Well I just was stating the way it was reported on the TU site yesterday. I knew it wasn't 'final' due to the fact that the Jags have to sign off on it, and it stated that they were just now going to call the Jags now that they've made that recommendation.
I'm just wondering why the Jags are so hard set on keeping SMG. I'm sure there's some underhanded reason to it, but the same could be said as to the reason why the Mayor wants Global to come in. My question is, from a Jacksonville taxpayer's perspective, what exactly has SMG done for the City that would sway us to wanting SMG to retain its position, other than the fact that it would make the Jaguars ownership happy? I quickly breezed thru the proposals that were made public and like I said, I liked the fact that Global addressed downtown revitalization in its proposal. Though I know they can't say "Choose us and we will build (insert item here) downtown, but I'd be really excited if they built something like XFinity Live downtown. Has SMG been involved with or been the reason for anything being built around the Stadium District?
