    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
    do they use the same strategy when determining how far away the stands need to be from the sideline?
    If TJ can lead a receiver into them, they're too close?

    League officially announces "do over" rule

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/08/28/league-officially-announces-do-over-rule/

    [size=12pt]League officially announces "do over" rule[/size]
    Posted by Mike Florio on August 28, 2009 10:31 AM ET
    The NFL formally has announced the rule that will apply to the Cowboys video board in 2009.

    Here's the official text of the new rule.

    1. If a ball in play strikes a video board, guide wire, sky cam, or any other object, the ball will be dead immediately, and the down will be replayed at the previous spot.

    2. If there is not an on-field ruling that the ball struck an object, the Replay Assistant is empowered to initiate a booth review, including if the event occurs prior to the two-minute warning. If, prior to the two-minute warning, no booth review is initiated by the Replay Assistant, a coach's challenge is permitted under the customary procedures for such a challenge.

    3. In the event the down is replayed: (a) The game clock will be reset to the time remaining when the snap occurred. (b) All penalties will be disregarded, except for personal fouls which will be administered prior to replaying the down.

    So there you have it. The board won't be moved during the 2009 season.
    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    If I were a punter in the NFL, and if I were playing in Dallas, I would see how many times I could consecutively hit the scoreboard. Fuck Jerry Jones.

    I realize that NFL rules require 85 feet, or whatever the number is, but if you were going to put up the lowest hanging screen in the league, wouldn't you at least do a little research into how high modern punters typically put the ball up?

    The other side of this is that it could end up being a (very) slight disadvantage for the Cowbitches. If their punter can't kick as high, that means less hangtime, which means more running room for punt returners. Love it. I sincerely hope it costs them at least one game this season.

    Punters are going to do their best not to hit it, because the kicking team is always screwed on do overs, since their players are the ones sprinting down the field.
    I imagine the solution for Dallas will be low directional kicks toward the sidelines.

    Look..
    I don't like the Cowgirls as much as anyone here.

    But why the hostility towards Jones?
    So, you don't like him..
    Doesn't mean he's in the wrong...
    Read my next post..

    [size=18pt]NFL 'Preferential' Treatment of the Cowboys?[/size]

    "Mike Florio" wrote:
    Our own suspicion is that the league bowed to Jerry Jones on this one because the league sensed that he was prepared to go to the mattresses in order to preserve his football cathedral as it was designed and envisioned.
    With acrimonious labor negotiations on the horizon, it likely made much more sense to keep Jones happy at a time when, if he'd been told to move his swanky new big-screen televisions, he would have been anything but.
    Ok, there are times when I agree with Mike..
    This is not one of them.

    Are you kidding, Florio?!
    First off, you can't tell me that the league had NO clue of Jones' plans of his 'football cathedral' (I will say this..
    It's awesomely huge).
    Am I wrong in thinking that there is a team of NFL officials that overlook and review teams' proposed design plans for new stadiums being built?
    Even if there isn't..
    Ughh..
    Mike?
    Yeah..
    Jones still put his gigantitron above league standards.

    Bottom line here, is Jones built this within league regulations.
    If there's now a problem with it..
    It's the leagues issue.
    Not Jones'.

    My solution?
    The NFL records the height of every punt this season.
    Rewrite the rule as per those results.
    And then pay for any moving of said obstructions that happen to currently reside below the new height standards.

    Goodell, you lose this fight.
    Give it up.

    I read an article about how if they have the "do overs" that time continues to run off of the clock... so theoretically a team could run out the clock a little bit with the right punter

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shu...urn=nfl,184487
    Update: Mike Periera, the NFL's director of officiating, told The Los Angeles Times that the league will look into the problem this week. The concern is that a punter could intentionally try to hit the video screen in order to run out the clock at the end of a half. When a down is replayed, the clock doesn't reset.
    where's the OWNED or PWNED picture when you need it
    I always wondered this. What does PWNED mean?
    Old school gamer term.
    Back in the day, when a person got 'OWNED' or 'OWND', the person dishing the 'ownage' would type 'OWNED'.
    Imagine, trying to type that word out as fast as possible with no corrections..
    'PWNED' was a popular typo.
    People took that rock and ran with it.

    At least, that's my recollection of what it means/where it came from.
