Default A rule change that could further sissify the NFL.

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-nflmeetings

Overtime will draw most of the headlines, but also on the agenda are:

— Further protection of defenseless players.

Unnecessary roughness penalties were up slightly in 2009. The committee found instances of hits it would like to see changed by lowering the target area and ensuring a receiver not only has completed a catch, but has had time to protect himself. A defensive player would be prohibited from launching into the receiver in any way that causes the defensive player’s helmet, facemask, shoulder or forearm to forcibly strike the receiver’s head.


I feel bad for ref's. I'd hate to have to be the guy calling this crap.

The next expansion team should use pink and fusia as their uniform colors.

wtf?

they should penalize a QB 5 yards for throwing a ball in traffic or to a defenseless WR.

Next rule - Eliminate all tackling and and use one hand touch rules, of course after the ball has been caught.

This is dumb and you know why i heard the OT rules are only for the post season? It is because they do not want the players on the field any more then they have to to prevent injury during the regular season Somebody remind these idiots this is FOOTBALL!

Let's just do away with defenses altogether since fans just wanna see scoring by the bunches.

Just eliminate the intentional grounding penalty and add chiffon and a feather boa to the QBs uniform.

Did it ever occur to these morons that this is real football. I have had enough of these stupid pansies trying to take away the hard hit in the NFL just to coddle offensive players. This is football, if they really want to protect the players they should just discourage them from joining the NFL. Someone should tell these morons that football is a man's game and that these players shouldn't be treated like girls.
