Republican congressman Cliff Stearns has introduced legislation that would impose a single steroid policy upon all professional sports, including two years suspension for the first offense. You know, I've often said that the problem with the government is that it just isn't forcing enough Draconian regulation on American business. (Question that I know is unrelated to football: Does this mean that the Raptors and Blue Jays can juice all they want with no punishment?)
After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
