Blackout Lifted: Jags – Titans to be Shown Locally

If you were worried about not seeing tomorrow’s Jaguars-Titans game from the comfort of your own TV – fret no longer.  The Jaguars have announced that they sold about 1,700 non-premium tickets in about 27 hours for tomorrow’s game, and that it will be broadcast locally, as the home blackout rule has been lifted.  “We’re tired of talking about tickets,” said Tim Connolly, the Jaguars’ senior vice president of business development. “We should be talking about the quality of players on our team. We’re not down here selling souls or saving lives. We are providing entertainment.”

Fans were the ones that brought the tickets, as they did not have to rely on a corporate sponsor to buy them.  It was also made known that that one of the “fans” that did not have to buy the tickets was owner Wayne Weaver, who is given the option to purchase the tickets in order to lift the blackout rule.  “No one stepped up [to purchase tickets in bulk to lift a potential blackout],” Connolly said.  The Jags have not had a home blackout since the 2004 season.
