    Alright, since no one else will say anything about it...

    Did it surprise ANYONE the other night that we have an 80-foot wide video screen, along with two secondary screens, and half of it is covered with advertisements?

    Now, the worst part of it for me is that the two screens on the sides show the EXACT same ads that it had before, just now they are electronic.

    Stupid me. I got my hopes up that those two screens on the sides would show stats for each team throughout the game like Auburn does.

    Sitting in the south end zone, the text is kinda small for the "scoreboard" part of it at the bottom. It doens't show time outs left either. Not a shocker that some portions of it were not illumintating troughout the game either. As for the ads, pretty much what i expected, unfortunately.

    Exactly my thoughts.

    Although I would add that the screen itself had some nice quality.

    Worse, they don't even use the whole widescreen for video replays, just for promo's. They have two rows of ads on each side of a smaller picture instead.

    It's about what I expected. The text was too small, for sure.

    The screen also had a big glitch in it for most of the second half.

    On the other hand, the video quality blows away the old jumbo. It's really good and high resolution.

    I give the new Jumbotron a B-minus.

    This was promised. What was delivered was more like this.

    Maybe someone can arrange a meeting between whoever controls the scoreboard, and its content, with Jerry Jones.:lol:

    Guys its all about the MONEY.

    If anyone expected it to be more then a bigger billboard is out of their mind.

    They dont care about the fans in the seats all they care about is those butts sitting in those richer boxers!

    Anyone else think its ****ed up that its Chick Fila in the stadium and not BRs own CANES?

    AND WHO IN THE HELL WANTS TO EAT SUSHI at a football game????

    Yeah I gotta say, I was disappointed. I knew it would be full of adds, but I expected there to be a bit more picture there. I do have to say the quality was excellent though... It looked so good it made me want to get a new Chevy, drive to Taco Bell, McDonalds, and Canes, get food and a Coke, pay for it with my Capital One card, have some Kentwood water to wash it down with, get a lottery ticket, call Cox on my Alltel phone and order a pay-per-view game, enjoy the game while sipping on a Powerade, and take the leftover food and trash and put it in a box and ship it to the athletic dept via UPS as a token of my appreciation... Damnit.
