So much for moving to LA

Isn't this overkill for a team that can't score points?

February 6, 2013  12:37 PM ET

another idiot owner with a misplaced agenda. The biggest video screen has done nothing for the success of the Cowboys and obviously these scoreboards won't do anything to help with the talent on the field in Jax. Put a team together first and then worry about all the other sh&T!

That way the Jaguar fans can be reminded how much they suck when they get stomped on by opposing teams.. Way to go Borat !!

I was thinking Avery Schreiber, but Borat is much better.

Is it just me or does the owner of the Jags look a lot like Ron Jeremy with a moustache gone wild.

Or maybe Ron Jeremy looks like Shad Khan with something else gone wild. Hog wild.

But I'm proud to say that I can't make that comparison from experience.

What is it exactly that the fans will be watching on these new scoreboards? Certainly not Jaguar hilights.

Looks like *someone* is over compensating for certain deficient problems?

the texans plan to build a bigger scoreboard than the one in cowboys stadium this off season. not sure where they will put it, but likely in the endzones too. can't imagine a 348' wide screen. the cowboys screen is 60 yrds wide (180') and is a bit of a distraction i thought. people in the upper decks just watch the screen every play. it is nice for replays. cowboys staduim is very impressive, but it almost has a feel that seems to take away from the game. like there's too much other "stuff" going on and the game is just part of the activities.
