    Football Field Numbering Systems.

    If you even seen old NFL films the numbering systems were different. intead of 10 20 30 40 50, it was 5 10 15 10 etc.

    Here's an old 1971 highlight film whicg proves it.

    They stopped labeling the 5, 15, 25, 35, and 45 yard line because it wasn't needed.

    That should be the end of the discussion. Next time just ask me.

    This. It's unnecessary and doesn't look as good. I don't know where you saw this thread going

    The early refs weren't that smart and needed the additional help to determine field position?

    This is the answer that comes closest to the truth for me, by just guessing.
