Oh.

Cool. So what's the point of the clock?
To provide consistent pace between snaps.

Note that if a team is trying to milk the clock it DOES become a shot clock. The NFL wants teams to hurry up and snap the damn ball, they don’t want game stoppages

If they actually enforced the rule they way it's supposed to be, then there wouldn't be so many stoppages...because of the repercussions teams would face for violating it.

Add another second on the clock and fucking call it. I don't care. But you have a tool to measure it. Use it.

The NFL does not want delay called unless the snap isn’t coming. It’s not a shot clock.
I don’t think it’s that they don’t want it as much as they don’t want multiple refs managing it. As I said a few posts back, they have one referee who looks at the ball and then looks at the clock and then looks back at the ball once it hit zero. That’s why it happens so late.

Between the punt at the Rams 45 and that clock runoff Shanny is not covering himself In glory. And the guy on the other sidelines already burned all of his timeouts.

Wait til you find out how the play clock gets started.
