Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida. The Jaguars compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division; the team plays its home games at TIAA Bank Field. The Jaguars and the Carolina Panthers joined the NFL as expansion teams for the 1995 season. Since their inception, the Jaguars have won division championships in 1998 and 1999 and 2017 and have qualified for the playoffs seven times, most in 2017 after a ten-season playoff drought. From their inception until 2011, the Jacksonville Jaguars' majority owner was Wayne Weaver; the team was purchased by Pakistani-American businessman Shahid Khan for an estimated $770 million. In 2015, Forbes estimated the team value at $1.48 billion. The day after the NFL awarded the expansion team to Jacksonville, a triumphant Wayne Weaver held up the Jaguars' proposed silver helmet and teal jersey at the NFL owners' meeting in Chicago; the team's colors were to be teal and silver with black accents.

However, this jersey and helmet design, with a gold leaping jaguar, created controversy. Ford Motor Company, then-parent of the automaker Jaguar, believed that the Jaguars' logo bore too much resemblance to the automaker's logo. Though no lawsuit was brought to trial, lawyers from the team and the automaker negotiated an amicable agreement whereby Jaguar would be named the official car of the Jaguars, the Jaguars would redesign their uniforms; the new logo was a snarling jaguar head with a teal tongue. He claimed that the teal tongue came from "feeding Panthers to our Jaguars" — an obvious jab at their expansion brethren. During the Jaguars' first preseason game teal-colored candies were handed out to all the fans who attended, turning their tongues a teal color just like on the logo. Additionally, raspberry lollipops were handed out by the "Candy Man" in section 142 to turn the home fans' tongues teal. In 2009, Weaver announced the team's image; this meant the elimination of the full-body crawling Jaguar logo, the clawing Jaguar, the two previous wordmarks which bent the text around these logos.

In February 2013, Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, who had acquired the team in late 2011, introduced a new brand identity for the team that included a new logo and secondary logo. The new Jaguar head logo was intended to be more realistic; the secondary logo incorporated the new Jaguar head logo along with the first official usage of the team's popular nickname "Jags". The two images were encased in a shield-style shape, designed to be a tribute to Jacksonville's military community. Beginning in 2013, the Jaguars began to feature gold more prominently than in the past. In fact, from 2009 -- 12 gold had only been used as a minor accent color. For most of their history, the Jaguars have done what many other NFL teams located in subtropical climates traditionally practice: wear their white jerseys at home during the first half of the season — forcing opponents to wear their dark ones under the sweltering autumns in Jacksonville; the only exceptions were in 2004 and 2008–10, when the Jaguars chose to wear teal for all home games.

In the preseason, the Jaguars wear teal at home since these games are played at night when there is little advantage with the heat. Following the logo change, the redesigned uniforms featured an all-black helmet, white pants with teal and gold stripes, numbers with gold inner trim and black outer trim; the home jersey was teal with white numbers and the away jersey was white with teal numbers. Both jerseys had no sleeve stripes. A prowling jaguar on each sleeve replaced the leaping jaguar going across both shoulders in the original design; the Jaguars in 1995 were the first NFL team to have 2-tone borders on their numbers and lettering, the first NFL team to show a complex logo on the sleeve. Minor modifications were introduced to the Jaguars uniform during this time, most notably the font of the jersey numbers, replacing the original block numbers with a unique font. Two stripes were added to the end of the sleeves below the prowling jaguar. During this period, the Jaguars made minor changes to their uniform, each time adding more black to the look.

The team introduced a black alternate jersey in 2002. During that same year, the team introduced alternate black pants, worn with either the white or the teal jersey. After the black pants were introduced, the white pants would only be seen for the first few games of the year due to the heat; the black pants included two teal stripes down each side. The fan reaction to the extra black in the alternate jersey and alternate pants was positive, so in 2004 the Jaguars went through a formal uniform change, which teams are only allowed to do once every five years; these changes were to the away look. Before 2004, the white away jerseys had teal numbers with black and gold trim, but after, the white jerseys had black numbers with teal and gold trim; the black pants were changed. The teal stripes were replaced with the Jaguar logo on each hip. Teal disappeared from the away uniform; the stripes on the white pants were altered in 2008 so that the center, thickest stripe was black, its accents were teal. In the 2008 year, the gold in the uniforms noticeably shifted from a bright yellow metallic appearance to more beige.

The Jaguars unveiled new uniforms for the 2009 season. Team owner Wayne Weaver wanted to "clean up" the look, feeling that the team had too many uniform styles; the new uniforms were introduced in a press
