It's been a bad year for the Miami Dolphins: first they lost Heisman Trophy-winning running back Ricky Williams for the upcoming season, and soon their "biggest HD display in the world" may have to play second fiddle to a new scoreboard being installed this summer for the University of Texas Longhorns. At 7,370 square feet, the 134-foot by 55-foot 'board being built for the school by Daktronics (who also manufactured the Miami display) has a slightly larger screen area than the current 7000-sqaure-foot title-holder, but nitpickers may argue that since the UT model will be almost a foot shorter diagonally, that it doesn't qualify as the "world's biggest." The argument may turn out to be moot, though, as a horse track in Tokyo is supposedly planning to install a ridiculous 197-foot-wide monster of a screen later this year that will overshadow all who came before it. UT's project comes as part of a multi-million dollar overhaul of their stadium, which will also include several other large displays, a new sound system, and a $150 million renovation of the north end zone meant to enable a 90,000 person capacity.

Not being the biggest or best at anything seems to be the hallmark of the Miami Dolphins :D

doesnt matter what whom wants to claim the biggest or "most pretty"

 

What matters is Wayne built that sucker from his pockett for the Fins and Fish to use. It is beautiful as heck to see :) It also matters because it helps procure that all important Super Bowl once every 4 years down here.

 

Personally, I love going to the Super bowl when it is here. I also love watching that screen at marlins games (cant wait till the NFL starts for it) dont you?

Ouch!

 

But really who care's. Whenever the biggest comes out there is always the next best thing to replace it.
