Yeah, but that's based on brand recognition and reputation, not on their stadium development tactics. I don't see how aping their scoreboard design would help.

Personally, I'd worry about the "small" screens on either end as being somewhat inaccessible to folks sitting in those sections.

Hey, it gets folks to keep buying stadium tickets instead of cable packages and HDTVs. That by itself arguably makes it a good business strategy for them.
