New rules!?

So the NFL has proposed several rule changes to the 2016 season… Some make sense some need a lawyer and a thesaurus to explain:

  • Permanently moves the line of scrimmage for Try kicks to the defensive team’s 15-yard line, and allows the defense to return any missed Try. Uh….. Okay so I’m guessing this means they are moving the extra point kick back and if you some how MISS from 15 yards the defense can run it back for a TD… I think… Im still awaiting my lawyers definitive answer
  • Permits the offensive and defensive play callers on the coaching staffs to use the coach-to-player communication system regardless of whether they are on the field or in the coaches’ booth. I have absolutely no idea what this means… I think they are allowed to talk to each other now… I didn’t realize there was a previous problem here
  • Makes all chop blocks illegal. This one needed to be in place, chop blocks bad very bad.
  • Expands the horse collar rule to include when a defender grabs the jersey at the name plate or above and pulls a runner toward the ground. Why are we wearing jerseys anyways I mean hell put can not pull hair in here too
  • Makes it a foul for delay of game when a team attempts to call a timeout when it is not permitted to do so. I thought it was already a penalty to call a timeout if you didn’t have one… Uh okay…
  • Eliminates the five-yard penalty for an eligible receiver illegally touching a forward pass after being out of bounds and re-establishing himself inbounds, and makes it a loss of down. Go out of bounds, re-establish your credit, catch ball… Wait no… sorta…
  • Eliminates multiple spots of enforcement for a double foul after a change of possession. This I think is the result of a double negative following a ghostly possession by an phantasm of multiple personalities…

So yeah… WTF…. Sounds good… why the hell didn’t they come up with something for the absurd “is it a catch” issue we watched play out ALL freaking year.
