For the first time ever, the Jaguars will have a new owner.
One day before the 18-year anniversary of the Jaguars being named an expansion franchise, the team told its employees Wayne Weaver sold the organization to Shahid Khan, a Pakistani-born businessman who tried to buy the St. Louis Rams last season.

Coming soon, the Los Angeles Jaguars? (Or the Los Angeles Mujahadeen?)
When the Rams move to LA the Jags can move to St. Louis.This guy tried to buy the rams and was pushed out by Kronke. He is from springfield Il.
it really is bizarre to understand this but how does one support and watch a club, sorry franchise when a team can be bought and moved to another part of the country?
Will this guy move the Jags does anyone think?
Further evidence that FOREIGN AID WORKS!
One account earlier said there are no plans to move the franchise but that is likely expected talk at this stage.
What is the Jag’s lease commitment to Jacksonville? I bet he can move it anytime.
Handshake deal, according to Weaver.
70 to 80 mill to break the lease with the city.
wow, if they move then JAX will lose a lot of money but I suspect that this guy will do what Glazer of Tampa did.
Hold Duval county or Jacksonville to ransom and say he will move them unless he gets this and that.
I’ll have to tune into the local news for a change later tonight and see what they say.
Halal meat on the menu soon then, EEK
they have also given the axe to Jack Del Rio. Only surprise here is that he lasted this long. He must have had naked pictures of Wayne Weaver or something.
In Germany there is a law stating that their local soccer club not franchise has to be owned by at least 515 of the fans therefore stopping those vultures coming in and moving the club or taking the clubs profit.

Who cares? They suck and the players are a bunch of criminal scumbags. Not that any other NFL team is any better, but the local gangbangers don’t need any reinforcements.
Then, Khan will move the Jags to St. Louis...hopefully.
Next up.....in addition to instant replay of questionable calls, a new twist of sharia-replay! Will they still be able to play with the old pig skin?
“When the Rams move to LA the Jags can move to St. Louis.”
There is now way Kroenke is moving the Rams to LaLa. Despite the miserable state of the franchise’s performance, he is getting strong support in St. Louis, and enjoys clean and consistent profitability.
I wonder if Khan has any friends who are terrorists? Rush Limbaugh was not allowed to buy into the Rams, but a Muslim from Pakistan can buy the Jaguars. Go figure.
I heard the Mayflower truck was already backed up at the loading dock waiting the season to end so they could bolt town......
