Well we all know that the CBA is number one on that list, but this somewhat shocking rule change is easily right behind that.
Earlier today, the NFL owners got together and voted to move the kickoff point from the 30-yard line to the 35-yard line, making it almost a lock for any decent kicker to pick up a touchback. At least the owners are finally thinking about the fans... you know, the ones that hate facing Devin Hester in Madden.
I asked Arizona Cardinals' kicker Jay Feely (whom I'm sure many Jets fans wish was still in New York) about this, to which he replied, "[It's] great for me, but will take some excitement out the game."
I 100% agree with Feely and that players like Hester, Joshua Cribbs, and even Brad Smith will now have much less impact on the game. Teams who have been susceptible to big returners, like the Steelers, will certainly benefit. It seems like an ill-advised move, to put it lightly, to me, especially since the Jets were one of the teams who voted for the change and have thrived because of their return team. But on the same note, there won't be anymore Tedd Ginn moments against the Jets... Right?
What do you all think of this new rule change?
