    They are fired if they take a knee? (Why is it that the WNBA is allowed to have their normal crowd during the pandemic? 2 dozen or so?)

    Don't some of them take a knee for prayer?

    Yeah no special unknown rules.
    Make all the rules known and enforced equally to all the teams.
    Wouldn't that be a roar thing?

    1:Jacksonville
    2: Cleveland

    1) Field Goals
    Points for the field goal should be based on distance
    1 point for every 10 yards

    So if you are on the 40 yard line - that would be 4 points
    If you are on the 29 yard line - that would be 2 points

    Now lets say on 3rd down - you are on the 9 yard line - but on that play
    you are pushed back to the 31 yard line. On 4th down, a field goal would only
    be worth one point, since the line of scrimmage was at the 9 yard line.


    2) Tie Breakers
    If two teams are tied for a playoff position - This would be the final tie breaker prior to a coin toss. Should be the team with the lowest number of penalty yards.
    a) against the team they are tied with
    b) Against all teams for the season.

    Current tie beakers: NFL Tiebreaking Procedures | NFL.com


    3) A team will be allowed 5 - Fifth downs per game
    But no more than
    A) 2 per qtr
    B) 3 per half.

    Touchdowns 3 points.
    No extra points after touchdowns.
    Field goals 1 point.
    Eject players who demonstrate unwarranted and unnecessary violence (no warnings/no ingame appeals).
    Any referee taking gifts or anything extra banned.

    Overtime should be like college rules, except a possession should start at the 40 instead of the 25.

    After deep contemplation, the best rule change to improve outcomes would be mandatory retirement at age 40. :)
