  1. Ngakoue Thread: News and Notes

    Yep, give him 5 years, 65M+ guaranteed and 21-22M per year and call it a day. Has to be close if not, imo.
  2. Is a London team viable at this stage?

    Great points all around. That's why I think London is more of a random game here and there for home teams/if they get a neutral site game in the future. For how JAX is using them as a way to increase revenue 1-2 times a year sure. To move there full time I just don't see. So if relocation for JAX is a thing I think it'll be here or Canada. Not just a full time move to London.

    Considering we offered 19 in July id think it's likely higher.
  4. Is a London team viable at this stage?

    I grew up in Iowa so didn't have a hometown team myself. Got drawn in as a kid to the logo, colors, and Fred Taylor. I've lived in Minneapolis, Denver, and Chicago (currently reside in Chicago actually), and it still hasn't got me to switch my allegiance. I'd say it depends on what type of fan you are, but I don't think many people can just switch their teams if they've committed a lot of time to a team.
  5. Is a London team viable at this stage?

    It's just proximity and the fact other pro sports have been there and had success.
  6. Is a London team viable at this stage?

    I think Toronto makes too much sense if a team relocates.
  7. Is a London team viable at this stage?

    That's fine, but they've had pretty much no success outside a single season in 12 years and fans continue to show up largely and they still rank higher than several other teams year in and year out in attendance. Jacksonville isn't an ideal market, but I don't think it's fair to say they don't deserve a team considering the awful product that's been put on the field. Back in 2017 and early 2018 when they had a hint of success the place was packed.
  8. Is a London team viable at this stage?

    The Jaguars, considering their market size and ineptitude for the past decade and a half, have been plenty fine in Jacksonville. I know it's fun to throw shade but the fanbase is a lot stronger than they're given credit for. Wins/losses and playoff success has been right there with the bottom echelon of the league ala Bucs, Lions, Browns, etc. The Jaguars make a lot more money with the current 1 game in London than they do in Jacksonville. That's the whole reason why they do it now.
  9. Is a London team viable at this stage?

    This, but also it already puts teams at disadvantages because of travel. I'd imagine they'd try to group home games together, but in that case it's just put the road team at a disadvantage. On top of that, I really don't know that the Jaguars are even THAT popular there. They obviously have a decent following but I get the feeling most are just a big mixing pot of a ton of teams. People will probably go to the games, but will they even create a home field advantage? Idk...I just don't know.

    This is alarming. Hopefully Gruden really changes this.
  11. I know we've had threads on these, but we're getting to the point where it's a legit possibility in the near future. There's heavy rumors that the Jaguars are looking at an additional home game in London to push it to 2 a year. The fans in Jacksonville aren't likely to be ok with this, and given the poor performance by the organization it's in a not so great spot as far as the long term outlook for the team staying in the city. I'm not sure if the Jaguars pushing for games in London means that it's a destination they'd move to as I do think it has more to do with Khan trying to maximize money while being in a small market as London does heavily increase revenue for the organization. But if they were to move, I'm not sure that means it'd be there but rather a bigger market in the US. However, if London was a target for Shad, what are your thoughts on the viability of moving a team there full-time. Would it work? Would it be a nightmare and after a couple years it'd need to relocate again ala what's happening with the Chargers?
  12. Update: Jaguars hire Jay Gruden as OC

    I really don't know if London is it if they're moving imo. I think a London move is a lot farther down the line if the NFL does it.
