    Appearing at a Friday luncheon, Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver made a clear and unequivocal commitment to keeping his team in Jacksonville, despite the current struggle to sell tickets to the team's games. "Maybe it will take us another 10 or 15 years to get there, maybe longer, but one thing is for sure: we're going to get there," Weaver said. Weaver also addressed the fact that economic circumstances will make it, as a practical matter, impossible, to sell out the stadium in 2009. "You know it's a tough economy, and we get it," Weaver said. "We understand it has affected season-ticket holders who just can't afford season tickets and are not able to renew them. Not that there's apathy. People want to be there, but they're struggling with lost jobs or mortgage payments or just basic necessities. I want to be realistic -- we won't have a full stadium this year. We will not. This economy has just affected too many families."
