That's a joke. Everyone knows they're going to LA!

Sarcasm; I'm a Jags fan. First a great draft and now this. Pretty good week to be a Jags fan. Just need to start winning.

Default Re: Jaguars New NFL Largest Videoboard

You guys have not been paying attention. This team is not going anywhere:

1. The owner has spent somewhere around 30 million in stadium improvements and is purchasing property around the stadium for commercial development. There are also plans to add a retractable roof. You don't invest that kind of money to walk away. The owner is committed to the city. The London games actually ensure that they stay. They make a killing with the 1 game there for the next few years, about 15% of total revenue from one game.

2. Attendance is better than most think. Jags finished 20th in the NFL in 2013 with a 2-14 team, and 28th last year with a 4-12 team. Attendance better than Pittsburgh, Tampa, St Louis, Oak.

3. The reason for the tarps is that he stadium is to large. Our capacity is about 67,000 with the tarps on. About 72,000 with them off. That is in the top 15 in the league with them on. Larger than Bears, Colts, Lions, Vikings,ect. The tarps are being removed.

4. Our team has been bad for several years, but we have a new owner, GM, and coach. We are coming. For all of our bad years, the Panthers and the Jags have exactly the same historical record. 144-160-0.

5. And it is the World's largest video board, not just the NFL.

BTW the new board will not be ready until July. Not in time for the Nigeria game. Construction started 2 weeks after the season ended.

I agree that the Jags will rebound and not be the cellar-dweller they have been.

But, you can also argue he's building the team for bigger and better things, possibly at another location in the near future. I'm not saying it is going to happen, but at this point, they are the favorites of all NFL teams to move to London if indeed it happens.

The investment he's making with the stadium and it's surroundings is interesting, but owning a team in London would be a whole new ball game financially for any owner. A team in London could easily become the richest in the league within a few years.

It will be interesting to see what happens. I don't wish any city losing their NFL team, especially Jacksonville.

Quote:
Khan, who has maintained he plans to keep the Jaguars in Florida, believes so at least in the immediate future. Khan has struck a four-year deal to be the home team for NFL games at Wembley through 2016. Since the Jags can'€™t sell out in Jacksonville, Khan, the worldly businessman, and his Jags are poised to be the most viable option to make the voyage full time across the pond.
Players would not shy away from the international brand building potential of playing in a London-based NFL market. Yes, a lot of us love the attention and the limelight. Drawing from the populous of two countries, NFL star power and popularity could reach stratospheric proportions.

I agree, I went to the London game last year. Their fans love the NFL but not any team in particular. The Jaguars merchandise sales alone would be huge. They already have a Jaguars fan club there. The logistics of putting a team in London permanently would be difficult

I don't disagree with anything else you said, but this part's just factually wrong. It will be the largest American football stadium video board, but not the "world's largest video board." The new Jags video board is 55' x 301' (16,555 sq ft). There are only 2 other sports venues that have larger video boards (though there are a few other non-sports related video boards that are even bigger):

Arena Corinthians (Brazilian soccer stadium) has a video board that is 66' x 558' (36,828 sq ft). Texas Motor Speedway has one that's 94.6' x 218' (20,623 sq ft).
