The Yellow Portions of NFL on CBS' Ticker Will Reportedly Be Gone by Next Week

If you have been watching any of today's NFL action on CBS, you may have mistakenly thought that every play has been called for some sort of penalty, thanks to the yellow portion on their ticker. Yeah, don't worry, you're not alone. Usually, a yellow section on our screens have been solely reserved for letting us know that there was a "flag" on the previous play. However, the network has used the same exact color to let viewers know of a final score. Either way, the damn thing is confusing. 

Luckily, according to Deadspin, this is going to be the last week we have to deal with all of this confusion. Here's a comment on their site from John Koblin:

A guy at CBS tells me: "CBS is changing their graphics next week. They are aware of the problem. They can't fix on the fly."

In response to this news, we only have two words: Thank. You.
