I'm pretty sure in "real" football the team has the option to punt or kick. From NFL Rulebook:
1. In addition to a kickoff, the other free kick is a kick after a safety (safety kick). A punt may be used (a punt may not be used on a kickoff).
2. On a safety kick, the team scored upon puts ball in play by a punt, dropkick, or placekick without tee. No score can be made on a free kick following a safety, even if a series of penalties places team in position. (A field goal can be scored only on a play from scrimmage or a free kick after a fair catch.)
Anytime you post things from either the NFL or NCAA rulebook, it will always come back as "not NFL sim or NCAA sim" they dont play by those rules. This is exactly the reason we need an Official GLB rulebook. http://goallineblitz.com/game/forum_thread.pl?thread_id=2741605

it's a Game. Smiley Emoticon for sarcasm should be implied.
