    What are your thoughts on banning the 3 point stance in the NFL?

    Turns it into even more of a passing league, as OLs need to get into a 3-stance to get a push for a run.

    I understand the safety issues, but taking the 3-point stance out of football would be like banning posting up in basketball. You could still play the game and it might even look the same, but the game would be tremendously different.

    Next, we'll ban running fast and hitting hard.

    Why not ban onside kicks at the start of halves?

    Tough to say what's dumber, that blog or banning the three-point stance.

    that blog was clearly written by someone whose only experience with football is on his PS2.

    If it's an unwritten rule, it's not a rule.

    Anyone ever wonder why I don't take seriously applicants who have mostly fanboi site experience? This is why.

    I'm starting to think Goddell is throwing shit out there to distract from the fact there's going to be a work stoppage after next season.

    I've got a better idea. How about we make all quarterbacks, punters and kickers wear red "no contact" jerseys? Even better, let's make them all wear skirts!

    What kind of Sally Mary is running the NFL these days?
