Why? It's incredibly rare, difficult to pull off, highly athletic and skillful, and I've never seen anyone get hurt. What is the possible objection to this?

2 is clearly the worst rule. Fix your protection scheme and get your own freak, intelligent athlete

Damn, that'd be sweet. Not big deal, plus adds some spice to the kicking game.

I understand that sentiment, but it's so bad it's good. It's only 5 yards.

I don't think teams would seriously even attempt this, since it makes more sense to just kick it short, both in terms of yardage and potential turnovers.

I suspect that the real reason behind this potential change is that the NFL moving up the kickoff line and changing the touchback start to the 25 yard line backfired on them and actually made kickoff returns more prevalent, as teams simply kick short on purpose now in order to allow their coverage teams more time to tackle the returner.

I honestly don't see how that would be compared to the XFL.
Increases the value of a kicker a little bit, and I mean it is only 5 yards.

I mean it is a better rule than some of the other ones. I'd rather see that than shortening the OT rule. Not a fan of that. I realize we don't see a lot of ties but there has been 12 min drives in the NFL before.

Giants started on the twenty against the Vikings in the playoffs and has the ball for almost 13 min and ran out the clock on the game and didn't even score on the drive.

Kind of cruddy if your defense was to actually stop them without scoring and they ran the clock all the way out of time and the other teams offense would never even get a shot at scoring.

I guess I'm the only one who supports proposal 2. The problem is that you are going to going to see long snappers trained to snap their heap up and absorb the contact with their face, to draw a 15 yard penalty. You literally are not allowed to line up over the center because supposedly they are too focused on snapping the ball that they can't protect themselves. If that is a rule, then having them worry about players jumping over them is a more obvious extension of that. I expect this rule to pass.

#14 is the removing John Harbaugh's hold everyone and take an intentional safety play. That should pass as well.

I love #6. They badly need to make kickoffs more interesting and this is the only way to do it, while also eliminating returns. Also, my team has Justin Tucker Cool

While I agree with this and like it too, they'd have to review it if another team believes it didnt make across the upright which means more time for the game which nobody wants........

If this were to pay I'd definitely make it nonreviewable.

FGs aren't reviewable, so this wouldn't be either.

They'd need to spot two officials under goal post, meaning two less watching for the block in the back on 80% of kick returns. I'm ok with that too.

So how would it work? If that play happened and there were 7 holds they would be penalized an unsportmanlike and the game would be over anyway?
