After finding success in the early years of the Jaguars franchise, Jacksonville has been forced to watch a poor ownership continually put a sub-par product on the field.

It’s clearly and understandably frustrating for the loyal fans who continue to support them and it’s also apparently quite frustrating for local (somewhat) television stations that are forced to carry Jacksonville Jaguar games, despite not wanting to do so.

A CBS affiliate in Orlando would apparently rather broadcast a more interesting national game than a visiting Jaguars game as they apologized to fans watching this afternoon.

As the Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins were playing their game, a scroll bar at the bottom of the screen appeared and read the following:

In accordance with NFL policy, MKMG must carry all Jacksonville Jaguars away games. We apologize for any inconvenience. An explanation of the NFL broadcast policies can be found on ClickOrlando.com

Ouch.

The Jaguars are scheduled to take on the Raiders in Oakland this afternoon, much to the apparent disappointment of MKMG.
