Official SB Nation Petition to reverse the Kickoff Rule Change


This rule change is one of the single most ridiculous things I have ever seen in my life.

Why even kick the ball? Let's place it at the 20 and ignore it. Also, while we're at it, in the interest of safety, let's use a computer to simulate the probability of a completion of a pass, and use mathematics and algorithms to determine the outcome of plays. This way, the NFL will be much safer, and suitably more boring. Exactly what fans and the league want to see.

 

Please, vote on this post, share it around SBNation, and put your name down, so that this ridiculous rule can be reversed and so that the core principles of the sport can be retained. Namely contact (which is seemingly going to be abolished, to no-ones agreement) and the old adage that there are 3 phases to Football.

In case anyone has forgotten already (I wouldn't be surprised)

They are:

Offense

Defense

SPECIAL TEAMS.

 

Can someone forward the memo to Roger Goodell?

 

Many thanks for your time and signature, let's change this rule before the sport we love is turned into something unrecognisable.

 

[Note: please share this around SBN, as I am limited to a certain number at a time due to spam protection. if we all chip in and post the link to this as a fanshot to other blogs, we can spread the word and HOPEFULLY make a change.]
