My guess - Khan has worked out a relocation package that doesn't require him to own the stadium.  Team is winning - offer to buy stadium withdrawn - team loses.  Coincidence?

Please tell me you don't believe this. If you seriously do, I'd suggest calling the FBI. Given the amount of money that's gambled on professional sports in multiple states, if you have reason to believe the Jaguars are throwing games (or at least trying to lose a la the Cleveland Indians in Major League) then you should report that as a crime.

No I don't actually believe it.  But it does make one wonder how teams can be perpetually bad.

It's not that complicated. It's a QB driven league. If you have a good quarterback, you will be competitive. See Green Bay, New Orleans and New England for the past decade plus.

You may catch lightning in a bottle like the Eagles and Jags did last year where your defense plays at an elite level and your quarterback is good in stretches. But reality sets in at a point.

Please meet the Cleveland Browns, the Green Bay Packers between 1969 and 1992, and many other teams. The Jaguars run of awfulness since 2008 is FAR from record setting.

The Jaguars are struggling in 2018 and have as many wins (3) as the Browns have had since the end of the 2015 season.

Even better. Since Thanksgiving of 2014, the Browns have 6 wins. They are 6-53-1.

Not sure what the implications are, but apparently the city is rezoning the entire Shipyards/Met Park/Lot J area as "central business district."

Details from the Daily Record this morning:

The City should take this opportunity to scrap segregated zoning completely and start implementing a Smart Code.  Regulate the physical realm, not the uses.

That area will be unrecognizable in 10 years! Very exciting!

The Oakland As are going to fund their own new stadium and adjacent development.

Based on a couple of things that I've heard in the last week or two, I'm lowering my betting odds from a near lock that JEA ends up at Lot J, to a 50/50 toss-up.

Fingers crossed that saner heads prevail.

Quote
In fact, the city sent a letter to Scott’s office in May requesting that the state replace one of two census tracts located on the Westside that had been identified as an opportunity zones with one that included the sports entertainment district because it “includes the City’s stadium and is a linchpin to supporting Mayor Curry’s downtown redevelopment efforts.” The city wanted to replace the other Westside census tract with one that covers part of the St. Nicholas neighborhood as well as I-95 and Phillips Highway.

Perfect example of 'reverse Robin Hood' effect from federal tax legislation. Ostensibly done to help impoverished areas to attract new investment, certain tracts are selected to help the already wealthy.  This program has tremendous potential to reward the investor more than the residents of the selected area IMO. Plus it has much potential to accelerate or ignite gentrification.

Republicans put "help the poor" window dressing on a program that is welfare for the rich.
