Randball: Desperate Jaguars install pools in stadium

  • Updated: June 9, 2014 - 11:37 PM

That’s one way to get closer to a sellout, I suppose.

The Jaguars is replacing nearly 10,000 seats (!) in its football stadium, where Jacksonville’s attendance has been notoriously poor, and is replacing them with a party deck that includes two pools and 16 plush cabanas.

The four poolside cabanas can be rented for a reported price tag of $12,500 apiece.

Again, the Jaguars are desperate to try anything, but this is fairly ridiculous. If you have to dress up your product so much that football becomes a sideshow, maybe it’s time to just leave.

floppy Dwyane Wade flopped big-time in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, but a soccer coach’s dive might have been worse. See both dives at startribune.com.

elite? Responding to an article suggesting he is no longer an elite QB, the Patriots’ Tom Brady said winning is the biggest measure of success.
