Jaguars Say “No” To NFL’s New Relaxed Blackout Rules

The Jaguars have declined to adopt the NFL’s new relaxed blackout policies.

“We have not finalized our blackout number yet, but it will be the same as last year, or very close, to accomodate some seating initiatives we are considering unrelated to the blackout issue,” team president Mark Lamping said.

The Jaguars have not had a blackout since the 2009 season in which nine of 10 home games, including two preseason games, were blacked out on local television. For the past two seasons, the team avoided blackouts but did not have any true sellouts either.

This year, the NFL allowed the option for teams lower their blackout blackout limit to at least 85 percent of non-premium seats. Teams that choose that option and sell out will have to share revenue with the visiting team for all seats above their blackout target.
