I don't know when they started using the Field goal nets but I do know its for safety purposes... People would see the kick comming and jump for the ball and end up on top of people or even falling down the stands and getting injured.

i don't know when they first started to use them but I know what there for. they used to kick them into the stands and hit people. also people used to fight for the footballs and get hurt

A while back, a fan during a monday night game, jump onto the sideline from the stands and caught a ball that was kicked.
