Yard, n:
Yard is derived from the term 'milliard' which is used in some Europeanlanguages and is equivalent to the number one billion used in American English.It is equal to 10y (10 to the ninth power), or the number one followed by ninezeros: 1,000,000,000. If someone were to purchase one billion U.S. dollars, he or she could refer to the purchase as 'a yard of U.S. dollars'. (Investopedia)
Section 6
of the NFL ofcial rulebook contains ve articles, all of which deal with
infringements that result in a 'delay of game' penalty.It appears as though the powers that be frown upon the idea of players wasting time in thehope that they can hasten the sound of the whistle whilst holding an advantage.Based upon the seemingly petty nature of many of the designated infractions, it would appear
that not only has this been going on for quite some time, but that the players and ofcials are
locked in a never-ending battle to identify new ways to delay the game — the players to delay
the game and the ofcials to punish their ingenuity.
The list of 'Other Delay Of Game Fouls' (which is contained in Article 5, for those of you keepingscore at home) reads as follows:
 Article 5Other examples of action or inaction that are to be construed as delay of the gameinclude, but are not limited to, the following:(a) a player unnecessarily remains on a dead ball or on a runner who has been downed;(b) the snapper repeatedly snaps the ball after the neutral zone is established and before the Referee can assume his position (see 7-6-3-c);(c) undue delay by either team in assembling after a timeout;(d) a defensive player aligned in a stationary position within one yard of the line of scrimmage makes quick and abrupt actions that are not a part of normal defensive player movement and are an obvious attempt to cause an offensive player(s) to foul(false start). (The Referee shall blow his whistle immediately.);
(e) spiking or throwing the ball in the eld of play after a down has ended, except after 
a score;
The penalty for delay of game is the loss of ve yards to the offending team.In the arena of international nance, the tables have been turned spectacularly, and it is theofcials who are desperately trying to nd ingenious new ways to delay the game whilst clinging
to the most slender of advantages, as all around them players are penalized indiscriminately.
