Jaguars President Mark Lamping: Avoiding TV Blackouts No Longer Marketing FocusPublished June 6, 2012
PR PROBLEM: In Jacksonville, Gene Frenette wrote the Jaguars were “blindsided” Sunday by the news that first-round draft pick Justin Blackmon was arrested in Stillwater, Okla., for an aggravated DUI just as the team was “building some early offseason momentum under new coach Mike Mularkey.” The Jaguars also “just began a team caravan to various outlying cities to try and create momentum for season-ticket sales, and Blackmon is scheduled to be among the players in attendance on Friday's tip to Waycross, Ga.” It has not been confirmed if he will attend (JACKSONVILLE.com, 6/3). Frenette wrote Blackmon “embarrassed the Jaguars’ organization with an incredibly stupid lapse in judgment.” There is “never a good time for a public relations disaster, but this was especially bad as the Jaguars struggle to fill those EverBank Field seats" (JACKSONVILLE.com, 6/3).
