    First big flaw in the kickoff rule exposed. Return team was penalized on the previous field goal and the penalty was assessed on the kickoff. But, a touchback punishes the kicking team severely.

    Decent game so far. I’m impressed by the officiating so far in pretty much every game I’ve watched.

    IF the kicking team can't refuse the penalty I'd like to see the XFL get creative with the rule.

    For instance, Let's say that it was a 10 yard penalty. Have the kickoff from the regular spot, then enforce that penalty after the return. If the return went to the 50, back it to the 40 for a 1st and 10....or leave it at the 50 for a 1st and 20. If the return went for a TD, too bad.....it's 1st and Goal at the 10.

     

    End of Rant.

    I think that’s the easiest solution. Enforce it on the result of the return. 
     

    Some rules guy tried explaining the strategy for the kicking team as it was happening, because the guys on the both were questioning how it’s actually penalizing the return team, and he really had no good answer.

    PLay is getting better!   
    Landry Jones looks like he is done with the injury.

     

    As for the penatly thing...I would be good with it adding to the return, or the kicking team just needs to kick it short, may be move where the two teams set up by 10 yards as well can pin em deep

    Did he manage to look like something more than total suck before getting hurt?

    Indoor/Arena adds it to the return for such reasons, sounds reasonable to me

    3 INTs in the first QTR, and a fumble returned for a TD before he got hurt on  QB sneak. He was in some major pain!
