Jaguars: NFL schedule release provided no ticket boost

The Jaguars are one of the teams struggling to sell season tickets this year.  The release of the NFL schedule usually provides a boost with sales, but not in this strange year.

Senior VP of Sales Mackey Weaver told Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union on Tuesday that the Jaguars didn’t see a significant bump in ticket sales after the schedule was released, like they usually do.

We suspect that trend was felt leaguewide.  Fans are simply less likely to spend money until they know we will have football.

The NFL certainly isn’t enjoying the events of the week thus far, but perhaps Judge Susan Nelson’s ruling can start to push us in the direction where fans can have confidence again we won’t miss any football this year.

    Actually thats not true. The Monday Night game against the Ravens will be a sell out due to the 20k Ravens fans who will invade Jax and take over the town just like we did 4 or 5 years ago….

    GO RAVENS!

    Confidence comes from an agreement between both parties not a number of court rulings!

    Based on the turn of events within the last 24-48 hours who would have any greater level of confidence?

    No one.

    Maybe the players who think they now can get their workout bonuses……

    Definitely the legal teams for both the NFLPA* and the NFL……As more legal action from both parties is in our future!

    Not the fans!

    hey rosenthal:

    The MNF games in Jacksonville will sell out.

    last time i checked, the Monday night games were about 6 or 7 months away

    Quit hating on the Jags and write some entertaining stories.

    Jaguars ain’t goin’ nowhere!

    I cant believe the tarps didn’t jump on the chance to get their tickets renewed, it will be strange not seeing them draped over those empty seats.

    {instert any team here}: NFL schedule release provided no ticket boost

    Fans of any team aren’t going to rush out to buy or renew tickets.

    1) We are now putting 60K plus in the 73K seats every week, the team is going nowhere
    2) Strong drafts in 09, 10, and now a franchise qb to go along with a proven veteran (how many QBs have winning records and playoff wins in Pitt?)
    3) Lost a close game in Indy in week 15 to clinch the division with MJD and Garrard playing hurt
    4)We don’t care what about the national misperception of the team or town, and we like the year round golf, boating, living by the ocean, and low cost of living. Perhaps that is why we don’t spend a lot of time on line arguing with people from places like Oakland and Cleveland who research our attendance figures (really?)

    Have fun next year, we will
