The rules changes approved by the CFL Board of Governors for 2023 (with commentary):
- Score a rouge (single) on kickoffs that reach the deadline without being touched. (Minor change, but will increase the number of singles scored on kickoffs.)
- Provide option to score a safety when a holding infraction is called in the goal area while the ball is held in the goal area. (Not clear if this is for offensive plays only, but I believe it must be universal.)
- Restriction of defensive formations on special teams kicking scrimmages. (A player safety change.)
- Penalty for avoidable contact with an official. (No brainer. Incentive to clean up the sidelines.)
- Move the drive start position up 5 yards in three scenarios. (Housekeeping.)
- Only one of jersey numbers 0 and 00 can be dressed for a game. (Technology is broken, let’s fix the jerseys.)
