I wonder why none of them have their names on the stadium.  Could it be because of the blackouts (i.e. why would a company spend all that money if their name won't even appear on TV)?

Its most likely not in their best interest financially to put their name on the stadium.

Hooray Harris representing the hometown!

It'd be great to see a couple more F500 companies associated with Jax.  Where's that reliable mass transit??

You think GATE would put their name on it - after the mayor is pushing for everyone to buy tickets, perhaps he can put his money where is mouth is, get daddy's company to put the name on it.

They probably poured half the concrete anyway  ::)

I doubt it.  The games aren't blacked-out nationwide.

The games aren't blacked out nationwide, but they aren't showing losing teams on nationwide lineups either... Soooo??

Give TV a gimmick like a stadium with a winning team and a monorail or streetcar shuttling back and forth and it makes for good TV in Hoboken or Havre.

Interesting how the MSA comes back to bite us in the butt. When we finally have a "NOBODY ELSE IS EVEN CLOSE" situation with corporate giants, Tampa gets to include St. Petersburg and Miami counts Rat Mouth!

Can't you just see some Spanish galleon captain looking at that inlet and saying, "That looks no bigger than a rat's mouth and just as dangerous"?  Funny name.  Didn't realize that that MSA went that far north.

Does Tampa's MSA include Clearwater and Brandon as well?

Tampa's MSA includes Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando Counties.  Brandon is located in Hillsborough with Tampa and Clearwater is right across the county line in Pinellas.

Miami's MSA includes Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

Jacksonville's MSA includes Duval, St. Johns, Clay, Baker and Nassau Counties.

Orlando's MSA includes Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Lake Counties.

I hate using MSA's concerning F-500's. IMO it should go by city limits. If that's the case then NYC's MSA would gobble up Newark's F-500's and God knows who elses in the Northeast.

I wonder when does the F-1000 list come out. FNF made quite a rebound from the morgage crisis. I wonder how FNFIS is doing.
