Jaguars Jags say no to new blackout rule

Quote:

The Jacksonville Jaguars will not take advantage of the NFL's new, lower threshold for avoiding local TV blackouts, the Florida Times-Union reported on Friday.

"We have not finalized our blackout number yet, but it will be the same as last year, or very close, to accommodate some seating initiatives we are considering unrelated to the blackout issue," team president Mark Lamping said.

The rule change requires teams to sell just 85 percent of their tickets to avoid a blackout. The cost of adopting that policy change, however, is that those teams must share a greater portion of ticket revenues with the visiting team. That aspect of the rule was a factor in the recent decisions of teams such as the Buffalo Bills, San Diego Chargers and Indianapolis Colts not to lower their standards.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, on the other hand, announced on Friday that they would relax their ticket-selling threshold to the new 85-percent figure.

Teams face a Sunday deadline to decide on blackout restrictions for 2012.

I'm glad we're sticking to the low ticket sales. When we start winning, whenever that may be, people will be coming.

I think they are letting their pride get in the way for what's best for the team. Even if there is a greater percentage of opposing fans in the stands, at least the seats are filled. What's the point in holding onto the tickets for your home fans that aren't going to be coming to watch the team either way
