I swear I saw this used in the last couple of years....

I saw this in a preseason game between the 49ers and the Chargers. It was in '86 or '87; can't remember. Right at the end of the first half, the Chargers punted from inside their 10 yard line. The Niners called for a fair catch just about mid-field. Mike Cofer lined up to kick about a 60 yard field goal and hit the crossbar. So close!

The Wikipedia Fair Catch Kick article has this line: "At one time a very similar rule existed in rugby union called goal from mark."

So it sounds like a leftover remnant from rugby.


Why does this rule exist?


Déjà vu!


Never heard of it. Interesting.
