READY TO CROSS THE POND: In Jacksonville, Vito Stellino noted Khan on Friday "suggested in the pregame show that an announcement the Jaguars will play a game in London next season could come in a few days" (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 8/18). Khan, who recently attended the London Games, said, "It was great to go out there and London did a fabulous job. We got a lot of great ideas for the homefield experience" (ACTIONNEWSJAX.com, 8/18).
WORKING TOWARD COMPROMISE: In Jacksonville, Gene Frenette noted a City Hall committee Friday "chose Global Spectrum over SMG (the Jaguars' preference), and that recommendation will go to Mayor Alvin Brown." A potential compromise "would be having SMG manage EverBank Field beyond the 2012 season and let Global Spectrum run the other facilities." The Jaguars and the city "appear to be building a trust that should serve them well over the long term" (JACKSONVILLE.com, 8/17).
