Titans Request New Video Screen Scoreboards

Do the Titans really need new scoreboards? I was skimming my Google News Alerts for the Titans when I saw this ridiculous headline. They are expecting the Metro Sports Authority to pony up $3.5 million just for some enhanced video functionality on the scoreboards. I’m guessing the Coliseum GM, Walter Overton, will use his old connections to help move this request through quickly and quietly. Nothing like having the former head of the Sports Authority as the pointman for a deal like this.

From a fan’s perspective, I don’t really give a crap what’s on the scoreboard. Sure, it’s fun to be distracted by the Logan’s Shell Game, the Turnin’ Up the Heat contest or the Kroger Shopping Cart Race every game. What we don’t really need to see is Eddie Fox yelling “God Bless America!” in high definition. It’s annoying enough in standard quality. Here’s hoping the Sports Council rejects this proposal.

    I think the thing is….they’ve seen how cool Baltimore’s is and we can’t have them be better.

    And I think getting some new bits for the scoreboard would help a LOT! Spend the money on some better between the downs and during TV time-out time fillers and it might be better.

    Uh… the Titans aren’t a non-profit, are they? Why can’t they buy their own toys?

    $3.5 mil would probably cover the cost of the laid off staff at several Nashville libraries. I imagine it might buy some art for the empty art museum too. But, Nashville’s always had it’s priorities.
