Being young and stupid is almost considered a right of passage in this day and age. People have the right to exercise poor decision-making just not on my dime. As a Club Seat ticket holder I have made and continue to make a signifcant investment in the future of the NFL in Jacksonville. I am less likely to renew my seats when the public face of the team no longer aligns with my values. I have no patience for team members who so overtly abuse their natural gifts and are given the opportunity to earn a handsome living playing sports.

Please appreciate what you have been given. Please respect those of us who support you. Please be good citizens. Is that really too much to ask?
Love my Jaguars

I strongly feel that athletes should not go out clubbing and drinking during their team's season. I've seen on numerous occassions Jaguar players showing up at local clubs during the week @ bars buying drinks by the tons, bottles and one player in particular regularly buying the bar out itself in which anyone who shows up at that bar drinks free. Oh yeah, they stay until the club closes down. It's sickening. Do they not understand that alchol weakens their body condition throughout a course of time and effects their physical abilities to be able to play at their best? The Jaguar really need to consider giving alcohol testing daily before each practice and game day since we have a few members of the team who has a serious problem of regulating their alcohol intake. I feel that it's worth the sacrifice, especially on a professional high paying salary, well worth not indulging in activities that can easily damage their career, possibly injuring others on or off the field,their wellness and the teams success...basically...lay off the booze for a while guys!!!

Justin Durant is a class act. It's obvious that he's disappointed those of us who have followed his career since Wilson High School in Florence,S.C. And he should not be judged by this 1 act of falling from grace. But again, I say to you 1 and all Justin Durant is a class act.Justin keep that head up. Tiger Pride! Tiger Pride!
