We are five games into the season, what do you think of the rule changes this year?
I like the new illegal contact rules. We are seeing a lot less pushing and shoving between Receivers and DBs, and lots of spectacular catches. It is has not been all one-sided though, the DBs are playing off and going for the interceptions instead of getting into a wrestling match with the receiver. :thup: :thup: :thup:
The new point after rules add an extra dimension to the game. I think later in the season, we will see more teams going for two points. :thup: :thup:
The restriction on the front five of the kicking team has done nothing to change the dynamics of punt returns. It is a pointless rule, which I think is unfair to the kicking team. The five linemen need eyes in the back of their heads to avoid a penalty. :thdn: :thdn: :thdn:
Kudos to the CFL for making rule changes to improve the game. I hope they keep the good changes, and drop the bad one next year.
