Jaguars Owner Wayne Weaver Talks Ticket Sales in Jacksonville

Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times Union reports Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver held a conference call Thursday. The main purpose of which was to encourage season ticket sales.

The Jaguars, Weaver said, are 12,000 season tickets short of the base of 40,000 they’d like to have before single-game tickets and other packages are sold. The deadline for season ticket renewals is April 29, extended twice from March 18th.

“We’ve gotta almost repeat that Herculean effort that we had last year,” Weaver said. “… They’ll be talking about us again in the press saying we’re not a great NFL market. … It will send the wrong message to the national media and the National Football League.”

    Jaguars need a Cam Newton or trade for Tim Tebow. They need a player that will bring the fans to the stadium.

    People will come if they are entertained. That means an exciting team. That means extra stadium entertainment. It should be obvious to management that the team looks the same on the field, year after year, no matter how many personnel changes are made. The same look, the same predictable offense, the same weaknesses, and the same anemic performances. If player changes have no effect, then it’s time for a new head coach and a new coaching staff. It’s time for coaches who won’t settle for less than winning. These players are now professionals who are paid to be at the peak of their games. Player development should have already taken place– before they were hired. Offense and defense should be on a par with the leading teams in the league. They are not. Management and fans have every right to expect them to be.
