    SIGH NFL owners will vote on moving kickoffs to the 40

    Three years after the NFL moved kickoffs from the 30-yard line to the 35, it may be time to move kickoffs five yards forward again.
    The Competition Committee announced today that owners will vote at next week’s league meeting on whether to move kickoffs again, this time to the 40-yard line.

    They might as well just vote to take away the kick off because that is where this is going.

    That will have more Touchbacks if it moves to the 40 yard line. Gosh Goodell is ruining the game.

    That's what I mean. By moving it to the 40 yard line no one will return it. They should just say **** it now and do away with it.

    Almost every kick is a touchback as is. This basically solidifies that even more.

    The 40 yard line??? My niece could kick it out of the End Zone from the 40. That's dumb. I am cool with moving Extra points back a little. Extra Points are made 99.6% of the time.

    This explains why Devin Hester signed with ATL immediately...

    If they move it to the 40, they should award the kicking team one point if they kick it through the goalposts.
