1) Get rid of the following penalties on punts: Holding, block in the back, gunners running out of bounds for too long. Seriously, anything goes on punt returns except for unnecessary roughness penalties

This is the only thing that is needed, no need for other extravagant ideas. I can't even tell if some of you guys are serious

Honestly, I thought this was one of the less serious suggestions.

What's the line between "anything goes" and "unnecessary roughness?"

 

And yes, I'm serious: do away with the kickoff.

Every time someone does an Australian style punt, they have to yell "crickey"

This isn't a rule already? What the deuce!?

Take the punt returner out of the play altogether.  The defense goes for the block every time.  Wherever the ball initially hits the the turf after the punt (no extra roll) is where the other team takes over.  Fake punts are still allowed.
