    Onside kick rule

    http://www.cdispatch.com/sports/article.asp?aid=17883

    Sounds like they are changing the onside kick rule. It has to bounce twice now and you have to give them a yard halo?

    That sucks, the onside alone has helped win us a couple of games. Mahoney was the man.

    Also new rule about touchbacks in there as well...

    BOOOOO

    Re: Onside kick rule

    The new onside kick rule is absolutely terrible and pathetic.

    Want players safe? Awesome, put flags on all of them.

    Re: Onside kick rule

    That's kind of a joke of a rule. If they don't want the play to happen, just ban it. Not like the odds were that great before, and it keeps the possibility of a late game comeback alive.

    Re: Onside kick rule

    Terrible change IMO. Will make games less exciting over time as you see far less comebacks.

    I guess we'll just have to never need a comeback ;)

    Re: Onside kick rule

    I don't see how the new onside rule protects anyone. It just makes it harder, which I guess will decrease the amount its attempted, but it does not make the actual play itself safer.

    Also, this is kind of BS...

    A player who loses his helmet will be allowed to continue his action, but if he continues with the play beyond that action, a 15-yard penalty will be assessed.

    Re: Onside kick rule

    When former Rutgers University player Eric LeGrand was paralyzed as a result of an injury sustained during a kickoff in 2010, then Rutgers coach Greg Schiano advocated for the removal of kickoffs from the game. He found some support for eliminating kickoffs, including University of Georgia coach Mark Richt.
    Maybe we should eliminate rushing the passer because we all saw the Theismann incident. We should also get rid of kickoffs because of the above incident. Get rid of tackling because every year someone breaks their leg or tears up their knee because their leg gets caught under the tackler.

    No kidding. Like it's that easy to just ignore momentum/instincts & just stop.

    Lawsuits are going to turn the NCAA and NFL in to powder puff football.

    Wow, I hadn't heard about this.. That's ridiculous. (The helmet thing I mean. For some reason it didn't quote.)

    This is BS, unbelievable. Every player knows the risk of playing. These NFL lawsuits are ridiculous.

    Re: Onside kick rule

    What a joke. First they make it so there are never kick returns anymore now (essentially) no onside? Just strap the players with flags and call it good. With the rate they are going with these rule changes we will be there in 5 years anyways.

    Re: Onside kick rule

    I would imagine that there will be no kick-offs at all in 10 years.

    Tackling will probably be modified to something like "first contact" (two-hand touch football).

    What this rule is doing is preventing the ball from beimg bounced into the air. The receiving player is left exposed with the kicking team allowed to hit him in the current rules. This way, it gives the player the chance to call a fair catch. This really ends up being the same situation as a punt return. Without a fair catch rule players would have been killed by now. By requiring a second bounce, all onside kicks will presumably be low bouncers that don't have the risk of injury.

    It is sad, but I could honestly see this. You just take the ball at the 20 after the opponent scores and to start the half. There just aren't kickoffs anymore.

    I don't know where else we are going. They are changing the rules to encourage more touchbacks already. Teams will probably practice high kicks to the goal line to try to pin the receiving team, the NCAA won't like it so they will change it again. You also have the new onside rules that are going to reduce the impact of those plays as well. It will get to the point that you just kick the ball out of the endzone every time and the clock won't even run. Why even bother with the play?
