Xcel Energy and Nationwide both seem to have been built around the time HD was still a passing fad. We're finally getting ours upgraded in time for the All-Star Game.

(Yes, that's right. We're spending more money to do the upgrade. Because while we may not have recent success, we still have pride.)

So, it'll drop in games and be their "1" in a 3-1-1?

Tampa Bay Lightning Chairman and Governor Jeff Vinik is privately funding a revolutionary, $5 million high definition (HD), center-hung video display system that will be installed into the Tampa Bay Times Forum before the start of the 2012-13 Lightning regular season. The system, developed by renowned industry-leader, Daktronics, will feature the largest high definition center-hung video displays in any U.S. or Canadian arena. It will include a state-of-the-art control room, and allow for a true high definition signal with 1,296 lines of resolution.

As long as it's not tall, and just wide across, that'd be pretty cool actually. I might actually like a scoreboard that was almost like the same proportions as scores on the broadcast, just scaled up.

Yes he must be running out of money and has little or no assets (NHL, Area Football, part of the Red Sox, Hedge fund, not worth much), why else would he need partners to buy channel side. After giving ways $50K for each of the next 164 home games he may not renew it. Must down to only $500m.

What are the ticket prices like in TB?

I'd like to see a game there.

FYI one of the reasons its being replaced is because nobody can work on it. The company that made the old one basically went out of business after completing it, and it has some temperature issues that cause the video to either leave big black pixels or have video "stick" and not render properly. Can't have that thing die in the middle of a game next year.

You'll have to explain why you would hallucinate that a team that pulls 18,400 a game would receive revenue sharing.

Its not cowboyesque unless it is low enough to get its own official rule because it keeps getting hit by pucks.

The small screens the Panthers have at Bank Atlantic Center are so pathetic. It's like watching a standard def tv from 1979. Totally pointless to even look at it.

The Dallas Cowboys organization is just one big gimmick. Modelling another organization after them isn't a great idea

Looks fine to me. I went to a game there last year and I thought the Tesla coils were silly but kind of fun at the same time.
