There is a reason that at any level, seats around the 50 yard line are more expensive than seats in the end zone. It is a better view. Hence, the end zone "floating" camera angle is cool for a pre-play shot and replays, but it sucks for live action.

Those angles are great for "extra" shots after the play, but you can't tell the result of the play from them.
That offical in the booth should be fired.............

FOX does it every year. I guess they think it's cool, or groundbreaking or something. I hate it.
I completely agree. I was yelling at the TV screen on Sunday. As others have said, the other views are fine for replays, but not for the live action.
