1st Down Measurements

Is it just me or does the whole chain gang and all that seem a little outdated?

I caught a part of the Cowboys game and saw where the officials had placed a ball, chain gang comes out and the ball was about an inch short of a first. Next play goes by, officials place the ball at where it seems to be placed further back than where it was when it started, chain gang comes out and it's a first down.

I was thinking the same thing when wathing that and when watching the Tech game yesterday. They need FREAKIN LASERBEAMS.
