It happens everytime and there isn't a rule against it....
Apparent;y you have not read the NFL rules. I have. There is a rule against it
. There just isn't any specific remedy for when it happens. It states clearly in the rules "That it(practice kicking of a field goal) is not allowed ANYWHERE on the field."
The refs allowed the kicker to break a rule. Once the whistle had blown on the TO all play MUST stop. Doing anything to DELAY the game has a remedy ...5 yards and if the play is within the last two minutes of any half of the game ..ten seconds must be un off the clock..which in todays case would have automatically ended the game. Why the refs have been ignoring THAT rule is a mystery to me.http://static.nfl.co...- Rule Book.pdf
