    In the neighborhood, the material possessions collection game is called keeping up with the Joneses.

    In the NFL, the game has the same title.

    And Redskins owner Daniel Snyder will be keeping up with the Jerry Joneses by installing two new 100-foot HD video screens in each end zone of FedEx Field.

    The team also is boasting that the state-of-the-art LED displays are "punter-proof," a dig at the District 9 mother ship that hangs over the floor of Cowboys Stadium.

    "Dan Snyder asked us to identify the technologies that would deliver a spectacular game-day experience to fans," COO David Donovan said. "These upgrades to true HD video boards and control room will allow us to carry high-quality, multiple-angle replays, live game action and game graphics, as well as more frequent out-of-town scores."

    Of course, the most spectacular game-day experience for the home fans would be consistent victories by the home teams.

    But, hey, at least they'll have the video boards.

    "Punter-proof?" Seriously?

    Is it any wonder their fans are the way they are when the organization itself acts like a bunch of grasping morons at every possible opportunity? :rolleyes:

    They may be big new screens, but half of the real estate will be advertising since they're replacing permanent advertising billboards that used to be on the sides of the old screens.

    ...and I guess Snyder was too busy taking his season ticket holders to court to get the memo on the fact that our video board wasn't hit even one time this season.

    Another hollow non-victory for redskins and redskins fans everywhere..... in the greater DC area, I mean.

    Maybe if Danny would install one of those little screens at his theme parks someone would show up.

    Wait, so suddenly having big video boards is chic?

    Not only that, but they have to whine about some improvement?

    Little ***** syndrome.

    Well good for you Danny Boy. That 'punter proof' board and your 4-12 season have earned you a top 5 pick in the draft. Congrats.

    Dallas' video board is punter proof as well. As long as you're not AJ Trapasso.

    And a 100 foot long videoboard doesn't compete with the 180 foot videoboard.

    Now we have to get Synder to work on the next mission, taking our garbage, sign them to long expensive deals and watch the meltdown take over.

    I want to see Synder pointing fingers and screaming "THEY GOT TO I WANT TO"!!!!!!!!!
