    First of all, that was from the pro-tebow fan site they created. Second, I don't like the Jags and I never watch their games so I wouldn't know when it was from.

    With that said, even for a preseason game thats pretty bad attendance.

    Not if it's the last 45 seconds of a preseason game.

    There was probably less than 1000 people there. Im not expecting much more but I've seen High school spring games with more people.

    They haven't had a "good" draft in years - they make the same draft mistakes every time-- nothing will change

    I live and Jax, attend games regularly, and can assure everyone the who attendance thing is a myth.

    No, I don't expect a huge turnout or anything but that was from before the rally was even supposed to start.

    I can pick random photos to convince you that any team has poor support.

    Cleveland...DURING a game:

    Carolina (top 10 in attendance) during a REGULAR season game:

    I'm sure the Jaguars would have no problem bringing in Tim Tebow...as a lead blocker for Maurice Jones-Drew.

    LOL...Not really. Hard to get it across in a message board I guess.

    I just scoff at the garbage I hear the media say about sports in Florida. (Its the same mentality that lazily - media wise- states that fans in Tampa don't care about the Rays...when polling data shows just the opposite...I'm a Rays fan so yes that one bugs me more than most....location of the stadium - should be in Tampa - etc, but I digress)

    I just know how hard these cities worked to get these teams, and the national media runs with it like its fact.

    Truth is Jags draw well...People in TAMPA love the Rays...The Magic are well supported....etc.

    For the record, My teams are the Phins, Rays, Magic and Lighning...So not really biased on the Jags thing)

    The Jags offense is beyond putrid. Ticket or no ticket, people will stop going. Money spent is gone. Burning 4 hour of life to watch crap is a choice.

    There is mo chance that the dolphins get that many people to the games, I have gone to many and the stadium is usually 75% full, not 93%

    Maybe, maybe not. I have season tickets and can see it either way. It tends to be a late-arriving crowd for sure. There haven't been any blackouts in a while either but who knows if those tickets sold translate to people showing up.

    Regardless, the Fins have 100% of the state's NFL wins this year so I'm guessing that attendance will be pretty good Sunday if the weather is good.
