There are some teams having trouble selling home game tickets, Source's close to the organization are saying that the Jag's financial problems are growing bigger and bigger as the years pass and it isn't getting any better.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have blackout every preseason game this year due to the lack of fan attendance, yes I understand paying full price to watch the starters play a 1/4 of the game is a little ridiculous should be able to go see a preseason game for a discount since you will have discount players on the field.

Now its looking like the team will have to black out home games for the regular season which has not happen to any franchise in the National Football League in some time, with all the trouble the Jag's have not putting the fans in the stands and not selling team apparel the team could start looking for another city to call home.

The San Diego Chargers game this pass saturday was also blacked out due to the lack of sale's and the N.F.L policy on blacking out games is a little ridiculous but i dont think a team in the league that has made the playoffs almost every year should not have a problem having any regular season games blacked out.

The policy of the N.F.L is some form of blackmail for die hard fans it's either go to the game or miss out and catch it on the four letter station on the tube, what the N.F.L thinks its doing upholding the Blackout policy is most likely gonna hurt them in the long run with the way the economy is shaping out to be they are gonna lose out on alot of fan support and with the U.F.L coming soon this could be what makes the United Football League and breaks the National Football League.
