NEW YORK (AP) The NFL has told its officials not to use index cards or any
other paper to aid in measurements.

In Sunday night’s Cowboys-Raiders game Bengals

, veteran referee Gene Steratore tried to slide
what appeared to be an index card between the tip of the ball and the end of the
chain while measuring for a first down. When the card didn’t slide through,
Steratore signaled a first down for Dallas. He said he had decided it was a
first down before the odd measurement.

NFL officiating chief Alberto Riveron on Thursday confirmed what Steratore

time I saw it done was four to five years ago. That is not the norm. Gene made

this season. ”I have already done that.”
