But after a ruling handed down by the NFL, he's not allowed to do those wacky routines too close to the field. And how did this ruling come about? A Q&A on the Jaguars' official web site explains:
Brad from Harrisonburg, VA: An nfl.com article stated: "Because of the antics of Jaguars mascot Jaxson de Ville, a rule was instituted that all NFL mascots must stay behind the six-foot white border around the field at all times during games." What incident is this alluding to?
Vic: Jaxson spent a little too much time on the field for Colts President Bill Polian's tastes during the Monday night game on Oct. 22. Polian filed a complaint with the league.
I love the Jaguars' web site, and I think it's funny how the Jaguars use their web site to pick on Polian, the guy who runs the team that has finished ahead of the Jaguars in the AFC South standings every year that the AFC South has existed. (See here, here and here for other examples.) There's no question that Polian is overbearing in his complaints to the league about the things other teams do. And there's no question that Polian will keep right on doing what he's always done. Because what he's done works.
