    Ooops.....someone forgot to check how high kicks go before putting up the jumbotron.

    My bad
    he did unfortunately for him the player they used couldn't punt for toffees... great to see their hi-tech stadium looking like a piece of crap. ;D
    They said they went by the regulation book that the NFL put out, min 90 ft.
    The punters now must kick higher than punters of old.
    I think that with building bigger and better and taller and stronger.......... and all those expanding adjectives a height limit on how high was not needed until someone tries to bring something down towards the field.

    Who would have "thunk" it?
    perhaps the Vikes could loan the 'boys TJ. have him line up and throw a deep pass downfield, if he can do so without hitting the jerrytron then it's high enough
    ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Best bit (talking about the Colts and Lucas Oil Stadium that opened last season):
    Bill Polian, the Indianapolis Colts owner ran across the same conundrum when they were building the new Lucas Oil stadium. He had an I-beam placed 90 feet above the playing surface and brought his punter in to give it a whirl. Low and behold the Colts punter nailed the beam 50% of the time. Polian then decided to move the video board, out of the way to the upper sides of the stadium; what a novel idea.
    Smart vs. Ego.
    Smart wins most of the time.

    Re: Cowboys new "Jerrytron" causing major issues

    Apparently per the NFL guidelines this all fits within the parameters the league established some time ago.
    Now U2 is having a concert there in a couple of weeks and will raise the Jumbotron in order to get their stage in the stadium.

    After that Jones apparently wants to lower it back down to the height it is now.
    I have also heard he is trying to ask the NFL to pay for the re-model.
    You gotta give it to Jones, he is a master of publicity................good, bad, or indifferent.

    LOL!
    He can move it up, but wants the NFL to pay for a remodel.
    What a business man!

    As it stands, the play will be repeated and one competition committee member said the clock is re-set to the time of the original snap of the ball on "do-overs." Pereira replied that re-setting the clock "sounds logical" after initially telling the Los Angeles Times what Fisher also suggested to ESPN -- that a team could strategically attempt to run out the clock by repeatedly punting it into the board.
