Any other time we'd have a couple of hundred posts by now about NFL rules changes that actually can have an effect on the way the game is played (and its pussification), instead we have hundreds of posts about the NFL's concern with a song being played at the games. There were seven changes to kickoff rules which will slow down the action and make an onside kick even harder to pull off, all in the name of player safety. Sounds to me like another reason to push people away from the game. No running starts - the kicking team players must now be within one yard of the kickoff line rather than five yards to keep them from getting a running start. No two-man wedges - with a complicated explanation that requires a video to explain. No uneven lines. Five guys must now be on each side of the ball rather than the old minimum of four in order to minimize the kicking team's advantage in an onside kick situation. Those are the major ones I remember but it is a total of seven changes - the article I read didn't even attempt to define two of them and the NFL can't even put it on paper apparently but they did make that video that should chart it out for anyone interested enough. I didn't even bother looking for it because I had already wasted so much time trying to find out about real rules changes when a couple of hundred articles talked about that song.
