Chiefs get go-ahead to pick scoreboard design

The Jackson County Sports Complex Authority on Tuesday gave the Chiefs the go-ahead to choose a scoreboard design for Arrowhead Stadium.
The new scoreboard is part of a $375 million package of stadium improvements at Arrowhead, said Jim Rowland, executive director of the sports authority.
The Chiefs will choose from five proposed designs. But what those scoreboard designs will look like has not been determined.
One thing is known: The basic frame of the scoreboard will not change.
“The scoreboard is a signature view of Arrowhead Stadium, so it is being retained,” said Blake Ellis of Burns & McDonnell, which is monitoring the project for the sports authority and Jackson County.
The proposals call for the main video display board to be 100 to 150 feet wide.
Some of the other considerations are whether to include side advertising panels and how large they should be, and the resolution of the video display. Cost will be a main factor in the final selection, Ellis said.
Overall stadium improvements to be completed by 2010 include larger concourses, more concession stands and restrooms and a new upper-level viewing area.
A Jackson County sales tax will cover $250 million of the bill, and the Chiefs are to chip in $125 million.

Oh yeah, in the KC Star today, they showed an updated version of the huge football they are constructing next to the practice facility.

They said they are gonna cover it in copper.

Has anyone seen the pictures I posted of it?

It's not the scoreboard that is gonna be covered in copper, its a huge sculpture, or something, that they are building next to the practice facility, and the offices.

Here it is about a month ago, still under construction.

Actually it probably wont turn green. Although copper does corrode to a green color, new copper alloys which they most likely will use does not tarnish to the green color.
