Jaguars May Show RedZone Channel On Their Stadium Video Board
The Jaguars are going to catch shit for this, but they shouldn't. This is brilliant. Attending an NFL game generally sucks and takes away the best parts of football Sundays: flipping to whichever game is the most exciting, and tracking your fantasy roster.

Former Jaguars WR Jimmy Smith placed on house arrest -
Former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Jimmy Smith has been released to house arrest, according to the Florida Times-Union. He will be allowed to attend work, school and church but is otherwise required to stay home and wear an ankle bracelet. Smith, 44, was jailed on Dec. 19, 2012, on charges of cocaine possession and a felon carrying a firearm. He was originally serving a six-year prison term and was scheduled to be released in 2018, but his type of crime made him qualify for an intensive supervision program. He will be eligible for parole June 2014, and once that date comes, the parole board will set terms for his release.
