Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Signs

NFL Refs started using microphones to call penalties in 1975. College followed soon after. Why do they still insist on using their sign language, over 30 years later?

Ha, good point. I'm deaf, btw and use sign language. I suppose it's become a tradition and I think it would look funny if referees just speak into microphone without signaling. Even fans would sign "hold hold hold!' penalty as refs make their calls.
