"Things I am happy to say we will never hear: 'London Jumbo Shrimp,'" tweeted Brandon Ward. "Done with the Jags forever."

"Will you be playing 20% of your home games in another country?" tweeted David Graham.

"I would love for the Jumbo Shrimp to outsell the Jags," tweeted Tyler Hoagland. "Khan will move the team and cite low ticket sales and blame us for his malicious incompetence."
