The board has to go up to fit the stage for a U2 concert on Oct. 12. The Cowboys could leave it at that new height or they could use that opportunity to put in a system that would let them raise and lower it whenever they want. However, that would add to the price tag of a stadium that's already nearly double its originally projected cost of $650 million. There was one other glitch with the screens Friday night: Programmers forgot to include down and distance in the graphics. They scrambled to add it during the game and expect to have it resolved by the next game.

Damn what a start!!!HA!HA!If it isn't enough for those cowbums fans!! I am sure T.O. has a better idea!!Go Raiders!!!!

We need that board so everyone in the stadium, including the morons who $29 to stand, can watch me choke.

You speak as if raider fans have lots and lots to cheer about. As for romo the poster if I may ask what team do you go for? As for the big screen I don't see why we need such a big ass screen.(as I disregard romos comments.) Other than the big screen the stadium looks all right though I don't really care about the stadium as I do the teams performance.

What's the Raiders' slogan?

"Commitment to Excellence"

Bwahahahahaha!

I agree that the FAWKIN senile owner should be committed!

Too bad you don't have the Lions on your schedule this year! Then again, Detroit would finally win a game!

Bwahahahahaha!

At least he didn't have to go though what Tom Landry went though when Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson walk up and fired him. Landry was a get coach and man. How you cowbums fans seem to forget the true reality of your team.
