Fixating on what are perceived as slights by the media is wasted energy. Our focus needs to be on supporting the team and working toward developing a winning tradition. The critics will go silent when that happens.
We as a city has done that and yet you still hear from them about we lack fans and it just gets old. Also don't you ever call us soft as a fanbase because we're just [BAD WORD REMOVED] off with the media's disrespect towards our franchise? We're as fans speaking out on twitter against others fighting for our good name as a team and city. Fan if you have forgotten this stands for fanatic and what you said has spit in our face because we are hardcore and passionate fans of our team. Not everyone approach the situation like you and ignore the negative noise but that doesn't means we're too sensitive or whiners because we choose to fight back towards them. I have been a season ticket holder of my team since 1997 so stop acting like you're the only one that supported the franchise throughout their tenure in Jacksonville.
Hey fellow jag fans i read everyone's comments on this issue and i hope i can bring my take on this situation. I agree with bullseye not only the media wants to ignore this team but they also have venom and a lack of respect for this team and city to the point they voice misinformation without any evidence to support it. For instance, we haven't had a blackout in years but we're still the face of it why because the media wants this team to wear the dirty S on our chest. Hell, even roger goodell undressed us as a franchise during the 2009 season at the superbowl but never done the same thing for other franchises like Tampa who were in similar or worse situations during their lack of fan attendance seasons. Yeah, teams like the Bengals or Bills or Panthers receives the same lack of coverage like jacksonville but never receive misinformation or be treated with a double standard like this team. I never seen another franchise that gotten treated with such disrespect from the media than the jacksonville jaguars and it bothers me because as fans most of us are emotionally invested in our team. I wants this franchise to receive positive coverage because we love our team and it makes us feel good about the respect we receive from them. So in all reality that's why i care about the media coverage of our franchise because other teams fans form their opinion base on it and it angers me when i have to hear people speak garbage about our team and city base on the misinformation the media gives them.
