Jaguars to partially abandon that hellhole Jacksonville

    In order to play multiple home games in London, beginning next season.

    Do the English use the same words for "tarp" and "blackout"?

    Yeah, I really see the Jacksonville Jaguars "brand" blowing up world wide as a result of this.

    (And, I'm not one to normally make fun of "brands" but, you have to have something to work with, to grow a brand. The Jags do not have much to work with.)

    Will they have to purchase their own seats in London like they do at home to ensure there is no blackout?

    The English will love the courageous Blaine Gabbert.

    Good for them. The British love the novelty act of American football and it's one less home date the Jaguars have to sell.

    I know there's been talk about putting a franchise overseas, but I don't see it happening real soon. This will be as close as it gets. The Cowboys may some day again become America's Team. But perhaps the Jaguars can become Britain's team. I sure do wish they'd change the logo and colors, though.

    Be interesting to see how many of those home games are regular season ones.

    Story said one per year for the four years. Might be good. Give the Brits some familiar faces, instead of two different teams every year.

    The Buffalo Bills have played one regular season game each year in Toronto for several years now.

    The U.K. are our closest allies ... and we give them this shit?

    And everyone in Buffalo/WNY hates Ralph and company for it. But, if that's what it takes to keep the Bills in WNY, than I'm for it for now.

    Well, if you gave them New York or Washington, the common fan might have a chance of knowing who was playing.

    It's sort of like, oh, Liverpool and someone playing soccer in the States. Fair trade, eh?

    Actually, it's more iike some shitty third-division Welsh beer league team playing in the states.
