NFL To Let The Cowboys Keep Their Punt-Blocking HD Screen

Despite the fact that the Cowboys' new 54-metre HD screen has already blocked a punt and the NFL season hasn't even started yet, the league is going to let it stay put. At least this year.

The screen, which Titans punter AJ Trapasso pegged on Friday, hangs 27 metres above the field, which is just low enough to be in the way of seriously high punts. If it gets hit again the ball is ruled dead, the clock is set back and the play is done over. If it happens a lot this season, however, look for the league to force Jimmy Jones to spend a couple million bucks to move it up a few metres. [NFL via Engadget]
