Jaguars In London: Bloggers Take On The Matter

Adam Stites from Big Cat Country thinks Jacksonville Jaguars games in London are a great idea.

The team is set to announce on Tuesday its intentions to be the host team for one game each season between 2013 and 2016 in England, according to multiple reports.

Stites says this a good thing for the Jags and their fans:

For the Jaguars, winning will go a long way towards fixing the fact that the team isn't very popular outside of Jacksonville, but exposure on a grand scale is certainly going to help as well. A world tour that exposes the Jaguars to markets such as London as well as possible other markets like Ireland, Spain, Germany or Mexico is a great opportunity for that type of exposure.

So no, the international series is not a threat that could remove the Jaguars from the Jacksonville market. In fact, it's goal is the opposite. Exposure overseas is something intended to help the Jacksonville market by providing some marketability and recognition.

With all the talk of relocation always hovering over the franchise, Stites makes some excellent points. The Jaguars need some visibility, and they're about to get it in a big way.
