Hypothetical Rule Question


Recommended Posts

The "half the distance to the goal line" penalties are so stupid, yet the people in charge of taking advantage of them are even stupider. How many times have you seen a team call timeout with the play clock running down and they're on their own 1 yard line. Not to mention this scenario.


What should happen in situations like this is not for a team to be "penalized" by the ball being moved back a fraction of a yard, but the first down marker being moved 5 yards further down the field. It's so simple yet I haven't heard anyone ever discuss it.
