So, MusicMan, if Blake had not regressed last season and we challenged but failed to make the playoffs -- you'd feel differently about Shad Khan's investment in downtown Jax? Is that what you expect me to believe?
The incredible frustration with our team, I share it. However, that is a clearly separate issue. As is the crazy insistence to view Shad Khan through the lens of what has occurred in downtown Jax prior to his arrival. If you're a slave to our prior history, you might want to sit down and think for a minute and then cast off those shackles.
In a statement issued after the authority’s unanimous vote, Khan said, “I’d like to think no one believes in the potential of Jacksonville as much as I do"
MusicMan, it's high time you started believing this businessman. He has seen that we're a diamond in the rough and he has also seen that he can make serious money here OFF THE FOOTBALL FIELD because of that fact. Where others can only see us through a lens blurred by our past (still looking at you, Ennis!), Shad is not shackled by that foolishness.
And we are extremely fortunate for that fact at this particular point in our history.  A President of the United States who is quite appropriately *not* embarrassed by the namesake of our city,  and a can-do colored bwah bound and determined to make some shiznit happen in a town with an oversupply of members in the Bitch-and-Moan Brigade. My, my, my.
Bold New City of the South, indeed. Bold New City of Florida, too.
