Yellow Lines

Postby Lushcrush » Sun Sep 12, 2004 7:31 am

I've always wondered about this ...how do they project the yellow 1st down lines on the field during television games?
I know they are computer generated ... but does anyone know exactly how its done?

Thanks to that line we're all able to call the ref a @#$ idiot for having to call out the chains when it's obvious to us what the call should be.

Follow the yellow line in the snow.....

and don't you eat that yellow snow..."

I think they should let John Madden use the yellow line to write his name on the field....
