Dear Mr. Weaver,

    It's time to move the Jaguars to Orlando. Down here in Orlando it's nice having Mickey and Shamu. The Magic's run in the NBA Finals has been great.We certainly have enjoyed the UCF Knights, Florida High School Championships and the Predators Arena League Championships. But to tell you the truth Mr.Weaver, WE NEED THE JAGS! 

    Mr. Weaver, surely by now you understand that two thirds of your market in Jacksonville is the Atlantic Ocean to your east and to the north is southern Georgia where little population exists to fill all those eighty five thousand seats.                         Maybe you're aware that the City of Orlando has voted to spend $175 million to renovate the Citrus Bowl. We will make sure to design the stadium to hold only sixty five thousand fans and with our many companies headquartered here, we'll be sure to include those revenue producing skyboxes.With that optimal stadium design, your checkbook will no longer have to suffer through those blackouts where the league won't allow the Jags on TV because they can't sell out the stadium.

    Orlando is centrally located to draw fans from all directions. Now that the Tampa Bay Bucs have built their own practice facility in Tampa, Maurice Jones Drew and the boys could do their summer workouts here at Disney's Wide World of Sports. If Orlando is good enough for Tiger, Dwight Howard, Ken Griffey and Shaq then it would be ideal for the Jags.You may have noticed that your future Star Quarterback Tim Tebow was at Game Three of the NBA Magic/LA finals. Next year you could draft him, let him set up down here, and then we would have two Supermans; one for basketball and one for football.                                                                                                                                           Also Mr. Weaver, after we talked the NFL into giving us the Superbowl we wouldn't have to bring in cruise ships to house all the fans because we already have plenty of hotel rooms to house the fans. Jacksonville is a lovely city and the beaches are great but it is time to look at the balance sheet, realize it not going to change and then.....Move the Jags to Orlando!
