    The Jaguars are expecting sparse attendance for the home preseason opener with Tampa Bay on Saturday night, and as Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union reports, it will only be the first of 10 blackouts this season. That means Jaguars fans, those in Jacksonville anyway, have three options: buy tickets, get out of town (75 miles or more to avoid the blackout zone) or enjoy highlights on the local news Sunday nights. "It's always nice to have a big fan base out there, but when you don't have it, the show must go on,'' defensive end Reggie Hayward told Stellino. "We still have a job to do. We still have a lot of people who are supporting us, maybe they're not there physically, but they're there in spirit. We've still got to get the job done. You've got to understand what the economy is and how it's difficult for people to get out and spend that extra money on football and things of leisure."
