Default NFL Proposed Rule Changes

Some interesting things in here:

Link to PFT

There are a few in here that I really like: 6 cameras, 90-53 cutdown, trading rules, review changes.

9. Allow the referee to consult with members of the NFL officiating department during replay reviews. The referee would be able to speak with the command center in New York to help in reviewing a play.
They should just let HQ NY do the dang reviews. It's the same cameras and same footage. Remove the element of the local referees saving face and get the right call.

Just move it to the opponent's 2 yard line and end the charade.

Onside kicks would be awesome in that scenario.

Do not like moving kick off even farther up...

Why the pass interference change?

Are they going to decide if the flags will be 18" or 24" for QBs to wear?

What effect will this have on ZBS heavy schemes...?
Quote:
When the NFL institutes new rules designed to protect quarterbacks and receivers, defensive players often ask, “What about us?” This year, the NFL isn’t considering any new rules designed to protect quarterbacks or receivers — but is considering a rule to protect defensive players.

That rule is a simple two-word addition to the rulebook that will likely save the knees of some defensive linemen and linebackers. The words “or side” would be added to the rule that says players can’t block an opponent in the back of the legs.
...
The owners will vote on the proposal at next week’s league meeting. It would be a major surprise if the proposal doesn’t pass.

It doesn't apply where the ZBS blocks are made.

Default Re: NFL Proposed Rule Changes

I like all of these:
Quote:
Rules Changes:
3. Eliminate overtime in the preseason. (who cares if a P/S game ends in a tie anyway?)

By Laws Revisions:
1. Raise the number of active players on game day from 46 to 49 for regular-season games played on a day other than Sunday or Monday, excluding Week One.

2. Raise the practice squad limit from eight players to 10 players.

3. Permit clubs to trade players prior to the start of the league year.

4. Eliminate the cut-down to 75 players during training camp and instead just have one cut-down from 90 players to 53 players.

5. Permit more than one player to return to the active list from injured reserve so that any player on injured reserve could return after six weeks.

Resolution proposal:
1. Permit a home team with a retractable roof to open or close its roof at halftime, instead of having to determine at the start of the game whether it is open or closed.

LMAO!!!

Is that ref block animation going to be in next year's Madden?

I can't wait until the next owner's meeting:

"is the NFL going to ban chest bumping, butt slapping, and trash talking?"

lol! Classic!

Although, I did not know that someone had knocked the goalposts out of alignment with a dunk.

WTF?
