If you're an NFL fan, you typically fall into one of two classifications: those who are for Tim Tebow and those against him.

It's quite obvious where a certain sect of Jaguars fans stand.

The Bold City Brigade, a Jags booster club now in its second year, has started a website, Evenifhesreleased.com, to combat the swirling Tebow rumors, petitions, and PR campaigns.

"We are inspired to counter anything or anyone that chooses to attack or spread ignorance about our fan base," said John Caputo, president of Bold City Brigade, via ESPN.com. "We aim to do it in a tasteful and tactful manner, which represents our mission and members."

The website went live on Wednesday, a day after Orlando attorney John Morgan started running radio ads urging the Jaguars to sign the former Jets quarterback. The site's title is a direct reference to Jacksonville GM Dave Caldwell, who squashed the Tebow rumors during his introductory press conference on January 10.

"I can't imagine a scenario where he'd be a Jaguar, even if he's released," Caldwell said.

As of Thursday, the site had already received 31,000 "Endorsements from REAL Jaguars fans that don't need Tim Tebow."

With so much media attention being spent on Tebow -- and not much else -- longtime fans of the franchise are fed up, and doing their best to make it known virally.

"Obviously it's frustrating to be constantly bombarded by the Tebow-mania," Caputo said. "Many die-hard Jaguars fans feel ignored. We feel like our voices are not heard because we tend to sit back and not do anything brash and in-your-face.

"The media knows what sells. If a petition started by a random guy in New Jersey that isn't even a Jaguars fan can get that much attention, then obviously we are fighting an uphill battle. The website is our way of saying to the national media: 'You want something brash. Well then, here.'

"Enough was enough. For three years we sat back and tried to be patient as it hopefully blew over."
