I just noticed this now while watching the stamps/lions game online. All season long I've had a hard time keeping track of what down it is and how many to go and I thought its because I'm just not thinking about it. But I've noticed every play the yellow line either doesn't come up at all or it does at the snap, which is useless! I'm a visual guy, I don't want to be reading the yards to go every play. Wtf is this sh-t!!
Edit: just noticed this too, a lot of the time the down isn't even displayed. It just says "CFL on TSN". This is ridiculous.
