The difficulty in renormalizing Yang-Mills theory in the light-cone gauge is examined in the Becchi-Rouet-Stora (BRS) invariance formalism. It is shown that the BRS-invariant and nonlocal counterterms, which are necessary for the consistent determination of the divergent coefficients, cannot be absorbed by redefining the fields in the action. A set of renormalization constants for Greens functions is also given.
