JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After the thunderstorms passed through, it was unseasonably warm Sunday at TIAA Bank Field.
Apparently, it was a little too warm for Jaguars mascot Jaxson de Ville.
The mascot known for pushing the boundaries was shown multiple times during the broadcast of the game wearing nothing but his mascot head, a slimmer spandex version of his mascot suit along with a tiny pair of American flag swimming briefs.
Jaxson’s attire quickly became fodder for the in-game commentators and Twitter users.
“What is going on with Jaxson de Ville today?” one commentator asked jokingly. “I’m wondering if we are allowed to show Jaxson de Ville on the air.”
Well after the Jaguars dramatic victory Sunday over the Baltimore Ravens, debates have been swirling around the city about whether or not Jaxson de Ville’s attire -- or lack thereof -- was appropriate for TV.
A few fans expressed their disapproval stating that kids attend the games as well. Others loved it calling de Ville’s actions “beautiful” and “amazing.”
One commenter online said, “This is totally disgusting! (Expletive) in front of children! Jaguars- you will LOSE a fan if this happens again.”
However, there were also even more supporters who said de Ville gave them a “good laugh” while at the game.

the fact that Jaguars mascot Jaxson De Ville still feels the need to wear underwear when otherwise nude implies that he has genitalia which must be covered in public https://t.co/Pk5RL61xEK— Rodger Sherman (@rodger) November 27, 2022

By the second half, Jaxson had his full suit back on and all order was restored.
Not to mention, this isn’t the first time de Ville has dressed down. A photo from the game on Nov. 6 against the Las Vegas Raiders showed de Ville sporting the same briefs.
