Plus in the indoor sports, you have the big scoreboards that hang from the middle of the arenas that you would have to deal with.
Good points. They did use it in the NBA Playoffs for the first time this year, so it can be done inside. Do you feel that it really adds a new dimension to the game/production? Do you think it should be more ubiquitious in football telecasts?
