The Jacksonville Jaguars have yet to earn a win this season, but it looks like their losses go far beyond the field of play. According to a Deadspin report, an unnamed group of players from the team were involved in a fight in London following their loss.
The Jaguars players were beat up badly enough that they needed to be treated in the hospital.
Two Jaguars players attempted to enter the team hotel, the Grosvenor House, with six women on Sunday. This would’ve been sometime after the San Francisco-Jacksonville game at Wembley Stadium, a Jags loss. Hotel security denied entry to the coterie of ladies. This led to a fight of some kind—also a Jags loss. The two players were treated at the hospital.
In the other story, three (not two) players went clubbing after the game, whereupon they were confronted by nine (nine!) guys, some of whom supposedly wore brass knuckles. This version comes from a source who knows the players but who wouldn’t give us their names. There was a fight, also a Jags loss, followed by a trip to the hospital. Two of the players looked “pretty rough,” according to the source—”black eyes, cuts and bruises.”
To be fair, London is known for their boxers, so they could have ended up challenging the wrong people in the brawl.
It is likely only a matter of time until the names of the players involved surface, but until then the losses will just keep adding up for the Jags on and off the field.
