Default Preseason Jacksonville Home games BLACKED OUT.

Not even a local showing. Has this ever happened before?

And not too long ago Jacksonville fans and players were bragging about being the new Steelers.

Come ooooon Los Angeles Jaguars. I'd love to see the Steelers play in LA every so often!

Just another example of the typical poor fan support for Florida teams. The Marlins have won two World Series and don't have the requisite fan support. The Rays are in a similar position lat year. No offense to Florida sport's fans intended, but it seems the majority continue to support the team from the cities they came from at the expenses of the home town teams.

If you want to change the attitude of your football team, emulating the Steelers makes perfect sense to me. There's only one problem with that theory. There's only one team that calls themselves the Steelers, and they play in Pittsburgh!
Fail more, Jags!

They will be elsewhere in a few years. San Antonio Orlando and L.A. are all places they could end up.

Sheesh, just move the freaking team already. It was a mistake putting them there in the first place.

Honestly, that franchise should have gone to Baltimore.

They already put a tarp over half their stadium and "hide the seats" from the NFL. They can barely sell out their regular season games even after "tarping" the field.

Florida fans are the biggest bandwagoners I've ever seen...

I would actually consider purchasing season tickets...hopefully to make a small profit, and to be able to have tickets at face value when the Steelers come to town.
