Jacksonville Jaguars Fans Create Anti-Tebow Website

“Never in a million years. Not even if he’s released! Not even if there’s a fire!” 

That’s the basic stance that has been adopted by EvenIfHesReleased.com, a website put together by a coalition of Jacksonville Jaguars fans looking to keep Tim Tebow as far away from their team’s roster as humanly possibly (via ESPN). 

The website was created by Bold City Brigade, a self-described new-age booster club for the Jaguars, who designed the site as a response to an Orlando lawyer’s decision to lobby team president Shad Khan to sign Tebow.

Bold City wants the team’s new general manager, David Caldwell, to stick to his guns and not bring the most dramatic of backup quarterbacks to their town.

The website's name comes from a quote from Caldwell, who was hired as GM in January and immediately told reporters there was zero possibility of Tebow joining their program.

“I can’t imagine a scenario where [Tebow] would be a Jacksonville Jaguar,” Caldwell said at his introductory news conference. “Not even if he’s released.”

Caldwell’s words were taken as a promise by Jags fans, who have been quick to remind their GM of his words now that the Jets have released Tebowmania into free agency.

Considering Tebow was born in Jacksonville, there still remains a contingent of fans who want their golden boy to return home—even after Tebow turned down the franchise’s advances in 2012 and instead signed for the New York Jets.

Yet, for every fan that wants a chance at Mr. “All He Does is Win,” there appears to be at least twice as many who don’t even want the former Heisman winner on the sideline mixing the Gatorade.

Looks like you guys have killed the counter on evenifhesreleased.com. We will be working on a fix soon.

Judging by the Bold City Brigade’s efforts, these “real fans that don’t need Tim Tebow” are growing increasingly organized in their dissent.

So will Timmy come to J-Ville? Who knows, but if he does, he’ll have the entire north end zone of Bold City brigadiers to contend with.
