Jaguars get blackout extension

jones-drew

The Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t sold out Sunday’s home game with the Oakland Raiders, but they’re getting close to avoiding a blackout.

With about 1,700 tickets still unsold, the Jaguars have received a 24-hour blackout extension. They need to sell the rest of the seats by Friday at 1 p.m., and it’s safe to assume they will: The league typically only gives out blackout extensions when it’s confident the blackout will, in fact, be lifted.

For the Jaguars, it’s just the second time this season they’ve needed the 24-hour extension. And assuming the blackout is, in fact, lifted on Friday, it will be the seventh time in seven home games that the Jaguars have appeared on local TV.

So for all the talk that the Jaguars won’t last in Jacksonville, the local fans have come through this season. And with the Jaguars in first place in the AFC South, the Jaguars may have a home playoff game coming in four weeks.

    Wow, 1st place team needs to get an extension, is everyone helping Urban Meyer move out of town Sunday? Why don’t they just cover up 1700 more seats now & declare the sellout today?

    2009 called. It wants it old & stale joke back. That sh*t is played out dude. Here’s a suggestion. Tonight after you’re done role playing with your boy toy to Brokeback Moutain, think of some new & better material come back and try again.

    Go Jags. As much as I love the team here in Ca. I don’t want to see them move from JAX. The team belongs there and the fans deserve all the praise. Now let’s win the AFC South

    Some people are clueless….
    Its suppose to be raining and in the 40′s Sunday. We are in Florida and will still sell out!

    As far as seats go….We have 82000 seats when uncovered this makes us the second largest stadium in the NFL!! We have this large stadium to watch all of our college NATIONAL champions play!
    We cover the seats to bring it down to 67246, this is more then then Steelers, Colts and 12 other teams!
    With a population of 1.3 mil and we have 5% of our people there every Sunday!!!!
    WHO CAN BEAT THAT!!!!!!!

    Well color me impressed. After last year, I thought it was a foregone conclusion that Jacksonville couldn’t sell out their stadium, and that the team would be in Los Angeles pretty quick. Instead, the fans are really showing that the Jags should stay put.

    Well done. Here’s hoping you enjoy your team for years to come.

    Except it’s not really about the fans, is it? It’s about whether Wayne Weaver is making “enough” money in Jacksonville. That’s gate receipts, concessions, parking, etc. Fan attendance (or lack thereof) is usually a smokescreen for the bigger financial picture — there weren’t too many empty seats at the old Cleveland stadium, if I recall.

    Green Bay can – “metro” area population of about 303,000 – stadium capacity of just under 73,000 – that’s 24% of the population……

    Hats off to Jags fans, they’ve come through in spades.

    Anyone who says otherwise is merely hating.

    Wow, didn’t know the Jags were in 1st place last year?! So 2009? No, this is every year in Jacksonville, Taglibue’s city. Now get back to work helping Meyer leave town unless you’re busy w/ YOUR boy toy!

    Jacksonville = Taglibue’s Folly

    Good for them but half of the Packers season ticket holders are from Milwaukee.

    Of course he’s from Baltimore. They are the only retards who continue to talk about Taglibue’s putting a team in Jax. Tonight I’m in the backyard BBQing with my boys while you’re inside trying to stay warm in that freezing sh*thole of a town Baltimore. Outside of the Ravens games there is absolutley nothing there. Stay warm Jeffy.
