Agree on this one, a timeout is a timeout....
This might be the only suggestion in this thread we can all agree on.
I would agree with the pass interference change except the fact that nobody seems to know what constitutes pass interference. You can watch a handful of games on a Saturday and see each game called differently as well as different interpretations play to play. Giving an offense a huge gain from a completely arbitrary judgment call just seems too damaging to me. This season alone I saw PI called multiple times on passes that were several yards out of bounds which boggles the mind and given that you cannot review a horrible call, I am not sure I want the reward to increase
Having to sit out a play because your hat is knocked off is a dumb rule that we also get reminded of every time it happens.
It used to be that guys weren't strapping up tight enough. Now it is usually a ref missing a call when the opponent is trying to take his head off. Penalize the victim.
Two things come to mind for me. First is targeting. The single worst rule ever implemented. This one is simple to me. It’s all about the helmet. If you’re gong to let players wear them, they’re going to make contact from time to time. If you don’t want that to happen, get rid of the helmets. Anything else is just absurd. Second is fumbles. The offense should never be able to advance the ball on a fumble. If the offense recovers a fumble, they should get the ball at the spot of the fumble. Even if the fumble goes through the end zone. Giving the ball to the D in that situation is the second dumbest rule in the books.
They need to move the kicker back 10 yards and make it part of the game again. If the kicker can still get a touchback from there reward his team by placing the ball on the 20 yard line instead of the 25. Leave the fair catch option and the receiving team gets the ball on the 25....My guess is that most returners getting a chance from the 5 or 10 yard line would be willing to try and return the ball to get better than the 25 yard line.
yep on both
I hate it when a pass is thrown past the LOS but a lineman was more than 3 yards downfield, and it's called a penalty. Hell, I think the whole "ineligible receiver downfield" rule is stupid. You should be able to send 10 out and throw it to your center, if he's open, if you want. No declaring, make the D defend everybody. Offense, offense, offense. GET SOME!
Injury timeouts. If training staff has to come on to the field, the player should sit for the rest of the series, or the rest of the quarter, whichever is longer. Hold up the tempo offense for 15 seconds to allow him to limp off on his own power if required.
I'm also tired of the penalty for not having 7 men on the LOS. Especially when the linemen are in a V and one of them is slightly further back than his counterpart.
And if that reciever otherwise beats his man and has open field ahead? It can't be perfectly retributive but seems to me a hold has potential to prevent large gains more often than not as it typically means an offensive player would have his man beat.
Just the receiver will get the benefits of a PI even when the ball is uncatchable, I don't think we need to do the same with a defensive holding. At least they would have another shot at 3 and a little closer.
Nope It is the speed, size and sudden impact.
Illegal Touching needs to be stopped
I'd love to see that but unfortunately, they'd more likely move it 10 yards closer than farther. That's about the exact opposite of what "football" wants to do w/ the KO's. They've literally discussed doing away w/ KO's altogether.
Really? Take away the armor and watch the debilitating injuries go down. You will still get the ACLs, Torn Muscles…but far fewer head and spine injuries. Take away the facemask and see how many people tackle with their head and face. Watch a little Australian Rules Football or Union Rugby…you tackle with your shoulders and you turn. What good is equipment if you throw a flag every time you wipe someone out?
That's what she said...
Thank you. This...1000x THIS. Leave the goddamn sport alone and get rid of the ridiculous disqualification rules.
