have you seen a fair catch kick?
Fair catch kicks are somewhat common. At the end of the half when a team just pooches it high, it is not uncommon at all for the up-man to call for the fair catch.
That's just the catch part. If I remember the rule correctly (and it's actually still a rule), the receiving team is also allowed to try a completely unmolested field goal from the spot of the fair catch.

Not in about 40 years, and I'm damned if I can figure out why. With today's kickers, that ought to be almost routine on any punt or kickoff with less than a minute left in a half, outside the recievers' 20.
