I'm actually really interested to see what kind of progress they make this season under Bradley.

Sounds like they're really trying to find ways to increase the value of a season ticket. Compare that to the New Jersey experience where there are really trying to find ways to drag money out of season ticket holders.

Good for them.

Ladies and gentlemen, the contest for dinner with our greatest coaches, Tom Coughlin and Jack Del Rio, has been canceled as they have prior commitments helping other teams go to Super Bowls.

Well at least in 2016 Jags fans will get one day off in February.

The two teams closest to my city are the Falcons and the Jags.

**SIGH**

The Jaguars want to spend $1 million to rouse fan interest...then the Lions will spend $2 million..
and prove there IS a sucker born every minute.

Winning most games at home would be the main thing that would help lure in and hold season ticket purchasers. All the other crap is fine and has some value, arguably bigger value in the case of luxury box ticket holders, but for the fans whose buts sit in the regular seats, its nice and might help keep fans but wont draw in more. If Chucky Cheez wanted to have more customersdining there (outside of their luxury birthday rooms ) then more gimmicks or people in rat suits or doubling skee ball reward tickets wouldnt be enough, Instead, Chucky would have to actually start making decent pizza if they wanted more regular diners.

The Jagwaggers are in the same boat as Chucky. They need a better product. Which, in the case of football is wins at home or at least close hard fought losses.I think they are working on getting a better team happening, which is a start.

Gus Bradley is a good coach. Dave Caldwell is, at the very least, a better GM than Gene Smith. Shad Khan is fully invested in the team and in Jacksonville. Things will get better.

Plus they're getting rid of half of the team, including most of the deadweights, and we have a salary cap this year of roughly eleventy bazillion.

I was going to be severely disappointed if I came into this thread and there were no angry bunnies .

Jags made a nice run at the end there. I hope they can build on it next season.

Just move the team already.  If you have to bribe the "fans" to care about the team and show up to games, then they apparently aren't really fans of the team.
 
2014-03-06 08:16:07 PM
I think that's actually a fan count
 
2014-03-06 08:23:19 PM
Why don't they take all that money and make the tickets and concessions cheaper by that amount?
