Unless I'm misunderstanding you, losing yardage via negative legal plays like a reverse pass would not help a team hold possession indefinitely. For example, if on 1st and 10 the team runs a reverse that loses 20 yards, they are now faced with 2nd and 30 yards to go. Thus, they must still advance 10 yards beyond the original line of scrimmage in order to retain possession.

However, you left out the actual way they might retain possession indefinitely -- penalties. If, after said failed reverse, and now facing the 2nd down and 30 yards to go, the defense commits a penalty that results in less yardage gained than the previous loss (basically, anything other than pass interference on a long pass attempt) but awards a 1st down to the offense, the offense could conceivably continue to reset the downs (via the penalty) while not gaining any total yardage.

Make sense?

Yeah, To be honest, I have only a vague grasp of the rules of football. I forgot that yards to a down are counted from the original line of scrimmage at the first down.


Now, let's do a big of light Googleing. Ah, here we are:

If a team started a drive on their own 1-yard line, took 4 downs to make a first down every time, got just enough every time to get the first down, allowed the play clock to nearly expire before every play, took 5 seconds to run each play, never threw an incomplete pass, and the clock never stopped... that would mean 1 play was run every 50 seconds. It would take 4 plays to get to the 11-yard line, 4 more to get to the 21-yard line, etc, for a total of 40 plays to get a touchdown. These 40 plays would take 2,000 seconds, or 33 minutes, 20 seconds. However, even if the drive started at the beginning of the game, or the beginning of the second half, the drive would end at the end of the half, for a maximum of 30 minutes.


So from a practical standpoint, it looks like you can indeed hold posession of the ball for an entire half, thus allowing for only two "regular" commercial breaks (end of quarter and 2 minute warning) and forcing 8 TV Timeouts.

I wonder what the real-world record is for this?

Don't hurt my feelings any, not my home or equipment. Judging by the space left to work with, doesn't appear they had much of a choice.

It's a Skyline, HP numbers are EVERYTHING!

That video is only 3 days old. It's the new Alpha Omega from AMS. I'm sure they will get video of it demolishing everything the world can throw at it soon.

The Alpha 12 has been setting, literally, every record for the GTR. The Alpha 12 is something like 1300~whp, the Omega is 1600~whp. Keep in mind that these are full weight, street cars.

while he'll always be the voice I hear when I think of the Misfits, I still think of him as the Cheeseburglar.

fiend club points if you get the reference.
