    ..........and therefore no onside kick for a trailing team?
    No one remembers who came in second.

    this sport has been dying a slow death that started when the Mel Blount rule was put into affect
    It is true that the very basis of the sport is changing. It seems that a receiver reaching for a pass near the first down markers automatically gets a first down. There is no legal way anymore to stop a receiver in his tracks or jar the ball loose in bang bang fashion. The best you can do is to sort of wrap up and dump the reciever as in rugby. That tacks on a couple of yards and gives the offense an automatic first down. I worry about the future of the game along with you.

    my first thought is that this would suck. I dont like seeing players injured but this is a viloent game and it is part of the sport.
    Outlaw down hill skiing, or motorcross, or cliff diving...etc. Injury is part of the game.

    Look at the bright side, when there is no more special teams, think of all the money we will have to play with to get some better talent.

    this makes me sick. Get this pansy out of here already. he is changing the game so much that records will mean nothing in 10 years. he will also ad a no sack policy like during the probowl.

    Let me ask again. If we eliminate kickoffs, what replaces the on sides kick for a team that is trailing?

    excellent point. this clown is trying to change the game. I have a feeling ten years from now we will be finding a new sport.
