I'm waiting to see some semi-scientific polls of fans that watch more than 2 football games a year. I'd be absolutely shocked if more than 33% were in favor. Just leave it alone, Roger.

It is getting so I won't recognize the game any more.

edit- I see they used this line in the story. He stole it from me.

I would prefer they leave it but changing extra points is one thing that wouldn't break my heart.

Eliminating the extra point try is foolish. If you want to make the kick less automatic such as the days when DL and OL would try, then simply move the damn ball back to the 12 yard line which equates to a 29 yard extra point try.

Leave 2 point conversion on the 2 yard line.


There, the phantom "problem" is solved, now quit mucking with the damn game! You wanna much with something. FIX THE DAMN CONCESSION PRICES!

Quit kicking extra points and just make everyone go for two after every touchdown.

Obviously, Goodell feels that there is too much kicking in FOOTball.

That's what I was thinking. Although ultimately, that probably would result in more games being decided by kicks, which the NFL may not like.

I'm not for keeping things the same just because that's how they've been. Things need to be more innovative than that. With that being said, I'm not so sure that eliminating the extra point is a good idea. If anything, they should at least try moving the ball back a little and seeing how that works. It is pretty pointless as it currently is.

I got a better idea than messing around with extra points-make the OT rules less complicated by adopting what the NCAA currently does.

They don't matter until they do:


You can also look to the Lions and Eagles game this year where the weather was so bad the two teams couldn't kick and had to go for two every time. That was entertaining, but you lose that if the extra point is automatic.

Quite frankly, just f*ck off Goodell. There are so many issues that need sorting and this isn't even remotely close to one of them. They don't take away from any other plays in the game. And if you are worried about something being almost automatic, how the flying f*ck does making it wholly automatic fix it?

I would be okay with Zero's suggestion of moving it 10 yards further away. I would be okay with forcing teams to go for two every time. But automatic extra points? No. This isn't NFL Blitz (unless we get the late hits too).

Don't have any problem with them removing the extra point, and still allowing teams to go for 2 if they want. Taking 1 point if that fails.

TD - Commercial - extra point - commercial - Defense - commercial TD play games.

Along with removing the Xtrapoint, they should create 4pt FG for >55 yards.

Then every team will go for two because even if they fail to convert, they still get the one point. Where is the risk reward in that?


Simply GIVING a team a point is asinine XFL rules. This is the NFL where EVERY INCH is supposed to matter.

Taking a point away means. They get 7 for a TD, but if they go for 2 and miss, they lose one point so they end up with 6 points just like today.
