Mom Always Said Don’t Play Ball In the New Stadium

8

Especially when there is an HDTV like this hanging low for footballs to hit:

hdtv-cowboys

That’s the Cowboys’ new 160-foot long, 90-foot high video board. Punters continually hit it.

“I hit it probably a dozen times in pregame,” Craig Hentrich said. “Probably somewhere around a five-second punt is going to hit it and some of the guys in the league wouldn’t be able to punt here if it’s not raised, they’d just be non-stop hitting it. I don’t know what the people were thinking. I guess they should have tested things out before they put that thing in place. It’ll have to be raised.”

Backup punter A.J. Trapasso hit the huge HD screen during the Titans/Cowboys preseason game. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones: “You don’t need to move it. You gotta be trying to do it. The rule is very clear. You just kick it over.”

    Another brilliant move by Jones.

    Wow…thats Texas for you… one of the most back-asswards states in the country.

    It would be better off if they hanged the inmates on death row from it whenever the Cowboys score a touch down…

  • nate

    this is hilarious.

    but reese, what the f is your deal?

  • dhaab

    So you blame the entire state of Texas for that, Reese? Wow.

  • dynputer

    Only one punter ever hit it, in preseason, and he was TRYING. Why not get your fact’s straight?

    fact’s? Looks like someone else needs to get something straight.

  • GFYM

    I’m just happy that Giants won the first game on it.

  • Skizza

    You guys are idiots. There are league regulations as to how high anything over the field of play is. They didn’t just guess and put up enormous TV screens. They checked with the league, and actually installed them 5 feet higher than what is required by the league. Don’t believe everything you read cuzz you’ll go around spouting ridiculous, uninformed facts and opinions. Take 2 minutes to research something you read/heard yourself, then you won’t be a puppet for this author’s agenda. Jerry Jones/Dallas Cowboys bashing.
