Jags fans launch anti-Tebow web site

Not all Jacksonville Jaguars supporters want Tim Tebow in their uniform.

Amid a failed petition posted on the White House's website and an ad by an Orlando lawyer getting attention for asking for the Jaguars to sign Tebow, the Bold City Brigade has struck back.

Billed as Jaguars booster club, the Bold City Brigade started a website, Evenifhesreleased.com, which refers to the answer given by new Jaguars GM David Caldwell when asked about a potential pursuit of Tebow.

"I can't imagine a scenario where he'd be a Jaguar, even if he's released," Caldwell said Jan. 10 at his introductory news conference.

The site had more than 31,000 clicks as of Thursday morning, according to ESPN.com: "Endorsements from REAL Jaguars fans that don't need Tim Tebow."

"We are inspired to counter anything or anyone that chooses to attack or spread ignorance about our fan base," said John Caputo, president of Bold City Brigade. "We aim to do it in a tasteful and tactful manner, which represents our mission and members."

In advertisements, Orlando lawyer John Morgan urged owner Shad Khan to sign Tebow so the Jaguars can win "for the people." An online petition on the White House's "We The People" website was eventually removed because it violated the site's "terms of participation."

Those actions prompted the Evenifhesreleased.com web site.

"... The website is a direct response to the petition and the lawyer's ad, yes. It is our response as actual season ticket holding die-hard Jaguars fans. It's not meant to be anti-Tebow as much as it's meant to show support and solidarity for Shad Khan and the team's vision for the franchise and its direction."
