I just noticed this. They say that they're trying for a 30 yard field goal to win the game, but the little tiny football is clearly spotted at the 25, which means that it's a 35 yard field goal. Is this an inexcusable production error, or is the commercial accurately portraying the cluelessness of a typical announcing team?

Actually, it looks like it starts at the 20 and then moves back to the 25. Maybe there was a delay of game that got edited out or something.

If the ball is at the 25 then it would be a 42 yard FG attempt.

I want their job. Except I'm not tiny. Even if I whispered during that game it would cause tornadoes. That would be entertaining for television though. Someone sign me dammit!!! :cuss:

I could be a nose tackle in that league. I wouldn't mind being a quarterback, but I'd be afraid of killing my receivers. Yes sirree, I don't see a single player on that field who could force me off the line of scrimmage.
