Jaguars sponsor wants name removed from Sunday’s clown-out game

The RoofClaim.com is on fire.

The roofing business wants to have its name removed from the Week 18 Jaguars home game, based on the plan by fans to show up dressed as clowns to protest the ongoing presence of Trent Baalke as the G.M.

The company has agreed to pay $600,000 per year in exchange for being spotlighted for a single game. That game apparently lands on Sunday, against the Colts.

Via Steve Patterson of the Florida Times-Union, the company has sued to have its name removed from Sunday’s game, claiming that the team “has utterly failed to provide the sponsorship benefits outlined in the agreement.” The company asked the Jaguars to remove the name from the game on December 16, when Urban Meyer was fired as head coach. The Jaguars allegedly “insisted” that the sponsorship continue.

Coincidentally, we’re recently suggested that FedEx should ask to have its name removed from the Washington Football Team’s home stadium after Sunday’s railing collapse. Maybe RoofClaim.com will help give FedEx a template for tapping out.

For now, the effort by RoofClaim.com represents either marketing brilliance given the free advertising it will be getting through the news covers or a P.R. disaster by making the connection to the Jaguars more prominently known.

  1. How long until Jacksonville asks for their name to be removed from the Jacksonville Jaguars?

  2. Probably the only way any owner would sit up and listen with a sense or urgency. Because they clearly don’t listen or care about their fans

  3. If fans want to protest, dressing as clowns while still paying for tickets and showing up is less effective than not paying for tickets and leaving the stadium empty.

  4. No NFL franchise should be this much of a perennial dumpster fire. There is too much money in the League for such an awful annual product.

  5. Only so much losing you can ask a fan base to cope with.

    Two good seasons in the last 21 years.

    My kingdom for some .500 ball.

    I thought it was one good season, but you’re right

  7. The fans protesting are likely not buying up new tickets to attend. Their tickets have been bought and paid for previously, so why not go dressed as a clown? Just dont make that same purchasing mistake again.

  8. Think they are mad now wait until they have Bill O’Brien in charge of this clown show.

  9. Seems like a bad business decision. They game might get a ton more exposure due to the clown out.

  10. ….and Ringling Brothers circus is asking to be PROUD SPONSOR of THIS game .

    Not really. Their owner is so rich, one game with an empty stadium isn’t going to hurt him one bit, plus most of the tickets are already sold. Making a mockery of the organization by having a stadium full of clowns will go further in trying to force change.

  12. Maybe the citizens of Jacksonville can tell city council to not give Khan another cent until the Jags start winning. Khan cares more about getting all the taxpayer money he can to fund his money-making adventures. That takes some nerve when he has turned the Jags into a dumpster fire.

  13. “Coincidentally, we’re recently suggested that FedEx should ask to have its name removed from the Washington Football Team’s home stadium after Sunday’s railing collapse. Maybe RoofClaim.com will help give FedEx a template for tapping out.” Even if they knew about your worthless existence they wouldn’t care about your worthless opinion.

  14. A stadium of penny wise masks with liquored up lunatics inside. Think that’s a nightmare from some circle of hell no thanks

  15. I like this protest idea for the WFT as well. You’d have to modify it a bit with some dorkinesa to emulate Snyder

  16. Remember when they were a 9-7 wild card, and won in Denver against a dominant John Elway-led Broncos team? Remember when they went 14-2 and ended the careers of Jimmy Johnson & Dan Marino by a score of 62-7 in the divisional round? Pretty sure that was the last time an NFL team topped 60 points. They had some good teams under Tom Coughlin back in those early days

  17. Considering the way FedEx handles packages, I doubt they care much about the condition of Snyder’s house of crap. Pretty much every delivery I get from them looks like it fell down with those fans.
