When switching you find one guy walking on and off the field. However,
that the analogue clock take 93 guys is obvious, but I fail to see that
94 guys is needed for the digital clock, since the maxium guys used for
a digit is 13 and not 15, and the first digit can only have the numbers
0, 1 and 2 so only 12 guys would be needed there. Hence, instead of one
guy coming in we could send 13 guys of to drink beer when switching to
digital display. Hence, digital is more effective.
