IT’S THE FIELD, NOT THE CHAINS (COMMENT). I had posted here on the football ritual involving the ten yard chain and noted a recent game in which the chain did not reach the ten yards between the 20 yard line and the 30 yard line. I mentioned three logical explanations. Stan commented that the chains are tested before each game, while yard markers are not marked exactly. I thank him for the comment which clarifies something I have always wondered about. I should have pointed out that I don’t think that any errors with the chains favor one team or another. For me, any errors just add to the mystery of the ritual.
