The Jaguars last game of the season is expected to be a clown show. One sponsor chose to rather not be involved in such.
RoofClaim.com, a roofing company located in Georgia with business in Florida, has sued to avoid being emphasized as the primary sponsor of Sunday’s finale against the Indianapolis Colts, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press.
Why would a company go to such measures to not receive the lucrative exposure of an NFL sponsorship it paid for?
The answer is things have become so bad in Jacksonville that fans are beginning to revolt against team leadership, with calls for team owner Shad Khan to fire general manager Trent Baalke.
These fans have chosen the clowns to be an avatar of their ire. They have already changed their social media display pictures to clown emojis, which features Khan’s trademark mustache. These people are now planning to show up on Sunday in full clown clothes.
This is going to create a huge scene as it sums up how far the Jaguars have fallen. One can understand the words, “brought to you by RoofClaim.com” might not be in the best interest of the company.
RoofClaim.com Signed A $2.5 Million Deal With The Jaguars In August
RoofClaim had signed a 4-year deal with the Jaguars with yearly payments starting at $600,000, which would increase by $18,000 every year. This would total up to a sum of $2.51 million.
As part of the deal, the company is guaranteed a single-game spotlight in each of the four seasons, something the company is now trying to get out of.
The deal reportedly includes a provision allowing RoofClaim to terminate the agreement should Urban Meyer be fired as Jaguars head coach. That condition was met earlier than anyone could have reasonably imagined, but unfortunately, the termination can only be used at the end of what would be Meyer’s third season in 2023.
