The Jacksonville Jaguars continue to be the butt of blackout jokes, despite the fact that they haven't had a game blacked out since the 2009 season, but once again will have another season of no blackouts in 2012. Jaguars president Mark Lamping announced on WOKV AM690 on Wednesday morning that all of the Jaguars home games for the 2012 season will be televised and blackouts "aren't even part of the conversation."

In the past, the Jaguars have worried week-to-week about blackouts but have pulled through late with some corporate agreements to have companies buy some tickets. By all accounts heading into the 2012 season, the Jaguars ticket sales were on the uptick and ahead of the pace from the 2011 season.

The Jaguars had the option of reducing their blackout threshold to the 85 percent minimum, much like the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers did in the offseason, but chose not to and even have talked about taking the tarps off of seats from some home games during the 2012 season.
