Why do you need a tv? You're at the game.

Was there a Jumbotron in Chicago Stadium for the Bears / Portsmouth Spartans NFL Championship? Did they have a tv at the Ice Bowl? When Johnny U. handed off to Alan Ameche in the Greatest Game Ever Played, was it up on a big screen? No, people watched it with their eyes. I'll bet everyone was looking too, because if you didnt look, you couldnt see it. Unless you were watching it on the radio.

Back in the days when we had to pay attention, we had attention spans. The more crap we have, the more we're missing something.

I aint mad at nobody, just yappin on my keyboard. cool?

Hey, did you know which stadium was the first to have a big screen?
hint: it was on a "gondola?"
Now do you know?

i agree with sky mike. the only thing the tv is good for is for replays. other than that i think theymake the place look cheap.
i worked on the dome project putting the new skin on the outside and the windows in the 4 corners of the dome @ the club levels.
trust me, for the beginning of this year the dome will be up to date and will look 10 times better than it ever did.
if somone can tell me how to put pics on here i can update pics from inside and out. im there almost everyday when im not doing paperwork for the project.

yeah its cool. i do alot of yappin on the keyboard. somtimes i think people misunderstand me. but i dont get how someone can say big screens make the place look CHEAP. the super domes screens look cheap cuz they're small and crappy. but bigger screens are very nice, very modern, and very helpfull to the crowd on some plays. u get to see that big hit by vilma, or that strip by jenkins, or when ivory plows over a guy near the sideline, up close and in slow motion. me sitting in the terrace section, sometimes its hard to see exactly what happens on the field. thats one reason why alot of fans now days would rather stay home and watch the games. i like being there in person myself. but BIG screen tvs are a MUST in my opinion.

Well this is America. You can like big screens if you want to.
Good thing you live in modern times.

But being there, to me, will always beat watching it on tv. The best
thing is when you're there, and Marques Colston makes a circus catch
and we win, then you drive home later that night, and watch it on highlights and see a whole different view + the look on his face.

i think dallas new stadium looks cheap with the big tv at mid field. if the dome was to get new tvs in the existing spots that had better resolution i would be for it. i sit in nose bleed. i would hate to not be able to see the other side anymore cause of a tv in the way. wouldnt feel right. plus with too many LEDs and other graffics going on it feels like a hornets game.

i agree with both of you guys. i much rather be in the dome on sundays. and i think a 60 yard long tv hanging over the field is just ridiculous. this picture below is more what i had in mind. jus hang one of these in the same 2 exact spots as the current tvs are, and then we'd really look up to date for the next 15-20 years.

you got season tix in the terrace? cool, im in 623.

LED/graphics, thats exactly what im talking about... the more crap we have at the stadium, the more we're missing something going on in real life. I'm much more interested, during the breaks on what the players
are doing on the sideline, or anything real. we're dying of graphics.
