In 37 years of officiating, I have never seen a team take repeated delay of game penalties to run out the clock. They take the play clock down to close to zero and then snap the ball, followed by the knee. In fact, there is a rule against a team fouling repeatedly or intentionally to either conserve or eat up time.

Remember, there is nothing stopping the teams from ending a game early. If both agree......it's over.

Rarely does that happen.
