One Game in London Doesn’t Mean Jags Are Going Anywhere

Posted: August 24, 2012 in Jacksonville Jaguars, NFL, NFL teams

Incredibly many Jaguar fans continue to live in fear of their NFL franchise moving elsewhere. The news that the Jaguars will play “home” games in London for four years starting in 2013 has amped up their inferiority complex.

The London games are about owner Shad Khan and the city of Jacksonville making money. There’s nothing wrong with that and, if the plans works out, a lot of First Coast residents could benefit.

It has nothing to do with the Jaguars becoming the London Jaguars . . . or the Los Angeles Jaguars . . . or, for that matter, the Hong Kong Jaguars.

The Jaguars aren’t going anywhere. There are franchises that face bigger problems than Jacksonville. For the record, the Jaguars sold more tickets last year than any NFL franchise in the state.

Leaving a team in a growing Sun Belt state doesn’t make good sense. And among all of the things the NFL does well, making good business decisions tops the list.

    Why do they all have to be home games why not a 4 year contract 2 home and 2 away?

    In five years, the Jaguars will be gone from this city. It’s just good business sense to move from a place that can’t support and nurture a franchise, to somehwere that can…PEACE.

    Now THAT is what I call, “backing up the BOSS!”. Maurice might take a pot-shot or two from where he’s standing but the OWNER of this franchise has continued to bolster solid roots in Jacksonville and silence the moronic sirens of evacuation from Everbank Field. It’s obvious to me that we have a permanent and indelible presence and no amount of speculative badgering from the press will change that, not even with a trade of our star RB, if that is even in the cards….
