In a way this move would create extra draft picks for the Steelers,
As we would not have to watse draft picks on punters, long snappers and tiny kick returners

Sepulveda, Holba, Archer, Rainey

Yup.

Pretty soon it will be 50 minutes of referees explaining flags and 8 minutes of referees consulting with Al Riveron in NY and 2 minutes of actual football action that counts. Not only are they taking from the game, they also add more and more new rules to cause more flags every year.

The new football league that Polamalu is part of already announced that they aren't going to have kickoffs. Anyways, it almost seemed like 75% of kick returns seemed to be called back by a hold or block in the back anyways.

Myself, I'm pretty much done with being a big fan of football in general, I hate it just because of all the replay reviews. I'm not a football fan anymore, just a fan of the Steelers and Pitt, I will watch only the games of those 2 teams and that's it. Sorry, the sport sucks.

Watching the NFL, for me, is what I imagine it's like being stuck in a loveless marriage.

I just want us to go back to the way things used to be...when we were happy.

I assume after scores teams would just take the ball at their 25 (wonder if they would still allow onside kicks?).

On punts I assume you just put a guy back to fair catch - which means you get a guy who just kicks the crap out of the ball with no concern of a big return because of no hang time.

This new league says for an onside kick, instead you can take a 4th and 10 from your own 35.

Wow....Ben with our current offense would probably convert that at least 25% of the time.....or like 10X the conversion rate on an expected onside kick.
