One of many experimental iterations ...

So the Redskins' new video scoreboards may not technically be*bigger than what football fans see in Cowboys Stadium. But that doesn't mean they're not better, said Washington owner Daniel Snyder. "This is as good as you get quality-wise," Snyder said Sunday afternoon at FedEx Field. "These are sharper definition than you'll see down in Texas."* Just five days before the Redskins play their first preseason game, Snyder led a tour*for media outlets to show off the new video scoreboards and other stadium upgrades. Snyder has dropped about $20 million this offseason to spruce up FedEx Field, highlighted of course by the pair of scoreboards, each measuring 100 feet in length, in either end zone. Snyder also took reporters to the club level to visit*Sean Taylor's locker. The locker was relocated from*Redskins Park and re-assembled on the club level for*permanent display. Team employees put the locker back together just as Taylor

You have to give credit where it's due - the fans bitched about the quality of replay, and the old antiquated system, and Snyder heard them.

It's a lot easier to upgrade this kind of thing when you're building a stadium from the ground up. It's a whole other proposition when dealing with an existing stadium (particularly an outdoor one) and figuring out how to upgrade without screwing up the existing setup.

Props in advance to Dan Snyder for sinking money into this effort. This is the kind of thing that deservedly wins a ton of good will for an owner. He should do more of this going forward. Listen to what your customers really want, dive in, and respond to it.

Good on you Mr. Snyder :cheers:
