Major ones and/or recent ones, anyway. Thanks to our friends, the Steelers.

Won't copy well, so here's the link.

Kickoffs should be moved back to the 35. Before this rule was put in place the percentage of teams who won in overtime while losing the coin flip was much more even. Especially with the rules put in place for kickoffs this year, it doesn't make sense for another bring the offense rule to be left in place.

Wow, it reminds me of the US government with the sheer volume of rule changes. Make rules for the sake of making rules... Since 2000, it's been redonkulous.
