NFL owners approve proposal to penalize hip-drop tackles

On Monday, the NFL held league meetings and there was a strong show of support for the proposed penalty for hip-drop tackles. The measure passed in a vote by team owners, announced by the league. This new rule change means that any hip-drop tackle during games will result in a 15-yard penalty for the offending player, and they could also face fines from the league.

However, not everyone is happy with this change. The NFL Players Association has opposed the proposal, stating that it would cause confusion for players, coaches, and others involved in the sport. They argue that it is a rule change that will make it harder to understand and enforce during games.

Despite this opposition, the decision has been made and everyone will now have to adjust to the enforcement of this new rule during the upcoming 2024 season. It remains to be seen how this change will affect the game, but one thing is certain – players will have to be more careful when tackling opponents in order to avoid penalties and fines.
