Scoreboard not only issue at Jerry World

Making the players walk through an in-stadium bar on their way to the field?  Who thinks of this stuff?

Jerry Jones, that’s who.

CBS’ NFL insider Charley Casserly, reporting on NBC (not really . . . Florio made me do that) said that the original setup to the Cowboys new stadium forced players from both teams to walk through an in-stadium bar where — but for a short retaining wall — fans had direct access to the players.

Casserly reports that the league said this might not be the best way to do things.  SoJones has now erected eight-foot glass wall to create a tunnel through the bar and onto the field.

Moving on to other accoutrements, Casserly also said that the height at which the Cowboys massive video board hangs wasn’t the only issue the league had with the monstrosity. Speakers on the board were directed toward the field making it difficult for players and officials to hear each other.  They’ve been redirected toward the stands.

Rewinding for just a minute though . . . walking through a bar???  Call him a whack job if you want but one can never argue that Jones slights his team’s fanbase when it comes to amenities.

    I was not the biggest fan of the new monstrosity, but the glass tunnel through the bar for the players awesome. Only sharks with laser beams could out do that.
    Seriously, cool idea.

    Now that there is a barrier I think that is actually kind of cool. Without the barrier though it would be a stupid idea.

    I heard that one of the walls in a bathroom was not properly painted. Jeez…. Jerry Jones is horrible.

    Also, a glass barrier is the only thing between the cheerleader’s dressing room and the VIP level men’s bathroom.

    Pacman would have had a quick drink and made it rain.

    I heard that the auto-flushers on the commodes were set to a one second delay instead of the league-mandated three seconds. Jerry Jones should be horsewhipped!

    I know I’d be thrilled as a player to have to wade through a crowd of drunk, moronic rednecks on the way to the field. That would really help me to get focused on the game at hand

    Hmmmmm, GLASS wall + drunks + bar stools, bottles, chairs, and other hard objects a drunk asshole might throw + large portion of the population carrying handguns = disaster waiting to happen. Unless it’s bullet proof glass, that’s a spectacularly bad idea.

    I figured you’d be right at home, “Jaydub”. That’s a drunk, moronic redneck name if there ever was one.

    …and thus is ushered in the new era of Jerry “PT Barnum’s” circus.

    JayLube, your probably some white wannabee wigger, who has been rejected by his own culture.

    Surely you don’t believe that guns are allowed inside the stadium. You can’t be that dumb. Can you?

    Why do professional athletes have to be treated like wrestlers? Is Vince McMahon going to introduce them?

    Metal detectors, really? Wow, nice hood. Even Oakland doesn’t have metal detectors. You’re making that up?
