Dick Fosbury would love this thread!
I still think that’s too ambiguous. A change of possession could happen the very next play and then that player is eligible again. That’s not enough time to make it hurt, imo.For all injury time outs, the injured player should be required to sit out until a change of possession regardless of time on the clock.

12 snapsIt doesn’t need to hurt, if a change of possession occurs the next play that means the other team scored or there was a turnover. It’s still enough to discourage a coach from using it as they cannot predict the future. I think your punishment is way to harsh and not necessary. Imagine a team being forced to sit a QB for 15 snaps just because he got the wind knocked out of him, no QB flops.
Under 2 minutes I like the NFL rule, a timeout or 10 second run off or delay of game penalty.
That part is debatable.
Where I think it really has to be prevented is with less than 4-5 minutes in the half. The punishment for doing it has to be severe enough to negate it completely and if that dings a team for a legit injury, thems the breaks. Both teams would be on equal footing.
Moss’s injury wouldn’t have stopped play, though. It caused a change of possession and there would’ve been a tv timeout anyway.Injured player should be out for the series for eval, if ref determines its a flop make it a 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalty automatic 1st down and done. I dont see the penalty coming into play often as you need to take every injury serious and often difficult to tell. Ie if it happened under other circumstances we would have thought moss injury was fake. The sitting out the series for eval falls in line with player safety and would probably take care of most.

When 17 fell down like he took a bullet to the spine it was after a big run and first
He invented the modern method of high jumping. People named it the Fosbury Flop
He's the lead singer of a nineties grunge band......Fuck, now I have to Google Dick Fosbury.
