Default Pansy League

Wow those new rule changes are LAME!
I think we are about two years away from the NFL eliminating tackling all together and becoming a two hand touch league.

The UFL is really looking better right now. I hate to say it, but there couldn't be any more of a better time for them to start up. The National Little Pansy League is staring at an uncapped year, and more stupid rule changes and Patriots favoritism by Roger Goofell.

On kickoffs, no blocking wedge of more than two players will be allowed. Also, the kicking team can't have more than five players bunched together pursuing an onside kick.
Is this a joke?

A 15-yard penalty will be enforced if a player delivers a blindside block to the head of a defender using his helmet, forearm or shoulder. The penalty will be enforced if a helmet, shoulder or forearm strikes the head or neck of the defender.
Might as well throw a flag on EVERY DAMN PLAY from now on then. Hey dumbass (this means YOU, Goodell), ever seen players with strange streaks of paint on their helmets which don't match their team's colors? Pretty much everywhere on the field during every game, you say? Ever wonder where those streaks come from? Yeah, that's right, they're from incidental helmet-to-helmet contact, you anal-retentive douchebag!

Stop worrying about whether Hines Ward hits too hard and get a new CBA in place already.

When will the league just leave well-enough alone?

Don't we already have enough rules?

Is there any way to, like, un-pass those rules? Idiot penalties already influence the course of the game way too often.
