Believe it or not, Crazy George is still around. But he has limited his "appearances" to smaller venues so that he doesn't have to cover as much ground as the Astrodome or Arrowhead Stadium........after all, he's almost 70!

I was not impressed. Picture quality is much better but almost 2/3's is ads. It wasn't my $16 million spent but maybe they could have spent some of that cash on grass because for the 1st preseason home game it looked like crap.

The picture quality was unbelievable. Better than my HD tv at home. See the numbers on the jersey during the game, look up and read the players name on the screen.
What the ads have to do with the picture quality, I have no idea. You could see the fillings in the fans teeth when they showed us on screen. AWESOME picture quality.

Half the clip I thought she was to the side of the nose and perspective made it appear inside the nostril. However, for a few seconds, it did look like she was in there.

As for the Board - not sure why the TXNS were brag'n it up with the Vandermeer clip on how big it was only to have the viewing area the same and ALL the xtra space holding ads

Excellent clarity and sharpness. Advertisements took up a large amount of the screen however.

It was so big and clear that I found myself distracted by it at times.

The new game intro was cool as hell though.

I totally agree with this with the exception of the viewing area being the same size.

These photos show it's quite a bit bigger than before.

I wonder why the camera guys thought that was big screen worthy? Sixteen mil for a mega-hi-tech screen and the Reliant "producers" put that on the screen. Oh yeah, let's embarrass the paying customers. If I was Uncle Bob, someone would be out on the street today.
