Why hasn't that signal officially been adopted?

You've never seen this one? I'm guessing it's over ten years ago. Still pretty good.

See this one all the time on the football board...especially since it happened again a couple years ago in an ACC game. My favorite one is from the movie "Necessary Roughness" when the referee is describing a personal foul on a linebacker. That was a classic, which perhaps was stolen from the one in the OP.

A lot of stuff regurgitated on the internet gets old quick, but this is a classic that rarely does in my book...my favorite part isn't so much what he said but the subtle mannerisms he displays when doing it

Over 10? Easily. Looks like something more like 25 given the graphics.

Found on the net:

Ben Dreith is also known among football fans for his unique explanation of a personal foul penalty during a 1986 game between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets. After the Jets' Marty Lyons (misidentified as Mark Gastineau during Dreith's call) tackled Bills quarterback Jim Kelly to the ground and started to repeatedly punch him in the head, Dreith announced to the crowd: "We have a personal foul on number 99 of the defense after he tackled the quarterback, he's giving him the business down there, that's a 15-yard penalty."
