  • More Rules Changes For 2010

    • A defenseless player cannot be hit in the head or neck by an opponent who launches himself and uses his helmet, shoulder or forearm to make contact. Previously, this applied only to receivers.

    • When a ballcarrier loses his helmet, the whistle will blow and the ball will be placed at the spot where the player lost it.

    • The umpire will be stationed behind the offensive backfield rather than in the linebackers area.

    • During a field goal or extra point, no player can line up directly across from the snapper. Previously, a player needed to have his helmet outside the snapper's shoulder pads.

    • A dead ball personal foul on the final play of the second or fourth quarters will cause a 15-yard penalty on the second-half or overtime kickoff. Previously, no penalty was enforced.

    • If a punt returner makes a fair catch signal and muffs the ball, he is entitled to a "reasonable opportunity" to catch the muff before it hits the ground without interference of the coverage team. In case of a penalty, the ball will be placed at the spot of the interference but no yardage marked off.

    • When a ball strikes a videoboard (as one punt did last preseason at Cowboys Stadium), guide wire or sky cam, the play is whistled dead and replayed. The game clock is reset to when the play started.

    • If the clock is stopped in the final minute of either half for a replay review but would not have stopped without the review, officials will run off 10 seconds before resuming play. Either team can take a timeout to avoid the runoff.
    Thoughts ??

    I think these rules both suck.

            I ******* hate the muff punt rule. The defenders are already giving him a chance to catch the ball without interference. Now if he drops it, they have to give him a chance to recover his own **** up?

              The only good rule change is the umpire relocation.

                  This is a good rule. This ****** the Dolphins last year in the Saints game. They stopped the clock to review a touchdown as the time expired, the Saints were out of timeouts, and they reversed the play to have the ball down at the one. Since they didn't get the call right initially and had to review it, the Saints had extra time and were able to get a field goal that they wouldn't have been able to get if the initial call was correct. This rule prevents that.

                    That rule hasn't change. It's more of a clarification. Technically you haven't muffed the punt til it hits the ground, its just for cases when the returner "double catches" the ball or it bounces off his chest. He still has the right to catch the ball without contact until it touches the ground.

                      Which is ******* stupid. The guy touches the ball, he can get hit. If a receiver touches the ball, he can get hit. It should be just like a tipped ball. The ball is tipped, **** should go down. If the guy touches it and doesn't hold onto it, it should be a fumble, and **** should go down. Goodell is so ******* annoying with these dumbass rules.

                        the thing is it isnt to give him a chance to catch it but to ensure safety.

                          The NFL is getting softer and softer each year, this is starting to irritate me and making the NFL slowly more boring to watch.

                              The umpire position is a great move. The defenseless player thing makes sense, as does the personal foul enforcement. The rest seem completely unnecessary.

                              Goodell doesn't make rules changes.

                              No, when he calls for a fair catch he can't be hit at all.
