Too Many Safety Touches

Teams are making a mockery of the safety touch. Even Sask was giving up two points in a blow out rather than punt. I think this rule needs to be changed.

Couple of options:

  1. make them punt/kick off from the 10 yard line.

  2. if they give up the safety on third down they should turn the ball over at the line of scrimmage. Now if a team is worried about field position and want to give up two points they have to do it before third down.

THE WAY WE SEE SAFETY TOUCHES BEING GIVEN UP IS SO BORING AND QUITE FRANKLY TURNS ME OFF THE CFL GAME.

I dont like the strategy part of the safety it takes the game out of the players hands.

Who decides to try on 3rd and one?

Who decides punt or field goal?

Who decides to kick or receive?

Who decides to pass or run?

Who decides to punt out of bounds?

Who...?

Fire all the coaches!
