Have you seen his jersey sales? The people in Florida love him and would instantly become huge Jaguars fans because they get to hang on Tebow's nuts a little longer.

What % of those jersey sales were from within the state of Florida ? And how many were sold in Colorado ?

Tebow led the NFL in jersey sales in May, but hasn't sustained that lead in any other month. Also, most of the profits from jersey sales are directly funneled back into the NFL, with the player and team getting a very small percentage.

Jersey sales don't always equate to season ticket purchases. Since 1999, the Jaguars have seen a steady decline in ticket purchases, specifically corporate and season long packages.

Ten years of losing in the league's smallest market with a fifteen year old fan base is a recipe for disaster, no matter who they drafted.

They already reach with their pick on the 1st rd shoulda invested it with Tebow. At least Tebow will sell tix or they coulda trade down get tebow and extra pick.

Nope, Tebow was not the seat selling answer for the Jags.

Here's the flaw with that survey. If Jacksonville was to bring in Tebow it was to bring new fans into the arena.

The current season ticket holders have nothing to do with that.

It would bring Tebow fans in not necessarily new Jags fans....but Tebow wouldn't play right away anyhow (outside of a few snaps a game in the wildcat). IMHO Tebow would not equal new season ticket holders however.

Teams look ahead not just til week 4 of this season.

There's no way you can say that Tebow wouldn't equal new season ticket holders though.

Here in Jacksonville it's all about the florida gators and Tebow. If he signed there instant increase in attendance. It doesn't matter what the survey says it's b.s

10 years of losing they made it
deep in the playoffs awhile back. Jacksonville is a college football town.I hate to say this the jaguars will be moving they have no fanbase.
I don't think the Jags would have to swap divisions. After all they are in the AFC South, and since L.A. is southern California it's not too terribly inconsistent.

On another note, why the hell did they put an NFL team in Jacksonville in the first place?? I'd never heard of the place until they put a team there.
Here's a concept: maybe the Jaguars should consider DROPPING THE PRICES OF THEIR TICKETS to the point that they fill the f*#king stadium up?

So what if they sell seats for $5 (or less) a pop...they're not getting anything at all if nobody's sitting in one.

They should probably try the "dynamic ticket pricing" model that the SF Giants are using. If they're playing the Saints, Colts, or the Patriots (or the Broncos...duhhh) run the prices up a bit. But if they're playing the Rams or the Lions, sell the tickets for $2.50 and beers for $.50.
fun fact:

the city of Jacksonville, FL is 874.3 square miles, making it the largest major city in the the United States in terms of area. almost twice the size of Los Angeles.

3 cities are larger in area, but all are in Alaska, and have a significantly lower population. (Anchorage, Juneau, Sitka)
I kinda hope that LA never gets a team.

Jacksonville has too much area that's why it sucks everything is too spread out.
