What a shitshow.

Would love to see City Council put a provision in the Lot J term sheet making the $200+ million contingent on the termination of Todd Wash.

I'd love to see the Jaguars sold to a group of investors much like the Packers.  Shares could be sold and ownership of shares would be possible for fans, investors, and anyone interested in a viable, winning team.  This debacle is mostly on Kahn.  I don't normally like conspiracy theories, but I often wonder if he is allowing the current management run the franchise deeper into the ground so that he has reason to relocate.  This is a dumpster fire.

Unfortunately, the Jags aren't the only ones having a terrible season. There are 8 other one win teams and one zero win team. Going to be a lot of competition for Trevor Lawrence.  The Jags recent move to sign a kicker that has never kicked a FG in a game AT ANY level of football was a nice start.

Good point. I'd even take Justin Fields if available, but not looking like we get that choice, unless Jags trade their 2 picks for #1.

Agree. The level of play in the NFL right now is downright poor. Not sure what Joe Flacco was even doing on the field yesterday.

IMO far more fun to watch college football.

It's not too late the jump on the Miami Dolphin bandwagon. Even Tua got some late game action yesterday!

First off, I totally agree. I'd love to see more people in St. Johns and other surrounding counties have an actual stake in the team, and keep it local.

From what I understand, the problem with that solution is that the Packers' ownership structure is grandfathered into an NFL rule from the 80s that requires a single owner to hold at least 30% of a team, with no more than 32 owners per team. Given the ownership structure of every other NFL team, I presume they wouldn't be that interested in allowing a community to purchase their local team. Which is odd, given that Jacksonville as a market seems at least somewhat similar to Green Bay in terms of size.
So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey

Look on the bright side. In 2025, you'll be able to load up on overpriced chicken wings at Yard House while you wait for gridlock to clear before accessing the remaining Hart Bridge ramps.
This made me laugh. I also chuckled when they were giving their answer about how the Cordish sports projects all feature unique local brands in emphasising how all their developments differ. I sat there thinking in my head "Can't wait for Firehouse, Metro Diner and Dick's to open at the sports complex in 2024".   ;D

Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson. The Jags had a fair an legitimate opportunity to draft any one of these guys.

Nice article here:

Something that came up in the City Council meeting earlier this week is that the city and the Jags have also had preliminary discussions about a project at the Fairgrounds.
