There are a few rules and regulations that I’d like to float by the good folks on the forum.
I don’t like the idea of moving the ball back to the 1 for goal line stands. If the ball is on the 1 inch line it should stay there. Caveat: the defence never has to back up farther than the goal line. In real short situations the lines would be nose to nose.
Move the hash marks closer to the sidelines. In the 70’s the hashs were moved closer together by 10 yards. A wide side of the field effectively no longer exists and the running game has suffered. There are fewer options on running plays now.
Move the kickoff back to the 45 from the 35. Kicking off or receiving used to be a strategic move. Now it makes no difference.
What does everyone think? What else deserves discussion?
Training camps soon!
