ESPN reported this week that the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars have abysmal search numbers on the internet. Based on Google search frequency, the Tennessee Titans rate just behind such juggernauts as MLB’s Colorado Rockies and even with the NHL’s Calgary Flames in popularity.
The data of global search traffic searched major North American professional leagues and comes from Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com. The Titans rank 80th on the list, behind four teams from the Mexican soccer league. Understandably, only the Jacksonville Jaguars are less looked for than the Titans in global Google searches among NFL teams.
Reached for comment, Ruston Webster general manager of the Titans expressed disappointment. “It’s a bit embarrassing. Clearly we have to take steps to increase the team’s popularity. I mean, look at some of these. Seriously? The Tennessee Titans are searched for less than ‘Midgets having sex with cars’ and ‘Bangkok she-male watersports’? What does that last one even mean? And no, I take no solace whatsoever in the fact that we barely beat out ‘granny tranny orgy’. This list is revolting by the way.”
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley tried to find the bright side. “Hey, cool we beat out ‘hot toe worship’ and ‘amputees in nylon’, nothing wrong with that. I mean, sure ‘Jacksonville Jaguars’ is searched for a full 10 times less than ‘bathroom discipline webcam’, but at least we’re more popular than ‘Amish Bukkake’. It just shows this organization headed in the right direction.”
