Coaches are looking for adjustments to the targeting rule to make it more in line with the Flagrant Foul rule in college basketball.

Tier 1 would be those hits without malicious intent and would carry a 15 yard penalty but no ejection.

Tier 2 would be those hits deemed malicious and would carry both the 15 yards and ejection from the game.

Also asking for players who receive multiple Tier 2 fouls to be suspended more than one game.

I like the ideas. Too many games have turned on questionable ejections recently. This allows officials a little more leeway in their assessment of borderline hits.
