My question is Where does the plain begin?
In the thread “Let us begin” there is a discussion about the 2003 eastern final and if A.C fumbled before crossing the plain.
Does the plain begin on the one yard line side of the 2 foot wide stripe or on the back side of that stripe. Basicly what I am sayin is Is the goal line part of the endzone. I think that having such a wide stripe can cause confusion when desiding if a play was a touchdown or not. I think that the goal line shoud be removed compleatly and the end zone should be a different colour than the playing field. This way it would be easier see if the ball is in the endzone rather than judging which side of a 2 foot line the ball had crossed.
This is kinda hard to explain in writing. Do you follow what I am trying to say?
