ALL HANDS ON DECK: Khan this morning appeared on CNBC's "Squawk Alley," and said the cabanas are a "quantum leap from the man cave and anything a football fan could imagine is here right now." He said the lower cabana deck by the pools is "about two-thirds sold out. We hope to sell that out here in the next couple of weeks." Khan added of eliminating around 9,500 seats, "We were just really over-capacitized for the market, and I think this brings us down to still about above average for NFL stadiums. We'll be at about 67,000 now" ("Squawk Alley," CNBC, 9/25).
NOT CUTTING TIES: Suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was arrested Wednesday for possession of marijuana, and the TIMES-UNION's O'Halloran notes Khan on Thursday "squashed any notion the Jaguars would cut Blackmon." He has been arrested twice since the Jaguars drafted him fifth overall in '12 and has "violated the league’s substance abuse policy multiple times and consistently shamed the franchise." Khan "disagreed with the thought the Jaguars would be alienating their fan base by remaining committed to Blackmon." Khan: “We want him to get help and really beat this. We knew he needed help" (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 7/25).
