    New Scoreboard

    The new board was sure impressive. I was a bit disappointed, though, that it showed only one replay of disputed calls that were under review. Do you suppose the reason for that is to let the officials off the hook if they rule against what appears to be clear after seeing the replay several times?

    Also, it was difficult for us to understand what was being announced from our location in the upper deck of the SE corner of the stadium. Was it better in other parts of the stadium?

    I thought that must be it. There were times when they showed a replay, and then the play went to review and they never showed the replay anymore.

    If I supporting the wonderful work of those refs, I would have the same rule.

    Re: New Scoreboard

    Dont want to see if it was already discussed, but I thought the old scoreboard was just supposed to be showing stats?

    No way you should ever be putting an HD video feed into that thing, it looked HHOORRRRIIBBLLEE! Put stats up or knock the thing down.

    They took the HD feed out of it. But yes it should only be used for stats because the video was awful.

    It seemed like partway through the game they stopped showing the video feed and were just showing "Go State" graphics and stuff like that.
