JumboJerry Staying Put
On the agenda at the NFL owners meetings this week in Orlando:
*Marquee TV games, including the Cowboys' 2010 Thanksgiving opponent.
*Further discussion of how to share annual $8 billion in revenue with players.
*New rules changes. Maybe overtime. Possibly eliminating the three-point stance.
Not on the itinerary:
*Moving the giant video board at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
When I first heard about and saw the dimensions back in May 2009 I raised questions about someone hitting it and then in the pre-season Tennessee Titans punter A.J. Trapasso did just that.
But during the regular season no one touched it. Came close. But in the end the board is apparently out of harm's way and owner Jerry Jones was validated in his defiant stance that the his baby would not have to be raised.
