Houston (CBS Houston) – Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones was asked about the Texans’ new video board on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

Of course this question is asked days before the Governor’s Cup preseason matchup between the Cowboys and Texans on Thursday in Arlington.

Jones said on The Fan that he takes Houston’s twin Mitsubishi-made video board as ‘a compliment’ but that he prefers his board.

“There is a big difference on one down on the end as oppose to one down the middle, big difference in terms of impact and amenity for our fans,” Jones said. “And there is a big difference when you count all the square footage of video out there significantly in the favor of our stadium.”

Reliant Stadium’s new board has become the largest in the NFL measuring up to 277 feet by 52 feet, for a total of 14,549 square feet each, with a total cost of $16.5 million. Jerry Jones’ center board at AT&T Stadium is 180 feet by 72 feet.

Jones said he’s not going to get uptight, “I think a lot of Houston and a lot of Bob McNair.” He also said he remembers a time when the Cowboys had “as many fans in Houston as Houston did.”

“If somebody is going to say that (they have the biggest board in the NFL), it’s good it’s Houston,” Jones ended.
