An excerpt from Cole's lastest article posted yesterday Dec. 14th.
" The Jacksonville Jaguars (and a number of their angry fans who email me whenever I rip the town for lacking the necessities to support an NFL team) continue to make a big deal of the fact that they have sold out all seven of their home games this season in time to lift the local blackout. Sounds good, but something doesn’t sit right with this situation. For Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders, any reasonable person would estimate that at least 20 percent of the seats were empty, making the claims of a sellout dubious to say the least. That doesn’t even account for the vast pockets of unsold club seats that don’t count toward the sellout number. The Jaguars have yet to explain the discrepancy. However, one reason to play up the attendance is that it helps maintain the value of the franchise whenever owner Wayne Weaver wants to sell it."
