Our proposal to punt the kickoff has already been partially adopted in the AAL. Now, it appears it’s picking up steam within the NFL competition committee as well.
The caveats in the Denver proposal are silly1, especially the one that disallows punting, since that’s kind of a key feature of our proposal. But I’m shocked there’s any motion on this at all, and I’m confident that once the wall is breached the league will get to a better solution eventually.
Here’s to hoping…
Only once-per-game, only during the fourth quarter, and they have to go for it, so punting is not an option. ↩
