Feel free to criticize Jerry Jones’s football team, or his southern accent, or his several gaffes as general manager of the Cowboys (see: Mike Vanderjagt). But when you bring his record-breaking videoboard into it, a board that hovers like a huge and entertaining space craft above the field at Cowboys Stadium, you may be crossing a line.
That’s exactly what Washington Redskins’ owner Daniel Snyder did on Monday while guiding a media tour through the revamped FedEx Field, when he made that much debated argument that size matters only so much.
“This is as good as you get quality-wise,” Snyder said to reporters in reference to the upgraded screens at FedEx Field, per the Dallas Morning News. “These are sharper definition than you'll see down in Texas.”
Jerry Jones has not yet responded to Snyder’s remarks but we imagine, when he does, that the phrase “Oh no he didn’t” will leap to mind for the Cowboys’ owner, who beams with a sort of pride that could only be described as paternal when speaking of his namesake, the JerryTron.
