    Everbank agreed to a stadium naming rights deal. At least we have that going for us at not having a naming sponsor was getting pretty embarrassing.

    Not building a new stadium, just a new name.

    Relatively new in regard to larger banks. Based in Jax. Just acquired a couple different banks in the Tampa area. Great partner for the Jags as its a local, up and coming bank.

    So, now, the City Council is threatening to vote down the Everbank deal because, as part of the deal, the City must formally agree to waive its right to 25% of the sponsorship dollars. This City can't get out of its own way. Drives me fucking crazy. If the deal goes through, we will likely not have a blackout problem this year.

    How would a sponsor change the fact that more fans would show up, thus not having a blackout?

    Re: Jag Fans - new stadium name

    In this instance, they'd likely buy quite a few of the remaining tickets. The Jags are pretty close to not being blacked out at all this year, so Everbank would likely lend a hand.

    Clemsonjag, the city, as I understand it, just wants assurances that the Jags are here to stay. They are trying to implement a clause where Weaver or the Jags would owe the city of Jacksonville a large sum of money if they leave. Also, you know anything about some big news coming? Vic keeps alluding to it, but I have no clue what he's talking about.

    Not exactly but you are on the right track. Everbank pays additional money for a sold out stadium.

    Re: Jag Fans - new stadium name

    Ok that makes since if they buy up tickets or if the sponsorship pays a premium for having a stadium filled to capacity. The team could offer ridiculously cheap tickets/buy them up and in the end the sponsorship money covers and makes money over the cheap tickets or bought up tickets.

    Hopefully (sorry DBL.) LA needs an NFL team bad. If the Jags go there do you think they'd change the name? LA Jags sounds shitty.

    Re: Jag Fans - new stadium name

    The Jags are not going anywhere for the next couple years. Jacksonville's main problem is that Weaver's sons don;t want to be the owners. So, when he sells, will the new owner want to keep them here. That is the biggest question.

    LA has had an NFL team and fucked it up worse than the Jags.

    Re: Jag Fans - new stadium name

    We need this sponsorship to go through for credibility's sake at the very least. The team has marketed better than ever this year, if you would have told me that our first round pick was not Tebow and we would still be less than 10k season tickets away from a blackout I would have :laugh:. I really hope it's a sign of people my age (22) who grew up with the Jags and are just now graduating and finding jobs.

    Because most stadiums have one. Other owners frown upon not having that source of revenue.

    Looks like the news probably relates to some sort of partnership with UNF/JU to sell discounted tickets to students. Hopefully, that will put us over the top.

    It has more to do with the incentives in the naming rights agreement. However, I like that they have reached out to the two local colleges.

    Which one?

    Frontiere threw the team under the bus so she could move it to St. Louis. I'm not as familiar with the Raiders departure from LA.

    The Jags might be safe, the Rams might beat them to LA.

    Honestly, I'll be pissed when/if the Chiefs sponsor out Arrowhead Stadium. I don't want a sponsor name. That's one aspect of the Chiefs and Royals I love. They haven't given in to the the whole sponsored stadium thing. (Insert also haven't won anything joke now)

    Arrowhead has a little more tradition. The team is so well established that they do not need to generate additional revenue.

    True. We did have a couple of blackouts last season. I think all the local offices and whatnot who buy the rest of the tickets finally got a little sick of the on-field performance.

    That's the difference between places like arrowhead and in green bay. Those names are so entrenched that no matter what the new name is, it will always be referred to as arrowhead or lambeau. Eventually it will happen, because their owners will get paid a fortune to do so.

    I know it will happen eventually. The Hunt family still owns the team so I think we're safe for a little while longer.

    For the Jax folks, two city councilpeople are holding this deal up: Ronnie Fussell and Denise Lee. Both of their phones have been ringing off the hook all day and Fussell's mailbox is full. Both were on board originally but I guess worry about how the deal will affect the Gator Bowl and the UF/UGA game.

    Pretty poor playing by the mayor's office to get this deal in place with having the votes in place or getting the votes in place. I think it eventually goes through.
