WE'RE TALKING ABOUT PRACTICE: In Jacksonville, Drew Dixon noted for the "first time in the history of the Jaguars, a pre-season practice is set for fans of the team at Bartram Trail High School stadium." While today's event "is free, the only way fans could get into the practice was to file for a registration" on the Jaguars' website. The "maximum number of reservations, 2,500, was reached Wednesday and the team’s administrators say they simply have no more reservations available and warn that fans without proof of reservations will not be allowed into the stadium." The growing concern "about an overflow of fans has become so profound, the Jaguars are urging fans without reservations to stay away from the practice event in St. Johns County" (JACKSONVILLE.com, 7/25). Meanwhile, THE MMQB's Peter King writes if there is "any question about America's appetite for pro football, consider this: The Broncos got 21,933 to watch an early-camp practice Sunday, and the Patriots got a total of 25,000 over the weekend for two practices" (MMQB.SI.com, 7/28).
