    Jones was asked about Houston trumping his board on his weekly radio show Tuesday, just in time for the Governor’s Cup preseason matchup between the Cowboys and Texans on Thursday.

    “If somebody is going to say that, it’s good it’s Houston,” Jones said in his magnanimous best.

    Jones also conveniently pointed out that bigger is not always better and he believes that the case here. Houston’s video board is on the end while Jones’ center hung board is more fan friendly.

    “There is a big difference on one down on the end as oppose to one down the middle, big difference in terms of impact and amenity for our fans,” Jones said. “And there is a big difference when you count all the square footage of video out there significantly at our stadium.”

    Well, our stadium was designed with the video board in mind so I'm sure it fits better.

    The Houston board looks like it's really 3 boards end to end. The video on the middle section is still dwarfed by the Cowboys board.

    There's a thread that shows a comparison in the fan pages. But the Houston one is just long. To actually show the tv screen it doesn't use the whole thing (it can't) and the rest of the board is used for advertisement, scoreboard, etc. Apples and Oranges imo.

    This is the video board equivalent of this.
