NGT: NCAA makes more changes to KO rule; elimination next?

Defenderdawg : 4/13/2018 4:56 pm
The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved altering football’s kickoff rules to allow the receiving team to fair catch the kick inside the 25-yard line and have it result in a touchback.

The Football Rules Committee made the proposal to continue efforts to increase the number of touchbacks during kickoffs since fewer injuries occur during kickoffs that result in touchbacks than on kickoffs that are returned. All other aspects of the kickoff play will remain the same.

The kickoff should remain untouched but the NFL is hell bent on destroying it

One of the reasons that the NFL mandates penalties (mostly phantom holds or blocks in the back) a penalty on every return is that they are trying to condition fans to get frustrated and hate the return. That way they won't be so upset when they eliminate it.

"Oh well who cares every return is a flag anyway"

Your post is counterintuitive to viewership, and thus NFL revenue. The NFL held the golden goose by the neck for decades. Not unlike a bunch of rich, entitled, geriatric, patriarchs they were unable to market their product successfully until Summeral and Madden, put them into every household. Enter Goodell, and the market driven approach of the last two decades, and the ownership, the NFL front office, as well as the NFLPA, all realised the wave they were riding. The product we as fans received, and that the NFL, jammed down our throat, was laden with problems. Mainly, the new contract that the NFLPA negotiated, as well as length and frequency of commercial endorsements, compounded by the austerity inherent to new stadium architecture, food and drink prices, parking, and seat licensing, etc., and teams are pricing out the fan base that put them in the cat bird seat. Add to that the Sunday, Monday, Thursday, and London games, and today's loyal fan base (what little remains of the loyalists) watches a shit show, for at least 7 weeks of the season. The worst thing th at could have happened to the NFL, was the discovery of CTE, and the front office did everything possible to keep that from entering public domain. The rule changes, as specifically related contact, are not popular with the front office, nor are they popular with ownership, or the fans, as is evidenced by the largest quantifiable drop in viewer ship last year, over the four decades I've been watching. The NFL, is once again trying to plug an antiquated dike, with nothing more than a handful of earplugs. I for one can no longer wait until week 5 or 6, to watch decent ball, only to have the game ruined, because a touchdown was over turned, because a receiver whom placed both feet in the end zone did not make a move consistent with that of some enigmatic, avatar. Stadiums filled with yuppies, games exceeding four hours, rules left to the subjective interpretation of some clown not even present, and the eradication of the philosophy of a running game, and a good defense, to name but a few of the problems indicative to the League, makes me forlorn for the game of old. I think the NFL has jumped the shark, all the bandaids in the world cannot stop the bleeding. There is always "YouTube," and games of old, before there was some anything streaming on the screen, and fantasy sports freaks didn't dictate play on the field.
Sorry for the diatribe, guess I'm a bit more disgusted than I would like to admit.
