Proposed Rule Change Tabs Saluting, Not Kneeling, As Effective Clock Management Tactic

“While nothing is official, the idea of going from kneeling to saluting is worth a discussion,” explains Roger Goodell. “As happy and proud we at the NFL are of certain traditions, sometimes, elements of the game, if left untouched, can become stale. Take extra points for example. We identified an issue with those plays and despite some loud criticism, we moved forward with a rule change that has noticeably transformed the game. By altering how teams operate in the Victory Formation — forcing them to salute rather than kneel — we hope to see the same type of transformation in how games are played, specifically in their closing moments.”
