    Dez is still unsigned, and I’m honestly not very surprised by that. It’ll be interesting to see where he ends up.

    That actually should be a warning sign.

    Re: NFL 2018.1 The off season

    Seems these are the rules that have been drawn up for kickoffs by the competition committee and are being presented at the owners meeting today and Wed.

    ■ No running starts for the kicking team.

    ■ The receiving team must have eight of its 11 players within 25 yards of the line of scrimmage.

    ■ No blocking within 15 yards of the line of scrimmage.

    ■ No wedge blocks by the receiving team.

    Ok, the idea of no running starts is decent- but not sure how it really matters- they also add in a distance that they have to go before they get hit. And a distance for the other team to run from. These guys should be going fast enough between those two distances.

    A better idea is that the kicking team lines up ON the line, doesn't run, and 8 of 11 must stand between 10-15 yards away- so that there' almost no distance between them OR the receiving team runs back to the ball before blocking, which takes all momentum away.

    What's the more interesting scenario?
    -- Watching the NFL fail because of their callousness over concussion issues and team prescribed performance enhancing substances?
    Or,
    -- Watching the NFL fail because the WFL anti-trust litigation had a different outcome and Donald Trump becomes an NFL team owner (and he ultimately goes down with his ship)?

    And the Republic is saved again!

    Rule changes approved plus, "Kickoff team must have five men lined up on either side of the ball". Not sure how that's gonna work on an onside kick.

    I don't think OSK would change at all.

    For that matter, just make all KOs onside from the 50 and be done with it.
