No delays on the Northern Line?

The indicator shows BIG Northern Line delays

No Northern Line Delays!

And yet while I was standing on the platform at Waterloo yesterday morning, I heard the station assistant reel out a whole host of delays on other lines, but he seemed to think that a 12 minute wait for the next Northern Line train at 9.50am wasn't worth mentioning. Is it another case of the station assistants not bothering to mention a blip in the system in the hope that it will clear up before people notice?

Even though I only had to wait a couple of minutes for my train, there must have been delays, as it was packed when I got on, and normally I can get a seat at this time in the latter part of the rush hour.
