I believe this must be fixed with a sports technology product...Read More

Alan Amron, the Founder of FirstDownLaser.com mentioned to the Sports Techie blog that the Bowl game was called by ESPN’S DAVID POLLACK, JESSE PALMER and RECE DAVIS who are quoted as saying… “I still don’t understand why they can’t get like a Laser Beam from one side to the other to measure for the first downs”?
