    It's because no one here likes the Jaguars. There are way more Dolphins fans here and they are probably the ones calling into the station and complaining.

    I was at the Tampa game today and I noticed during the tailgate that the Dolphins game was on locally in the Tampa market. The problem with Orlando is the north part of it's TV market reaches all the way up to Daytona which falls into Jags territory. The west part is almost to Tampa, so I think the Bucs are the primary team and the Jags are the secondary. In the AFC the Jags bump the Dolphins when it comes to NFL rules.

    When the Jags are home (and the station has a choice) they always show the Dolphins however. That said I bet there are plenty of Dolphins fans here wishing the Jags would move.

    Edit: After reading the article I just realized that the Jags game was a late game and up against the Manning Bowl. I can see people calling in being upset about that Jags being on against that. At least the Dolphins fans got to see their team beat the Colts.

    So basically this meant that the majority of Orlando watched the Bucs blow another game in the final seconds.

    I still can't figure out how the Jags convinced the league to approve those awful new helmets. #IntelligentDesign

    I hear ya man. Their entire uniform is a train wreck. It looks like someone took a can of flat black spray paint and didn't finish the job.

    BTW, this was what I was doing during the Bucs tailgate yesterday ...

    I agree completely. Arena leagues would have rejected that horrible design.

    I'll still take Seattle and gladly give the 21 points. Hell, I'd make it 22 if they wanted.

    No doubt. Every time I see them I just laugh. They might as well went all out and made them look like they are made out of tarps, it would have been more fitting to the teams identity.
