Some proposed rule changes

Some talk of changing OT -- 2 point conversions from the outset? Eliminating kickers entirely in OT? Offenses starting 10 to 15 yards further from the end zone?

Also, Bowlsby quoted in relation to proposed change in targeting rule. Sounds like it'll fail, because the officials aren't supportive, but they are considering (again) a two tiered penalty. Less severe targeting would not result in ejection, more severe targeting would result in ejection.  I've seen some questionable ejections for targeting the last few seasons, this two tiered system seems to make sense. The committee meets in Indy at the end of the month.

College OT is fine and exciting enough.

I'm all for a two-tiered targeting penalty.

I want rules to be as black and white as possible.  I'm going to get tired of fanbases whining about how a tiered rule was applied in their instance.

All subjectivity in sports rules should be kept to an absolute minimum.

Agree the two tier system would cause more problems than it fixes. Also seems to undermine the whole concept of eliminating dangerous hits.

i like the current system but would like to see the first OT for each team start at the 50.

then move in 10 yds for every subsequent OT capping at the 20.

I don't think they need to change OT to keep it shorter due to the 2nd 7 OT game in the last 10 years or so.  Legislating freak occurrences is dumb.
