Think back to the Eskimos under Don Matthews. We faked every second field goal, did direct snaps, double reverses, all with good conversion rates. It wasn't random "creativity" run amok. See: Ales Hemsky
Those are all high risk trick plays - with maybe the direct snap being the least.. so really a bad example in which you argued against yourself.

Novel plays can be inherently risky and a tiger mom thinks in a linear, rigid fashion, and would stick with only safe or old school methods.
