I was once in the stands for an NCAA D-III game where the home school AD was scooping the goal line with a shovel at one end of the field when play was at the other end. One team threw an incomplete pass on 1st-and-10 and the next down was 2nd-and-12 because the umpire could not see the parallel lines to determine where to spot the ball in relation to the down marker (it was very obvious from the stands that he was at least two yards off).

If it's not dangerous, play on. Make the best calls you can make. GIGDGO.
