OK, we all pretty much agree that there should be a PP in the CFL, but the real question is, what kinda Penalty?
I say it should be like an extension of the No Yards rule in that:
- Punts that fly out of bounds w/o hitting the ground: 5 yard penalty from where the ball went OB
- Punts that hit the ground but bonce OB: no penalty, ball spotted where it when out.
- Punts that go OB in the end zone (either by flying OB, bouncing OB, Hitting the uprights, consented by the receiver or stopped in the zone): Single Point, Ball spotted at the 35 yard line.
- no points for punts going beteew the uprights.
what do you think?
Note to players: if your off side, allow the receveir room to get the ball and run with it! if your going a a receveier, slow it down when you get clsoe to him and when he has the ball, GET HIM!!! If your on side, GET THE BALL! but leave the recevier alone!
