    Owners approve new rules changes

    he most significant rule deals with “launching” to level a defenseless player (i.e. leaving both feet prior to contact to spring forward and upward into an opponent or using any part of the helmet to initiate forcible contact against any part of the opponent’s body). Not only will there be a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty, but the launching defender can be ejected from the game if the action is judged flagrant by the officiating crew......

    Moving the kickoff makes no sense.

    A player in the act or just after throwing a pass.


    So, now if the QB is about to get hit all he has to do is throw the ball and its a 15 yd penalty??

    If that is the case, we should put flags on the QB to make it more fair
