My preference is to not try to catch it if you're fielding it close to the goal line.Fair enough, I mean, if they are going to do something like that, then have the ball at the 15 for a fair catch.
It applies to KO”s. Not punts. If that is what you are saying.I don't mind a ball placement rule, but the 25 yard line penalizes the kicker and the team.
I’m betting it stays. If concussions do drop even close to the modeling it’s here to stay and though it changes the game, player safety is worth it. It’s not like many kick returns are big returns even now. It also makes some kickers like a couple of older guys, more valuable since they couldn’t kick off wellIt is for 2023 only….for now….
This is seriously messed up. It's no longer tackle football. Might as well turn it into flag football.Interesting. So, they added "fair catches" to kickoffs. So, if the team kicks it to the opponents 5 yard line, the player just needs to fair catch it and it goes on the 25? Well, alrighty then....
