Well the problem is that its you can't use the ball as prop and you can't even use the goal post as a prop either now. That is the rule that was changed.

True, so setting up some kind of prop by the fans would also draw a flag.

Whats interesting is that I think these rule changes are approved by the players association. Its not just Goodell being an ass.

I could be wrong on that, I'm still searching. I may be confusing fines approved by the CBA with rules approved by the owners.

I am pretty sure these rules have no need to be approved by the PA.

That would mean you can/t spike it either? That SUCKS!

Yes, you can spike it. That is an accepted football move.

Because now they have to cover a return that would likely be a touchback if he didn't get the penalty. It's a selfish act on his part.
