Another reason Canadian football is better than U.S. football: the puntback gambit (video)

So in Canadian football they have this rule where if your team punts the ball, the other team can field it and punt it right back … and after it travels 10 yards, anyone from either team can recover it for a fresh set of downs.

That’s what happens here, as Winnipeg High School fields a punt and punts it back over the heads of its opponents, where a Winnipeg player scooped up the ball and ran it in for a touchdown.

I believe they have the same rules in Calvinball.

    less exciting than an actual punt return or blocked punt.
