2015 Rule Change Proposals

March 27th 2015 at 3:25 PM by dbo

The rules committee has sent the following changes to the board of governors for approval:


  • Move the scrimmage for kicked converts to the 25-yard line (so a 32-yard kick attempt).
  • Missed kicked convert attempts are live and may be run back for a 2-point score by the defending team.
  • Justification: 99.4% of kicked converts were successful last year. Field goals kicked between 31 and 33 yards had a 81% success rate.
  • Teams wishing to attempt a 2-point convert may scrimmage from the 3-yard line.
  • Justification: 7 out of 23 or 30% of 2-point convert attempts were successful last year.
  • Option: Governors have the option of testing during the 2015 pre-season moving the convert attempt to the 10-yard line and increasing the score value to a 3-point convert for running or passing the ball over the goal line.
