Default 2009 Rule change proposals

http://www.nfl.com/videos?videoId=09000d5d80f5e234

Can you say pansy league? I mean those are still only proposals but I really don't like the rule with the two man wedge and of course the rules concerning hitting helpless receivers and peelback blocks...

Here's hoping those proposals won't make it into rules.

First the free kick and the guy gets hit hard. Really, this is football you are suppose to hit the other team harder

Then the wedge? Has anyone hear about this large amounts of injuries from this wedge? I mean isn't the wedge one of the basic fundamentals of the return game?

The peel back block? WTF? Are players suppose to let the other players tackle their guys?

You can't hit a guy in the helmet with your shoulder pads? Ok, so I'm suppose to let the guy catch the ball and then give him a few steps before I lay him out. Can anyone see a few fines for Ryan Clark this year/

Must be time for a "state of the league" letter to the commish!!

What a bunch of BS. The only good thing about this is that it requires 75% of the votes to pass.

These owners need to stand up and protect the very essence of their product!

i think its is funny that they are worried about the concussions that occur during the wedge, but its cool for Bens concussions. and um only allowing two people execute a wedge doesnt prevent concussions you morons!!!!!

and for the free kick, of course they have to demolish that "poor" titan its f'n football!!!! how hard of a conept is that to grasp?

ok so if they take out blind side blocks, then why is the defense allowed to tackle a ball carrier when they arent looking? i thought this was an offensive league and since we dont do it their way they try to take away our identity haha well guess a gain d-bags...oh and last time i checked the block sweed and the blocks ward do are NEVER helmet-to-helmet, they are jus making it up as they go

my question is why pereira is doing the vid b/c hes the one who is bailing out after his refs probably had their worst season

damn im miss the way football was played

The pussification of the National Football League continues.

At least there's hockey, where physicality is still welcomed.

They've been making "rule changes" every year SINCE 1994 for just that...TO PLEASE THE FRIGGING FANS!

Yes-they've become such a joke, that it's become pure comedy.

That's the thing. I don't know where they get their idea of what the fans supposedly want. Scoring a lot can be good, but it's not very exciting when half the offense comes from ticky-tack personal fouls and pass interference penalties. Remember a couple years ago, when it seemed like you'd see a "late hit out of bounds" that bailed an opponent out of third-and-long at least two or three times a game? That's incredibly frustrating when you're on defense, and when you're on offense, you almost feel like you should apologize. The last thing we need is more of that, although it sounds like that's the idea they're going for this year.

I also remember all the rule changes they made like not stopping the clock for out of bounds, and going out of their way to rule that the runner's forward progress was stopped instead of acknowledging that he got out of bounds. That was all ostensibly to "speed up the game" and make it more "convenient to watch", except that they waste all the time right back by doing things like going touchdown-commercial-kickoff-another commercial. So I think we all know the reason behind that one.

The first big "rule change" in 1994 over that beyond-5 yards-you-can't-chuck-a-receiver rule...THAT one really drove me nuts. It was hugely successful since the birth of the NFL, and they had to change it all of a sudden.

Honestly-the OT rules are fine just the way they are. I mean especially with more injuries mounting every year, why extend the game to that much longer? And they have to do it b/c Reid and McNabb were too dumb to know the basic rules?

These mother (bleep) better haul back all those "NFL's Hardest Hits" DVDs they sell on their site. Because these rule changes are a freakin joke.
