    ILLEGAL HITS
    NFL to be more aggressive with suspensions for illegal hits next season. Rules defining defenseless players expanded to eight categories:
    • QB in act of throwing
    • Receiver trying to catch pass
    • Runner in grasp with forward progress stopped
    • Player fielding punt or kickoff
    • Kicker or punter during kick
    • QB after change of possession
    • Receiver who receives blind-side block
    • Player already on ground

    KICKOFF CHANGES?
    • Competition committee will propose moving kickoff to 35-yard line, and bringing touchback out to 25. No changes for touchbacks on any other plays, with ball coming out to 20.
    • No player other than kicker would be allowed to line up more than 5 yards behind ball.
    • Outlawing wedge on kickoffs; all blocking wedges were reduced to two players in 2009.

    REPLAY CHANGES?
    • Committee will propose making all scoring plays reviewable. Replay official would order replays on any touchdowns, field goals, safeties and extra points without the coaches needing to challenge. Similar to current system for final two minutes of each half and overtime.
    • Eliminating third coach's challenge if he is successful on first two.

    NFL SCHEDULE
    NFL plans to release regular-season schedule in mid-April, despite current work stoppage.
    NO-GO
    There will be no "Calvin Johnson rule" proposal on what is a catch.

    can the NFL cut the crap already? They are phasing out hitting even more now. Just put the little flags on the hips and completely emasculate the game.

    Seriously, what the fuck is going on? The NFL will be unwatchable within a few years if this shit keeps up. So I can't hit the QB once he starts to throw, then I have to let the receiver catch it because I can't hit him. Really NFL?

    whats the purpose for guys making all these millions once we make it flag football? I thought we paid them all these millions, because they put their body in harms ways.

    1960-1990 get your ass beat get paid nothing

    2012 get paid 5 million+ a yr and play flag football..

    Im seriously sick of Goddell, he's ruining arguably the best sport ever known to man. It's becoming such a laughing stock.

    I sure the hell hope whoever takes over after Goddell is gone can reverse some of the damage he's caused the game.
