Titans going big to keep fans from staying at home
By TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans promised their fans bigger and better, and they're coming through with video boards almost as large as those at Cowboys Stadium trying to put the home theater experience into their NFL stadium.
Titans executive Don MacLachlan said Monday they made it a priority to give fans every reason to come out to games rather than staying at home. The team has been busy installing 800 new speakers to go with the new video boards on each end of the field, which will be the biggest in any NFL outdoor stadium in the end zone.
ANC Sports Enterprises is installing the video boards, and president Jerry Cifarelli says these boards take advantage of technology new to outdoor stadiums offering 16-millimeter pixel display to offer the sharpest display possible.
