And to be honest, 3 super bowl titles wont change how they feel about this franchise. It will shut them up, but theyll be on stand by waiting on us to slip. Even when we first got the franchise they hated our guts, they just couldnt find anything negative say. Theyve wanted us to fail from day one. So anything negative that comes from Jax they are going to pounce it.
The general feedback up north when they announced the new franchises was total shock when Jacksonville was on the list. Charlotte, people knew, but Jacksonville? Many people didn't even know where it was in Florida. Serious, even today, most people know where Tampa, Orlando and Miami are, but for the most part, outside of Florida, very few people know where Jacksonville even is.
That is still in force today as the media, most of which were alive when those choices were made, DO
have a bias about the First Coast.
As the years pass, those biases will dissipate as a new generation of fans (and media) grow up not knowing anything different.
Other than old timers, who cares that the Colts left Baltimore? Al Michaels might mention it on SNF, but no one really cares anymore.
