    Kickoff, change of posession rule changes made

    Back to 2005 clock rules (thank god).

    Kickoffs moved back to the 30 yard line.

    Re: Kickoff, change of posession rule changes made

    Thank you! Those clock rules were terrible. I'm undecided about the kickoff. If your team doesn't have a decent kicker or very good coverage, and the other team does have good special teams, you're odds of winning are great lessened if the other team always has great field position. Coversely, if you have a great return team, and a good kicker you will have a big advantage. This could be applied to other parts of the game of course, but we're just talking about one rule change that can greatly effect a game.

    I wonder who will kick off? I remember when Shaggy kicked it pretty much landed at the 20. Hopefully that has improved.

    Re: Kickoff, change of posession rule changes made

    I'm glad about both rule changes. If you kickoff from the 35 and have any kind of kicker with a breath of wind at his back, it's a touchback. It puts more pressure on your special teams, which I like. The change of posession rule was just stupid.
