Problematic Punting Predicament

I watched a little bit of the Cowgirls vs. Titans last night. (after the Brewer game of course) Titans backup punter A.J. Trapasso nailed the giant video screen above the field. All I could think was FAIL. If some chump backup kicker hits it I'm sure it's going to be a problem; however, Jerry Jones disagrees stating "You don't need to move it. You gotta be trying to do it. The rule is very clear. You just kick it over." Thats fine and dandy, but why the fuck would you pay over a billion dollars for a stadium and not think about something so obvious? If you haven't seen it, it's pictured above.

Former awesome Packer kicker Craig Hentrich (who we never should have let go) said "I hit it probably a dozen times in pregame," "Probably somewhere around a five-second punt is going to hit it and some of the guys in the league wouldn't be able to punt here if it's not raised, they'd just be non-stop hitting it. I don't know what the people were thinking. I guess they should have tested things out before they put that thing in place. It'll have to be raised."

That's great that there is a rule in place for when it happens, but football games are already long enough with instant replay and commercial time outs, we don't need additional lengthening factors. Especially when they were totally avoidable.

I'm sure this is going to happen over and over. Jones is a stubborn prick. Sorry your billion and a half dollar stadium was designed by morons. Probably move the stupid thing before it gets hit to much and shit starts falling on people. You already had your circus tent practice facility collapse, do you want another catastrophe?
