TEAM TEAL: The FLORIDA TIMES-UNION's Ganguli notes the Jaguars yesterday held their "Team Teal kickoff rally indoors in the stadium’s West Club." There was "hardly room to walk as about 1,500 Jaguars fans packed into the room for the beginning of a new initiative to sell Jaguars tickets and stop ticket sales problems." To help that goal, Team Teal President and former NFLer Tony Boselli "announced a new ticket sales initiative in which season-ticket holders will be paid for referrals." Fans will receive "$25 for each general bowl referral and $100 for each club seat referral." Ganguli notes Team Teal began in '10 "as a response to the 2009 season, when the Jaguars had nine of 10 home games blacked out, including two preseason games." Since then, the Jaguars "haven’t had any blackouts, but ticket sales haven’t been easy." The Jaguars will "have Team Teal rallies throughout the area this offseason at parks and country clubs." At this point last year, the Jaguars "only had about 450 new tickets sold and have more than 1,000 this year" (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 2/14).
