National Football League has struck back with the most sweeping set of rule changes in 40 vears> It s an exciting package said commissioner Pete Rozelle, unveiling the changes that are designed to open up offences and reduce the roll field goals have played Besides introducing a 15-mmute sudden-death overtime period to settle ties, the NFL moved the goal posts to the end line meaning that field goal kickers will have to boot those three- pointers 10 yards farther than they have been Also missed field goals will return the ball to the line of scrimmage or 20-yard line, whichever is farther from the goal line Other changes also were adopted to protect wide receivers from the downfield battering they have been exposed to reducing the penalty for offensive holding, tripping and illegal use of hands to 10 yards from 15, and making illegal back blocks that have caused many injuries Not since 1933 when the league moved to allow forward passing trorn anywhere behind the line ot scrimmage have such widespread alterations been made in the sport That was the same year the goal posts were moved from the back of the end zone to the goal line to encourage field goal kicking But in those days, guys weren't kicking 55- yard field said Jim Kensil, executive- director of the NFL So part of the new look for 1974 will be the return of the goal posts to the end line Field goal kickers reacted predictably They are less than thrilled with the changes These changes are going to make the game even more conservative than it is now, said Garo Yepremian of Miami Dolphins Moving the goal posts to the back of the end zone is one of the worst rules they could possibly have put in Coaches will send in their punter instead of trying the long held goals and all we will have are punters booming the ball through the end zone 'They wanted to bring about more scoring, but I think now there will be even less said Jan Stenerud of Kansas City Chiefs "The kickers are getting caught up in something we had nothing to do with The problem is that the defences are too strong Rozelle agreed with that I felt the coaches were doing good a job with their the commissioner said "Some of what was working before offensively wasn't working now The owners wanted to see more offence in the game There was strong sentiment lor the changes The Canadian Football League hasn't consideied overtime games because "we only had four ties last said secretary Greg Fulton "Unlike the United States we can score singles on missed field goals or on punts so we get fev ties, he said "As a result we have never had to consider going into overtime He added that there would be no point in moving the goal posts to the back of the end zone because the Canadian field already is longer and the end zones are 15
