesn't get a team, because the truth is they don't deserve one nor would they care about a team. It's a Laker and USC town.

    He forgot to include the sarcasm icon. Years ago, Bud used a threatened move to Jacksonville to force upgrades to the Astrodome,....which the taxpayers of Houston are still paying for.

    I believe it was last season they sent out notices to the season ticket holders that they needed to sell more tickets or move. This can not help much. LA Dynamite?
