JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars won't have any blackouts this season.
            
They don't even want to use the term, either.
            
And if things go as planned under new owner Shad Khan, empty seats at EverBank Field also will be a thing of the past.
            
Team president Mark Lamping says the Jaguars will have every home game on local television in 2012, and in an effort to remove blackouts from the conversation, they won't even ask the NFL for extensions.
            
Jacksonville also has several new initiatives to beef up ticket sales. Fans are allowed to bring food into the stadium to avoid high costs at concession stands. Babies sitting on a parent's lap get free admission. And unused seats are being sold for as low as $20 each.
