Royal, a bitter opponent ol the new rule that allows two noinu after a touchdown if the conversion conversion is made by run or pass, would put in a rule that call? for either running the kick out of the end zone er putting the ball on the 8-yard line. Under pregent mlej it is an automatic tpuchhaek and the defensive defensive team gets the ball on its 20.

He say* "It puts too mueh pressure on the players and coaches." He diagrams his new proposal like this: Team A moves the ball from its 30 to its opponent's 40 and can't move further. "Nobody is much interested when you've got the ball in your own end of the field, but they are when you're within your opponent's 40.
