    I would like to introduce Exhibit B into evidence:

    http://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com...iants-steelers

    If two guys are fighting for the football, I'm sorry, but the offense shouldn't be awarded a first down at the spot of contact. It's simply not fair. If an official feels as if contact was made by the defender, throw the flag. However, why not just make it a 15 yard penalty? Now, if a defender pulls an Ike Taylor and face-guards a receiver, pulls one or both of his arms down as he's trying to catch the football, or simply drags him down after being severely beaten on a long pass, then yes, penalize that man as many yards as are necessary.
    This clearly shows the same idea being put forth on a Steelers blog in 2012. So if I'm guilty of stealing this idea from Chazoe, he is just as guilty of stealing it, and from a Steelers fan nonetheless.

    So which way is it gonna be, chaz? Did we both steal it, or is my idea my own?

    As BW's representation, the accusations of thievery still stand, and as such we cannot withdraw our legal compliant.

    If it makes you guys feel any better, I didn't read either proposal.

    This guy came up with it before it was cool to either of you on his typewriter at a coffee shop where he drank locally sourced organic tea so you guys are both wrong. He transcribed the entire thing onto a vintage tape recorder and had it transferred to vinyl in a lost dialect by a translator of the language known as Kwikionobo from a lost Amazonian Tribe:

    His favorite team is the Boston Bees who played one season back in 1938. You've probably never heard of them.

    And on topic of the thread, I would change Holding calls on the offense from 10 yards to 5 yards. 10 yards seems so arbitrary and a holding call almost always kills a drive. I think the average yards per play in the NFL is about 5 or 6 so I never understood why it backs the team up 10 yards.

    The defense is punished so much more unfairly that I'm fine with a holding call being that harsh. They get the down over again. If it was 5 yards and loss of down I'd be okay with that.

    Holding needs to be called more. It stops a sack and damage to a QB, and when your team is predicated upon a pass rush and it's not called it's damaging. It should be 15 yards.

    God there are many. Illegal contact is definitely toward the top of the list. That's not a penalty in college and there's even MORE offense there than in the NFL, so it's not like you're significantly nerfing the passing game.

    I utterly despise spot of the foul PI as well. With the way they call PI spot of the foul is just...broken. It lets the officials literally decide the outcome of games at times. I'd be ok with a clear path rule like Wave suggested, but I wouldn't mind at all if it were just 15 yards at most. 40+ yards of penalty yardage for slight contact is insane.

    I think most people recognize that hits to head needed to be removed, but I'd like to see that penalty be reviewable. It's easy for an official to see shoulder-to-shoulder as head-to-head in real time, so use replay to get the call right. It's not hard.

    Which leads me into the thing I think I'd want changed most, which is abolishing the ridiculous "indisputable evidence" standard of replay. Being a ref in football is HARD, why should the call on the field made in real time be more valuable than what you can see in a slow motion replay? In like 95% of replays, even if the play is close, you can definitively confirm or overturn the call on the field. Make a reasonable call based on what you see in the video replay, and stop giving so much credit to the call on the field. The only way you should have to defer to call on the field for lack of evidence would be if it's literally impossible to see a good angle on replay, such as a fumble recovery or spot of the ball when a player is completely covered by bodies.

    I agree with everything you said, except your last paragraph.

    The PI call shouldn't be such a big penalty BECAUSE its so arbitrary and judgemental. But then you want to turn around and give the ref the power to change a call with arbituary judgement. That would give the ref to CHANGE a call based on judgement and maybe's. Not sure I agree with you on that one

    In a one score game, inside he two minute warning, plays for negative yardage would stop the clock.

    I like it. A lot. How much more exciting would games be knowing you CAN'T just take a knee? You MUST run the ball and you MUST gain yardage in order to keep the clock moving. Good call foreigner.
