Really? With all the tumult and rumors that the Jacksonville Jaguars might leave the city and the city terminates their lease with the team?
Jaguars owner Shad Khan is asking the same question tonight after finding out in the Newspaper that the city has found his team in default of their lease and said lease is going to be terminated.
The reason: The city says the team violated the lease by agreeing to hire SMG to manage Everbank Field.

Yesterday, the media became aware that the City of Jacksonville had notified the Jaguars that they were in default of their lease, and the termination process had been put in motion. To say the least, that's a dire piece of news for a team that is expected to move by many in the media, and a short-lived firestorm began. The reason the news was so huge is very simple. The Jaguars...
HELLO LOS ANGELES!!! ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??? * Crickets * Oh right, nobody in LA cares about professional football. Doesn’t matter. If the NFL doesn’t expedite this whole “putting football back in LA” thing, the Jaguars might just have to take matters into their own hands and move from one pro football apathetic [...]
Let's play a game. Let's pretend that you are Shahid Khan. Seven months ago, you spent $760M to purchase the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jaguars. The NFL team that plays in the league's 3rd smallest market. The team that has had so many issues avoiding blacked out home games that former players and Jacksonville mayor Alvin Brown, himself, have been involved in door-to...

He also remained productive as a pas receiver with 43 receptions for 373 yards, and scored 11 total touchdowns (eight rushing). He clearly was the centerpiece of a Jacksonville offense that...
I wrote yesterday about the optimism that's running rampant through the NFL at this time of the year, especially inside the Dolphins' organization. Landing HBO's Hard Knocks series should provide the team with considerable exposure as they try to prove their critics wrong. For the first time in a long time, the Dolphins are showing genuine signs of optimism.
Balance: Jaguars WR Lee Evans was a product under Head Coach Mike Mularkey in Buffalo between 2004-2005 where he had 9 touchdowns as a Bill. As a veteran, he knows the complexity of his offense that is currently being installed in Jacksonville's OTAs. Mularkey is known to have a balanced attack between run-pass, and wide receivers in particular can accumulate solid numbers in...
