  • Cowboys Should Have Hired Hank Hill to Design Stadium

    From ESPN:

    Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher was firm in his stance Saturday that the jumbo videoboard at Cowboys Stadium presents “a lot of issues” and the NFL’s competition committee that he co-chairs is expected to have a conference call in the near future to discuss the problem.

    Titans backup punter A.J. Trapasso hit the large video screen that hangs over the field during the third quarter of the $1.2 billion stadium’s inaugural preseason game Friday night. There was confusion because the officiating crew apparently did not see the ball strike the board. Fisher threw his red flag, asking for a replay, even though the play was not reviewable.

    “It wasn’t [reviewable] last night … not sure about the future,” Mike Pereira, the NFL’s vice president of officiating, said via a text message.

    The Cowboys would have been better off letting Hank Hill design the stadium.
