The CFL has brought the excitement of the kicking game back:
- Rule 5, Section 4 – Kick from Scrimmage
Rule change – add as Article 3, and renumber articles that follow:
“Kick from Scrimmage Going Out of Bounds in Flight?
On a kick from scrimmage going out of bounds in flight between the 20-yard lines, the receiving team will have the option of taking possession at the point the ball went out of bounds in flight, or having a 10-yard penalty applied against the kicking team at the point of the last scrimmage, with the down repeated.
Rationale for change – Forces kicking team on punts and field goal attempts to land the ball in the field of play.
