Watch: Jaguars’ Radio Station Lights Terrible Towel On Fire

One thing the rest of the football world needs to know? Never disrespect the Terrible Towel. That thought was apparently lost on Toni Foxx and John Scott, hosts of the Jax Big Show on 99.1 WQIK, a country station in Florida.

Their “clever” idea? Make a video showing all the ways you can desecrate a Terrible Towel. It starts off silly but by the end, they light one on fire.

As I’m sure I don’t need to tell you for several reasons, this is a baaaaaad idea. Though the Towel’s curse has mostly been player induced, which we’ve covered before, Jaguars’ Nation (all five of them) are playing with metaphorical fire. History isn’t kind.

And the Towel does a lot of good. Proceeds from its sales go to Allegheny Valley School, which helps students who have disabilities. From this 2015 article, after Super Bowl 40, the team presented the school with a $1 million check from the years sales alone.

Radio shows are supposed to be a little dumb. But this is just tasteless. And if we look at what’s happened in the past, it’s going to come back and bite them. Bunch of jagoffs.

    Lol, you’re doing the job for us! 😂😂😂

  • Ring4Shaz

    Titans thought it would be fun to stomp on a Terrible Towel about 9 years ago. Lendale White and some other dude. Worked out well for them. I think last week was their first playoff win since then, and they’ve gone through about 3-4 head coaches, and all the players from that team were gone within a few years.

    Enjoy the curse, Jacksonville.

  • George Capuano

    I agree 100%. Bunch of bozos. Steel Curtain all day.

  • Orlysteel

    AB is going to burnem up all day anyway without Myron Cope materializing.

  • BurghBoy412

    Hmmm. This is such an old and tired move on their behalf. Zero originality!

  • Cinko123

    The jaguars are filet mignoned and peeled and scalloped.

  • SouthernSteel

    Typical Florida trash

  • Shane Mitchell

    These ignorant fools have no idea what they have done, SMH.

  • Steeler Nation

    Thank you dummies ! you would think they would learn

  • What time are they on, I’ll listen via Iheartradio and call in to slam them.

  • Conserv_58

    Never. Ever, disrespect The Towel. The fools don’t realize that they angered the spirit of Myron Cope. Hm Ha! Fear Myron’s revenge for he will get his due.

  • Stairway7

    These jagoffs are starting to piss me off. Between the trash taking and burning the toweld trash i hope we whoop their ass 43-3

  • CoachCot

    The curse is now in full effect

  • Bradys_Dad

    The only thing “big” about the Big Show is the waist line of these two morons. Let the reign of TT terror begin …. and a pox upon their favorite pets too.

  • Jason

    Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Jags will learn tomorrow.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    maybe they should each lose about 50 pounds. they’re too old to be that fat and out of shape.

  • Shawn Stone

    Bunch of dipshits. Real sportsmanship right there asswipes

  • proctor03

    The only thing going up in smoke tomorrow are the jags dreams of a Super bowl.

  • Mutatedgenome

    Obviously they don’t know history very well. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad JuJu’s to do that.

  • Jaybird

    You touch my Terrible Towel and there’s going to be a Jag who’s missing a few canines.

  • dany

    “And the Towel does a lot of good. Proceeds from its sales go to Allegheny Valley School, which helps students who have disabilities”

    Well they bought them, good deed is done so joke’s on them. Whatever happens after that is just gravy

  • Jaybird

    That saying ” you have a face for radio ” definetly applies to these two slobs.

  • Chris92021

    Keith Bullock. He was a good player but I lost some respect for him after that incident.

  • Matt Manzo

    Oh no they didn’t!

  • Mezzetin

    That’s it, we win!!!

  • Andy Pappas

    Just a wild and crazy radio show!!!! BTW when was the last time the Jaguars were relevant? Wait aren’t the Jaguars one of the teams that gives up a home game every year to London?

  • ThePointe

    I just wish it was one or several Jags players who had done this.

  • rystorm06

    Y’all done messed up now

  • Mezzetin

    And let’s not forget Houshmenzadah, or however you spelled his bloody name….

  • CoachCot

    Jeremy Hill just last season

  • Doogie

    Yeah since the Jags have 6 Lombardi’s, I guess they don’t have to fear the Towel.. Huh? what they don’t have even 1?? no that cant be true..HaH Doubt they will be getting one anytime soon.

  • Mr. Ravens Football

    Go Jags!

  • rystorm06

    Enjoy watching us win another Lombardi. Maybe once you guys stop losing to the Bengals you’ll be a contender again! Lol

  • Mr. Ravens Football

    Ha…….it hurts worst when you have such high expectations

  • rystorm06

    Hurts even worse when you’re missing the playoffs cause you couldn’t close the game against a train wreck of a Bengals team

  • Mr. Ravens Football

    Nah, I rather be put out early than have false hopes with a flawed team. The hurting stings worst when the expectations are so high…….Tebow GOL

  • Matt

    Tired of these loud mouths spewing nonsense all week (esp their CB). Looking forward to seeing Ben & co bashing them where it counts.

  • heath miller

    no clue but i will know by the end of the game tomorrow and post it in the burning towel article for everyone to call in and blast those A Holes.. HEEEEATH

  • Jason

    What kind of loser trolls other teams sites? Never been on a Ratbird site in my life. You better get upstairs your Mom says your grilled cheese is ready. And I just noticed the Flacco pic bahahahahaha

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Agreed – kind of tasteless (not terribly funny, either way).

  • John A Stewart

    The need to show it on that giant scoreboard when the Steelers are being introduced.

  • Canadiana

    The curse is on! YOI!!!

  • westcoasteeler

    I kinda hoped for this sort of idiocy so the ball bounces our way in a game that will feature turnovers. Perfect.

  • Mister Wirez

    ‘Watch: Jaguars’ Radio Station Lights Terrible Towel On Fire”…

  • Greg Payne

  • Notrightinhead4

  • Notrightinhead4

  • midnite92

    Born raised and will be buried in the burgh and when I was growing up there was God and Art Rooney and then Myron gave us the towel the pussycats are going to learn DO NOT DISRESPECT THE TOWEL!!!!!!!!!!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    On October 8, 2008, the Steelers played the Jacksonville Jaguars at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. At that point of their season, the Jaguars were 2-2-0, and feeling very hopeful for the season following a defeat at home of their division rival Indianapolis Colts. The game was very close going into the second half, and the Steelers were still stinging from a Mathis interception and runback for a touchdown. Shortly after the start of the third quarter, Jaguars mascot Jaxson de Ville stood alongside some cheerleaders, and produced a Terrible Towel, which he used to rub his armpits and buttocks. Shortly after that, the Steelers ran away with the game and the Jaguars lost 26-21. The Jaguars went on to lose eight of their remaining eleven games in the season.

    On an October 5, 2014 game between the Steelers and the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field, in which the Steelers won 17-9, Jaguars mascot Jaxson de Ville was seen holding a Terrible Towel on one hand and a handwritten sign that reads “Towels Carry Ebola” on the other hand, mentioning the deadly outbreak that started in West Africa. The next day, the Jaguars issued an apology for the incident,[54] but would go on to lose 13 of their next 17 games.

  • Ed Smith

    May the Curse be with you (Jax)!!!

  • Brenton deed

    That’s it they’ve sealed their fate.

  • treeher

    Wow, they had to buy a lot of Terrible Towels to make that video. Thank you Jag fans, for your support.

  • Luke Shabro

    I’ve rooted for Jacksonville over the last 4 years or so. Saw them as a lovable underdog. Betweenthis and the amount of trash talking coming out of Jax, Duval can swim to the bottom of the ocean. Enjoy when Roethlisberger drops 30 on you chumps

  • blue

    The WAR is on. Can we burn the refs flags vs the Pats next week?

  • KenFromNewJersey

    Just saying though. The curse is really for players. Not fans or the like

  • Steeldog22

    Idk. Player’s mom for Washington set one on fire last year. Result 38-16 Steelers.

  • TNT

    Just bring it.

  • Zarbor

    Well its one thing if someone on the actual Jags team did it but its a bunch of dopey Jags fan.
    Who cares…this team barely had fans a few years ago. They will learn not to mess with Myron Cope but I think the Steelers have all the motivation they need already. Its the Revenge tour…..first up the Jags.

  • HondoCogburn

    Was that Rosie O’Donnel or lena Dunham?

  • Conserv_58

    Jumping the shark much?

  • walter

    Now it just got personal..

  • Nathanael Dory
