HoosierCat Posted March 14 Report Share Posted March 14 Quote During upcoming league meetings, clubs will discuss the following proposed rules changes. All proposals must be approved by 75% (24) of the owners to be adopted. Here’s a look at the 2023 club rules change proposals. By Philadelphia; amends Rule 5, Section 1, Article 2, to permit the use of zero ("0") as a jersey numeral; to allow kickers and punters to use any jersey numeral between 0-49 and 90-99. By Philadelphia; amends Rule 6, Section 1, to permit a team to maintain possession of the ball after a score by substituting one offensive play (4th-and-20 from the kicking team's 20-yard line) for an onside kickoff attempt. By Los Angeles Chargers; amends Rule 4, Section 6, Article 3 and Section 7, Article 4, to make the adjustment of the play clock following an instant replay reversal consistent with other timing rules. By Detroit; amends Rule 15, Section 3, Article 9, to expand the coaches' challenge system to include personal fouls called on the field. By Detroit; amends Rule 15, Section 1, to provide clubs more opportunities for a third challenge. By Detroit; amends Rule 15, Section 3, to expand the replay official's jurisdiction to allow for consultation regarding penalty assessment. By Houston; amends Rule 15, Section 1, Article 2, to expand the replay official's jurisdiction to allow for review on failed fourth-down attempts. By Los Angeles Rams; amends Rule 15, Section 1 and Section 3, to make fouls for roughing the passer called on the field subject to replay assist and/or review by a coach's challenge. By New York Jets; amends Rule 12, Section 2, Article 6, to expand the crackback prohibition to players who go in motion and go beyond the center to block ("split-flow block") a defender below the waist. https://operations.nfl.com/updates/the-game/2023-rules-change-proposals/ I doubt the replay and challenge proposals get a lot of traction, the game is already too slow due to all the stoppages to check calls. The first and 20 as an alternative to an onside kick is interesting. I could go for that. Totally down with zero as a jersey number. Will buy a 0 jersey with “MY HERO” on the nameplate and if you get that, congrats, you too are old, old, old and will soon die like me.
