Owners should never meet... (Icing the kicker)

Wait a second...this is for double time-outs called by the same team, not just "icing the kicker." Icing the kicker is calling time out right before he kicks it, not calling two time-outs in a row. I thought you weren't allowed to do that anyway! :-?

If they are just talking about any obvious FG situation, that is ludicrous. What happens if you accidentally (or intentionally }:-) ) had too many people on the field and had to call a time out...you wouldn't want to give the team 5 more yards and/or a first down!

This was how I took it as well.It is probably just a smaller penalty now,like 5 yards or something,and they just want to get the game moving a bit faster,and possibly get more game-winning FG's.

I'm pretty sure I've seen consequetive time outs called before to ice the kicker...

But honestly, who cares? I guess I'd be for it, but just because I'm impatient. :-)

Personally, I wouldn't mind much if the vote goes either way, but I do believe that teams should have the right to use timeouts as they see fit.

Doesn't really matter to me. I think most kickers even suspect there will be a timeout to have more time to prepare. I am almost surprised more coaches DON'T call them to make the kicker go quicker.

I dont even think icing the kicker works anyways


It does work my friend, the 98 vikings are on the verge of putting away the falcons... falcons call a timeout and Gary Anderson has a few moments to ponder his perfect season.. he sets up, the kick, the attempt is wide.. resulting in an overtime loss to the falcons.

You could say that it was b/c of the icing but nobody really knows. He could have missed the field goal anyways. I think by giving the kicker more time to think about it actually helps him. He can take a few more practice kicks into the net and get himself more focused.

More time =more success anyway you look at it. If a QB has more time to make his throw, it helps. If an NBA players has more time to shoot the game winning shot, it helps.

If you don't call a timeout then he is rushed into the kick which, I think, he then has a higher probability of missing it.

-Just my two cents
