NFL change that may happen.

[quote]TIME sat in on meeting between Goodell and Rich McKay, head of the NFL's powerful competition committee. Goodell brought up a proposal promoted by Greg Schiano, coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers: after a touchdown or field goal, instead of kicking off, a team would get the ball on its own 30-yard line, where it's fourth-and-15. The options are either to go for it and try to retain possession, or punt. If you go for it and fall short, the opposing team would take over with good field position. In essence, punts would replace kickoffs, and punts are less susceptible to violent collisions than kickoffs.[/quote][url=http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/roger-goodell-talks-chiefs-eliminating-kickoffs-player-safety-164839047--nfl.html]source[/url] For those that watch American football, how do you feel about this? NOTE - This is not known when this will take effect, if it even does.

  • That's idiotic. Trying to make the sport safer for the players is ruining the game. Players are even getting penalties for apparently having the intention of hurting another player when all they're trying to do is tackle! Like someone else said, might as well give the players flags and turn it into flag football.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] A Deaf Boy [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Thrasher Fan This HAS to be satire. No one is that retarded.[/quote][/quote] Sadly, I don't believe it is because ESPN has an article on this. If they're really considering getting rid of the kickoff, they should just place the ball at the 20-yard line after each score.

  • I don't like it. It would eliminate the on-side kick. The kick off? Ridiculous. [Edited on 12.06.2012 5:43 PM PST]

  • I've got a better change: replace Goodell with a commissioner who isn't an idiot.

  • Why would he do this? To prevent injuries? Every single play has the potential to be very dangerous. Taking away the kickoff is just stupid.
