I think the kick skill needs a buff.

If you foul with a player who has kick it adds +1 to the AV break roll.


What do you think?

Nah... that's what DP is for. Kick is pretty useful in its own right.

I disagree with your conclusion.

I agree it (might)needs a slight buff but not this way.

Getting rid or changing high kick would do.

Kick is useful already, but let's face it, a fair percentage of us like to pretend kick is +1 to fouling in our heads anyway...

I'd say what would be the harm? Gives team that might otherwise not take it a reason to as well.

Okay, and how bout Kick off return adds an AV check to the kicker... like he's twisting their foot too! So its a double foul!

I always figured a player with Kick skill should be allowed to deliberately fail a pickup without causing a turnover i.e. "kick" the grounded ball rather than try in vain to pick it up in multiple TZs, hoping for a good bounce.

Kick is a very good skill already. Buffing it seems silly.

How about knowing how to (offside) kick automatically leads to a Blitz!?

kick. strong, precise legs, right?

make the kicking foul able to push the fouled (and everything else it could chainpush) like ball and chain does.

I'd like to see two more kicking skills added in, not as good as kick, but still good. Like one that let you reroll the scatter die ("Directional Kicker") or something. Maybe that one should be a P skill....

Yes. How about instead of buffing the skill, we get a 'kicker' positional back? Any team that has a 'lineman' player may upgrade a player to a kicker for......10/20k.

Comes with kick skill and has a 'kick' style attack, like kickers had in 2nd ed. Possibly a block that can't be combined with any skills (block, tackle, MB etc) but doesn't cause a turnover if failed?

Due to being this isn't so much a blocking contest, but a one sided attack that needs to be rebuffed. Kicker always goes prone after the attack.
