Coaches to be penalized for leaving sideline

13 posts in this topic

We have the Brady rule, now we have the Jim Harbaugh rule. The NFL has stated that Head Coaches who leave the sideline and go on the field to argue with an official, will be a 15 yard penalty.

[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif][size=4]“It’s about enforcement and point of emphasis. So coaches who, after appropriate warning, continue to venture out will pay the price with a penalty that potentially could hurt their team.”[/size][/font][/color][/quote]

I must say, to me I believe this should be able to help coaches be more displicined with their players. We see that players take on their coaches personality and while I totally understand why coaches get upset at obvious situations(penalty or not a penalty) but stay on the sideline and show some restraint.

In return, the NFL should EXPAND Instant Replay to allow them to challenge ANY Penalty 15 yards or more.

I think they should also change the rules where coaches don't lose the ability to challenge as long as they continue to get them right.

Ok now that would be a cool new emoticon for the board to use lol. Yeah this should be interesting to see if coaches like Harbaugh, Schwartz and other wild coaches settle down.

What a punitive rule. Watching coaches flip is part of what make the game fun. And no one gets hurt!

I don't know. It goes too far sometimes. Like Jim in the huddle during the black out. John flips out plenty but doesn't leave the designated area very much.

Sometimes refs deserve to get blasted... They already flag you if you go over the line i.e. the 'manure' chant.

Whatever, the coaches will adjust although I hate these 'judgement' calls by refs.

I find Jim Harbaughs tantrums highly annoying. I think it's a stupid rule though and I don't think this will stay. To many coaches won't be able to control themselves. They might get ejected if they get flagged another 15 yards for something.
