I know this is not LSU related, but can anyone make sense of this statement



In relation to the NFL getting rid of kick offs

quote:

Goodell and McKay discussed an idea brought up by Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano in which a team, instead of kicking off, would get the ball at its own 30-yard line in a fourth-and-15 situation. The team then would punt the ball away or, to replace an onside kick, could go for it and, if it failed to get a first down, the opposing squad would start with great field position.


edited to add: the older I get, the dumber I get.

They are saying instead of having a kickoff you would spot the ball at the 30 yd line of the kicking team.
You would then have two options.

1: punt the ball to the other team, giving them the ball, which would be live a normal kickoff but with punting instead of kicking on a tee.

2: lining up with normal offense. If you can sucessfully make it 15 yards in this one play, you keep the ball. If not the other team gets it where the play is called dead, just like if you were 4 and 15. This would be the equivalent of an onside kick.

Idea is essentially no more kick offs.

"kicking team" would get ball at own 30 yard line. Can either punt the ball to the other team at the beginning of game or after scores.

Or get a 15 yard play that would replace the onside kick. If "kicking team" gets 15 yards then they keep possession.

This idea sucks. Kick offs are awesome.

Goodell is slowly killing football and turning it into fairy ball.
