New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton in favor of kickoff, replay rule proposals
 
New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton said he is in favor of both of the major rule change proposals being voted on today at the NFL meetings inside New Orleans' Roosevelt Hotel.
Payton, who is a member of the coaches' subcommittee on the competition committee, said he expects the kickoff rule proposal to be tweaked before it goes up for a vote. He definitely expects the touchback to remain at the 20-yard line after coaches and general managers resisted the idea of moving the touchbacks up to the 25. But he does expect to see a vote on whether or not kickoffs will move up from the 30-yard line to the 35-yard line, with players on the kickoff team being required to line up within five yards of the ball.

Yikes, I almost read the comments at the bottom of the story. Never read those. Dipsh**s with too much time on their hands, and a severe case of net-rage.

I like the 35 yard line kickoff. back where it used to be. anything that reverses change is good.

The 25 yard line touchback is idiotic. Why penalize a team for having a Morten.
