Well, Stephen, I read it and instantly assumed that the author had made a simple mistake in including that everyday example to visually clarify the 601' length dimension.

And, as you suggested, I 'translated' it as referencing the length of the playing area (100 yards=300 feet) of TWO football fields plus ONE football. That image helped me gain a clear picture of proportion.

Nevertheless, this all may be heretical to any GHMB posters who worship at the altar of the USA's NFL....
