What are some of the strangest rules/penalties you've seen enforced in any sport?
Roughing the snapper exist as a protection for snappers, just like a roughing the passer exist to protect QBs; it isn't strange. Prior to the roughing the snapper rule, people were lining up like 4 guys up on the snapper and running over him while his head was still down from snapping. It is a very vulnerable position.
