    Back in the day the field goal posts were right on the endzone line? Why and what made them move them back to the back of the endzone? What year did that happen?

    I think it was in the 50's when they moved them back. I'm purely speculating, but I'm going to say they moved them back because dudes kept running into them or in order to make the kicking game more challenging.
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    I wonder if it had to do with interference defensively also. Offenses using the posts as a screen? Possibility?

    I bet some teams did and used that successfully for that purpose. I know the Pats would use that to their advantage. It's only cheating if you get caught huh Bill?

    Ocho Cinco could use it for a pole dancing touchdown celebration. Has potential. Maybe throw a couple smaller poles on the sidelines and let the cheerleaders... Oooh wait I digress. Problem is Sammie Parker would run into it almost every play.
