Jags get extension to sell out Saints game

The Jacksonville Jaguars are close to selling out Sunday’s home game against the Saints.  So close that the team has obtained a 24-hour extension of the deadline for moving all non-premium tickets, according to the Florida Times-Union.

As of Thursday afternoon, only 1,805 tickets remained.

The Jaguars have struggled to sell tickets over the past few years, but unlike other cities (including one in Florida), the Jags ultimately have gotten the seats sold and the local TV blackout lifted.

The Jaguars also sold out their Week One home game against the Titans.

This week, rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert will be starting for the first time at EverBank Field.  Gabbert started the Week Three game at Carolina.

    With the $9 tickets they offer it’s surprising they ever get this close to a blackout. Amazing.

    Cheapes tickets available are $50+

    Plenty of time to roll out more tarps.

    Come on Saints fans, we appreciate you already buying 20,000+ but can you get the last 1,500 please?

  5. jagsdaddy says: Sep 29, 2011 4:44 PM

    bradygazelle, where did you find $9 tickets?

    why do you always post that the Jags have $9 tickets? (there never have been $9 tickets)

    I bet you liked watching the Bills games last week. Did you get “lubed up” for it?

  6. jaxcliff says: Sep 29, 2011 4:50 PM

    Apparently the words “blackout” and “Jaguars” are ignorant moron bait. Of course, the truly stupid with their oh-so-clever LA comments are still to come …

    @bradygazelle,

    Poor you.

  8. gojags says: Sep 29, 2011 5:11 PM

    @bradygazelle – I know a cheaper ticket than this. Thats the ticket to your mom’s show. I am just copying a response this looser got when he posted similar comment earlier.

    Get a life man!!!!

    Thanks Mike for this “glass half full” article on the Jags. We criticize you and your commenters here when they they take needless swipes at the team and fan base. Likewise we thank you when you get it right. Good Job PFT!!

    With some googling, I found this Looser BradyGazelle’s thread

    The good news for Edwards is he will still get to play in front of big crowds since they sell a ton of those $9 tickets in Jacksonville.

    We all know your mom at $3 is the cheapest ticket in town. We are still cleaning your siblings off the wall.

    Who the hell wants to watch their team get scorched on tv? If I was a Jags fan, I’d be hoping the blackout isn’t lifted.

  12. jvillenole says: Sep 29, 2011 5:38 PM

    The problem is that people don’t care to listen. They hear what they want to hear, but don’t listen. The Jaguars have consistantly sold 62k tickets. Only in 2009, when the economy BOMBED in Northeast FL did they have an issue with ticket sales.

  13. emma333 says: Sep 29, 2011 5:53 PM

    @gojags–did you notice the date on that post of bradygazells? He’s been posting that same $9.00 dollar lie for over a year!!! Can there be a moratorium such things????? Wow, someone needs to get some new material!!

  14. buffalosaint says: Sep 29, 2011 6:00 PM

    If there’s $9 tickets I got screwed but I’m thinking there’s going to be a ton of black and gold in the stands this week. Looks like the weather’s going to be amazing 75 and sunny. Can’t go wrong.

  15. paulbrownsrevenge says: Sep 29, 2011 6:02 PM

    The Jaguars will more to either L.A. (bad move) or Oklahoma City(where people love football.

  16. wayupsouth says: Sep 29, 2011 6:03 PM

    Irony of ironies: In the mid 1980s, John Mecom Jr., then owner of the Saints, threatened to take the Saints to Jacksonville before Tom Benson bought ‘em.

    If you’re an owner, a player, an employee, or a fan, where would you rather be? Landlocked in the middle of the US in a featureless landscape or on the coast in California. Think about that.

    Once they get rolling with Gabbert, they be fine. He is gold. But they need to get him some NFL caliber receivers.

    God Lee …I love the jags but we got to stop being so touchy….

  20. wmthomas3 says: Sep 29, 2011 7:40 PM

    Even if the Jags didn’t sell the 1800 tickets they would still have more people attending their game than a quarter of the NFL teams. Real people not corporate tickets purchased with no attendance.

    Well not really.

    2003- 56,213
    2002-56,217

    But that is OK…….you remain positive.

    I agree. I especially love it when a story is about bad ticket sales with some other team and Jags fans jump on to complain about how they are being mistreated.

    Yeah, but the owners prefer those unshared corporate dollars. And that is the truth……

    For the owner this is the stat that matters, from Wiki because I am lazy tonight:

    “If the Greater Los Angeles CSA were counted as a country it would have the 15th largest economy in the world in terms of nominal GDP, placing it just below Australia and above the Netherlands, Turkey, Sweden, Belgium, and Indonesia. The Los Angeles-Long Beach-Riverside combined statistical area (CSA) also has a gross metropolitan product (GMP) of $831 billion (as of 2008), which makes it the third largest economic center in the world, after the Greater Tokyo Area and the New York-Newark-Bridgeport CSA.”

    People like jag fans cry and yell about their mistreatment about ticket sales on other teams articles because of jerks like you who act like they have an agenda towards our team and city. Stop acting like you’re a jilted lover who wants revenge on his former girlfriend because you always go out of your way to diss our fanbase at the same time be sypathetic to fanbases like the chargers. Find something better to do with your time instead of beating your chest trying to throw stones at our fanbase. WE get it you don’t like our team or city so please be a grown up and do something better with your time instead of always posting crap about our team. If you stop posting comments about our team me nor any other jag fans will miss you.

    PFT is slowly starting to give up the negative Jax spin (actually some neutral journalistic articles lately as I check the Jaguar section)

    Slowly, as the recon and his band of trolls are reduced to regurgitated soundbites of 9 dollar tickets….tarps….and googling 2002 attendance (its 2011)…..the facts start to take over and this all begins to go away…..another 62K in the stands this weekend…….meanwhile the Jags will continue to improve with a kid who looks like a legit franchise QB, something they’ve havent has since, well, 2002. Consistent winning will bury this weak argument for good. You see, when the Jaguars were really good in the mid-late 90s, there were frequently 70K in the stadium. I know, I was there. Even before they fitted the stadium to the market size (TARPS!!!) And the city has grown signicantly in population and status…..(ever hear of Fidelity? They moved their corporate group here from CA) with a whole generation of Jaguar fans who were born when the team came to town. They are are getting old enough to buy their own tickets. Take the Jags off the stupid move list. It aint happenin. In the next few years it is going to be very good to be a Jaguar fan.

  30. slawsc says: Sep 30, 2011 8:40 AM

    Well, I decided to buy my Jags tickets this week. I mean I have some $, but since we get all the teams not able to sell seats in their home towns and let them come and play in Jacksonville (San Diego, Tampa, Cincy) it is hard for me to support 4 teams in this town.

  31. recon163 says: Sep 30, 2011 9:32 AM

    @ egetto:

    “regurgitated soundbites of 9 dollar tickets”

    I think it is hilarious how much bradyg spins up the Jags fan base with this. Clearly it is not true, but you guys go into apoplexy over it.

    “and googling 2002 attendance (its 2011) ”

    So one should only discuss this year? Then can we let go of the Jags had no blackouts last season argument as well?

    “…..another 62K in the stands this weekend…”

    After another extension.

    “Take the Jags off the stupid move list.”

    Not gonna happen as long as you need ticket sales extensions. 2 games, 2 extensions in 2011.

    “People like jag fans cry and yell about their mistreatment about ticket sales on other teams articles because of jerks like you who act like they have an agenda towards our team and city.”

    I try to just focus on the facts, but do admit I have been known to denigrate the town on occasion. Sorry……

    “Stop acting like you’re a jilted lover who wants revenge on his former girlfriend because you always go out of your way to diss our fanbase at the same time be sypathetic to fanbases like the chargers.”

    I can understand why the Charger fans don’t attend the game with the owner threatening to move the team. And they do have a litany of other problems.

    For the Jags it is pretty clear. Your owner won’t move the team until he moves along. But he still has to conduct a “JVille vs the World” campaign to avoid blackouts. You guys have stability and still struggle with ticket sales and have done so for many years.

    And I do find the JVille fans sensitivity humorous.

  33. nationalmediacansuckit says: Sep 30, 2011 12:07 PM

    Why do you guys continue to acknowledge and respond to the same 2-3 people who write on every Jag post. Why care what their opinion is. They copy and paste the same opinion over and over. So what. They know nothing about Jax. They are irrelavant. If Blaine Gabbert establishes himself as a we hope then this is a non-story. A QB can change an entire organization. Just ask Colts, Patriots, Saints, Chargers, Falcons, Texans, etc fans.

  34. writesomemorecrap says: Sep 30, 2011 2:40 PM

    @recon163…..So, the Jags ask for an extension when they are this close to selling out, but we get the same BS from you and everyone else that doesn’t know anything about this city or organization. You only know what your feeble mind is able to absorb from biased web sites. In closing, I guess Miami, the Bucs, Cincy, St. Louis, and oh no the Chargers don’t get tagged from you although they too have asked for extensions on home games this year. Matter of fact, the Chargers asked for an extension for the home game this week and still didn’t sell the tickets. Go blow TOOL !!!
