Blackouts


Last year the Jaguars and Chargers faced season blackouts with the exception of a few games between the two.  Other teams such as the Rams faced several games that were blacked out as well.  The NFL offered free local viewing to some cities for the games that were blacked out in order to try to save some interest.  However last August it looked as if 12 teams were going to face season blackouts because of the recession.  The cities fans pulled together and were able to keep there teams safe for most games.  This year again it looks like there will be several teams who will face blackouts.  Tampa Bay owners are all but certain that this year their season will be blacked out.  So really my point is, why does the national media drum on us so bad.  With so many teams hurting last year from lack of ticket sales, Jax was hardly the only one to write about.  With that, Jacksonville was a very hard hit city by the recession; add in that we have such a large stadium it is no wonder we had a hard time filling it.  Now we are close to lifting the blackouts; not just for this year but for the next three.  Are there any sports writers out there that want the Jaguars to succeed and stay in this football town.  With the exception of a few eccentric Sharks fans I have never seen so many people out and about supporting the Jaguars (not since the inaugural season at least).  Sorry if I am ranting late night and little coffee but I just needed some like minded opinions.  Does anyone think the national media will ever say anything nice about the Jaguars?  Have you heard of any other teams this year that will most likely be facing season blackouts?
