    You'll be able to see the first down line from the last row of the stadium, just like you see it on TV.

    This will happen next season. And it is going to be bad fucking ass.

    I have spoken.

    The problem with the laser first down marker is that it still relies on a human being to spot the ball wherever he thinks the ball was when the runner went down.

    Hey, the laser is going to be a lot better than seeing some poor 70 year old get run over like a freight train.

    They can go to review for better spot. Lasers shooting across the field is going to be fucking bad ass.
