JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jaguars fans learned on Friday that EverBank Field will be known as TIAA Bank Field starting next year. And unlike team officials, they weren't thrilled about the news.

To no one's surprise, many fans aired out their displeasure on social media, which we all know from experience is the best place to vent your unfiltered thoughts.
