    Weigh In: New rule about QB ball versus rule about K ball

    This has been bugging me for a few weeks now.

    A few years ago the NFL instituted a rule that no longer allowed kickers to have access to the balls they would be kicking in a game before the game started. They applied a K stamp to the kicking ball. From my recollection it was because the NFl wanted more parody in the league, to make the last minute kicks more exciting because of a slicker and more wild ball.

    So why have they now instituted this new rule where the QB and the equipment manager can scuff, wear in, have sex with balls before the games?

    I do not understand why the NFL would make one rule increasing parody then just two or three years later add a rule making it easier for qb's to hang onto the ball and thus less parody.

    Please weigh in and straighten me out.

    :\

    Because the league babies quarterbacks... except ones named Bulger.

    I'm bummed Nick, no one wanted to chime in about this injustice in the NFL.

    Sounds to me like the NFL is trying to give the QB's every advantage it can thus increasing scoring. Obviously the NFL feels the majority of the NFL fans would rather watch a high scoring shoot out game instead of the old Black and Blue games of 10-7.

    What are they making parodies of? I know I cold use a good laugh on occasion...

    Yes, I agree the NFL has strived for parity so the "on any given Sunday" hope remains alive in th efans of the "lesser" teams.

    Salary caps and free agency have combined to create more parity.

    GO RAMS!!
