What DOES Jeremy Jacobs Actually Own?

money

Twitter is abuzz right now with Jeremy Jacobs bashing and it is fabulous. If tweets were throwing knives, Jacobs would be sliced, diced and cut into a fine mash. He's getting CRUSHED and rightfully so. The guy is a total asshole. He's currently the President of the NHL Board of Governors, which basically means he's running the lockout while people are too busy blaming Gary Bettman, instead of see what he really is: The GM's puppet. 

So now it seems that people are willing to tell Jacobs to fuck off and there very well could be some fan backlash from that. You know me, I'm always down with raging against the machine and talking down the establishment. If you are serious about not helping JJ line his pockets, then the DOY brain trust (LOL) figured we should do a post on what exactly Jacobs owns. Let's start with the obvious: 

Delaware North

  • Sport Venues

    • Boston

      • Agganis Arena Boston University
      • Boston Garden
      • Comcast Center
      • Dunkin Donuts Center
    • Western New York

      • First Niagara Center
      • Ron Wilson Stadium
    • Howard J. Lamade Stadium (Little League World Series)
    • Commerce Bank Park
    • MetLife Stadium
    • Oriole Park at Camden Yards
    • Greater New York

      • Red Bull Arena
      • XL Center
    • Bank of America Stadium
    • Cleveland

      • Progressive Field
      • Cleveland Browns Stadium
    • Nationwide Arena
    • Lambeau Field
    • Great American Ball Park
    • Detroit

      • Comerica Park
      • Northville Racetrack
    • Chicago

      • Soldier Field
      • US Cellular Field
    • Milwaukee

      • Miller Park
    • Minneapolis/St. Paul

      • Target Center
      • Target Field
    • LIVESTRONG Sporting Park
    • St. Louis 

      • Busch Stadium
      • Edward Jones Dome
    • Bridgestone Arena
    • Hammons Field
    • Dallas

      • Dr. Pepper Ballpark
      • Rangers Ballpark In Arlington
    • Sarasota

      • Ed Smith Stadium
      • Tampa Bay Times Forum
    • Roger Dean Stadium
    • Phoenix

      • ​Camelback Ranch (lol what?)
      • Maryvale Stadium
      • Scottsdale Stadium
    • PETCO Park
    • Stockton Arena
    • National Bowling Stadium
    • Edmonton

      • Rexall Place
      • Tellus Field

The fucked up part of all this is these are just the sport arenas. His concession company can also be found in airports, hotels/resorts, casinos/racing, various parks/attractions, convention centers and specialty venues. So yeah, fuck our faces. JJ is all over the place. 

Boston Bruins

Another obvious thing is that Jacobs owns the Bruins AND provides concessions for the TD Garden (which Jacobs also owns). Basically whenever a Bruins game is going on and people are chowing down $4 hot dogs and $7.75 beers, it's going right into Jacobs pocket.

NESN

According to Forbes.com, Jacobs is a 20% owner in NESN. 

Those are Jacobs' three largest business ventures with Delaware North RAKING in the cash. I'm not sure how someone wants to protest Jeremy Jacobs, but my advice is to stop going to Bruins games and stop eating food at whatever arena you go to. I know its easier said then done, but for someone who goes to 1 or 2 games a year (I am the unlucky [or lucky now?] one who isn't a STH of the four of us) it's not hard for me. 

The guy truly is a piece of shit who doesn't care about the game or the fans. The only thing the guy truly cares about is money and that's obvious when he's leading a lockout a year after the league made $3.3B in revenue.
