    No doubt, I am a long suffering phins fan, we have a spark this year. I think we are on the right track, we will see.

    I'm also wondering if the people protesting in front of the stadium today realize the entire Jaguar organization is staying in California for the week.

    Why would the Jags move to LA? LA didn't support the 2 winning teams that used to be there, and they surely won't support something as lousy as the Jags.

    I think this is dead at this point. Jags owner is getting ready to put too much into the stadium to abandon it.

    Just watched a story about this on the local news. There were about 20 people there and half were children.

    Heres the facts: NFL owners are multimillionaires who usually arent connected to the communities of the franchises they own. They could care LESS about fans..period!. The NFL is a slick promoting machine that uses TV and billions in revenue from viewership and merchandise sales.

    Gate sales dont really interest them as much as you might think. They are making fortunes even if they have crappy franchises....I remember the year that the Bucs went to the Super Bowl and won...the DeBartolos and the 49ers made a lot more $$ than the owners of the Bucs.

    Jax is the lowest priced NFL franchise now and its worth 3/4 of a BILLION dollars! I hate the NFL and what its become...a real hype machine.

    Religious circus? I don't see it... The "Tebowmania Circus", yes. But over the past year or so, I haven't really noticed much talk about his religious beliefs....

    That hype machine creates jobs and careers both directly and indirectly...From restaurants, to fan shops, to stadium personnel to team offices, to scouts, to drivers, to pilots, to sales reps, to ad execs, to graphic designers, to IT personnel...etc..etc..

    The owners often care a great deal about the fans. Robert Kraft is a perfect example.

    Ouch. That is all of the Tebow fans in Jacksonville? Ted Bundy has more fans in Tallahassee.

    If Tebow/"other people" would quit tinkering with his throwing motion & let him play, Tebow would be better than a lot of the QB's now playing.

    Shhesh, that is embarrassing. I love TT, but this isn't doing him any good.
