This is where it starts, isn't it? Asking for half a billion or more in renovations, pitting the public against itself to pad Khan's pockets with Lot J and the Shipyards.
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

Package up a deal inclusive of stadium improvements and Lot J/Met Park incentives, tie it to a lease extension and guaranteed number of home games in Jacksonville, and let the public vote on it.

The timing will be interesting when the stadium discussions do come up.

I feel like the public's support of any agreement will be pretty heavily influenced by their current feelings toward the Jags.

The Jags could probably have pushed a much more favorable deal through in 2017/2018 when we had 20,000 new season ticket holders, Super Bowl aspirations, and a roster full of stars, versus this offseason, for example, when it felt like we were going full tank mode and when there's far less overall goodwill toward the team.

P.S. Bold Events is apparently starting a drive in concert series in Lot J.

But you see, that's a reasonable decision that takes public opinion into account and makes even the smallest attempt to ensure a deal favorable for taxpayers.

Norvell being there or not will be irrelevant on Saturday. Miami will have its way with FSU.

Game day and silence??  C'mon people... anyone going?  Staying home?  What is your game day food?  Wings?  Brats an burgers?  Minshew mustache or Fitzpatrick beard?

This stuff is important...
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Should be a fun game, even with the injuries.

Much hotter ticket than the opener.

Was thinking about going, but even this morning, nosebleeds were $100 a pop.

Burgers, grilled asparagus, and the game on while working on an article. Plus Robinson is on my fantasy team. Life is good.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

In Central Florida. Enjoyed watching my fish manhandle the Jags at the bar!
