    I’m ok with that too, this is suggesting get rid of the slide option.

    Yep, first rule that needs to be adjusted is the QB slide. QB’s take advantage of it by literally waiting until the very last second to start sliding. The rule should be until you’ve completely given yourself up, you can get hit just like any other ball carrier. If the QB doesn’t want to get hit, then you better slide a couple of yards before the defender.

    I was going to say this if someone else didn't. Ridiculous rule.

    no... fumbling the ball - especially out of the endzone - should not be rewarded by giving ball back to incompetent O

    rule is fine... dont want D to have the rock.. keep control of the rock. 100% on the O

    The fumble rule just seems inconsistent. If the incompetent O fumbles out of bounds on the 5 yard line, they get the ball back at the 5 yard line (or spot of the fumble). However, if the incompetent O fumbles it out of bounds in the end zone, they lose possession. Huge difference. Are there any other rules or even penalties that result in a possession change?

    I know that realistically, this almost never happens so the discussion is mostly academic....it just seems odd to me.

    Consider it like this using war as the comparison.
    A team gets the ball attempting to enter the opponents house.
    If you lose the special weapon needed to make taking their home worth while, into their house, you’re not getting it back. You lost control into the opponents house.

    perfectly good rule, no change required.

    I agree about the oddity of it... what could be an answer... give O ball at 25 ... which is still in FG range?

    I wouldn’t mind fumbling out of bounds being a turnover honestly.
